Hi, I am wondering what could it be because I hear a noise comming from my passengers tire, like if something is spinning. I thought it was the engine noise but when i brake the window of the passenger side vibrates and the noise is deeper. I was wondering if you guys have any idea what could it be and how could i check it?? thanks in advance!!!

I dont have any brake drag and the pads are not worn down, i changed them resently. A couple of months i got a broken boot and I got it changed but the stupid mechanic didnt tighted the boot enought so there was grease comming out of it, I thighten the boot and the grease stoped comming out. I am curious if the noise could be because I lost a lot of grease out of the boot and it damaged something?
I had the boot fixed myself the next day b/c the stupid mechanic was busy.

Its possible, although it sounds more like uneven wear on the rotor. make sure the rotor is flush against the knuckle. one time I got a piece of rust between the rotor and knuckle and played hell with the brakes. made that spinning noise and caused bad noise and vibration on braking.

Jack it up and try to move the wheel around to check for play. Could be a bearing foing out or a loose axle nut. Since you recently had work done on that area, it's what I would check for first. Bearings usually sound like a whirring/spinning/and sometimes grinding sound.
