Could be a lot of things, bad ball joint or CV joint if you have 4X4? Grinding is never good the more you drive it the more you tear up.

SOURCE: 1998 NISSAN ALTIMA FRONT END NOISE / RT SIDE GRINDING NOISE,.... BEARING?

CV joint has gotten debris and moisture inside. The CV boot is bad and not protecting the joint. Now its metal on metal grinding. This happens when turning as there is more pressure on the joint. Please fix this ASAP as it can be dangerous to drive on a bad CV joint. While I have seen people drive with a bad CV joint for over 4k miles, it is NOT recommended!

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.

SOURCE: My truck makes a grinding noise when turning to

Hi

You need to jack up that wheel and spin it by hand, if you hear the similar noise it is most likely a noisy wheel bearing. Also if you have revently driven over loose metal road could be stone lodged in disc assembly. Could also be the wear indicators on the disc pads "telling you" that the pads are nearly worn out.

Hope this helps cbacer

Hi R,
If I understand correctly the sound you're describing could be something known as 'pinking' It occurs when the ignition timing is too far advanced and can damage the engine. Make sure that you're using the correct octane rated fuel in your vehicle and thereafter take it for a tune. Whoever does it, should set the timing at 10 degrees BTDC. To set the timing correctly, open the diagnostic socket in the engine compartment which when standing facing the front of the car will be on your right and the vehicles left. Open up the cover and bridge between T and E1 (A small directory is inside the same cover, which will help you find the correct connections) Only when the bridge is connected can the ignition timing be set correctly. This should be carried out with a strobe timing light with the engine running.

Grinding noise in 2001 cavalier 2.2 engine replaced left front hub noise is still there. how difficult to replace left cv joint?


If you still think the noise is coming from the left side CV joint it would be more advisable to replace the entire axle as an assembly. For the time and effort it takes, you can usually get a rebuilt axle assembly for only a few dollars more than the CV joint and the boot required to repair one. You will need a large axle nut socket (usually 30 - 32mm) to remove the axle nut. The lower ball joint and tie rod will need to be separated along with the brake caliper and rotor, from the spindle. I would recheck the grinding noise before doing it. A lot of wheel bearings are mistakenly diagnosed to the wrong side. If the noise is loudest when turning left, most people would assume the left side wheel bearing is at fault. However if the noise is loudest turning left it indicates the right side wheel bearing is most likely at fault. Due to the weight distribution of the front end, turning left the weight all transfers to the right side, loading that bearing. Make sure thats not the case before tackling an axle.

Hello i would check your wheel bearings or sometimes called bearing hub .Jack car up prop the car with axle stands now remove your tires and rotors once removed wiggle you bearing hub left to the right your bearing hub should have minimal play one side to the other is obvious the looser play hub will be your noise you have been experiencing.most people call this road noise.

Rumbling & grinding under front end


Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

Noise from front end more so when you are turning


You also could have received a bad axle. Sometimes the rebuilds don't hold good tolerance and can make the same noise you are trying to get rid of. Is it full-time 4wd? Maybe the driveshaft ujoint also.
