Hey guys!

Decided to ask if anyone has had a similiar problem or any clue as to what's going on.

Lately I've noticed that there is a low humming sound coming from the right side of my Leon when turning at low speeds. Sometimes it almost seems like the sound changes place, most often it comes from the middle section, but sometimes it sounds like it comes from the front or the back. It's only at low speeds and when the wheel is turned almost to the max. I've checked and jiggled all of the wheels, absolutely no play in those, altough there was a slight popping sound when jiggling the left side front wheel but that's not the side where the hum is coming from. Don't think it's anything THAT serious but nonetheless, it bothers me quite a lot.

CV joint, tyre.

My bet would be a CV joint.
That was one of my guesses aswell. I do notice that there is a slight ticking sound when turning to the left coming from the front right tire area. Going to take my car for an oil change this/next week, gonna ask them to check the CV-joints while they're at it

I'd get the wheel jacked up and have a look. I've had a bad tyre that hummed. Could also be something caught in there. Might be easy to spot.
