In my case it was a sticky calliper and replaced it.
My wife was noticing it and at first I was not hearing it cause I didnot test drive far enough
Just feel the wheels after some driving, if calliper sticks it is red hot and you can actually smell the heat.
I found that when I removed calliper that I could still apply braking power to other wheels, that's how sticky it was(did not want to come out easy and therefor especially not back off) decided to replace calliper (expensive but life time warranty) to keep life simple. I like the design, very easy to work on.
Allways carefull with the rubber hose (they can cause stickyness as well due to some obstruction inside if handled roughly

Humming loud noise


Sometimes depending on what type of tire you have, they can be making the humming sound, other than that you'd have to give more detail as to where you think it's coming from, like the back or the front, the engine or the wheels, transmission?

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.
