Check you wheel bearings and CV joints. Check the inner CV joints also.

I have a 05 Scion XB We replaced the front left axle because it broke at the nut/bolt on outside of axle. It broke again and we replaced again.


check that the axle you replaced it with is the correct length for that side ( left and right axles are different lenghts)
what you have described indicates that the axle is too short for that side and is coming out of the seal
check for suspension ball joint problems or strut failure that allows the cv joint to be out of position when turning the steering wheel
it may require that the vehicle is repaired by an accredited repairer

Grinding noise in driver side front when wheel is turned to right - no noise when wheel is neutral


This may be either a dragging brake shoe or possibly a wheel bearing. The car needs to be taken to a mechanic or one of the national service dealers (Meineke, Midas, Wheel Works, etc.) for a diagnosis before the problem becomes more expensive.

I have a slight clunking noise coming from the front right(passenger)side of my wheel. My xB has 83k on it, so this could be any number of things. I also have been getting more uneven tire wear on that...


take it to an alignment shop .and have them check it out . might be strut or CV joints. no one online that can not see it /test it can assist further

On a hard left turn there is a grinding noise from the driver side front tire. Have done a visual inspection and everything looks fine. No play in wheel bearings. This is a 2005 Scion xb


If its the bearing - there might not be any play..
Bad bearing usually get worse & worse pretty quick..

Shouldnt be the problem on a 05 - but have you looked at the CV joints ?

I have a whistle or humming noise from the front of 05 Montana.


Put wide tape on different areas of the windshield edge as a test to see if the noise changes.Then you may know where the noise originates and can correct the noise.
Just by chance,it is a wind noise? and not a front wheel bearing going bad?which is common on these vehicles and can create a humming at different speeds.Next time when the hum shows up turn the steering wheel slightly left and right at road speed and if you can change the hum,it's 99% a wheel bearing.
