THIS NOISE IS USUALLY THE HUB. HAVE SOMEONE GO WITH YOU ON A TEST DRIVE. GET THE ROARING TO HAPPEN AT ITS LOUDEST AND GENTLY SWERVE THE CAR LEFT AND RIGHT. DON'T BE SURPRISED IF YOU THINK BOTH HUBS ARE BAD. LIFT THE FRONT OF THE CAR AND PUT IT ON JACK STANDS. PULL OUTWARD ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TIRE WHILE PUSHING INWARD ON THE TOP OF THE WHEEL. IF THE WHEEL MOVES EXCESSIVELY YOU FOUND THE HUB THAT IS NOISY. USING A MECHANICS STETHOSCOPE YOU CAN SOMETIMES HEAR A ROARING TYPE NOISE ON THE BACKING PLATE SIDE OF THE HUB WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING AND THE TRANS IN GEAR. TRY NOT TO GET THE SPEED UP TOO FAR ESPECIALLY IF YOU CAN HEAR THE NOISE AT LOW SPEED, YOU DON'T WANT TO VIBRATE OFF THE STANDS.

00Linc ls noise from front end sounds like tire road noise steering wheel shakes a little


Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

How does a bad wheel bearing sound on a lincoln Mkz awd?


due to the awd you cant just jack up each wheel and spin it . when i road test for w/brg noise you listen for a slight whirring hum that increases and decreases with speed or sometime as you swerve back and forth you hear it as the vehical weight shifts side to side (right swerve left w'brg left swerve right w'brg) as a rule but not always . have a passenger sit in the back to help verify front or rear> dont guess and just replace one .
w'brg's come in three flavors cheap mid grade and premium.
the labour to change is the same. my advice dont end up paying for the labour twice buy the better or best , cheap parts cost more in the long run!

Roar on the right side


Its probably the left side, not only because you replaced the right side, but because it changes on right turns.
When you go into a right turn, the bearings on the left side are under more pressure and torque.
The front hub bearing goes bad more often than the axle bearing, so I would expect it to be the left front.

What kind of noise will you hear with bad right wheel bearing? It sounds like a whirl behind radio and gets louder with increased speed over 35mph.


the noise should change or go away when you turn the wheel to the right or left. if it does it sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. Typically if you turn to the left and it gets louder its the right side if you turn to the right and it gets louder its the left side. Or if you turn to the right and it goes away its the right side and if it goes away when turning to the left it is the left side.

Another thing you can do is safely jack up the front of the vehicle. With the transmission in neutral rotate each wheel by hand while holding onto the strut spring with your other hand. You should be able to feel the noise you hear in the strut spring if it is the bearing.

My 2001 buick lesabre starts to make a dronning sound from the front end around 30mph and gets louder the faster you go!


Wheel bearings or hubs.If you listen and turn one way or the other the sound goes away.It's usually the one your turning towards,and the sound goes away.Here's the process.
