Customer Question

hi, i own a 2005 Suzuki verona. the car has a loud humming noise that starts when i get above 25 mph. it gets louder when i turn steering wheel to the left. thought tires where going bad so i just put new tires on and it still makes noise. checked front wheel bearings by wiggling tire from top to bottom but there is no play in it. i understand that the transmission is a sealed unit and cannot check the fluid level. any help would be greatly appreciated

About your vehicle.

.

.

That can very well be a bad wheel bearing. They go bad a lot of times without having any runout, (play) or wiggle in sthem. One way to see is to jack up the vehicle and listen to the back of the hubs with a stethoscope, (or a long pipe) while the wheels are turning, (with engine running).

.

.

Another is to see if the sound changes when you turn into and away from it. A bad bearing on the right side, (front) will be louder when turned to the left, (while moving) and subside when turned to the right. Visa versa for the left side.

.

.

If so then the hub assembly, (with bearings in it) would have to be replaced.
