Default SC400 makes a loud squeaking noise when I turn left?

Hello!

I have a SC400 and on Friday, the car began to make a long squeaking noise as I applied pressure to the right side of the vehicle.

Now, the vehicle doesn't make a noise when I brake. And when I turn right, the car does not make a noise.

This leads me to believe that the problematic symptom can be found somewhere along the passenger rear wheel.

I made a video and posted some pictures in hopes that I may receive some gracious help from the board members here. I'm assuming its the wheel bearing but I'm not too sure.

Thanks!

When you said "applied pressure" what do yo mean by that?
How low is your car?
The first thing I would do, is get your wheels up in the air and try to spin them to see where the noises coming from
That way your right there to diagnose the issue and eliminate other things!

applied pressure meaning if I turn left, the weight shifts to the right wheels. It only makes that noise when I turn left and it comes from the rear wheel.

Thanks Lexxium! I'm going to put it on a jack tomorrow and see what the problem is. The only problem that I see with this is that the wheel makes noise when theres weight on the wheel. On jackstands, wouldn't it take the weight off?

Nevertheless, this is my next stop. Thanks.. I'll let you guys know what it exactly is or if I'm still stumped...

Sounds like the wheel bearing is going out. You have time though, each wheel has two rows of bearings in each unit.
