Exclamation Grinding Noise...

Hearing a grinding noise from the front passenger side wheel area. It happens when I turn to the right only but not when I turn left. When it's cold I hear it louder but when it's warm it's a little quieter can't figure out what it is.i know it's now my tire rubbing the fenders. I know it's not my rotors cause it's not when I brake just when I'm slowly turning right. Does any one know what it could be or have this happen to them?

Sounds like it can be a bearing

Take the wheel off and spin your hub and see if it's making noise. Or wiggle it and see if there's play.

Showoff thread finally!!!! : )

Most likely, jack it up and give everything a shake, see what moves that shouldn't but if it's a grinding noise it's usually brakes or bearings

It'd also make noise at high speed and get louder turning one way when it's under load and the other way it's quieter when less load is on it.

Be thankful it's a bolt on and not a press in and come as just the bearing.

I would much rather have just the bearing haha so much cheaper and you can just repack them every now and then..... can be quite messy though....

X2. Really not too difficult of a swap. Press-in ones are awful.
