Question about 2004 Ford F150
Right front wheel grinding, grateing noise, when i stop it clunks and sounds like it disengauges then works again for a little while, sounds like it trying to engage that wheel or something slipping, 4whl drive works fine
I agree with duane_wong on this one ( not like he was looking for my approval :) ), it sounds like a problem with the IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ) on that side.
Quick test, when you are in 4H ( or 4L ) does the noise still happen ?
I would say cracked vacuum line to the IWE, or a problem with the vacuum diaphragm in the IWE. You can test by having the motor running in park, and in 2H, and check the vacuum line at the IWE for vacuum. Make sure you test to the vacuum line, not the vent line ( ends in the engine compartment, not hooked to anything )
This is a block diagram of the IWE vacuum system
