The Problem:

hi, today on way home from work, my car developed a squeak sounds abit like a metallic grinding, it get a bit louder when i turn left so im guessing the front right is the problem. sounds like a bearing but the bearing aint even a year old yet. any ideas wot to look for b4 i look at the bearing?? the speed of the sound increases wiv speed and visa versa and starts at low speed but at higher speeds is quiet.

cheers

Suggested Solution

You are right in your diagnosis that turning left put,s a load on the right hand bearing and if you can see no other problem such as backplate touching or stone trapped then as suggested probably a bearing.
