Likely your power steering pump.... turn the wheel all the way right to the stop.... keep pulling it against the stop while it makes the noise... turn it back to center... check the level of the power steering fluid... then repeat it in the other direction... that bleeds air out of the system... if it still does it then it's either the pump or the rack and pinion (the steering gear). there is one other thing... have someone watch the serpentine belt while the steering wheel is turned... if the belt "jumps" it's loose and likely the tensioner has failed

    that's a possiblity as well... but turn the steering wheel all the way one way and see if you can duplicate the sound

I'd like you to check the brakes.

Sounds like the brake linings are getting thin, on the brake pads.
There is a metal tab that comes off of each pad, and usually has a thick plastic tip. This metal tab touches the rotors, once the lining is worn down. It's a type of warning device, telling you to change the pads.

One does not want to neglect this, as the metal tab's plastic will wear off, allowing the metal tab itself to touch the rotor. The metal tab will start 'eating' into the rotor, causing damage.

It will make score marks, that can turn into deep gouges.
Sometimes the rotor can be turned, (Faced off with a brake lathe), and the rotor will still be serviceable.
(Rotors have a Minimum thickness. If it is thinner than this thickness, it Must be replaced)

Wait too long,and you'll be replacing the rotors. $$$$ for a Land Rover!

    Then perhaps it's the belt tensioner idler pulley. Take the Negative battery clamp off of the battery. No battery power should be attached, when working on this are of the vehicle.

    Use the proper tool, insert it into the belt tensioner bracket, and pull the tension away from the serpentine belt, so that you can remove it partially. Give the belt tensioner idler pulley a spin. See if you can wobble it.

When I drive there is a loud grinding noise in front right side by tire, what could this be?


It could be a number of things, could be the brake disc grinding up against the Caliper, or it could be a wheel ball bearing, those are the most likely since it's a metal on metal sounds, my bet would be the disc brake though. Caliper might need adjusting, or your pads are worn down and rubbing against the disc. Hope this helps.

Sounds like you have a wheel bearing going out. Try swerving car left to rt on a straight road with NO traffic. If the noise is louder one way and less or gone the other it's a wheel bearing

I have a manual tucson and in the morning if its real cold you can hear a bearing just sreaming, this goes away once the trans heats up,I have taked it to the dealership and they replaced the throw out...


A throwout bearing sound would come and go as you engage and disengage the clutch. Does it do that? If yes then maybe it could have been a pilot shaft bushing.
The end of the transmissions input shaft goes into the end of the crankshaft for support and it should have a bushing or some kind of bearing there as well.
Or maybe its not transmission related at all.

Grating soung coming the front wheel


is it like a growling noise, or a metallic "metal on metal" noise, is it clicking? when do you hear it? Common for wheel bearings to go out on those in my experience. usually you can narrow it to a wheel bearing if when you sway the car, you hear a growling noise towards the heavy end of the car, meaning if you turn to the left, causing the car to naturally sway right, the right hand tire front or rear starts making noise, thats usually a wheel bearing. If its a clicking noise while cornering and especially when corning with acceleration, thats usually a CV axle. if its a metal on metal noise, that can be a brake pad worn to low, or even just a simple backing plate to the brake rotor touching and rubbing the rotor.

you need to check the front brake pads to see if the warning tab is touching the rotor ,this will squeal if the pads get worn out before it goes metal to metal, and if that is ok the only thing i would think of is the wheel bearing,
