04 350z Humming noise

Recommended Posts

Hi guys and girls, I'm a new 350z owner so not much experience with these cars.

 

I've recently purchased a 04 350z GT, it has a humming noise from what I believe is the rear of the car. It not constant and is more noticable at higher speeds and much more when turning right. 

 

Any ideas on what this could be? Or where I should start looking to resolve it?

 

Thanks in advance!

Huming noise that changes when turning. Sounds like a wheel bearing.

 

Jack her up and check for any free play in the wheels / have a garage look at it for you if your not sure, that would be my first check anyway.

Another trick I learned, is you won't always feel play in a knackered wheel bearing by grabbing it, but with the wheel off the ground, put you hand on the rear spring... On the good side first and spin the wheel.. and then on the suspected bad side. If its knackered, you'll feel the graunching  through the suspension spring.. Weird but it's true.. Well, in my case anyhow. Can't remember where I read that

When I had a Zed I had the same problem. Every time I went past Highgate Cemetery I heard a loud humming coming from the back of the car ... sounded a bit like Queen playing Bohemian Rhapsody ... but backwards :scare:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then I realised. It was just Freddie Mercury decomposing ! :sorry:

Yeah wheel bearing is what I thought, I'll take a look at her and see if ones going. Thanks for that tip I'll give it a go :thumbs: hopefully that's all it is
