Roaring sound front left wheel, maybe a wheel bearing?

There's a roaring sound coming from my front driver's side wheel. i can feel it in the floorboards, and it gets louder when i turn to the left, not so much the right. i just got a new wheel bearing about 1-2 years ago. my tires are old. it almost sounds like its rubbing or grinding something whenever i turn?

It could be the the wheel bearing...again, as you said. I also would like to know if you had the front end aligned when you changed the wheel bearing. If the tires have excessive wear on the outside or inside tread, you are out of alignment and BOTH wheel bearings need to be changed! It could also be the brakes wearing thin...check it out!

SOURCE: Loud roaring noise in front, steering wheel has vibration, replaced tires didn't help.

Wheel bearings are likly and I've changed many to solve this problem but it's esy to pick the wrong one with e vehical jacked and on jack stands suporting the car by the lower control arms ( normal ride hieght) run the car with a driver and listen to ti run , of course theres no load on the powertrain so there will be some lash ( power on to power decline ) cheack up. The roaring noise can be isolated by puting a sounding bar ( long metal rod ( sr=crew driver)) other against the part till the sound is rounded up rear but possible the carrier bearings in the (rear end) front drive. The axel bearings and on some units the carrier bearing thats in the CV axel on the block. Sounding rod will find and change the noisey part. Professional help is a good idea if you can't carry this out saftly

What is this roaring sound in the front right axle


If the roaring sound get louder at highway speeds try veering side to side in your lane safely of course to see if the roar noise changes,this would indicate a hub & wheel bearing assembly issue and would need to be replaced.

I just had my 2007 Volvo S40 right front wheel bearing replaced. However, there is still a roaring noise coming from the front of the car when I turn the wheel to the right. My mechanic told me that...


Turning to the right changes the load on the left, but that
isn't the problem

The problem is poor diagnoses & failure to replace both
wheel bearings when one fails

After all-- they both have the same mileage on them

Roaring in front left side while driving


From what you are describing, it sounds like you have a faulty Wheel Bearing on the left side. When pressure is applied to the bearing (turning left) the noise will go away due to the pressure. When there is no pressure, you'll get the noise.

The car is making a roaring noise going down the road, if I turn the steering wheel to the left it stops, if I turn to the right it gets louder. Any ideas?


Good Morning. What this sounds like is the exact diagnosing of a front hub assembly really not that pricey either, and a common problem. Last one I did a few days ago even with the noise calming down going the other way ended up being both hubs. I hope this helps and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Thanks,
Joey
