Question about 1997 Ford Aspire
It stops grinding when i turn right????
When you turn you usually put more pressure on the opposite side, the sealed bearing (one per side) usually have a inner and outer race and a grinding sound can be heard when a load is put on them.Traveling straight there is no load on the bearing enough to cause a noise.the load would normaly be on the right side (depending on speed, rate of turn and angle of car ie: on flat road, ingrade to the left or right) but I have seen it be the left bearing making the noise because of the design of the sealed bearing. One other thing may cause a grinding sound is the outer cv joints this ususlly happens when turning hard one way, and may be heard even when traveling straight when accelerating or deaccelerating. If you are convinced it is a bearing it is best to replace both if there are many miles on the car.
