Wheel bearing

If grinding noise is heard coming from front side, lift up both the front wheels and rotate the wheels one by one to listen to the sound, if any. If a noise is heard, replace the front wheel bearings as a set.
If the front wheels do not produce any abnormal noise when rotated, lift down the front vehicle. Lock the front wheels with blocks, release the hand brake. lift up the rear wheels and try to listen to the abnormal noise. If the noise is heard, replace the differential bearings and seals. Top up the differential oil to the mark.

Im not sure what year ,make or model car this is but the noise you speak of sounds like a bad wheel bearing , you said its in the front so it would be a front wheel bearing the next step would be to find out what side, this noise will increase as your speed does. the wheel bearing will need to be checked. you can jack up one side at a time and check the wheel for play, most times the wheel bearing will slack up due to wear, with wheel up grab the top and bottom and see if it moves and this may help locate the bad one, if theres no play in front wheel then you wheel need to jack both wheels off the ground and run them as you listen for noise.good day.

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.

When traveling on flat surfaces, there is a noise coming from the front (axel, tire, steering column???) area. No noise going up an incline or down a hill, just on the level. Had this scooter only 12...

The most likely source of the noise is your front wheel bearings or the front springs for the suspension. Each front wheel has an inner and outer wheel bearing which is sealed but can develop noise over time. If you can, block up the scooter and spin the wheel in the air. If you hear noise it is either a noisy bearing or you need to remove the wheel and grease the spindle (axle) the wheel is mounted to. The wheel bearings need to be punched out and replaced with the same size bearings from the manufacturer or a bearing store.
While the scooter is off the ground check the steering linkages and spray lubricate them. Also, lubricate the springs and anything else that moves or pivots. If the steering tiller squeaks at the head tube frame (steering column) upper or lower bearings you have a more technical repair. That involves loosening the lock-nuts for the steering column dropping the lower front frame assembly to either repack with grease or replace the bearings. You would also have tor remove the upper tiller assembly and get it aligned on reassembly.
You should be able to hear and isolate the noise once you have the front end blocked up off the ground. Hope this helps.

There is a very loud humming noise coming from the front left tire! plz I await your reply. Thks.

You probably have a bad tire or wheel bearing. Either the tire is cupped causing humming noise or grease inside sealed wheel bearing is burnt up. I would take front tire and move to the back of the car. Then drive again. If noise stays the same you probably have a bad wheel bearing. If noise moves to the back of the car than you may need to replace the tire. Most likely it is the wheel bearing, I replace them all the time at my shop

Most likely it is the RH front wheel bearings. CV Joints don't usually make any noise until you turn a rather sharp corner. I would advise you to replace the bearings and seals in both front wheels if the bearings are in fact noisy. Jack up the front and spin each wheel, you'll soon hear the sound of rumbling bearings.

Noise in front end, sounds like wheel bearings, 110,000 miles, rear end axles and bearings replaced, sounds still present, louder when making left turn when weight of vehicle shifts to front end right side

You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.
