Default 2007 XKR Coupe Grinding Noise Question

Hello! Brand new to the forums - was wondering if anyone had any experience with this type of noise.

There seems to be a grinding noise whenever I turn the car to the right. Sounds like its coming from the left front but I could be wrong.

It's not incredibly loud, but seems like its progressively getting worse.

Took it to the jag dealership and they told me that it was because I had low breaks. -- This doesn't make sense to me, as it makes this noise when I'm not braking.

Any help?

More likely the wheel bearing.
Had mine replaced on front right today. I could hear noise when driving at any speed, with windows down I could hear the metallic grinding sound outside the car. When turning while stationary, I could hear the crunch of broken bearing pieces --- uuurgggh!

Thanks for the response.

How much did it cost you to swap out the wheel bearing?

I'm changing my brakes today, so if that doesn't fix it I'll have to look into possibly changing the wheel bearing as well.

I paid about $700 for the wheel bearing replacement.
The whole hub has to be replaced.
You can buy replacement hubs on EBAY for low prices, but no guarantee where they really come from, so I went for my Indy mechanic and his supplier after we negotiated price.
Turned out great - no more noises :-)

Rock Auto, $75 or less for Moog parts. Not a horrible job and it should cost no where near $700.

Easiest way to test a bearing which will catch 90% of bearing failure (meaning sometimes there's no wobble but the bearing is still going out.) Don't throw money at this yet. Jack up the wheel off the ground, just enough to easily grab the tire at the bottom. Put your hands on the tire @ 12 and 6 o'clock and see if you can "wobble the wheel". There should be no play. None. If there is, your bering is failing. If you can change a tire, you can do this test for $0 cost.

Here's a quick video, which also let's you check tie rod and ball joints too.
