Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.

Can you tell approximately where the humming sound is coming from? For example, does it seem to come from inside the vehicle or under the hood.

Let me know.

Okay, I should have seen that when I first replied. Sorry. Anyway, it could be the result of a brake issue or a wheel bearing. Does the sound change when you apply the brakes? What happens when you turn left? Also, does the humming change with vehicle speed?

Honestly, it sounds like a wheel bearing, but I will wait for your reply.

Hi again:
Is there any way you could record the sound and upload it so I can hear it? If it makes a humming should when turning right, that leads me to believe there is a problem with the left front wheel bearing.

Let me know.
