I really need help!!

When I turn my steering wheel to the right my front end sounds like something is rubbing and creating a vibration, not metal grinding its something else. I have been up and down and all around someone if you have this issue please help me out.

I really hope it is some plastic panel misaligned, and touching the tire when in the turned position.

Here is a way to find your issue.. Grab a friend , wife , gf or boyfriend... have them in the car, turn the wheel and listen and more than likely see you problem..

Does it do it while moving, standing still, going over bumps, or driving on a smooth road? You need to provide more details. Also, is your "under engine" cover still secured in place or is it hanging down? I've seen those catch on the tire if allowed to just flop around while driving.

It does it when the wheels are straight. if I roll out of my driveway I stop put in drive and while the wheels are straight it clicks, it does it for a while when the car is cold after it warms up no issues.

Sounds to me like the power steering pump is going out.... or bearing or pulley is going bad... but I'm no mechanic but that's where I'd start looking...
