If a car is making a grinding noise in the right back wheel, it could be a sign that a wheel bearing is failing. It is necessary to take the car to a qualified mechanic for repair.

If its making a horrible grinding noise, it could be the bearing!

have it checked you could have bent the axle and the noise would be the bearing

if its when you are breaking it is possible it could be a rotor if you hear like a roaring or grinding noise coming from that side also could be a wheel bearing

97 grand am rubbing/grinding noise from right front that is not wheelbearing or brakes

Are the breaks worn or have they been recently replaced and could need new rotor. check your wheel bearing as well. turning left puts more stress on the right side of the vehicle, this could cause the grinding noise.

Sounds like it might be time to replace the front struts. They're like shock absorders, just more expensive. If the noise gets worse when you take a right hand turn, it could be the CV joint too.

I have a 1992 Chevy berretta 3.1 V6 and when it is in park and reverse and neutral it sounds like there is a grinding noise right below the shifter I know that the linkage needs adjusting any ideas

Could be the Springs doing that. If it's a grinding noise, then it's the wheel bearings.

For sure your cv joint is bad, and that can get expensive, my subaru has that problem right now, was quoted at least $500 to fix because it messes with the alignment and tire wear and other wear. expensive. I now have a 90 ford escort, with a dead battery at the moment. The grinding noise could be a wheel bearing. also replaced those before.

Your CV joints could be going bad. Check to see if your CV boots are cut or opened to the elements. If so, your joints may need to be replaced. Before your spend money have a mechanic verify your complaint.

It makes a horrible grinding noise as the starter motor turns over, but doesn't do any damage (well I hope it doesn't).

Underinflated/worn tire. Could possibly be a bad wheel bearing. Worn out wheel bearing

Best to get merchanical attention very soon. Never a good idea to drive a car making silly noises.

Tie-Rod End may be going out. I'm thinking front wheel bearing.

Could be bad pulley in accessory belt system if you have power steering, something contacting the rotor on that side or a failing wheel bearing.

Check the brakes for worn pads. The pad backer scraping the rotor is the most common cause of this type of noise.

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.
