My right front wheel howls with increasing volume and frequency as vehicle speeds up. When vehicle is turned to the left noise increases. When turned right, noise dimishes. Rotated tires to no avail. Noise persists when vehicle is shifted into neutral at speed. Believe problem is wheel bearing. Is there any possible way to confirm that it is a wheel bearing versus rotor, etc.? What is the approximate cost of repair for a set of front bearing replacements?

While driving and with radio off, listen to the noise. Find a road that is clear on which you can drive without any traffic. Drive at a constant speed and make light shifts to the left and right, by doing this, the weight of the vehicle will shift to the apposite side of the steering wheel to which you turn.
When you turn to the left, the weight goes to the right (passenger side) wheel, if the noise stops, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
When you turn to the right, the weight goes to the left (driver side), if the noise stops, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
If the noise does NOT go away, then you may have bad CV's.
Another way to check is by lifting and securing in jack stands. Vehicle in neutral and with your hands, rotate wheel with one hand. Other hand place on suspension component. Spring of strut. If you feel slight vibration, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
With vehicle on jack stands, one hand on top of wheel and other on bottom, try to see if you can move the wheel in and out which may be a had CV.
You probably have a bad hub bearing.If you can change the noise by slightly turning the vehicle one way or the other it is a hub bearing.If you turn left and the noise is still there then it is the right front bearing.If you turn right and the noise is still there it is the left side.If it makes the noise both ways it could be both front hubs.Hope this helps.Good luck.

either the front or the rear turn signal bulb is blown, that is why the flash frequency is high. replace the bulb and the problem will be solved. best to replace both the front and rear turn signal bulbs. good luck.
Did you check your Transmission fluid and your differential fluids make sure there up and I don't know if you checked your rear wheel bearings or not, You can usually tell a wheel bearing when you are driving the car at highway speeds and you go around a corner and it get quite a bit louder Depending on what way you are turning if your turning right and it gets louder it will usually be the right side front or rear. the left usually the left front or back. some cases I have even heard Axles making a Howling Noise. Please let me know what you come up with. And Thanks in advance If I helped you out any. Bear001
