Sounds like a wheel bearing or bearings going bad.

Humming or 'howling' noises are indicative of a bad wheel bearing especially on acceleration.

Good luck on this repair.

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.

Possible have a caliber not retracting all the way and the brake shoe is slightly scrubbing the rotor. Don't overlook the possibility of wheel bearings or CV joints.

Black the rear wheels, put the car in neutral with the parking brake on, jack up the front end and spin the tires. Once you locate the source of the noise, you can pull the tire off and check the brake pads and rotors.

I just bought an2003 ford explorer 4x4 and i have a loud humming noise coming from the front end tires are brand new it has around 190,000km please help


If the noise is only when the vehicle is moving it sounds lek you have a bad wheel bearing. You can inspect ford move ment or play shaking the tires up and down and left to right while lifted up on hoist or jack. If there is no movement doesn't necesarily mean the bearings are okay, however if there is movement in bearing replace and drive again. Antoher way to determine Which wheel bearing is bad is to drive and turn to the left, if the noise gets louder than it mens the rightside wheel bearung is bad. If you turn to the right and noise gets louder replace driver side front wheel bearing. Also Rub your hands across your tires, does it feel wavy or uneven, you could have cupped tires, I DON'T KNOW HOW NEW THEY are but cupped tires will also make this noise. One way to see if it is the tires is to do a rotate If noise changes at all then you no its a tire causing noise. Hope this helps.

My 2000 outback just started making a disturbing clicking sound when I make right turns. I had it in the shop a few days ago and they rotated and balanced the tires. What's causing the click and could it...


doubtful it would be related to the balancing. that noise is likely a constant velocity joint failing. usually just called a cv joint. they are basically mini drive shafts on front wheel drive cars. you have a cv joint at each end of the shaft to allow the wheel to turn and go over bumps and still maintain power from the transmission.

sounds to me like its a cv joint. if the rubber boot gets damaged in any way, dirt gets in there and really does some damage. check the boot really good. if you dont see any holes or anything it might just be the wheel bearing. id take it to a mechanic and ask him to just look at it. usually they wont charge ya.
