Hello I'm Paula. I have a 2004 Mazda 3 hatchback. I love my car, but its a pain in the ass lately. The passenger side wheel is making a god awful grinding kinda noise. Ive changed out just about everything and i still cant fix it.
Then today my passenger side window stops working.
Any advice would be amazing on what the issues could be.

I've changed the struts tie rod ends sway links axles it's got new brakes brand new tires I've had the bearings checked and was told that it's not the bearings. It doesn't more so when you speed up. Emma window mysteriously started working again this morning
