While driving from time to time( just in the last week ) my driver side wheel makes a grinding metallic sound. If the wheel is still making the sound when I come to a stop there is a continual spinning grinding sound then it makes a clunk. Like when something is spinning then comes to an full stop.
My car has 69000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
An issue like this is possibly related to: brake system/rotor faults, wheel bearing failure, and/or axle failure. If and once those categories of failure are ruled out, then of course other components such as the differential and transmission would be considered. If you request a vehicle noise diagnostic, the responding certified mechanic will pinpoint the origin of the noise and get this issue taken care of for you.
