Humming sound from rear wheels ?



  Titanium Clio 182
In the last few weeks I've had a humming sound like wining noise from rear wheels that's obviously louder at higher speeds. Both my rear discs were an advisory on my mot last month could it be the brakes making the noise ? I was thinking wheel bearing ?
Any help appreciated. Cheers.

(which is within the rear disc) buy new discs (genuine renault preferably) and kill two birds with one stone.

Make sure you re-fit the small spacer on the rear of the disc, and fit it the right way around.

  need BRAKES? PM me
The rear discs on these cars have the wheel bearings built in them so it's these which will be knackered mate

Replacing with new discs will sort it

Thanks for the help rob I thought it might of been that. Will give G 172 a shout and sort new brake package :)

and don't over-torque the nut when tightening it
Pretty sure that's why i've got odd noises from the back when cornering,
that's what happens when you don't own a torque wrench
and you snap your breaker bar putting your wheels back on.

Wheel nuts, they weren't making noises before I swapped the tyres round,
I think i've MumRa'd them a little too much.

Neil, how did you get on with that humming noise mate? Mine has started doing the same a week ago and I'm looking into bearings today. At least they're not toooooo expensive. Cheers

Hey Dylan. I've got mine booked in as it's not a daily driver. With time it's getting worse and louder. But from advice on here which is second to none it's the wheel bearings which can be replaced by replacing rear discs as it's built in. So get some Renault rear discs which r made by brembo anyhow £99 from G 172 in traders section and job done it will sort. All the best hope this helps.

Hey thanks mate. It was in fact the wheel bearing which I have has replaced. I didn't have to replace the rotor though. I have an 05 182 so don't know if that makes a difference. Anyway, job done!
