I've had my CRV since October, and I have noticed that it sometimes makes a low-ish pitched wailing/whining noise when turning tight corners on full lock. It seems to be when it's wet when I usually notice it.

I have the stock Dunlop ST30 tyres. I know people have mentioned that the ST30s are squeaky tyres. Does the noise I'm hearing sound like it's the tyres?

Thanks for that link.

The car has done 29000 miles, and is only a year and a half old. The steering doesn't feel funny at any time, nor does the car make any unusual noises at 60+ mph. It's just the low-pitched squealing noise at low speeds, when cornering tightly, and it doesn't happen very often. I wouldn't describe it as a grinding noise, and there is definitely no change in feeling through the steering wheel.

I'll keep an eye on it to see if it gets any worse, and take it to my dealer if it does.

I was hoping it was just going to be the tyres, and I could forget about it :-(

I would go for the rear diff flush ... had it done on my wife's CR-V (1 1/2 year and 18000km) --> problem solved :D

Btw, it should be covered by the warranty.

It's booked in at the dealer for Thursday this week.
The service assistant to whom I spoke on the phone, suggested that it was probably necessary to flush the rear diff fluid, so that's good.

I hope they can actually reproduce the problem as it's intermittent. I don't want to go there and for them to say they won't do anything because they were unable to reproduce the noise.

Fingers crossed.

The dealer was able to reproduce the noise yesterday, and they flushed the differential fluid. I've not heard the noise since, so that's great.

Thanks for your help, all.
