    Grinding noise when steering to the right

    We started getting vibration and grinding noise when turning to the right. I assumed it was the rotors. Put on new rotors and pads. Didn't fix the issue. The sound is coming from the front driver's side. Any ideas?

    Thx,
    -PJ

    Our Mazda service guy suspects it's a wheel bearing issue. I'll know on Monday if that's the issue.

    Likely it is the bearing. Rotor and pad usually does not make noises when you turn it left/right.
    Bearing, however, is stressed side-way when doing that.

    Yep, it was the bearing. Another CX-9 was also getting a bearing replaced.

    I am having an issue with grinding during left turns. Just curious, how many miles were on your bearings? Im at 55K.
