Yesterday and today a noise seems to be coming from the passenger side front wheel when I am turning corners. It sounds like it is scrapping or grinding on something. It doesn’t happen with every turn, but is quite loud and happens often. I looked at the wheel and cannot see anything obvious what would obstruct the wheel or contribute to the sound. any ideas (in girl terms!!!) what it could be?i only had an mot last week, so seems odd!thanks in advance.
