hey all im getting a loud humming noise from the front end of my 98 honda accord v-6. got about 119 thousand miles on it . the noise is coming from the front passenger side .i recently changed the front axle (which was bad ) wondering if it could be the front wheel bearing ?? i dont want to go out and buy one yet. i thought i should ask first ? the noise shounds like bad tire noise , it also has new tires thanks
as you are driving turn the wheel, right, then left. if when you turn the wheel and the sound goes away, BINGO that is a wheel bearing, and the direction you turn the wheel will tell you which side is bad

well i tried turning the wheel to the left and right but i couldnt really tell if the noise went away ... i hava a correction on the speed it takes to hear the noise i first said it was 10 mph it's more like 30mph
does not matter the miles you are diagnosing a problem so need to eliminate components from being the cause rotate tires and
drive car if noise still there than you know for sure you dont have to wonder about tires it is the easiest and cheapest thing to do ;-) it is free oh make sure they are properly inflated
