Jag X type SE auto, reg. 07 09 2002, 2099cc, petrol.

There is a (what I can describe) as a low 'grumble' sound, as all speeds coming from the front. It seems to get loader when turning right. Does not seem to be from the engine. Can you help..............

Hello and Welcome..

My name is MIKE - Im happy to help you...

From what you describe, this sounds very much as though you have a wheel / hub bearing that is failing - they go dry / wear over time - and you get the rumble you describe.

The noise is accentuated too on cornering - and on the opposite corner ( ing ) will decrease as load / vehicle weight is applied on the corner ( or taken off, on the opposite corner )

So you need really to have the car jacked up - or on a garage ramp with the wheels off the ground... Spinning the wheels as fast as you can should produce no sounds.... a worn wheel bearing will be highlighted by a hum or noise from within the hub / centre of the hub / wheel where the bearing is.. renewal is the answer to that as they cannot be repaired or re greased on these models.

Now- I note you say this appeared to start after tyre renewal.. There is a small possibility that this noise could be coming from the tyres - but its very rare... Even so - I would suggest have a word with the tyre suppliers and have them physically check the tyres ( and bearings ) for you to get to the bottom of this....

Let me know if you need anything more on this at all -


Please do click on the "OK rating to Excellent ratings" service for me now, Thank you for that... and you can get back to me anytime if you need / wish..

Best Rgds, MIKE.
