Customer Question

hi I have a 2001 530d 148k when i turn left only there is a loud scraping noise from my right front it feels like its actually rubbing or scraping on the steering column. I have just put a brand new wheel bearing hub on this location and if anything it seems a bit worse.

It appears that the noise only starts once the wheel bearing is warm

a cold bearing is quiet.

I can find nothing rubbing. what do you think
