Drum hum 2005 ZXW

Need to replace the rear bearing/drum on my wagon, just not sure which one. When I turn left, the notice goes away. Is that the left(driver) or right(passenger) drum/bearing that is bad?

What do you mean by "notice goes away"?

Jack-up the back of your car, then grab, shake, push, pull, and rotate each wheel to feel and hear any problems with either wheel.

The noise is what I meant to type. When driving and turning left the rear wheel hum goes away. It's NOT tire or road noise as it is the same no matter the surface type. Just need to know, turn left rear wheel bearing noise goes away. Is that the driver or passenger rear bearing. Shouldn't need to take anything apart or shake it.

Sorry, I do not know which of your rear wheels is causing the hum noise. I did not say that you need to take anything apart. If you do what I said, you might feel and/or hear which wheel needs to be worked on.

BTW, if you want/need to get inside the drum for bearing or brake pad replacement, when I replaced my rear brake pads, I used Auto-Zones free tool loan program for the 30mm socket and a 1/2-inch drive breaker bar.

Yes, a quick check of simply spinning each wheel jacked up in the air will often show the bad one by sound.
