What is the reason for front grinding when turning

This due to either a worn wheel bearing or a worn front drive arm.

The most common cause of a grinding noise when turning is a worn front wheel bearing. What happens is that the weight of the car is shifted on to that wheel as you make the turn causing the worn bearing to make a grinding noise.

My vw polo is making a screeching noise when turning left and a quiter noise while driving straight (sounds the same just quieter) and when i parked up today it had a burning smell from front left wheel...

Sounds like a left front wheel bearing...a must check for safety...usually a free check at the best shops. Could also be a worn out brake pad/rotor dragging...again a free inspection but please have checked. The difference when turning sound points toward the wheel bearing:( Hope this helps.

My 2001 ford escape xlt the driver side seat started moving forward until my knees were in the dash and i was on top of the steering wheel the seat is electric where should i take the car? also there is a...

The knocking noise sounds like it could be a CVjoint going out. This noise only happens when turning I assume? That would be another shop fix because Ican not tell you on here how to replace it but it needs to get done right away. As far as the seat goes. Could you move it back into the correct place with the operating buttons after it moved you? Was there a chance you setyour purse or some other object down by the control switch that made it move?

I just bougt a 2001 tiberob and i hear a knocking noise on the left front side. I think it only happens during accelaration. what can that be.

if the noise only happens when turning and accelerating, probally a failed CV joint, this is on the drive shaft from the gearbox to the front wheels, look under the front of the car behind the wheels there is a shaft with a big rubber boot on it, if the boot is split open and grease everywhere then that joint is stuffed and will require new one.
