Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi, A brief history of recent problems. Four to five months back bearings in both the front wheels broke and were replaced after using the vehicle in the broken condition for a few weeks before service. Few weeks after servicing howling noise in front occurred when turning right (i.e. applying load on left wheel). This was observed at all speeds above about 50 km/hr. During subsequent service left front wheel was interchanged with left rear wheel. The problem persists. Service persons then changed all four wheels to new ones and the howling intensity seems to have reduced but still persists. Howling occurs at a particular speed range from 65 to 85 km/hr when decelerating while turning right. Although the intensity has reduced it seems like it can increase again. Could the problem be in the fron differential? How to confirm it is so?

With the wheel bearings failure , it is very possible that the "U" joint or cv joints for the front drive were damaged
I would be looking in that area especially as you mention on turning right

are your front right brake pads worn more than your front left? if so probable cause is the rotor. if not, most likely wheel bearing
