Chirping noise from front when turning

Hi all,

My 2011 Versa has developed a chirping noise. It seems louder than before, and is only there when turning the car right. I do plan on asking the mechanic about it during the next oil change (soon) but just wanted to get an idea beforehand if anyone experienced something similar. Was thinking it could be the wheel bearing. Thanks for your help.

It sounds more like a bad CV joint/axle, although I would describe that noise as more of a click sound vs. a chirp.
In my experience, a bad wheel bearing is more of a whine noise.
I might start with a visual inspection of the CV joints, axles and boots (over the CV joints), then jack up the car and check for play in the wheel bearings and spin the wheels listening for noise.
