Whine from the front.

4 posts in this topic

Just back from a 5000 mile run around Europe in the Escort. On the last couple of days I started to hear a continuous whine/hum when rolling. When the steering turns to the right the hum disappears then comes back on normal running or left turning. I suspected the wheel bearings but I jacked it up and both (front) wheels rotate smoothly and no play. The driveshaft gaiters do not seem to be leaking.

Any ideas?

i'd say wheel bearings

It was the wheel bearings BUT it was the rear RHS bearings that had gone. About £14 0n ebay.
