Do you get it when turning or driving straight?

I would guess a wheel bearing or maybe dragging brakes or dust shield.

Check for obvious stuff like the plastic liners dragging on the tire or on the ground.

If it does it at low speed, stand outside and have someone drive the car around you. This should let you hear the location of the noise.

Plastic liners always get loose on my corolla. Especially after winter. You just need some push clips if thats the case. If thats not the issue, could be a stuck caliper or if louder as car increases speed could be wheel bearing.

Only happens when I make hard right turn from stop or accelerating. I put shop on notice that whatever they find wrong; I am NOT paying as they said my car passed PA Safety Inspection. I have a State Cop friend I'll bring to shop with me smile

This s$&/@ shouldn't happen PERIOD as its probably safety related and the shop should have informed me about this. Guy that inspected my car didn't even test drive my car. WTH?!?!

Don't be unreasonable. There are many issues that can cause a "rubbing sound" that are either not safety-related, or are not included on the state safety-inspection checklist.

Are you saying a state inspector drove your car? Is this the usual sop?

If that is right and you cannot be riding with them then that’s messed up. Here we have emissions checks but no safety inspection as I know of.

Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

I once had a small tree limb get stuck under the front and rubbed something when i turned. Just to satisfy yourself, you should a least get it up on ramps and have a look around.

I'd check for a dust/heat shield issue. One time I had caliper bolts come loose once and the caliper was rubbing on the rim, I didn't figure that out quick enough and it rubbed through the rim. Worth checking out.
My Liberty has a pretty bad rubbing noise....it's a status symbol because that means the tires are big. smile
