Could be brakes but that sounds like it's the ball joints on that side.

Loud noise sounds like fan


It's the cold air injection fan motor your hearing yes it is normal that you hear it. As for grinding noise your going to have to look under the car to see if anything is rubbing.

When I make a left turn only, and break, it sounds like something is rubbing or grinding. If I turn left without breaking, I don't hear anything. No noises when turning right or braking while driv


If the problem is as bad as it sounds, you may be close to parking it until fixed.
Normally, if you turn left, your are "loading" the right side, and visa-versa.
Think of it this way.
Picture a car going fast around a turn. The wheel on the inside of the turn might actually lift off of the ground, it is "unloaded".
With that thought in mind, look closely at the right front wheel. Start with the brake pads and /or rotor ( what the brake pads rub on to stop the car.)
Check the rotor inside and out. A good flashlight will do.
Pull the right front wheel and see if the pads are worn out or the rotor is no longer smooth, but "torn up" on the inside or the outside.
If the pads and the rotor is fine, next look at the wheel bearings.
This will be a bigger problem, probably a shop needs to check this out.

2005 Ford Explorer is making a grinding noise


I had some issues with my 2005 explorer left rear. It was making a creepy old door sound at low speeds and then a high pitched whisel at high speeds. That turned out to be a broken wheel bearing and had it replaced. Note each wheel has two wheel bearings. After that a new noise developed that sounded like metal scraping/ grinding metal. It end up being the brake dust cover got bent when they replaced the bearing and it was rubbing something, the fix for that was bending it so it didn't rub. I hope this helps.

Grinding or rubbing noise in left front wheel, mostly when braking . What do i look for?


Grinding is a sign on brakes in need of replacement. Your pads are worn through and now the metal backing plate of the pad is grinding up against the rotor. Replace the pads and rotors asap to prevent further damage.

Grinding noise when left turns are made


This could just be the abs, it does make a sound at times and really is nothing. But you may want to check outer tie rods and ball joints.

I have a 2001 ford focus SE Wagon, while i'm driving down little slopes or when I turn tight on left or right turns there is a rubbing, grinding noise


wheel bearings are worn out

when you take a left turn you should hear it on the right wich means that the right one is done...
if you take a right curve you should hear it on the left..,

now you should be able to distinguish if the sound is coming from the front or the rear just by ear...

but i would say that if you're driving downhill and you hear the sound it means that the front ones are done because most of the weight of the car is transferred to the front bearings...

Grinding noise in the left front wheel while turning right - gets more noticeable the harder the turn is. Checked tire clearance - no problem, but it's not a rubbing noise but a grinding noise. No problem...


grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).
