    Good morning everyone! I have recently have been experiencing a grinding noise as I reverse out of my drive way. It only happens when I reverse turning my wheel to the right. It has a grinding sound and sounds pretty bad, but I have no clue what it could be. So far it sounds like it's coming from the front left driver side.

    Also, it makes the same grinding noise when I break too hard, usually when im going down hill.

    Any help and input is greatly appreciated. Thanks Explorer Fam!

    i have the same problem, and have been told it is the wheel hub assembly. go to your local auto parts store and pick up a new one ($100-150) and its pretty easy to do by yourself ive been told. look it up theres a great write up on it
