Spinning/Grinding on front right of 2000 Taurus - any ideas?

Hey Guys,

About a month ago my car was only doing this about 10% of the time so it was tough for my mechanic to know if it was fixed. Now it's like 80% of the time. It's like a grinding metal noise. When I'm driving it's spinning grinding type of noise.

I've been to the mechanic 3 times. The first time, they said it was my ball joint. They repaired that. When it started doing the same thing the next day, I took it back and they said it was the wheel bearing and they repaired that and charged me nothing, saying they should have caught it.

A day later, I realized it still wasn't fixed. I took a video and posted today of what it sounds like. I'm taking it back to the mechanic tomorrow.

Any ideas what you think this might be?

Sounds like brake rotor to me, but I figure somone would catch that by now.

Good call guys. Turns out there was a break pad that was hanging down and grinding against the rotors causing the noise. It's now been fine for 3 days since I got the car back. The mechanic was very apologetic and was upset he didn't catch it the first 2 visits.

Glad it got sorted out!

I know I had some issues with a bent brake backing plate that caused some noise on more than one occasion...off roading has it's perks.
