Noisy wheel bearing?

Hi All,
My '09 Discovery has developed a noise that sounds like a dynamo or whining noise. The noise ramps up and down dependant on speed. I've think I've ruled out any gearbox issues by dropping the clutch whilst in motion but hearing no change in the noise. I've been to the local garage and had the discs and pads done as they were due, but this has not affected the noise at all.
Any thoughts?

Shocked

Spooky - sounds not dissimilar to a noise that I became aware of at the weekend. Only faint but turn the radio off and it's definitely there. Most prominent at around 30 - 40 mph, mine is an Auto box.

What tyres are you running?

There have been a few posts about excessive tyre noise recently. Here's a couple that might be relevant:

Wheel bearings on the D3/4 do make some weird and wonderful noises though. Quite unlike any other car/vehicle that I've owned.

Jack it up (securely) and see if there's any side to side movement on each wheel.

Thanks for the replies. I'll need to check tyre type when I get home. She drives and feels perfect. It seems to be from the back. Anything else to consider?

I also get a bit of a howl from the rear above certain speeds. I recently replaced my front wheel bearings (they were VERY noisy). I am suspecting that the slight howl from the rear is the beginning of the end of the rear wheel bearings Sad

Hopefully it's just that not the rear diff Thumbs Up

PS. I'm running General AT tyres so it could be those too.....though I'd expect to hear the howl from all round if it was tyres... not just from the rear.

Had same sort of noise, I thought rear wheel bearing or diff, was on the way out. Turned out to be rear wheel alignment out causing uneven tyre wear which created the noise. New tyres and alignment cured the noise.

Well, I'm on new tyres and just been aligned a week ago Thumbs Up

Might just be tyre noise though (AT pattern).... will wait and see if it gets worse

Hi all,
Just got back from the main dealer, diagnosis is a front left wheel bearing. They want £330 to put that right. Also mentioned the back left compressor was noisy for 10 seconds on start up, not a problem or unsafe but I should consider replacing it for £750.

I've decided that mine is engine revs related. Most noticeable at around 1500 - 2000 low speeds.

Can't hear it with radio on Whistle

I called the dealership yesterday, they said bring it down and take a service guy out for a run so he can have a listen. No charge, he even stretched to lifting it up and having a look underneath. Might be worth a call before it develops into a more expensive problem.

As ebygum says get a timken and if not happy with doing it yourself get Geoff to fit it a good guy to deal with.

I was advised of possible wheel bearing noise (or front diff bearing).. its like a steel on steel scraping noise in a right hand turn.. Got the car up and can't find any wheel movement out of rotation plane (left front) so about to check right front..

Questions:
Is that check sufficient to clear wheel bearings..?
What does a failing front diff bearing sound like..? Thanks to all..

When my front right went its was a slight squeal so I knew it was on its way , in Cornwall at the time .
By the time the holiday was over and home it was proper grumbling
when I did the replacement I bought Timken for about £90 and did it in about an hour and half .
but I had no play in the wheel when jacked up but the old bearing was red with rust dust .
easy job , I would have done whilst away if I knew how easy Thumbs Up

the comp noise is normal it can run longer than 10 seconds if parked on un-level ground I wouldn't replace it, they are not silent my old D2 comps where quitter than my newish AMK comp on the D3
don't worry , but the wheel bearing quote is a bit stiff , 2 hours labour max and that's being generous Thumbs Up
