If you take the left front wheel off and the outer casing of the four wheel drive hub and see missing bearings, then it is the wheel bearing. If the bad bearing is in the part that you removed, the hub locker, then it will require replacement. I am Wrestling with a bad wheel bearing & hub now myself, on a 93 Tracker 4wd. I need a place to buy parts. I can't find the hub anywhere. I found my new replacement wheel hub @ Autozone. $96.00 + tax.
Front grinding could be a bad wheel bearing or in the front axle assembly.
if its a front wheel drive vehicle then it could be the axels
A worn front wheel bearing could cause a Grand Cherokee Limited to make a grinding noise when you accelerate. There could also be a problem with one of the shafts.
The grinding noise in the front of a 1990 Dodge Caravan could be a cv joint. If it is, it probably only grinds when you take a sharp turn. There is one located on each side.

Either you tire is rubbing or if its a front wheel drive it could be you "CV" axle's... Other than that i don't know i hope that helps?
a bad brake caliper or pad.
have it checked you could have bent the axle and the noise would be the bearing
The grinding noise is the brakes pads proably the noise is in the front. The front brake pads are easy to replace and is a do it yourself sort of thing. My guess is your brake light is coming on because of this condition. I assume your brake light has been coming on for a little while now.
Front grinding is when you and your partner's sexual organs are grinding together. It is more risky than back to front grinding because in front grinding the male's genitals tend to go inside the female's vagina. It is basically having real sex with clothes on.
the noise could be coming from either a bad wheel bearing or something wrong in front axle.
i have a grinding noise on the front left wheel. i have taken the calipa off and i have one brake pad that is shot. could it be that or can it still be the bearing. how can i find out.
Could be the brakes are gone or it could be a hub and bearing assembly about to fall off the front of your car.
Most likely a bad axle
If its front wheel drive possibly an axle.
Have your brakes checked, rust or wear on brakes can cause grinding when turning.
The break pad.
Diod you check front brake pads
Bad wheel bearing or defective brake pads.
your front cv boot is tore. Replace this.
How do you change the front rotors on a 2004 Chevy tracker
had the same issue, an it was a wheel bearing
Trail Tough now has a Lock Right front locker available for the Geo Tracker/Suzuki Sidekick. Go to their Products then Tracker/Sidekick section. http://www.trailtough.com
most grinding noises that come from turning is usually a cv axle that needs to be replaced. Can also be a bad wheel bearing. If you hear the grinding when turning to the right then the left front wheel bearing is bad.
