    I vote passenger bearing. Also like slavrenz said though, you might want to get the correct torque spec and check the driver's side too.

    Bad CVs make a clicking noise when turning, get underneath look at the cv boots see if they're torn. Bad bearings usually hum, moreso at hwy speeds when they first start going, then make a scraping sound when turning the car, near the end of their life. If the bearings are real bad there will be a small amount of play when you grab the tire and push/pull against it. A misbalanced or bad tire will create a shake in the steering wheel.How many miles on the car?

    It's the wheel bearings I just had mine replace. The noise was coming from both driver and passenger side. The wheels bearing are supposed to be packed but tech gave my wheel bearings back split in half with grease all over. You can check by moving your wheel around when jacked. Also, it makes a thump, thump, thump x1000 while driving and get vibrating while breaking. Labor cost alone was $260 for both sides.

    ya that sounds almost like what mines doing. k so it is the wheel bearing. p5mojo did you do both bearings or just one?

    i know its not the cv axles. i have no play in the wheel when i have it jacked. the driver side spins free'r than the passenger side. and ya ill probably try to retorque the nuts.

    AznXstazy, did changing the bearings solve your problem? I think I have the same problem on my speed6.

    I had to change out my passenger-front wheel bearing a couple of years back. It wasn't that cheap to do either. I had to buy a new hub spindle, because the shaft had been worn down by the bad bearing!

    My 2012 CX-9 is making an intermittent low pitch whining noise. It has just under 36,000 miles on it. If I tap the brake or move the steering wheel a little to the right the noise stops for a short time, but then it starts up again. The noise gets louder if I move the steering wheel slightly to the left. The left rear wheel (driver's side) gets extremely hot. The pitch of the noise does not seem to change if I speed up or slow down. Could this be a wheel bearing? I wouldn't think tapping the brake would temporarily alleviate the problem if it is a wheel bearing.

    Most likely it is a bearing. Keep in mind the rear wheel bearings are a part of an assembly of which the whole thing has to be replaced.

Strange noises that come from the front and change dramatically with turning of the steering wheel often indicate problems with the CV joint.
    Partially agree with this because yes as a general rule it does not thump. However I have had them go bad....and due to my own knowing of what it was and how far I could push it it did begin to thump. However again this is only because I literally road the bearing 1 mile per day to and from work until I fixed it. It was so beat up by time I was done I almost lifted the wheel and hub off and out of the steering knuckle. NOT SAFE AT ALL. Do as I say and not as I do. It's a bearing pull it over and fix it.
