    Could be the wheel bearing.

    yes could be a bearing, jack your wheel and grab the wheel and feel for movement (front left).

    Mine makes a winding sound too ever since I got the air con regassed, I think it is the compressor bearings (front left).

    or it could be the belt tensiometer pully, they often wind and whirr when they are on the way out (front middle).

    Cheers
