Noise - wheel bearing/transmission ?

My 2006 Nissian Murano has 122,000+ miles on it. At approximately 108,000 miles, I had Nissian flush the transmission.

This is my wife's car.

I recently noticed there is a lot of noise coming from the front, maybe the driver's front tire/wheel. It sounds like road noise that you get with snow tires on a rough road. It starts at about 40 mph and gets louder with increased speed.

Do these transmissions make more noise with age/mileage? It has been doing this for a couple of months, so I can't believe it is a bad wheel bearing, plus it is a low rumble.

Any ideas?

Bad wheel bearing? Or possibly a bad tire, belt separation?

Sounds like the wheels bearings are going bad. The sound will get louder the more you drive it until it completely goes and turns to a grinding sound or worst -wheel separating from car. Take it to shop ASAP and have it checked out.

Check you CVT fluid level. Changing CVT fluid does not cause any noise so long the correct fluid - NS2 - is used at the proper level.

I suspect its your wheel bearings. Good thing is its easy to replace. You just change the entire hub. Unlike other cars where you need to press the bearing out and in the hub. Be very careful when removing the ABS sensors -this cost more than the hub if it breaks. Good luck.

Thanks for all your comments. I took it to a Dealer and it was the wheel bearings (front driver's side), $648.

My 2003 had the same road noise at 40mph and 65mph. It also was the front driver's side hub assembly (wheel bearing). Replaced at just under $400.

Did you have a Dealer do it or an independent shop?
