Question 02 Svtf

I've got a 02 svtf with 27,000 miles on it. no problems so far, except that there is a grinding noise coming from the passenger side front wheel. i think the axel is grinding but not sure why. the boot is not ripped and everything seems to be in order. any ideas??

It sounds like you are giving the classic description of a bad wheel bearing.

Do you still have warranty on your car?

Yep that sounds like a wheel bearing. If you're out of warranty they're not very difficult to change out. If you don't have a press you can heat up the hub in an oven and tap out the bearing with punch. Most times the bearing will just drop into the hub if it's still warm.
