    HELP!!! Grinding noise from the front right!

    Please help, I have a grinding noise coming from the front right wheel (I think)
    It only makes the noise when I'm steering left or right (more on the right)
    and going slow (2-5mph) I had the wheel of yesterday and had a look at the
    obvous stuff, bushes, arms etc but can't see anything, anyone got any ideas?

    If not it will have to be Vauxhall tomorrow morning!

    Cheers for your help in advance

    it sounds simple but have you checked the pads cos mine made a horrible grinding noise when they wore down.

    Is what K70 RAF saying correct? Or could it be the brake pads?

    Symptoms...
    - Grinding/Squeeking noise when turning right
    - Coming from the front right wheel area
    - Only does it when going 2-5mph braking or not braking

    Going to Vauxhall at half 4 so if anyone can help, please do.

    I'd say wheel bearing if you're getting squeaking when turning. Could also be a dry CV joint, but the squeaking confirms it for me.
