Wheel bearings?

Getting a clicking sound from the front driver side wheel in hard right turns. Seems to "click" faster/louder with cornering force. Anyone experience similar?

I took the wheel off and no obvious damage to any of the boots/etc in the wheel well.

Will send in to the dealer but just curious if anyone else has seen this.

Mine clicks lightly when I back out and turn but not all the time. Have not tried to listen on harder turns, windows usually up as to not hear the brake squeal.

There is a thread on this forum somewhere,
I had the same light clicking noise when turning the wheel.
I had BMW check for the wheel bearing etc. all was good.
Turned out to be after the break in service they did not tighten the stiffing plates bolts under the car enough. I will try to find the post.

Here it is read this

yikes!

the clicking was also an issue on the F85 X5Ms as well, but bearings were the issue there. BMW could never fully solve it. and some had to live with it

Just had my front left bearing replaced under warranty last week. Mine clicked when performing full locks to park/u-turn etc. I had the same issue on my M6 so i know exactly what it was.
