2011 HHRls is making a buzzing or whirling sound and it increases with speed. Sound seems to be coming from left front. Have replaced front wheel bearing assembly on drivers side.

Asked by Apr 12, 2017 at 07:56 PM about the 2011 Chevrolet HHR LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This noise only happens when vehicle is moving. I know it's not a CV joint they make a clicking noise. The noise does change some when driving and turning the wheel from left to right while traveling down the road. This is why  I determined it maybe a wheel bearing. This was replaced.

Check the wheel bearing on the right side then. Sound can be elusive. Another cause for a whirling sound would be from the water pump. The impeller gets eroded away.

Can someone tell me why my hhr2011 is making noise after replacing my front grill
