    Default Wheel bearing sound, but all have been changed!!!!!

    Hello to who ever can answer, and thanks!!

    Recently had a noise which I assumed was a wheel bearing, now all bearings and hubs have changed but the noise still seems to persist.

    It almost sounds like a jet engine at times but have no clue what it could be and neither do the local garage at the moment!!!!

    Please Help

    Cheers.

    I'd go down that route before anything else mate, or see if you can borrow someone elses wheels for 10 minutes to see if they're the cause...

    Nah, you'd feel that through the steering wheel if they were the fronts. it's the only other thing I've known to cause rumbling like a wheel bearing, as I've had both and couldn't have told you the difference. My current car had a rumbling that vanished when I fitted new tyres...

    I think the garage swapped front and back now the front vibrates the steering wheel!
