Humming noise from front bearings on Xsara Picasso

There is a humming noise from the front wheels which i know will be the front wheel bearings. I have been told that the bearings have to be pressed in and out. new sdk bearings cost 42.00. I want to attack this myself but not done this before, however, I have just been quoted 40 for a new hub with an sdk bearing already pressed in (which is cheaper than just the bearing). How easy is this job to do if i just replace the hub instead? do i need any special tools?

yes you need a press to remove the bearing and hub , you can use the same hub as long as where the hub goes into the bearing is not scored in any way . the knuckle would have to be taken off and sent to a machine shop if you done have a press. and you should also use caution when putting the nut back on thr axle.

It isn't a particularly hard job but there are a few techniques that you need to know.
I wouldn't recommend you do it yourself but I would recommend you do it under supervision of someone who knows their stuff.
Retensioning the bearings correctly is extremely important.

not press fitted, standard tapered bearings, if 4X4 it is a little more involved, just dont misplace any of the smaller parts and you will be fine.

Reason for humming noise even after changing wheel bearings of car


Depending on how the noise is affected by your driving, it could be an axle joint or the differential in the transaxle.
If it is coming from the back instead of the front you may still need hub bearings.

I have aloud humming noise from the frontend of my car i thought it was a wheel bearing but it was not any ideas is it the axle


im not sure the type of car or teuck this is but a humming sound from the front end is common with a bad tire or the most common is a wheel bearing, have you checked both wheel bearings? iu have worked on many wheel bearing noises and i will tell you it sounds like its on one side but its on the other side or in the rear, this humming i assume is when its rolling and gets louder with speed, its got to be a tire bearing or in the trany if its front wheel drive.

JUST GOT TWO NEW FRONT TIRES,(AND BALANCING). NOW THERE IS A CONSTANT NOISE COMING FROM THE FRONT END AND GETS LOUNDER AS ITS ACCELERATED. SOUNDS LIKE A RUBBING OR HUMMING NOISE.


Sounds like a wheel bearing or bearings going bad.

Humming or 'howling' noises are indicative of a bad wheel bearing especially on acceleration.

Good luck on this repair.

Loud humming noise from drivers side front end changed hub assembly still have noise ????????????????


humming noise usually comes from wheel bearings. did you change that with a new bearing? also choppy or worn tires can cause humming noise that sounds like bad wheel bearings. rotate your tires and see if the noise changes. if so its tires. also even if it sounds like its from the right it could very well be a bad bearing in another location.

Steering creeks when turning left or right. front wheel noise.


My advise is when u get a humming noise when banking left or right. Its beter to change both left and right wheel bearing and ball joints. Cause if u think about it those parts are put on at the same time . So if u think about it they have the same where in Terre . left or right hope this helps you.
