My first thought is that the wheel bearing is failing....replace it soon! The other idea is the front half shaft CV Joint is failing. ( the front wheel shaft on the side the noise comes from)

You don't need the wheel to knock out the guy in the sombrero.

low air pressure in your tires. fill 'em up!

two wheel drives have two turning wheels. Four wheel drives have four turning wheels, meaning that it has twice the turning power of a two wheel drive.

If a car makes noise when turning the tie rod can be worn. Tie rods allow a vehicle to turn, when they fail the steering wheel will knock and rattle making all kinds of noises.

Usually it's a wheel balance issue, but it can also be worn steering components, a bent wheel, a faulty tire or a bad CV joint.

try rocking/turning the wheel while turning the key.

Check Tie rod end Check wheel bearing (CV) Worn Tire?

Turning the steering wheel farthest left or right for a few seconds will cause a loud squealing.

Low steering fluid can cause a steering wheel to whine when turning. A worn steering belt can also cause a steering wheel to whine when a car is being turned.

A Geo Metro is a front wheel drive vehicle. When a squealing noise occurs when the wheel is turning, it can be an indication of damage to the CV joints.

Bad power steering belt or pump and low fluid level are the most likely causes

A loose or worn belt. Also check the power steering fluid.

Going to guess that this is a FWD and noise is from front and no noise while going straight?? Possible outer CV joint or loose front end part

it could be a wheel bearing that is bad or it could also be busted belts inside a tire

The cause of the squealing sound is because you are turning the steering wheel completely to the right or left

Tire out of balance, bent wheel, or defective wheel bearing are common causes.Tire out of balance, bent wheel, or defective wheel bearing are common causes.

slight knock when turning can be caused by a loose wheel bearing,worn ball joints,or ball joints that need grease,can also be caused by a worn bearing in side the steering column,or worn out shock absorber.
