It sounds like a wheel bearing. if its grinding jack up the front end and see if the wheel is loose and also leave the car in nutral and hold the coil spring on the strut and spin the wheel if that bearing is bad you will feel the roughness in the spring. on a hyundai i would recomend checking all four wheels because this is a common problem.

It could be rust on the brake rotor or the hub may have dry bearings.

Hyundai Accent 2016, 4811 km. makes grinding noice which can be heard when driving on smooth asphalt road. Noice is on for a while and then you don't hear it for a while. What can be the problem?


Wheel bearings could be the problem. While moving and steering to the left, if the noise increases, it could be the RIGHT wheel bearing. And the opposite when steering to the right. I wouldn't rule out brake noise though. Rotors almost overnight get a surface rust and must be worn off when first driving in the morning. Very common in high humid areas.

Roaring sound front left wheel, maybe a wheel bearing?


It could be the the wheel bearing...again, as you said. I also would like to know if you had the front end aligned when you changed the wheel bearing. If the tires have excessive wear on the outside or inside tread, you are out of alignment and BOTH wheel bearings need to be changed! It could also be the brakes wearing thin...check it out!

My 2006 ford 150 super crew front brakes seem to be flaking off? When I look at my front tire wheel covers I find residue on the wheel covers, I do not ride my brakes in traffic, what is the problem, just...


It's not uncommon to find brake dust on the wheel covers. If it is excessive, one possibility is that the pistons are sticking in the caliper bores. Jack up a wheel and give it a spin with your hand. If it spins easily, then all is well. Check your wheel bearing play while you have it jacked up. There shouldn't be any significant looseness. 70,000 km and only halfway through the pads sounds good. Cheers!

Noise coming from front of car


It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps

Hyundai 1998 Elantra Growling sound from front


You have a worn right front wheel bearing - all your symptoms are classic signs of wheel bearing failure. You'll likely need a 6-8 ton shop press to replace it. Dropping your car off for the work and picking it up completed can run you $250-300, but many places will charge only $30 or so if you remove the spindle (which houses the bearing) and bring it to them, so they only have to press out the bearing and install the new one.

Wheel Bearings


Yep - our cars are known for eating wheel bearings (I have a 99 2.8 quattro). I just did my rear left, which was howling, and now that it is quiet, I can hear the rear right going bad. The B5 chassis cars (96-01) are known for wheel bearing, control arm, and cruise control failures almost as much as they're known for fantastic driving and excellent traction in bad weather.
