There are several things that could be causing this noise to come from your front wheel well. You could have a faulty wheel bearing, a brake could be dragging, or a hub is rubbing.
2 common causes for fwd front left wheel to make groaning noises. First it may be worn disc pads rubbing on the disc; thin disc etc Or more likely one or both axle bearings are lacking lubricant and starting to collapse
bearings old tires shock observers steering wheel
You might possibly have a bent drive shaft, or if you have oversized tires they could be rubbing against the wheel wells
You may not have enough steering fluid?
your tires could be to wide or to tall, or your suspension could be low or shot. :)

Where do I put Anti freeze in my escort ?
Front wheel drive ( 2 wheel )
Possibly the wheel bearing, if it makes a whiring noise when you accel. Or cv-axel, if it sounds like its grinding.
Steering wheel noises can be caused by low power steering fluid. A loose or worn belt or suspension problems can also cause a steering wheel to make noises when turned.
The only way to find out is to take it to a mechanic who has an engine analyzer. The rubbing could be caused by a loose mudshield (or a dozen other things). For rubbing sounds, you might want to check the clearance inside the wheel wells when fully turned to the right. (Possible tire contact with either front fender.) Your mechanic can check for noises from the power steering as well.
There could be a few things that can cause this humming sound. It could be the wheel bearings rubbing, it could be the gears rubbing, it could even be coming from the engine pistons.?æ
no , it's front wheel drive
sorry a escort mk6 1800 diesal...cheers
on the 89 ford escort it should be on right hand wheel well.
Most times, the squeaking and rubbing noises are caused by brake pad wear, but you say the brakes are fine. Otherwise, if by constant rotation speed you mean the squeaking/rubbing noise is present even when the brakes are not applied, you might want to get the wheel bearing inspected
You can tell when your wheel bearings need replacing is when they are making unusual noises. For example: squealing, groaning, chirping or cracking noises. If this happens, get it checked out right away.
On the steering wheel :)
