it is most likely a wheel bearing problem.. which could lead to serious problems. if i were you i would not take it on the highway, until you get this checked by a mechanic who knows what theyre doing, and replace the wheel bearing.
sounds like your washers/bearings/spacers finally degraded. To make sure, pop off the little flexy cover. You will see a linkage that goes straight into the transmission. If the bearings there (the little white plastic ones) look eaten up, that's most likely your problem.
The easiest way is to buy the knuckle and front hub together. It is more expensive but unless you have access to a press to press the knuckle from the hub and then press a new bearing in it will be impossible to replace.
Also like any wheel bearing job, change in pairs not just one. So change both front wheels because if one is going then the other is not far behind.
a wheel bearing will make noise when there is weight on it. if you turn the wheel from side to side while driving and shift the weight it will tell you what side is the noisey bearing. the bearing is pressed in. you must use a press to replace.
Sounds to me like there is an alignment issue witht he clutch disk. DId they buy a clutch kit with install tool? If not then good chance its not aligned and will need to come back out to align. you can also pick up a universal clutch alignment tool from autoparts store.
