Apparently most dealers will tell you that this sound is from rust building up on the brake rotors because you missed your regular maintenance.

Clicking noise turning right


Could be a tire hitting the inner fender skirting. Check both front tires to see if they are clean/scraped right at the tread and side. This is a good indication that the tire is rubbing something. Also, since your turning right, you put more weight of the vehicle on the left side. You might want to check the front and rear wheel bearings on the left. I've heard them click before, but only under pressure.

Loud grinding sound on front right wheel , after car is left at rest and during sharp turns


Depending on the model of car it coould be worn CV joints or worn wheel bearings. I am guessing CV joints but you do not say what model car you have.

2005 Toyota Camry is making a loud scraping sound after driving 15 mins...What could be causing the noise? I took it in to Toyota and Firestone and they couldn't find anything...


Take the car out on a quiet parking lot(no traffic) get it up to speed and when the noise is occuring turn the car to the right and to the left...did the noise go away???
I think on one of those turns it did...if it went away on the left turn the left front wheel bearing/hub assembly is bad and needs replacement, if it went away on the right turn the right side hub/bearing needs replacement. Hope that helps!!

Loud popping sound when turning left


I recently had the same problem, it ended up being the front stabilizers and the drive shaft.

When you make a sharp left hand or right hand turn there is a loud clunking/thud sound coming from down below.


Lift the vehicle and turn the front wheels one at time for the noise.Sounds like a wheel bearing is shot

Rear scraping sound, Also when placed on lift and in gear (all wheel drive) the rear left wheel does not spin


Take it in for proper diagnosis - that's not supposed to happen in an 'ALL WHEEL DRIVE' - all WHEELS ARE SUPPOSED TO TURN.

93 Grand Caravan right rear wheel/brake problem(s)


well i can help with problem #2

even if you tightened the wheel bearing, it is probably worn out..

what it does when it's loose is you won't hear much noise when you drive on a strait road but the minute you put some weight on it, like when you take a curve, the weight of the body is applied on the bearing resulting in a scraping noise....

and the faster you'll drive the more noise you'll get

so let's say you take a left turn you're gonna hear noise from the right wheel...

Scraping Sound When Turning Left and Right & Steering Locks Up


Careful - a long time ago there was a recall on Toyota's T100 steering wheel shaft. It could fracture - and might cause the problem you seem to be having.
