Hmmm Front driver side wheel noise

Hi all

I'm driving myself mad about my GT Blackline..

It takes a while to start (a good few miles) but then it sounds as though there's a scraping, whistling noise. If the steering wheel was a clock face then at 12 its often OK but then at 12.30 it will start to make the noise. Its usually when I turn slightly rather than a tight turn so by 1 or 2 on the clock face it goes away.

On rare occasions it can be when turning slightly to the left also. I did wonder if it may be something to do with the brakes not fully releasing as when I brake the noise goes away..

Last year for the MOT I had a top arm ball joint replaced for excessive play on the near side so wondered if it may be the offside one of these.

It has been getting worse but I just didn't have the money to get it looked at recent due to a new clutch, fly wheel and master cylinder.

Any help shall be greatly appreciated!

Jack up the car at that wheel, make sure handbrake is on and out of gear, then rotate the wheel by hand and see what you find. Whats the noise like ?
