This is typical of a wheel bearing that is going out. I would imagine that it is your right front, but it could be either side. It is a safety issue as it helps to hold your wheel to your car so get it to a mechanic quickly.

SOURCE: Loud grinding noise from front end

You can see the brake disc on the front wheels, Check both sides of each side, looking for scoring. Brake pads have wear insicators on them that are metal tabs that contact the rotor (disc) when pads get thin. It would be better to pull the wheels off to get a good look at the pads. Good luck

SOURCE: 1998 chevy cavalier 2.2l wheel noise

usually if noise is made when turning right it would be the right wheel bearing easiest way to check would be to lift the car off the ground on that side until tire clears the ground and spin the wheel to see if it makes noise also try grabbing the wheel on the top and bottom at the same time and see if you can move the wheel back and forth checking for slack.

Have you checked the CVJ? Does it make the noise in a turn or just going straight? You did not say if you had checked the tire for roundness or a bulge which would indicate ply or tread separation.

Why does my car make howling noise that sounds like its coming from either front right or center of the car, it doesnt pull while going straight, the engine is newer with 40,000 miles on it, the wheel...


You probably have a bad hub bearing.If you can change the noise by slightly turning the vehicle one way or the other it is a hub bearing.If you turn left and the noise is still there then it is the right front bearing.If you turn right and the noise is still there it is the left side.If it makes the noise both ways it could be both front hubs.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Chevy malibu 1998 make like a grinding noise when i turn right, i brake apart the hub bearing, rotor and cv axle, when i move the axles i feel that the one on the driver side its a little bit hard to move...


the left. when you turn left it pushes pressure on the bearing quieting it down turn right and it pulls the bearing you can verify this by jacking up the vehicle and tilting the wheel top to bottom you should be able to feel the play in the bearing if its making noise

Humm in car


Try moving the tire to a different position and see if the sound stays with the tire or stays in the right front. Does it do it when braking, accelerating, driving straight all the time? Also - if you get on a long straight stretch of road with no traffic - switch it to neutral and turn the engine off - REMEMBER - you will lose power steering and brakes with the engine off.
