Question about Toyota Corolla
It only grinds when turning left. I put it up on blocks and the brakes are fine. I turned the wheel by hand and can't hear anything. I put it in drive and didn't hear anything as the wheels turned. However, when car is off and I turn the wheels back and forth by hand I can hear a clack at the transmission where the axles come together and I notice that the engine racks.
Could be CV jonits.

SOURCE: Grinding noise in the left
grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things.
a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).

3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.

Check the CV joint that the axle connects to. They make a clicking sound when turning a corner if badly worn. Both CV joints are commonly replaced when one of them goes out.

It is most likely the drivers side front wheel bearing. These are an easy fix for a mechanic, or if you mechanically inclined you could try it yourself (2 hour max job) and part runs around 50-70 bucks.

Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP
