noise when turning right and braking

hey,

when i turn right and/or when i brake firmly there is a sort of grinding/rubbing sound coming from the front of the car, more from the right hand side i think.

does anybody know what this is? i think it is the front wheel bearings as when i checked them for movement the left wheel was a bit wobbly so i tightened the nut up as much as i should of (finger tight) and the wheel still wobbled and the noise remained.

please help!

nathan

Grinding and rubbing? Like metal on metal?

Check that your brake pads have not worn completely out.

I've got the same problem with my car, take your wheel off and check both sides of your brake disc, and see if there is any scratches on it..

im pretty sure the brakes are good, the ones on the left have heaps of meat on them. i havnt checked the right side but if the is heaps on the left then there will be heaps on the right.

im thinking of changing the entire front end wheel barings this weekend, hopefully that is the problem. before i do that i'll check to see if the rotors are warped.

the brakes won't necessarily be even, especially if a caliper has seized, or partly seized and has caused the pad to gradually wear down faster than the other..
