Howling Sound coming from Front right wheel side

I have a 1990 Model Suzuki ALTO (800cc) right handed drive car havingmanual transmission. A few days back all of sudden I started noticingweird howling noise which seemed to be coming from front right wheelside. Sometimes it feels like it is coming from right from under thedriver seat.
It occurs intermittently and it is only there during1st or 2nd gear when I am slow and trying to turn slightly towardsright side. Occasionally it can also occur while turning towards leftin 1st and 2nd gear. I cant describe the exact sound but it sounds like(Waooon, Waooon). Never occured at high speeds.
Please help as I need to have an idea before I talk to the car mechanic

I think its a problem with your timing belt. It is too tight. Thats why it is making such a sound. Tell your mechanic to loosen it a bit.

A low howling sound coming from right front tire on a four wheel drive?


It most definately could be, lift the vehicle to raise the wheel off the ground, firmly hd the tire at the 5 & 11 oclock position ( I say 5&11 to keep your hand from directly under the wheel in case it isn't support well and comes down, don't want your hand crushed) then try to move the tire back and forth, any mkvement indicates a bad bearing.

The first thing I would check is for a bad wheel bearing. If the noise lessens when turning left than I would look at the left front first. Chalk the rear wheels or set the emergency brake. Put the transmission in neutral. Jack up the left side of the car. Grab the coil spring and rotate the tire by hand. If you can feel/hear the noise than your on the right track with the bad wheel bearing. I can give you instructions on how to replace if you need them.

You don't state what vehicle it is. If it is a front wheel drive, check the CV joint, although this would be more prone to making a noise whilst in a turn.

There is a continuous clicking sound, when the car is moving, coming from the front-right wheel area. it sounds like it could be the front wheel bearings?


It is most likely a torn boot that covers the constant velocity joint on the front drive axle. This can be verified by looking behind the wheel and visually inspect the axle boot that is mounted directly to the axle. If it is torn, you will also see grease that has spread around the underside of the vehicle. There is also another boot on the transmission side too, check that one also.

2003 chevy blazer front end howling and also rear clunking.


the howling sound could be a window with a little opening, check if your window was totally closed. the clunkin? or clickin sound you hear could be the road salt or ice thats being thrown to your mud guard by the wheel. anyway an actual inspection is recomended, pep boys can do a courtesy check for free.

HOWLING NOISES


Did you check your Transmission fluid and your differential fluids make sure there up and I don't know if you checked your rear wheel bearings or not, You can usually tell a wheel bearing when you are driving the car at highway speeds and you go around a corner and it get quite a bit louder Depending on what way you are turning if your turning right and it gets louder it will usually be the right side front or rear. the left usually the left front or back. some cases I have even heard Axles making a Howling Noise. Please let me know what you come up with. And Thanks in advance If I helped you out any. Bear001
