When a mechanic identifies grinding noise in front wheel when turning right as worn bearings, is the only thing that is needed a replacement a front differential bearing?

Asked by Jul 11, 2017 at 12:10 PM about the 2005 Acura MDX AWD with Touring Package

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Acura MDX is making grinding noise that elevates the further the steering wheel is turned to the right and the more downhill the road slants.  Honda mechanic at first identified it as a tire issues (worn), but a change of tires has not subsided the issue.  Worn front bearings are now being identified as in need of replacement.

If a bearing is bad you must replace it. I would first suspect the hub bearings, not the differential bearings but your mechanic has first hand knowledge, I can only speculate based on what you posted.

when driving and you turn left does the noise lessen and get louder as you turn to the right if so replace your rf wheel bearing

Thanks for the answers. Found the correct hub bearings and ordered them up for both the left and right.
