Squealing noise from front of car

Hey guys,

Iím hoping someone has run into this problem and can help me. Iíve recently noticed a squealing/whistle sound coming from the front of my car. It only happens when Iím driving about 40 km/hr or higher then stops when I get below 40 km/hr. I thought it was a bearing issue but most mechanics are telling me itís not. I decided to replace the front passenger bearing and itís still making the same noise. Not sure if I should go and try and replace my driver side bearing... Thereís still a lot of brake pads left just to rule that out as well.

I drive a 2009 Acura TL SHAWD and it has about 170k km on it.

Thanks all!

Forgot to add this

Sorry forgot to mention I also just changed the accessory belt and have tried revving the engine in idle but no sounds. Kinda sounds like metal brushing on metal causing the squeal.

- Most likely source of noise is the pulley on tension arm. I change mine every time I change the belt.
- Could be alternator. Mine made a squealing noise when it failed.
- Reverify that the belt is installed correctly.
- Turn AC off and if the squeal is still there that eliminates the AC compressor as the culprit.

Would it make noise in idle for the alternator? Cause mine doesn’t. It only makes a noise when driving.

Apparently my mechanic is now saying it’s the drive shaft. I do hear some noise coming from there when we spin the wheels... I hope it’s not the problem since those are apparently quite pricey.

I have a 2012 TL Elite and had the exact same whining noise.
It was the propeller shaft.

Thanks for the response! Iíve read on some other posts on this but want to be certain since itís gonna cost me $1500 for the propeller shaft. Did it sound like itís coming from the front of the car when windows are up? Is the propeller shaft is in the middle of the car? My mechanic said he heard it from the drive shaft front passenger side... is that the same thing?
