Slight Whine

Hi All,

I noticed today a slight whine while driving. The sound is directly proportional to road speed not engine speed.
I can't figure out where its coming from.
My gut feeling is it is either wheel bearings or gearbox output. The car has done 45000 miles.

Anyone else had this?

Thanks

Re: Slight Whine

If it change when you turn left / right it can be a wheel (apply / remove pressure to bearing). Test on a long straight line at 60-70 kmh, and "zig zag" (long turn to have the longest possible pressure on a side, not a slalom) and hear if noise change.

It can be you tires too, check if noise change when at same speed you change of road surface (new / old road)

Re: Slight Whine

Just a quick update. It was the rear wheel bearing. Both of them really really bad. Replaced under warranty. I think the fronts are starting to go so will try to get those done before the warranty ends in September.
