My Ride: 2002 325xi
Rubbing or worn out when I turn right

2002 manual 325xi and there's no noise at all and not when I'm going left/acc/dec or sharp turns but I hear a hum or a rubbing noise. If I had to guess I would say something is worn out but I'm unsure and it's only when I go around a bend and have to turn the steering wheel right -also sounds like the right side of the car as well I'm don't think it would be the brakes but maybe an axle?

Have you checked out the left side ? Taken the tire off and looked at these things? Could be a wheel bearing starting to go. Is it a noticeable hum that gets louder as you get up to speed or does it stay the same regardless of speed?
