Lift the tires off the ground and spin them and check for any play in the bearings. Look at your tires. If they have flat spots on the outter edges of the tire then that is probably the noise you are hearing.

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds

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.

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

SOURCE: I Think I have a front wheel bearing problem

Check wheel bering for play if there is no play , it doesn't mean that bearing is NOT bad its can still be dry and would be making that grinding sound you described Also check axle and see if boot is broken. That may be your problem also make sure that rotors are not gouged/scraped up and pads are good.Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: Hear a grinding noise from the right front wheel

You should definitely pull the front wheel and check the bearings (they are roller bearings, not ball bearings). With the wheel off, you should be able to isolate where the noise is coming from, but I vote for the bearings. Check, replace and/or repack, and adjust properly. If you have noise, you should be able to feel the "play" in the bearings, or see the wear problem on the spindle and bearings. I hope this helps you.

I hear a thumping noise from the left front wheel that disappears when braking.


You might get that wheel off of the ground and try to rock or wiggle the wheel. Sometimes a failing bearing will be quieted when the wheel is stressed by braking.
I would also crank the steering hard left and right while moving at better-than-walking speed in an empty parking lot to see if the noise is constant regardless of direction; if not, that too would point to a bearing with a pit.

I hear a roaring sound when driving.


Most likely a bad wheel bearing in the front. If the noise is more pronounced when turning in a certain direction it is generally the opposite wheel bearing at fault (eg. turn left noise worsens, means right side wheel bearing). The reason is the weight distribution, when you turn left the front end engine and tranny weigh heavier on the right side, and amplify the noise.

The car is making a roaring noise going down the road, if I turn the steering wheel to the left it stops, if I turn to the right it gets louder. Any ideas?


Good Morning. What this sounds like is the exact diagnosing of a front hub assembly really not that pricey either, and a common problem. Last one I did a few days ago even with the noise calming down going the other way ended up being both hubs. I hope this helps and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Thanks,
Joey

You could have a failed wheel bearing. Jack the rear up with the trans in neutral (chock the front wheels please) and try to spin the tire. it should spin fairly easy. If you feel grinding or the wheel is difficult to spin then I would say it is the wheel bearing.

Ball bearing and seal for a 2003 Focus


possibly a wheel beering...to diagnose a wheel beariing, listen closley when making left and right turns...when turning left, weight shifts to front right side, If noise increases, it may be a front right wheel bearing.... vice versa for right turns.

I hit a bump on the right front side and it makes a roaring type noise and shimmies a bit .. can feel it under my left foot. also at times it will make that soud when i make a right hand turn... it is ...


Sounds like your left front wheel bearing is going bad. When you make a right turn, or compress the right front suspension over a bump, it forces the car to roll to the left. This loads the suspension on the left side, which will exaggerate a wheel bearing problem. Are you hearing the noise at all when travelling on the highway in a straight line? If so, it'd be either a grinding sound or a hollow humming noise. If you aren't, it may be that the bearing is just starting to go bad.

A quick test to see if the bearing is bad is to jack the car up at that corner, grab the wheel at the top and bottom, and shake it hard - if there is any movement or looseness, your bearing is shot. If there is none, it doesn't mean the bearing is fine, but it could be that it's just starting to go bad (which would be why you only hear it in turns and bumps, but not straight-line yet).

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
