slight grinding when turning right!!


this is my first post so bit of a newbie to this!!!

bought a S reg spider about 2months ago and absolutely love it!! had a bit of money spent on it, discs, pads, suspension bush, cambelt etc all at simply alfas in stoubridge who were brilliant!!

now found out it needs a new MAF, which i have bought and will fit myself, after reading all the very imformative posts on here!

but today the car has made a slight grinding sound whenever i turn right, do u reckon this is a problem with the bearings on the driveshaft?! jst a guess and wud love some advice!!

thanx in advance

I know it sound a bit silly but have you checked that the wheel nuts are torqued properly. Might be worth taking the wheel off and putting it back on tightening it up slowly in a cross pattern? May not be it but it costs nothing to check.
Failing that grinding seems to normaly be the bearing as you have said "fair bit on here about replaceing"

As you have had work done on the Brakes check that the Disc Shield plate isn't slightly out of shape and rubbing when you turn, this happens pretty often.

Quick fix too, just bend it back to where it should be !
