    Help needed... There is a dull burring noise that seems to be getting worse over the past few weeks from the front end of my Audi. It's fine at 0-10mph then it kicks in and goes on till about 60mph then stops. I'm guessing it may be the wheel bearings but I'm unsure... If it is the wheel bearings how difficult is it to change them...

    Many thanks in advance

    Normaly a wheel bearing will start to make a noise at 40mph,then the worse it gets it will make a noise within the speed you are stateing!,they ar'nt to hard but you would need the right tools!
