This is most likely your left wheel scraping against the wheel well. Your Acura may be out of alignment. You want to get that checked out soon because it will eventually rub your left tire raw.


I did just out new brakes on it the other day and it didn't do these before. But I did not mess with anything else.


I looked at that today and my wheel clearance is ok in the wheel hub


It's a high pitch sound

Same thing is happening with mine! Only when I turn left. What was the issue?
