What is the reason for front grinding when turning


This due to either a worn wheel bearing or a worn front drive arm.

The most common cause of a grinding noise when turning is a worn front wheel bearing. What happens is that the weight of the car is shifted on to that wheel as you make the turn causing the worn bearing to make a grinding noise.

09 Jeep Patriot, metal grinding noise when turning left only


It is most likely the drivers side front wheel bearing. These are an easy fix for a mechanic, or if you mechanically inclined you could try it yourself (2 hour max job) and part runs around 50-70 bucks.

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.

2009 Pontiac G5 won't shut off. Key will not turn.


The pontiac G5 has a defect on some of them that need a new ignition switch. I just had to get mine replaced because mine did the exact same thing. If you remove the fuse it will not fix the problem!

When turning hard right or left a noise occurs not sure if it is awheel bearing or 4-wheel drive u-joint


Raise wehicle and use long handle prybar and try to lift the wheel straight up. If it is play then you have bad bearings. Please Note that wheel bearings will make grinding noise igf they are bad on any speed above 25Mph no matter that you turning your steering whel or not. Grinding noise from turning your steerin wheel it is comming from sterring pump. Check your fluid.

Vibration/Humming/Grinding noises when stopping or turning left.


when turning left vehicle distributes weight to right front wheel bearing causing load. since u describe a noise in right front while driving straight i would suspect failed right front wheel bearing. see if your noise changes/goes away while turning right that should tell u 4 sure

Grinding noise in the left front wheel while turning right - gets more noticeable the harder the turn is. Checked tire clearance - no problem, but it's not a rubbing noise but a grinding noise. No problem...


grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).
