Front left wheel humming

Started under load could tell it was left side as turning to the right made the sound worse whilst turning to the left took the sound away. I changed front left bearing from reading other threads i was sure that was the problem, made no diference. I rotated tyres from front to back, no diference if not worse can hear it at 40kms and goes at about 90kms. Its a whooo whoo whooo sound. Any advice would be greatly appreciated i hate wasting cash and dont mind doing things myself cheers shlammer

I would have come to the same diagnosis too.
Check the other bearings by jackng up and seeing if there is any roughness when turning them by hand.
I would also check front diff oil levels and the front prop rear joint.

Hi gain just thought i would do an update. Jacked car up again couldnt really get any play from front wheels if i wabbled it hard enough both wheels turned a bit at the same time no matter where i jacked it from. I did notice however main drive shaft had about 1mm of play left to right but the small drive shaft had about 3-4 mm of play left to right. Probably a stupid question but does both shafts rotate under rear wheel drive and could this be the problem. Taking it to a mechanic next thursday to get it looked over so ill touch base once i find the answer cheers.

Both front and rear shafts rotate under 2wd. 3 to 4 mm sounds a lot, this could easily be the problem.

My mechanic came for a drive with me today, hes positive the sound is wheel bearing, only problem is it still sounds like its coming from the left even though i changed the left hub. So off to sprints tomorrow to pick up my right replacement hub and see if that helps. Fingers crosssed will update by the end of the weekend.

I had the same although it was knocking, was sure it was coming from left but no play in either front wheels so changed the left cv joint as some grease had escaped.
Anyway noise was still there, checked a few weeks later and right wheel had a dangerous amount of play!
Was right bearing all along(think it had collapsed by then)

Here's hoping. If it is the other bearing, it isn't bad news as the bearings go within a few thousand miles of each other (in my experience)

Thanks for the replys. Somehow it turned out to be the right hub even though the sound was from the left. I hope this post can help some people in the future for there navara or any other car wheel related issues cheers again guys. Its the best feeling in the world fixing an issue for urself instead of paying someone else

Perhaps the lesson is to replace both rather than just one?
