My car has a manual transmission.
This is most likely a wheel bearing or brake problem. When brake pads drag against the brake rotors, this can cause the vehicle to pull to one side or the other depending on which rotor is being dragged. Additionally, if a wheel bearing is bad, this can also cause the same effect which will also make the noise you are describing. Since the car is unsafe to drive, consider YourMechanic, as one of our mobile experts can come to your home to diagnose your steering pull and help you fix it accordingly.
