Humming noise comming from front left wheel area of 03 Sebring

Left front wheel bearing seems to be making a humming noise.Gets louder when I accelerate and slows down when I am off the gas. The sound seems to always be there however.Mechanic said he is not so sure it is the wheel bearing because when he turns the steering a certain way it does not make any other type of wearing down noises such as a clichiing or grinding sound.

You need a new wheel-hub (bearing), my car did the exact same thing, even with a replacement. Finally the 2nd replacement solved the problem. Oh, peace and quiet. I replaced a perfectly good set of Potenzas thinking it was a loud tread design, but it wasn't.

I actually had this same problem with mine and my right front wheel came off. I had had my tires rotated and they had'nt tightened the lug nuts properly. They need to be tightened twice. Once after the intial instalation and again after 50 miles, especially if you have the crome alloy wheels.

My Dodge Grand Caravan is making a humming noise as you accelerate, while turning left it stops but gets worse while turning right. I replaced the left front wheel hub and no improvement, I need help


if hub bearing replacement did not fix the noise

when noises are on left and right turns
that has CV joints /drive shafts
would say they are the issue
replace both sides

and replace the left hand hub bearing at the same time

Humming noise wheel


Sounds like you replaced the front bearing. Could be a rear wheel bearing, or one of the tires.

Loud humming noise front end moving


While driving, slightly turn the wheel left and right, to see if the noise gets louder and quieter. If it does, you have a wheel bearing that is failing. Then you need to isolate which side is making noise and have it replaced. SOON

If it gets worse as you're turning right, but not left - Most definitely a wheel bearing on the right side. The right turn puts more stress on the right wheel - louder noise - turn left and release the stress - no noise. You can also lift the vehicle up on a jack and listen to the wheel and hear the bearing in the hub making noise.

Front wheel bearings bad


if it gets louder when you turn left then the right front wheel bearing is bad and vice versa it gets louder when the weight shifts to that wheel

Thats bad, if it really is the trans. When wheels are up in the air, put the car in gear, and grab the coil spring. If a wheel bearing is bad, you will feel the vibrations through the spring. If you compare right and left, you will be able to tell which wheel bearing is bad.

There is a humming sound coming from the front end of my 1999 oldmobile alero. Only happens when the car is moving. I dont hear itat idle or even when pushing the gas at idle. could it be my transmission...


Hello! If the humming noise is speed related(gets louder as vehicle speed increases)check front wheel bearings. If the noise goes away when turning one way or the other then it will most likely be in the front wheel bearing. If you turn the wheel(while moving)to the right and the noise goes away it is on the right side. If you turn the wheel to the left and the noise goes away its on the left side. Hope this information helps!

Loud humming noise from front end of Durango 4 x 4


You have a hub/wheel bearing going out. You need to jack up the vehicle on each side. Grab the top and bottom of the wheel and try to move it in/out at the top and bottom. If this does not work then roll the wheel as fast as you can and see if you can hear which one it is. Good Luck.

Alero loud humming/roaring sound coming from front end.


That's indicative of a wheel bearing, which is why you were told to change that out. However, it's also possible that the carrier bearings in the differential (where the drive axles attach) have gone bad. That happened to me on my 300ZX several years ago, and I had to replace the diff bearings. I would have them checked out somewhere other than a dealer (you'll probably get a better price from an independent shop).

As a sidenote, to be sure it wasn't a wheel bearing, if you hear it quiet down in a turn one way but get louder in a turn the opposite way, it's likely the wheel bearing. If you turn left at speed and it gets louder, then it's the right bearing (since you're loading up that side of the car). If it gets quieter in a right turn, it's the right side (you're unloading that side of the car and not putting as much weight on it, so it doesn't drag as badly). See if you get that symptom just to be sure that the wrong side front wheel bearing wasn't changed.
