Could be a CV joint loosing grease and starting to run dry (not bone dry). When you turn left the sound should come from the right wheel since body weight transfers to that wheel. Same goes with turning right, sound should come from the left. Raise the car up and check if you have leaking CV boots.

SOURCE: noise while turning when accelerating

Probably a, or both front CV (constantly variable) joints in the front half-shafts (the driveshafts that run from your transmission to both your front wheels) are going bad. Not a too uncommon problem. They run about 150-160$ Canadian dollars a piece for remanufactured front shafts (from NAPA Auto Parts). Not too sure about labour cost, could be a few hundred dollars.

98% sure you have an axle problem. Might be wheel bearings depending on the sound. Bad axles will make a loud clicking noise, (click click click in rapid succession, espically while turning or under accleration) while wheel bearings will make a growling sounds.

It sounds like a wheel bearing is going bad. They are easy to change. If you have a place to jack the vehicle up. Try spinning the front wheels. You should hear a scraping noise as the wheel turns.Also replace both sides at the same time,as the otherside is not far behind.

Weird noise when turning my wheel


Area of interest...power steering pump and power steering pump belt. Check fluid level in the pump.
Check belt tension.
One of those "fixes" should stop the weird noise.

Noise coming from front of car


It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps
