Q: Grinding noise low speed

asked by on

Grinding noise low speed

This noise, if it increases with road speed, is quite likely a worn front wheel bearing. It may be from one side or both sides. If you turn left while moving, and the noise increases (let’s say on a freeway on-ramp), it is the right front wheel bearing that is bad, and vice versa for a right turn (bad left front wheel bearing). To have this repaired, consider having a qualified professional from YourMechanic replace the wheel bearing(s) at your home or office.
