    possible causes of grinding noise at low speeeds

    Noise is coming from drivers side wheel.

    I have a bad grinding sound when the car pulls off from a stand still, and is worse when turning left rather than turning right. It is a very metalic sound and feels as though there is movement as well (IE feels jerky initailly). Once I am driving it seems to go but that could just be because I can not here it over the engine/exhasut noise.

    Any ideas on possible issues?

    Get it up on some stands and give it a wiggle about ( sounds wrong ) see if there is any play or if the calipers are binding at all?

    could be bearing, or maybe the little shield plate behind the brake disc has bent into the disc itself

    I had that exact same issue Mat, it was the thin metal disc behind the brake disc that was bent and hitting against the brake disc when turning..

    Is it more of a dry grinding noise or squeaky metallic noise?
