    Whirring Noise coming from Back on Motorways?!?!

    Hi all, nice to be here! I have just purchased my second Astra. It is a 56 plate, sport hatch 1.9CDTI 120, I have noticed that on Motorways I can hear a bit of a whirring noise/vibrating noise coming from the back!! Please does anyone have any suggestions as to what this may be??

    Hard to say exactly but I would say back left side. Can't tell whether its the exhaust, wheel or something else. Its quite a deep sound and only when I go fast (over 60mph) on Motorways....

    Might not be your answer but I sometimes get a moaning noise from the passenger seat whenever I go over 90 on the motorway, but only when the wife is onboard.

    Does the noise increase with speed? Wheel bearing perhaps...

    Haha funny I get that problem too with my missus! But seriously, wheel bearing could be a good shout. Thanks.

    Both of mine went on the rear a few months ago, the noise was really loud towards the time they got changed.

    id say wheel bearing had this on my corsa, does the noise change if you take a bend on the motorway at all?
