Question about 2005 Scion xB

When I turn to the right I have a grinding noise

My scion xb has only one problem. When I turne to the right there is a grinding noise that seems to be coming from the front passengers wheel. It is not the same noise like when the cv joints are going out. There is no clicking or "jerking" when a turn is made. When you turn to the right the sound is almost like if something is scraping.... but there is nothing there. Any ideas?

    My 2006 Scion Xb started to make strange noise while making sharp right turn at slow speed. It sounds like door hinges that need lubrication. It only occurs once a while. Should I have it checked or wait until it make more noises?

    jack front of car up and check if wheel is loose or wheel bearing is loose

    remove your wheel and look for any shinny scrap marks on the

    brake rotors and on the inside of the wheel

Could possibly be brake or wheel bearing issue.

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 ?

Noise while turning

no clicking what so ever i asked a friend of mine who used to be a mechanic and he said that it could possibly be the dust sheild on the brake caliper rubbing, there is no clicking sound. It makes a sound like the rotor is bumping into something when you turn. if i turn only a little there is little or no noise and it gets worse/louder the more u turn in that direction.
