    Clicking/Chirping coming from passenger front wheel..

    I gotta say, this car never ceases to keep me on my toes lol...

    Latest saga is a chirping that started today from the front right wheel.. I pulled out of my spot at work, hard left immediately right over a speed bump. Heard a grinding sound from the front right and now after I hit about 45-50 km/h it starts to click/chirp, consistent with speed. My thought is a wheel bearing, but I'm no expert. Any thoughts? How hard are these to do, and how long should it/would it take me to do in the driveway tomorrow?

    Re: Clicking/Chirping coming from passenger front wheel..

    After more research, I'm assuming that if it was a bearing I'd be hearing a constant groan as opposed to a chirp. Which leads me to believe it's rotating assembly related, like a bent heat shield or something. One thing I did figure out though is that the noise doesn't go away when I apply the brakes, so I doubt it's a loose bad or an issue with the actual braking system. Could be a rock stuck in there (apparently it'll sound like that).. who knows.. Here's hoping someone here's experienced it and can point me in the right direction.

    Your hearing noise from that area? It is not time to hesitate and debate the issue, it is time to act. Pull the wheel off and make an inspection. Ever see smoke from that side? If you have, you could have welded the bearing race to the spindle. Then it gets expensive. Better to find it is something simple, or wait and find it has gone too long and too far.
