Did something cause the inner fender to drop?
I would not call rubber on plastic grinding, but i had it happen far too often lifting vehicles and know that distinct sound.
Good thing is you can fix it with a simple razor knife.
What's the chance that my grinding noise is the axel disconnect and not the bearing?
When my sister owned the vehicle, she loaned it to her son and he hit something. The front end has cracked plastic here and there. The bumper cover and inner fenders are held in place with zip ties and a miss-mash of bolts from my father's coffee can stash. I'm not too worried about it.
I decided to buy a new bearing and see if that fixes the grinding noise. I didn't want a Chinese part but that's what they sent me.
