My front wheel is loose and makes a crunching noise when I make a right turn.

(1998 Volkswagen Cabrio)
in Las Vegas, NV on March 29, 2010
Right wheel makes a crunching noise when I make a right turn. Lifted car wheel off ground and wheel is loose. Could it be the bearings failing, CV joints or axel/half shaft?

If everything is tight in the front wheel and suspension, then the bearing may be bad. I would verify everything is tight first though.

i i had the same problem on my toyota and thought it was bearings but the problem was my inner and outer bushings in my knuckle. they are made to wear down so the half shaft doesnt. grab the half shaft and shake it if its sloppy its probably bushings if its tight and wheel is sloppy then its probably bearings
