I have a 2006 Honda Element as well, and mine started making "rubbing" noises when I made a slow hard turn left or right. It had 49K on it. Took it to a dealership and had it looked at. The technician knew what it was right off the bat. The rear differential needed to be serviced. Said the fluid had broken down and needed replacing. $79.00 to fix. CRV have the same problem. Just get it serviced and it should be ok.

fords famous power steering pump design its common if you replace the pump with a rebuilt one there is a paper with the new pump that warns you of this noise for about 500 miles after installing hope this helps
honda had the same problem in the eighties and fitted a weighted ring onto the longer of the two driveshafts,just a thought,(i supose if someone comes up with the solution GM will pay them for the R & D.)YEAH RIGHT.....
Even though you had the brake pads replaced, and since the sound you describe is a "rubbing" sound, I would suspect that the brake caliper piston is sticking and causing brake drag. The only way to check is to pull the wheel and check the caliper. If it is sticking, it will wear the pad out quickly and wll generate heat. After driving, check for excessive heat coming from the wheel. It could be a wheel bearing, but I would check out the brake caliper first. Sure hope this helped. Good luck.
This is caused by deterioration of the Fluid in the rear differential of the car. This occurs when the rear end is opened at its extremes at first and will progressively get worse to the point where it will make the noise all the time while driving. First the fluid in the rear end needs to be changed, and replaced with the appropriate Honda fluid (either vtm 4 fluid or dual pump fluid depending on model) if the doesnt immediatley fix the problem, there is a burnish procedure that your local honda dealer can perform for you which involves changing the fluid and cleaning the clutches inside the rear diff. Good luck!
