    Since I've bought my 2004 Grand Prix I've always noticed a clicking noise coming from one of the wheels. I noticed it only sounds when I turn right. Note: Break or not I can hear it when I turn right. Could this be the wheel bearing or the axle making that noise? Never had an issue until I thought to see if I can fix it. Any help or tips is greatly appreciated.

    Could be either (or both). If you jack the front end up off the ground so the tires are hanging, push/pull at the 12 and 6'oclock position on the tire and see if you have play. If so, then likely a wheel bearing.

    To me a clicking noise would say CV shaft. Usually a hub bearing is more of a rumble.

    when turning right... could be the starter. theres a spring that returns the starter gear back into the starter after starting. when the spring wears and/ or breaks, the starter gear slides out during right turns and lightly hits the flywheel. it can sound similar to a cv joint going out.
