Whining noise

Recommended Posts

Tally2425

Driving a VW Polo 2011 1.2

 

Got a wining noise coming from front end of car, hard to determine exactly where it is coming from but the noise is normally heard above 30mph can still be heard in gear or not in gear dipping the clutch and releasing it doesn’t affect the sound, my thoughts are wheel bearings would this ring correct? Please correct me if i am wrong, thanks!

A wheel bearing. Unlikely to be both.

 

Jack up the car at each corner (on flat solid surface, make sure it is stable, not going to fall on you) and spin the wheel by hand.

For front wheels handbrake on not in gear.

For rear wheels handbrake off in gear, preferably chocked.

 

The worn or damaged bearing will rumble or grind.

Thanks for the quick reply, that was my first guess.

 

It started this weekend so i'll get it sorted in the coming weeks!
