Re: grinding coming from the left front tire area
It sounds like a wheel bearing. if its grinding jack up the front end and see if the wheel is loose and also leave the car in nutral and hold the coil spring on the strut and spin the wheel if that bearing is bad you will feel the roughness in the spring. on a hyundai i would recomend checking all four wheels because this is a common problem.

most likely a front hub [wheel bearing ]going bad but jack up front side that is causing problem and try to move tire in and out with hands at top and bottom of tire and listen and feel for noise or excess movement it to much movement remove tire an check the upper and lower ball joints as well as the shock/strut but check brakes grinding can also mean pads are metal to rotor but usually grinding and thumping is related to a bad hub
It sounds like the brake pads are metal to metal, when you turn the flexing of the wheel makes them touch the rotor and grind. This can rarely be caused by a badly worn wheel bearing as well, have both brakes and wheel bearing inspected.
Sounds like you are leaking brake fluid. The grinding sound may be from the brake pad not disengaing from the rotor because of low brake fluid pressure. Have this checked immediatley you may loose all brake function!!
