S60 grinding noise from front wheels when going over bumps

Post by Gregwales »

Hi all need your help plz

I bought a s60 2002 couple weeks ago.
When going over bumps or going around roundabouts at speed there is a grinding noise coming from the front wheels (passenger side worse)
I've put spacers in to stop it from grinding at full lock and this has worked but still grinding in bumps etc

It appears to be worse with passengers in the car.

Cymru am byth!!

Welcome....possibilities here are

Loose parts in strut and sway bar links..get car up on lift and inspect for looseness
Wheel bearing...if the noise comes and goes as you turn one way over another this is very likely it. Let's see, you go around roundabouts counterclockwise, and passenger side is left. That fits a left front wheel bearing failure perfectly.
Driveshafts ..usually make clicks and cracks rather than grinding
Differential...very unlikely, these are strong units
