Likely you have a bad axle bearing. Unless it is really really bad, it will not make noise up in the air because there is no weight or load on it.

I have recently replaced rear wheel bearing ( driver's side) and this morning I am staring to hear a humming noise either coming from drivers side or from engine ,,I can only hear noise when driving above...


Could be another wheel bearing. You can jack up each wheel and rotate it to see if there is a difference in other wheels.

I had a noise like that in my Acura. Turned out to be low on transmission oil.
Hope this helps.

Clunking noise when you turn the steering wheel while driving


The noise will be either the universal joint on the steering column or a component in the steering rack or outer tie rod ends, get someone to sit in the car and move the wheel slightly left and right and have a look and you will be able to see and hear where the noise is coming from

Loud noise when driving on the interstate, so loud...


Where is the noise coming from? If it is coming from your wheels then it would be your wheel bearings. They can get so loud that you cant hear a thing inside your car due to vibration.

Creaky sound upon tapping brake, and brown right rear tire


Looks like you need to change the brake pads sooner than later, the brown residue is the brake dust and the burning smell might be the dust hitting the the tyre.

I have a 2001 ford focus SE Wagon, while i'm driving down little slopes or when I turn tight on left or right turns there is a rubbing, grinding noise


wheel bearings are worn out

when you take a left turn you should hear it on the right wich means that the right one is done...
if you take a right curve you should hear it on the left..,

now you should be able to distinguish if the sound is coming from the front or the rear just by ear...

but i would say that if you're driving downhill and you hear the sound it means that the front ones are done because most of the weight of the car is transferred to the front bearings...

Very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only


you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.
