Clio - annoying hum

Hi Leroy & Chris,
Thanks for your input & Leroy's suggestion regarding auto transmission fluid I think - nay hope is not the answer.
The car, although garaged and standing for most of the last five years 2001-2006 had been run a few times and about 2000 miles put on the clock - but in five years it's not much, although I would have thought enough to keep the fluids viscose.
I have spent over fifty years behind the wheel and sort of tend to go along with Chris and think wheel bearings; however, can either of you tell me if these renault Clio wheel bearings are fairly standard and can be bought as pattern by ID numbers? First French car I've ever had and not sure about a number of things. Still, so far it's pretty reliable - but that damn hum has got to go!
Thanks for the answers and will let you know the outcome in due course.
