Pinion/spyder gears are about the only thing that would only make noise when turning if they were damaged.

Noise in left front wheel

Grinding noise, growling noise, thumping noise? Something else? If it's a grinding noise, more than likely it is during stops. In this case it is probably metal on metal in the brake pads. If it is a growling it can be in the wheel bearing or CV shaft which usually gets louder with turning or banking. Is it is a thumping can be from a tire issue, a strut, a sway bar link banging around etc. Need to clarify the noise and how you are hearing it.

Have 2007 Saturn Vue AWD . Makes a grinding noise from rearend when accelerating from stop sign in snowy,slippery conditions.

thats AWD, is your vehicle normally front wheel drive, theres no easy way for the transfer case to jump into AWD, mine does it to although mines a Expedition an its the front that kicks in.....The only thing you can do is keep a eye on fluid inside axle....

When I turn sharp turns my jeep makes a growling noise, like the 4 wheeldrive is activated why? It just started doing this about 6 mos ago

Which transfer case do you have? Does it have AWD or 4WD? Does it only do it while the steering wheel is being turned, or all the way through the turn?

If it does it only while turning the steering wheel, there is a bushing in the steering column that is making noise. I have seen this happen on an '00 and '01. If it is making noise all the way through the turn, and you have AWD, it probably is the front axle. A neighbor of mine had this happen on her '00. Turns out the front axle wasn't filled properly from the factory. Added the appropriate amount of gear oil and noise went away.

If you have 4WD, make sure you're not driving around with the transfer case locked in.
