Hi there,

It sounds like you may have a wheel bearing failing. Chock front wheels and jack up rear wheels Safty first and always use jack stands. Spin wheel by hand and listen for any noise, grab wheel at top and bottom and feel for any free movement (try rocking back and forward) there should be no movement. If you hear a rumbling sound or the is any free movement, the bearings will need to be removed, washed and inspected for failure.

Exactly the advice I would give. What was the year of the car. I have found that the bearings in the 2000 accord and others in that era appear to be of a chincy design. The hub assembly is what is replaced but the way it was designed was very poor. Try to nail down which side it is first and try replacing that one.

The part from Honda will run you about $98 a piece. Very easy to replace. Pull off the brake caliper, remove the two screws from the rotor, use a sharp chisel to get the dust cap pulled away and once the dust cover is off use a small pointed chisel to tap back the lock on the nut. Turn off the nut and rotor will slide off easily. Reverse to install. Don't forget to knock the lock back on the nut.
