The sensor won't make any noise, but the hub/bearing will. Even if the bearing is bad, it doesn't necessarily mean the sensor is bad also.

Did you have the sensor diagnosed?

They have to be replaced as a unit anyway. They are inseperable.

Than you'll have to replace the whole hub/bearin as stated above.. when the bearings are shot.. 2 things to check is see if you can move the tire sideways.. the other thing is your car will start to sound like a prop plane.. the faster you go.. the louder it gets.. and braking won't affect the pitch ( minus from the speed slowing down ). You can also hear it when you turn corners ( but that also be an alignment issue which doesn't apply right now )
