noise when turning to the right

I have a Brava 1.4 12v and everytime i turn to the right the right wheel starts making a noise that sounds like some bearing is loose...Anyone know what this may be? I had a look to see if there was anything out of place, and all i saw was that there was some rubber washer which is very worn out and probably needs replacing. Also, whenever im doing more than 80km/h, the car starts to vibrate quite a bit...I think that this must be a problem with the wheels. any suggestions?

hope you can help me

thanks

get the wheels balanced, and check the nearside front wheel bearing for play or roughness.

Re: noise when turning to the right

you cant see the bearing, you can only jack the car up and rotate and wiggle the wheel to determine the condition of the bearing. maybe you should ask the VRT place to check the bearing as well.

balancing the wheels wont cost much, 10 for all 4 i would expect.
