More then likely you may have the beginnings of a worn CV Joint (Constant Vellocity) and/or a worn right front wheel bearing.
Best way to check it is on a lift run vehicle in gear and listen, if nothing is heard as there is no load on the Joints and bearings, then shut it off leaving it on the lift with the transmissionm in neutral and have someone manually rotate the right side wheel and putting tension upon the r/s axle shatf testing for play in the wheel bearing/hub and C.V area.
This repair can range from approx. $200.00- $450.00
modestly speaking.

2011 camry noise left front wheel when turning


Is it a "clicking" sound?
3 clicks per tire revolution?
It may be a worn out CV joint but on a 2011?

Is it a "grumble/rumble" sound?

Would you call it a "squeak"?

Can you describe the noise,please?

It could probably be your passenger CV Axle that needs to be replaced. They tend to make a loud/soft clicking noise if they go out.

Ticking noise in front end. Just like the person of the 02 issue


My first thought is a rock hung in the tire but surely you have checked for that? If you only hear it as the tire turns and it get faster as the tire tire turns faster then it has to be either the tire, brakes, or wheel bearing. Remove the wheel and throughly inspect everything. Look for a rock or some other object stuck in the tire or the brake system. You may have to remove the pads to find it. Inspect the brake slide pins and lubricate them with brake grease. Clean all rust and corrosion from the brake components with a wire brush and brake cleaner.

On crysler 2000 lhs i have a roaring soun coming from the right tire that sounds like its getting louder


Hi my name is Allen!

With roaring noises coming from the wheel area, we must be very careful in diagnosis because it could be the "Wheel Bearing" which is the most likely cause, but it also can be a tire itself.

Here is how to see which one it is, take the rear tire and put it on the front and put the front tire on the rear.

Next drive the vehicle, if the noise went to the rear of the vehicle and is no longer in the front, then you know its the tire. If the noise is still in the front then you know its the wheel bearing or the CV Joint, but if you do not hear a clicking noise when turning sharply both ways while moving then you most likely can rule out the CV Joints also. Then you know for sure without a doubt it is the wheel bearing.
