Q: Humming sound from wheel

asked by on February 26, 2016

I can hear a humming coming from the right front wheel.

Hello. The humming noise you are hearing might be coming from the wheel bearing. If the noise is more prevalent on a left turn than a right turn then this will indicate a problem with the right wheel bearing. Wheel bearings are known to fail on vehicle’s with this type of front suspension set up. I would recommend replacing the wheel bearings on both sides since the left side is probably not too far behind in terms or wear.
