Loud humming only when driving 40km/hr+

Asked by Apr 22, 2017 at 06:23 PM about the 2006 Ford Focus ZXW SE Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ford focus 2006 has really loud humming noise while driving, sound goes away
when turning right. Thought it was the wheel bearing as it sounded like the
noise was coming from front driver's side but the sound has not improved at all.
Would it just be the other side or is it something else? Almost sounds like it's
coming from the engine.

1 Answer


I would at least check the passenger side wheel bearing, also look at the CV Boots to see if any are torn indicating a bad CV joint.
