Hello,

I've got a 2006 Corolla Compressor, its just ticked 42k miles.

As of late I've noticed a knocking and humming / droning sort of noise from the rear of the car.

I'm thinking wheel bearing, but live on a hill, so can't get the car in the air to wriggle the wheel about.

Any one got any ideas what it could be?

If it is the wheel bearing, is this a big or expensive job to change?

Cheers all.

Gary

Could be a brake binding ? other than that it does sound like a wheel bearing, apart from the knocking. Maybe worth going to an empty car park and doing some slow circles with the windows down to see which side is coming from.

Cheers for the reply.

I'll do that the weekend.

I reckon its offside rear.

I had the pads changed a month or so ago, so brake binding could well be it.

hi could be a wheel bearing check by giving them a spin listening for noise .but at the same time observe your tyre run out .i had this on my compressor and it was tyres causing noise if you spin the wheel watch the tyre for uneven runout the tread kicks up and down and causes a droning noise which sounds like a wheel bearing.
