It could be something as little as mud stuck in your wheel well. Maybe get your wheel alignment done.

On A 2003 Pontiac Montana AWD, What could cause vibration in the front end while accelerating a right hand turn?


Left wheel bearing or either CV axle,(left or right) Axles usually make the vibration turn left or right. Bearings will get loader turning. When you turn right, the pressure is on the left side.

I have a 2011 Nissan Sentra. It has developed a loud hum and vibration to the steering wheel from the front end .it has 180,000km. Any ideas?


How are the tires? New? Old? Rotate them and see if noise goes away. Possibly front wheel bearing in the front drive axle where it goes thru the hub and rotor.......goes the noise get worse if you turn right or left slightly when driving it? If it gets worse on one side that is the side with the bad bearing.....replace as needed.

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.

How to fix front wheel bearings on 2001 Pontiac Grand Am


Your wheel bearings are contained in a sealed hub assembly. In order to change them you change the entire hub. That requires removal of the axle end nut, brake caliper and rotor, then removing the three bolts on the inboard side of the steering knuckle that retain the hub. Generally it's easier to get the hub out if you only run the retaining bolts out part way and they put a socket that you will never use again on them and use a hammer on the back of that socket to push the hub out of the knuckle, alternating sides.
Once removed, lightly sand the rust from the hub bore and put a light coating of grease inside to aid in replacing the new hub assembly. Remainder of the job is just reversing what you did to take it out. Axle nut should be torqued to around 125lbs (check that #...I'm doing this from memory).
In any case, once that nut has been tightened, if it uses a cotter pin, never back it off to match the through hole, always go tighter.

What tools do i need to replace front wheel bearing hub assembly


Floor jack- jack car up and put a jack stand under it. A tire lug to remove tire. A 36 mm socket to unbolt axle shaft sticking through bearing hub. Next a Brass hammer with a block of wood. Next center wood on axle shaft sticking through bearing hub and hit with a 4lb brass or steel hammer with a wood block on shaft. Next you need a 10mm or 12mm socket on back side of bearing hub should have 3 bolts holding it unbolt. Last use a pry bar and gradually pry bearing out and no there not pressed in like a lot of people think.
(Socket sizes maybe different)
If you take it somewhere it would cost about $800 and up.

Front end vibration


this is most often caused by worn out drive axle constant velocity joints or CV joints as we tech's call them, have them checked for torn boots or excessive wear, I am sure one or both will be found.
