    Possibly the shield on the front discs, it is very close to the disc, and can touch the trackrod end which pushes it onto the disc.

    Or maybe needs the power steering fluid topping up?

    Hi,

    I've got a vectra GSI and funnily enough it's just developed this exact fault!!

    Started when i turned hard left and now i get a "scraping" sound constantly from the front right wheel. Happens even when brakes applied and they're new anyway.

    Just went to take wheel off and snapped my lock nut removal tool

    Need to order new one from dealers...

    Anything i can do with wheel on???

    Cheers

    Roddy

    If it is the shield its at the bottom half of the disc, attached near caliper.
    Take of the wheel and simply bend away from the disc.

    Mine was abot 2mm away from the disc when it was rubbing. Simply bent it away to about 10mm - no more rubbing!
