i also thought my 2004, tacoma had a bad wheel bearing. It turned out that it was the wheel itself not the bearing. Try rotating the tires and see if the noise moves to the rear. I waited 30000 miles to rotate, hopefully that will help.

What are the symptoms of a bad wheel bearing on Honda odessey?

You will hear a grinding noise. Driving down the road turn the steering wheel sharply to the left and if the noise goes away the left front wheel bearing is bad. Turn the wheel sharply to the right and if the noise goes away the right front wheel bearing is bad. Be careful and do not turn the wheel too sharply or you may loose control. Or you can simply jack up the front wheels and spin them with your hand. You can easily hear a bad bearing.
