Hi. You should probably check the front wheel bearings. They are known for going bad and cause the wheel to be loose.

Expert:  EricFromCT replied 2 years ago.

Also while the wheel bearings are being checked, the entire front end should be checked, such as the sway bar links, and the upper and lower ball joints.

Thank you for viewing my response. Have you had the front end of your Explorer checked out yet? Let me know if you have more questions and please rate my service. Thanks.

Hello, from what you describe sounds like a brake pad loose in the caliper or caliper loose mounting, have you had the vehicle inspected yet? will you do the work yourself? let me know and i can help you figure this out., Lou
