When I make tight turns, or a uturn, there is a loud humming noise, seems to be coming from the rear, but I'm not positive. Tires are new, bearings are fine, have had regular service since purchasing new.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi joanie46,

I suspect it is the rear differential causing the problem. The oil is overdue for replacement or the wrong type had been used.

Replace the rear differential fluid. Use only Honda DPSP II.

You might need to replace the fluid twice, replace once, run vehicle and if noise still appears at a reduced level, replace it again.

Dual pump fluid Part # 08200-9002, 1.3 quarts
