(2006 Lincoln Zephyr) - There's a rubbing sound and feeling (felt thru steering wheel) when I turn the car either left or right. Initially thought is was a belt but the sound is coming from the lower left wheel area. Any ideas where to start?

It could be several things .... Wheel bearings - jack the front driver side up. First ... just rotate the wheel ... you should hear NOTHING. Any noise menas there is probably a wheel bearing/hub issue. Now take hold of the tire in the 9am and 3pm positions. Try to push/pull from side to side ... if there is any "play" in the wheel the bearings are going. Brake line interference - a lot of brake lines have a plastic sheath in the wheel well area ... check to see that the line/plastic sheath shows no wear when you have the wheel off...that might cause the issue. Steering linkage - even though the upper control arms were recently replaced look at all the ball joints and grab hold of them and see if there is any play/movement.
Repeat on the passenger side..
Good luck on your troubleshooting
buy a rebuilt axle and pay about 170.00 for the part. have it installed for 50.00 labor. unless you are pretty mechanical the remove the wheel involved and the brake assy . leave the hose on the caliper and let it hang. then remove the center nut on the axle protruding thru the hub . disconnect lower ball joint and remove the old axle.
Not quite sure if you are talking about the stoplamps or the parklamps which would I think be front and back. But if you look in the fuse panel located inside the vehicle to the left of the steering wheel by the brake pedal, in the number 4 position is a 15 amp fuse which covers parklamps & the license plate lamps. In the number 21 position is the stoplamps fuse and is a 7.5 amp fuse. This should be in your owners manual if you have one. if you need an owners manual for your car, you can email me at email@example.com with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy of it. No worries it won't cost you anything.....yes there are still free things in the world. Anyway here is a picture of that fuse box layout for you if you need it. I hope this helps you and good luck.
Hi! You may have a power steering issue. Please check the power steering fluid level if its sitting on the Max or Hi level. IF its not, then you may need to re fill it to get rid of the annoying noise. Plus, running on an almost empty power steering fluid may damage the steering pinion. Hope this helps and have a good one!
There is nothing to grease. Someones playing with your head. There was a tech bulletin out, on the steering squeeking. I would flush the power steering fluid. I have a 2004. Let us know from time to time how it's doing
