Re: Wheel Bearing Noise?
I had both front wheel bearings go out on my 1990 200tq 10v this year. the
first one was the passenger's side. it made a thumping noise like it was a
tire problem. the driver's side which i need to replace now makes a low
growling sound that is not in sinc with the wheel rotation. However, i
noticed a slight tire wear problem (cupping) and when I jacked it up I heard
a clicking coming from the bearing area in the wheel.

Subject: Wheel Bearing Noise?
Could anybody relate what sounds a bad wheel bearing makes? I've got a
humming sound thats just started and is coming from the front of my 4kq
that I can't quite make out. Doesn't seem to to be engine or transmission
