Check for failed wheel bearings or loose wheel on studs. Check suspension ball joints and steering joints the problem is serious so have the front inspected by a competent mechanic

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

SOURCE: Grinding noise in front end

Hi
Had the exact same problem, on a used 2003 Protege ES with 82,000 miles that I purchased.
Started with the loud "road noise" I thought well maybe thats just the sound that it makes.
And then noticed that it varies when turning.
This will continue to get worse and then your abs light will come on when it gets bad enough to trigger the sensor..
It turned out to be a bad wheel bearing.
Take it to a shop and have an experienced mechanic check it out. Its repairable.

SOURCE: 04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end

3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
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.

2002 toytota camry left front makes noise turning right


This is usually a bad bearing. The tire is tilting to one side and causing uneven wear. The shimmy is because of the slack in the bearing and the contact the front rotor is having with the brake pad. Every time the low side comes around the rotor will hit the brake pad and grab it.

You will need bearings and brake work.

2005 Toyota Camry is making a loud scraping sound after driving 15 mins...What could be causing the noise? I took it in to Toyota and Firestone and they couldn't find anything...


Take the car out on a quiet parking lot(no traffic) get it up to speed and when the noise is occuring turn the car to the right and to the left...did the noise go away???
I think on one of those turns it did...if it went away on the left turn the left front wheel bearing/hub assembly is bad and needs replacement, if it went away on the right turn the right side hub/bearing needs replacement. Hope that helps!!

Car won't go in reverse


when reverse fails the tranmission is done, the part that causes this is deep inside the transmission (reverse apply band), this means u must tear the trans down to replace it, then u need to install a seal kit, that means an overhaul, the labor is the same

1991 toyota camry front drivers side makes noise while driving


It's the left front wheel bearing. Take it to your favorite mechanic if you have one, any good tech can do it, but he/she could run into complications with a car of that age. (The hip bone's connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone's connected to the knee bone, etc, and there's probably a good share of corrosion down there).
