Smile Renault Laguna 1 - Humming Noise

Hi everybody

I have just bought a wonderful Laguna 1,8 est. from 1999. I have only had it for two days and are not so familiar with it yet. The car is in great shape imho - but one thing worries me a bit;

If I start the engine and step out of the car I can clearly hear a humming or buzzing "electric" type of sound. It is most clear when I'm standing directly behind the car. In this position it sounds like its coming from under the car - direction of the right rear wheel. I guess the same sound could be coming from the other wheel as well - but there it's probably drowned in engine/exhaust noise. If I crawl under the car the sound gets all diffused and seem to come from nowhere in particular.

Only thing I can think off is something related the the ABS system. Does anybody recognize this? Perhaps it's just normal? Car drives and brakes excellent and I have no warning lamps lit on the dash.

Thanks in advance and best regards

Lars, Copenhagen
