Front Wheel Bearing Noise

Anyone had issues with noise from either LT or RT front wheel bearings? My 2011 Elantra has some sort of noise coming from the LT frt wheel

The check Wheel bearing, you're going to want to raise the car off the ground. Then you were going to grab the tire at the 3 and 9 o'clock position, and move it back and forth. If there is a play noted in the tire that'll be a sign of a bad wheel bearing.

Also, when the cars off the ground have the car in neutral and spin the tire with your hand. you should be able to hear a different noise coming from the side with the bad bearing.

Good advice above. All makes and models have wheel bearings that go out. As long as there is no damage it should be covered under warranty.

Actually you should grab at 12 and 6 o clock. 3 and 9 would be indication of a bad tie rod end.

We have not had any concerns for front wheel bearing replacement.

Wheel bearing will produce a steady roar sound, increase with speed.. tires do same thing, but different tone,, so you need to be able to distinguish the difference.. rotate of tires will move sound with tire, bearing will stay in place.

Bearing noise usually change or quit when load angle changed (moderate "S" turns across lanes where you can do it safely for testing)... tires stay pretty constant


Have seen 1 a few month back, it was loose, they hit something, wheel was bent too.. that not a warranty concern.

Axle bearing at front is a simple 2 row ball bearing, nice impact will cause the balls to peen the races, and now we have the balls roling across a wash board effect (gross comparison),, hence the roar noise.

DAB squib on steering has called for grabbing wheel at 9 & 3 I think.. that when DAB pop, less likely to hurt your arms..

The problem is that our steering wheel with its large spoke is not well designed for grabbing at 9 and 3. The thumb rests are close to 10 and 2 and there is also a way to grab it at 4 and 8 without too much pain.
