Default Help - right turn scraping noise

I have a 2006 Scion XB with 16,000 miles on it. I am the original owner. Last year, I put new brakes on the car. Two months ago, the car was inspected at my dealership and passed with flying colors. The car has all standard manufacturer parts on it.

For the last week, when I turn right, I hear a loud scraping type of noise. The noise is not hear when turning left or straight ahead. It's only heard when turning right.

Can the forum members help me and give me some ideas as to what could be causing this noise and if it poses any danger?

Thank you for your help.

Check the backing plate on the front brake , look at the front right wheel bearing , rear left wheel bearing.

If the sound is a metal sound, it could very well be the rear bearing starting to go out. With only 16K miles on it, that should be under warranty easily.
