    Got a low vibrating hum going on which gets louder when turning to the right. I'm sure it has to be a wheel bearing or a cv, not sure which though.

    When I turn around to the right slowly in a say a car park I can't hear any ticking or clonking which makes me think it could be a wheel bearing.

    Any body experienced this symptom and what was the fix?

    Cars a a4 2.5tdi quattro

    Thanks in advance

    I'd say wheel bearing.
    Changed the passenger side last year as I had a droning noise every time I turned right.
    It was especially noisy when turning on a fast bend and all the weight was shifted to the other side.

    Would also say wheel bearing, had a similar problem with an A6, drivers side bearing was fecked and the other was not looking great so replaced both.

    Fixed the rumble as was correctly diagnosised wheel bearing it was, thanks for the replies lads.

    Those bearing bolt retainers were stubborn to say the least, thankfully I have oxy/acetylene handy as the bolts needed some persuading.
