Weird Noise Around Driver’s Side Front Wheel
If you have front wheel noise when driving, and it’s constant, it’s probably one of two things: a bad wheel bearing or worn brakes. Brake pads have “indicators,” small metal tabs that stick out slightly past the pad backing. When the pads wear down, these pads rub against the rotor, creating a squealing noise. You may notice this noise more on the driver’s side because you’re closer to it. If it’s a wheel bearing, those noise will be more of a growl or whine. Try getting your car up to speed and lightly steer it left and right. If it’s the bearing, the noise will change as the vehicle weight moves back and forth.
