Own 1999 Buick LeSabre (w/ ABS) - 76,000 miles -- always had regular maintenance. Started making a loud noise like a fan blade was hitting metal whenever turned right; sound appeared to come from left front wheel. Had noise checked at both Buick dealer and regular mechanic (we have used both). Neither could pinpoint problem. Mechanic unhooked fan and still made same noise -- thought possible that motor mounts (which appeared to need to be replaced) were bad. Had new factory mounts installed -- did not solve problem. The noise sounds exactly like the noise a fan blade would make hitting metal and only happens when we turn left. They have checked wheels, etc. And cannot find source of noise. This does not affect the driving of the vehicle; just driving us nuts every time we turn right. Also, not knowing if it is something that could be dangerous driving. Any suggestions would really be appreciated.
