    2019 freightliner sprinter front driver wheel intermittently grinds and feels like it’s sticking quickly when I’m on the highway and a semi passes and it happens more when it’s windy. Makes the van wobble. (It is top heavy, thermo king.) Has anyone else had this problem of any idea what it could be? TIA

    Sounds like a wheel bearing. I would get it checked out ASAP! I wouldn't drive it. You can check it yourself. Jack up the wheel off of the ground and check if there is side to side movement
     
    MicCak Thanks this.
