help 07 tundra scraping or grinding noise

ok

my tundra makes a scraping/grinding noise only when i turn the wheel to the left. i checked the front end pulled tires off checked drive shaft checked muffler/exhaust to see if it was loose and hitting something checked brakes,rotors, and rotor dust shields and ball joints and i have no idea what is making the noise. sounds like its coming from passenger side front

anyone have an idea or know what it could be ???? wheel bearing ??

Mine was doing something similar but driver front side. Ended up being a broken wheel stud

lol....I thought i was the only one with this problem. It's a cover around the rotor that's rubbing. I can't remember if it's hitting the axle or not. American Tire bent it back for me and it hasn't made the noise since. And yes, it's only during left turns......weird. I'll post some pics later, so you can do it yourself and save $70.

I had the same thing. Took it tot he dealer, they couldn't figure it out. The one day while washing the tundra and noticed the the wheel well protector had bent in and was making contact when i turned left. I pushed it back into shape, problem solved.....

A couple inches below the bolt in the middle of the picture is where the cover makes contact with the axle, causing the grinding noise that sounds like you need new brakes. The stupid noise forced me to prematurely replace my brake pads. Hope this helps!

holy shit, this might be exactly what the issue im having is, i just put an lro level kit on my crewmax last week and noticed this goofy kind of rubbing noise every once in a while when i turn full lock, sometimes it happens full right, sometimes full left.

I believe the contact was directly below bolt number 1. The cover wraps all the way around and comes close to the axle in many places, so you may have to bend it in a different location. It's very flexible and you can do it by hand. You'll see when you get under there.
