Hi, this could be one of several things:
1, check brake pads on front have not wore down to the metal if the have they need replacing.
2. if brakes are good and have loads of pad left on them then you need to get the wheel bearing checked this would need jacking up off floor and see if their is any play or movement when you wiggle the wheel about with your hands.

The chances are if the break pads are both good either side at the front then its going to be the wheel bearing.

If the brake pads are worn down one side more than the other then the brake caliper could be stuck on causing the noise but if the pads have even wear then it all points to the wheel bearing.

Its best you get a pro from a garage to look at it as it can be dangerous if the wheel bearing collapses completely then this could cause the wheel to fall off and at high speed could be a real nasty crash.
Even at low speed if the wheel falls off your looking at thousands of pounds or dollars to fix where as a wheel bearing can be brought for next to nothing and wouldnt cost to much to replace.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

It sounds like you have a wheel bearing going out. Get it replaced before it tears your spindle up.

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: Front drive noise when turning left/right

You need new drive shaft assemblies (AKA halfshafts) which include both inner and outer CV joints and shafts. And although it's normal for only the passenger side wheel to spin in forward gear when in snow or mud, the drivers side should spin when the wheels are in the air. You either have a sticking brake caliper or bad wheel bearing on the drivers side. With 300K on your Hyundai the cost of the repair is more than the car is worth. Sell it for parts and buy a new car.

Two things maybe your problem:1 .Front axle actuator to engage 4wd is not releasing. 2. Front axle u-joint needs replacing. Lift car on jacks with front end off ground. Then spin tires by hand as fast as you can and see if you hear the noise and where it is coming from ( spin in both directions).

Testimonial: "Thank you! It was the actuator that was causing the problem."

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.

Grinding front passenger wheel when turning right


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).
This can also be caused by worn or damaged central velocity joints if the vehicle is front wheel or four wheel drive.

Stuck with this problem


The front axle isnt disengaging completely. You need to probably replace the vaccum solinoid located right above your distributor on the firewall. To test you simply disconnect the two vaccum lines and splice them together. Then turn the 4wd on and see if all is normal.

Noise when in 4 x 4


Bad news... It sounds like you have a broken/stripped axle. I would start at the wheel and start disassembling from the outside in. It may just be a stripped spline in the spindle.

Popping and grinding noise coming from the right front tire.


it depends if you have 2WD or 4WD, probably either your CV joints, or your wheel bearing, also have your upper and lower ball joints looked at, durangos are bad for those going out. 4WD could have additional problems, like transfer case, front axle bent, and other 4WD probs. i had a similar problem and it was my wheel bearing. buy it offline, not at the parts store, it saved me $140. compared to O'riely Auto Parts.
