Default some weird noise from the front left

This noise that I'm talking about has grown over a small amount of time. It's a combination of a few noises, and im not really sure if its a suspension, drivetrain, etc noise. A friend's dad helped me check it out, and what he did was jack up the front end, see if the wheel wobbled, and it did. He tightened what i think is the hub (the orange piece in the center) and it no longer wobbled. And a few days later, the same kind of sound has been going off when i turn right or even drive straight (it used to only sound when i turned left, but now sounds lightly when i turn left but much louder when i am turning right or going straight). Its a combination of a shaving, creeking, squeeking noise. I believe it could be the wheel bearing. I would just like help to see what it exactly is.

Sorry for being a noob and thanks in advance

if it's the wheel bearing, then it will get louder with speed. so the faster you go, the louder it will be.

what the heck did he tighten. i don't remember any orange pieces!

does it sound like a helicopter getting louder and louder as you speed up? if so, it's the wheel bearing. However! if its a creaking sound and it's loud when you turn then it could be your axle acting up. My CV boot ripped and all the grease shot out on the rim and the axle went dry and starting to creak and making a really loud screaching sound. So check your CV boot for leaks in grease.
