    1997 Subaru Outback wagon. ~80K.

    When I turn right sharply at any speed over 10 mph, I hear a rubbing or
    scraping kind of noise from the left rear wheel area. When I straighten
    out, the noise disappears.

    Have not noticed same when turning left.

    Visual inspection reveals nothing out of the ordinary.

    Ideas? Thanks in advance....

    Most likely the brake pads rubbing, how much pad do you have left? If that
    is 80k miles then it is time for a brake job (skim disks and new pads front
    and rear). Could also be a bearing. Get the runout checked when you do the
    brakes.

    Cheers.

    Make sure you don't have a broken spring, there was a recall on this and
    sometimes the broken spring would rub on a tire....bad enough to cause a
    blow out. TG
