Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, I had this "whistling/whining" noise coming from my front right tire area. It didn't make the noise at 50km/hr or slower... and on "colder" days... it would take a little longer before starting up.
The solution (after reading a FixYa) was to replace the whole Right Front Hub Assembly. I bought this for $280 incl. tax (it was on sale). And I did the work myself. I had already replaced both the front Rotors and Brake Pads, so I knew those were okay (and didn't fix the whine)... so now I just went to town on the Hub assembly. It comes apart pretty "easy" (I'm not a mechanic and don't have too many tools... but I bought what I needed) and the new Hub Assembly slides on. It's been about 2 weeks now with a road trip included and the noise is gone.

LOL , We had this issue arise before and it turned out to be that when the audio guys at American TV installed the car stereo speakers in our door , they tore the plastic sealing membrane on the inside of the door under the door panel.
To locate the leak you will need a passenger with good hearing .
drive into the wind until the noise starts and have the passenger guess which door the whistling is coming from... remove the door trim panel and be sure the membrane is intact and sealed... pay close attention to the mirror area... as they are prone to leak and cause a whistle...
Hope this helped!
