If you have a rubbing noise on the BRAKES then its most likely the pads worn out and touching the metal backing plate ,other wise it could be the wheel bearing worn or coming loose but the CV Joint if worn will make a clanking noise when turned on full lock either Left or Right.
So jack it up at the front and check the wheel bearings and turn the wheel to see if the noise is there as it will be a metal to metal noise ,but if pads are good then it will just be a soft rubbing noise.

I'm getting a sprocket clicking noise from one of the front wheels when I turn right and applying the brakes


Sounds like a worn outer CV joint. But that would click during turns even without the brakes. Can you verify that?

If it only happens when braking, could be a brake part, like the backing plate rubbing something.

Grinding sound when turning


if its a grinding/knocking type sound then it could be the cv joint gone bad.the side that makes the noise when you are loading during turning(turning left you are loading the right cv joint and vise versa)that is the side the bad joint is on.it will happen whether or not your foot is on the brake.if the noise happens as strickly a grinding noise like when brakes are metal to metal when applying the brakes then it could be brakes need replacing.also have seen were if the inner fender is loose or oversize tire is on it can rub sounding like grinding.

I think the front-right CV joint may be going out on my 2003 Solara SLE (it makes a funny noise when I turn the car while I am driving, but not from a complete stop). What would be the least expensive...


If it is the CV joint (and it does sound like it is), the least expensive option will be to replace the CV joint. This is really the only solution available, but the popping or funny noises can also indicate other worn parts such as struts, shocks, tire rod ends, and even the rack and pinion in your steering system. I would check all of this before going through the aggravation of replacing the CV joint.

Car noise while driving. Replaced the tires. What else could cause the noise?


there are several things that the noise could be, what sort of vehicle is it and where is the noise coming from and what does it sound like, if its a grinding or screeching noise it will be in the braking system, either worn discs or brake pads, if its a loud cludding when you go over bumps it could be the bushes on the sway bars, any knocking noises could be from suspension, cv joints, rubbing from tyres. loud air noises will be exhaust leak, hopes this helps you define the noise a little more, i can help more with more details, cheers.

Grinding noise front end.


I say it's the CV joints. You have to jack up under the lower A-Arm, to take the spring pressure off of it, to check them.

(Use jack stands, and wheel chocks behind the rear tires. Emergency brake On. Work on a hard level surface. Be SAFE! Trucks can be replaced, YOU cannot!)
