Question about Mercury Sable
I have a 2004 Mercury Sable and recently when I start driving my car I hear a grinding noise coming from the driver side front wheel. The grinding dissipates as I drive and is more noticeable when the temp outside drops below 25 degrees.
1st have the brake pads checked, then if the pads are OK you likely have a defective wheel bearing/hub assembly

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

sounds like wheel bearing, jack wheel up, an see if there is any free play, by trying to move wheel side to side

It sounds like you have a bad c v or constant velocity joint. Look under the car next to the wheel look for a rubber accordian type unit, if the rubber is torn or lose the grease has escaped and damaged the joint. You can replace it yourself, but if your not mechanically inclined would say take it to a shop.
