When turning, 2016 crv makes a whooping sound. A dealer said it was the motor differential drive. Is there a motor on the differential? Thanks!

Yes there is an electric hydraulic pump in the differential and it has been known to make a chirping / croaking noise. When do you hear the noise.

Same flute/owl like noise on my 2016 CR-V EX that started about 6 mo into ownership. Occurs more often in colder weather. After researching it here I finally got the rear differential pump motor replaced with a month to spare under warranty. Big thanks to the members here! Tip: make a cell phone video of the noise while driving to the dealership cause it never fails to duplicate it while test driving with the mechanic.
