This is my Mother's vehicle, '05, and I do all the maintenance. We bought it for her used a year ago and now after new tires it has a vibration when cornering at moderate speeds. Setting the cruise at 45 MPH I feel it more turning left than right and under slight load in the seat.
I changed the rear differential fluid, with Honda fluid, and no change.
I need to know if the transfer case has separate fluid or if it uses the transmission fluid.

I have noticed/read others have changed front axles. Some solved issue, some haven't.
I think front axle balance/vibration would be felt in the steering wheel.

Rear wheel bearings in Gen2 Vs have been known to fail. And, that is the speed at which you will sense the 'hum'.

If you feel it during left-hand curves it's the RH bearing.

It's difficult to tell the bad bearing statically, when jacking the car. Once you take the weight off, the wheels spin silently. :mad:

If you are thinking of doing the bearing yourself, SEARCH here and on YouTube for postings. The bearing serves as the trigger for the ABS wheel sensor so it must be installed in the proper orientation. And if you are in the rust belt, you might damage the sensor during the repair.

(The transfer case is common with the trans, BTW)
