View Full Version : humming sound around 35-40 mph | help !!

06-11-2008, 02:07 PM
My tires were wore out so i got me brand new tires, (and this sound was allready there before i had my tires changed)

When i get up to about 35 mph i get a loud humming/vibrating sound seems to come from the right side (maybe even the back) side of the car...

it freaks me out.. cuz i thaught it was the tires.. but now it s still there..

man im all paranoid now cuz i think something bad is wrong.. any ideas?

anyone ever had this?? i was thinking of replacing my springs/struts next week anyways.. but not sure if that would fix it.. any ideas ??

Might be a bad wheel bearing. I lost a rear one on my 2000 a4 at 50k.

Bad wheel bearing. It's common.

x6. Just changed my front pasenger maybe 3 weeks ago. You should replace it soon or else you will have to replace hub also.

The front bearings are different from the rear. But the one in the link by LowSantorin are the correct ones. The front ones have like orange inserts and rears have blue.
