    Hi


    My car has developed a whirring noise when turning left and seems to get more noticeable at higher speeds or when the cars had a good blast out.


    Ive had all driveshafts checked for damaged boots or play and seem to be good.


    Could it it possibly be wheel bearing? Right front I'm guessing as the noise happens when turning left.


    Any help would be much appreciated.

    It sounds like a wheel bearing to me.

    Can't listen to the video as I'm at work but the way I found out my bearing was knackered was easy.

    Make sure all wheel bolts are tight, jack the car up and give each wheel a tug. There should be no movement. If the wheel wobbles, chances are it's that bearing that's gone.
