Scratching/grinding when turning right

I have 2014 Focus se sedan with 45k miles. My car makes a scratching/grinding/scraping
noise every time I turn left. The sound comes form the right front tire area. The brakes are still relatively new. A visual inspection without lifting the car, I don't see the cv axle broken or spilling oil out. I don't see any visible scraping anywhere. Does anyone else have this problem?

Jack up the front of the car, turn the wheels all the way to the right, and rotate the wheel to pinpoint the noise . I would suspect a dust shield touching or CV axle...bearing would make a wooooing sound all the time not just when you turn right.

The noise manifests itself only when in turning so it would be hard to replicate that when the car is jacked up lol but I'll check the shield. I can't see the shield well until I jack it up and remove the tire.

Grinding when turning hard? I would be thinking CV joint.
Arco-Zakus and Metalcrack like this.

That's what I thought initially. I looked inside the wheel well for cv joint oil grease and I didn't see any. When I have time imma remove the tire and check everything.

A failed joint doesn't have to be a dry joint. I am not saying it is the cv, but it is a definite item on the list to check for play.
