Hi,

Its a good possibilty,The Bearing will humm ,if no grease in them or very little. I would Stop driving it to save some money cause if its a wheel bearing, it will only get worse and its 1st of all not SAFE,2nd The bearing will also damage your Hub and Spindle,and any other front end parts that heat from the bearing will Damage,Like your Front Brake Rotor and Brake Pads. So .Pull off that wheel and Check it out,You'll have to Pull Caliper and Rotors as Well.

Many times if one side goes out (Wheel Bearing) normally not long before both==I recommend you Change out Wheel Bearings and Bearing Races On BOTH sides.

Hope i have Explained well enough to you.Please let me Know by Voting on The Quality of My Answer and Solutions.

Thanks For using FixYa From: d_hubbs

Its very possible. when it starts to make the noise, about 40mpg, turn to the left and right. Does the noise get louder or go away. if it gets louder when turning to the left than the right side is usually bad and vice versa. If there is no change than it could be the tires or front differential.

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

Reason for humming noise even after changing wheel bearings of car


Depending on how the noise is affected by your driving, it could be an axle joint or the differential in the transaxle.
If it is coming from the back instead of the front you may still need hub bearings.

Will the front driveshaft cause humming if it is free wheeling


The noise your hearing is most likely a hub bearing It will look like axle shaft is moving because the bearing is what the axle sits into if the noise changes when driving and turn wheel to left and right if so if you turn left and noise changes then your right frt bearing is bad and vise a versa.

I have a 2004 corolla that has a humming noise in the front when turning to the right.replaced the right front wheel bearing and noise still there.any ideas?


It's most likely the left wheel bearing that's causing the noise, when turning to the right the weight of the car shifts to the left placing more load on the left wheel bearing and takes load off the right bearing.

most of the time when there is a humming noise other then a brake noise you have a wheel bearing bad the best way to tell if it is a wheel bearing making noise is while you are driving down the road and the vehicle is making the noise slightly turn the steering wheel left to right if the noise changes at all replace the wheel bearings gm cars are notorious for wheel bearing
good luck chris

Vibration/Humming/Grinding noises when stopping or turning left.


when turning left vehicle distributes weight to right front wheel bearing causing load. since u describe a noise in right front while driving straight i would suspect failed right front wheel bearing. see if your noise changes/goes away while turning right that should tell u 4 sure

Loud humming noise from drivers side front end changed hub assembly still have noise ????????????????


humming noise usually comes from wheel bearings. did you change that with a new bearing? also choppy or worn tires can cause humming noise that sounds like bad wheel bearings. rotate your tires and see if the noise changes. if so its tires. also even if it sounds like its from the right it could very well be a bad bearing in another location.

Steering creeks when turning left or right. front wheel noise.


My advise is when u get a humming noise when banking left or right. Its beter to change both left and right wheel bearing and ball joints. Cause if u think about it those parts are put on at the same time . So if u think about it they have the same where in Terre . left or right hope this helps you.
