Just a quick question, this is on the 90 Audi 200 FWD
I had the axle swapped about 25K ago, now it sounds
like fr. rt. wheel bearing is going, but 180k on the
car, so not unheard of.
I have replace rear wheel bearing recently as one
failed and I did the other, cheap.

So, I have been hearing a grown that sounds like new
tire with low air pressure sound, but not the case.

Last night I notice when a get off highway on an
off-ramp at speed the sound goes away when I vier the
car to the right for the ramp.

I ruled out automatic trans as I put car in nutral at
speed and not change to grown.

When car rolls slow down my street and all is quite I
do not hear anything ugly.
Does this sound like wheel bearing.  I fear yes.

Thanks, Bryan
