    Anyone know what this is??

    Hey,

    Something is making a 'droneing' slight rumbling noise toward the rear of the car when i hit about 25mph plus. It increases in volume as i increase speed, am leaning towards bearing as the sound completey goes away when i go through a right hand bend.

    Which wheel should i be looking at if it disappears on right hand turns?? rear behind driver or rear behind passenger.

    Going into audi tomorrow for a diagnosis check, if i can point them in the right direction it will speed things up.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Sounds like a bearing, take it to any vag mechanic tho wouldnt bother with audi unless you like spending money - its impossible to guess which one has gone if it is a bearing really.

    Sound like a wheel bearing to me. I changed one on my other car and a week later the other one went. Jack it up and spin the wheel no need to take it to Audi.
