FORD EXPLORER WHEEL PROBLEM

2004 Ford Explorer • 11,000 miles

When driving my Explorer, I have a noise from the left front that sounds like loud tire noise that begins when I turn the steering wheel to the right. The more I turn it, the louder the noise. However, when I turn the steering wheel to the left there is absolutely no sound. If I take my hands off the steering wheel, the truck does not pull to the right or left, it stay straight. There appears not to be any unusual ware of the front tires.

I jacked up the front end and attempted to wiggle the tire/wheel assembly... There is some minor movement of the tire/wheel and support components side to side... But not from top to bottom.

Hub bearing is failing. Have someone drive it to confirm.
