Noise/vibration When Driving

Recommended Posts

01 Avensis 1800 VVTI auto ...When driving at any speed there is a noise/vibration coming from the f/n/s wheel it seems.The only time this stops is when going along a `sweeping` right hand bend,then silence returns,briefIy..I`ve checked the obvious like w/nuts & balancing.There is no `play`in the wheels when checking w/bearings..I have been told it could be the rear engine mounting or a driveshaft.All are expensive in Cork.Apart from that the car is fine,with low mileage for age..Thoughts please.Thanks

Could be a wheel bearing on the way out, but not quite bad enough to show movement yet.

Before doing the wheel bearing increase the tyre pressure and see if the noise changes.

For me the wheel bearing is the best bet, but i have been fooled by a tyre going off and sounding like a wheel bearing.

I recently changed my wheel bearing and it is not too difficult. I have my own press.

I would check the tyre first. Maybe swap it from near side to off side and see what difference it makes. Nice cheap way of ruling out a fault in the tyre or wheel before shelling out on repairs.

The stub axle is very expensive if but as a whole unit. There are cheaper bearing kits, but the problem is removing the ABS wheel!

I would get a second hand unit and it is quick to change.
