I have a 53 plate Ford Fusion 1.4 that has done 30,000 miles, recently when i am turning either left or right whilst accelerating there is what sounds like a metalic scraping sound for a second or two from my front off-side wheel. No vibration, just a metallic sound like metal moving on metal. This only happens when accelerating & turning and has only started in the last two weeks. The brake pads were changed last december and look to be ok and the steering doesn't seem to be affected so I thought it could be the bearings but have been told they shouldn't be a problem after only 30k miles. Any suggestions?
I would get the front coil springs checked these can sometimes snap
