My mechanic thought it is the wheel bearing assy which he did replace but still the sound still could be heard but lesser in frequency

Hello my name is***** is this vehicle the newer body style or older style?

Expert:  Scott W. replied 9 months ago.

If this is the newer, there is a TSB from Ford to check the vacuum hose to the IWE's, the lockouts, we have also replaced many IWE's themselves and also the IWE solenoid mounted on the firewall. All of these compnents will cause the noise you are hearing.
