You'll be hearing it upfront instead of the rear-could be a wheel bearing problem-who knows
Wheel bearings do not fail often on Hondas.
Is the car an SI? Manual or Automatic transmission?
Is the noise changing with wheel speed or vehicle speed? Meaning, if you put the tranny in neutral while it is happening, does it change with the RPMs on Tachometer, (or just the fact that you are in neutral and off the gas will drop engine to idle speed), or does it only change when the speed of the vehicle slows down?
This will help to isolate the noise some.
Are there any performance or handling or braking changes?
Wheel bearings are tough and will sound different, sometimes, when you are turning. Keep an ear out for the noise changing when turning as well.
Do you park outside under trees or other stuff that could have made its way into the air box? Not likely since you are kind of describing other symptoms. However, see if you hear any noise when A/C fan is on at different speeds when not moving.
Does the car make and clicking noises when you make a sharp U-Turn?
Let me know and I will watch for your reply and get back ASAP.
