Noise in the rear diferencial

When I'm driving my 2003 jaguar x type, I hear a humming noise in the rear diferencial, and sometimes that noise moves to the front. Some body told me that it could be an imbalance drive shaft. Do you have any ideas??

SOURCE: 2003 Jaguar S-Type, programming a key fob

If its a new key fob the only way you can program it is this the factory scan tool, u'll have to take it to a dealership for them to do this and they will charge you .5 hrs for labor.only x-types can be programmed without the jaguar software. Im guessing it will cost you between 40 and 50 bucks to have them program it.

Humming noise when car is moving

most likely if its a hum it could be tires , if its a roar it could be the drive train

support the vehicle on jack stands , start the engine , put in drive and let it idle, if noise is gone ...its the tires if not check the drive train ...start with fluid levels

I have a really loud humming noise in Tue rear end of my 03 JAG s type just wondering what could be the issue here?

I can almost assure you its a rear wheel hub bearing.It will have to be replaced at a shop...Job will cost about 4-500.00 bucks..The s types are notorious for this.The bearing will usuall make the noise as you go into the corner turns and if you turn in the opposing side wheel the sound will go away until you go into a straight line.They will usual take a stethascope while the car is on the rack and place it in drive to pin point the bearing.Good luck..

2003 Suburban 4x4- Humming noise in the left front that gets louder the faster you go. Replaced the wheel bearing and still have the same problem. Any suggestions.

check the tires sometime if the tires are choppy they will make a lot of noise.if they are try swapping a rear tire to the front and see if the sound moves location.

Bearing Noise but is not a wheel Bearing ,probably in transmission

i was told i needed a new transmission and also had a rear real bearing noise and needed it replaced. I chose to have trany replaced. I never, never heard a noise from rear wheel . Anyway, after driving my 2002 ford explorer ,repaired with overhaul tran kit and new torque converter, at 160 miles it really does not feel like it is shifting right. I call the "reputable " company" and they say, " Oh you know you are probably mistaking that for that whhel bearing noise I told you about!"
Can ou give me your summation here? Alot of $$ I sons wedding expenses I had saved...thank you

Noise when driving at speed Jaguar X type (53 plate)

This problem that your having is all too common on Jaguars. I have a 2002 X-type and I have been completely screwed over with it. I've had all of your problems and then some. The noise your hearing is a prop shaft most likely in the front of the vehicle. Jag says that it doesn't need to be replaced but you always can. They quoted me somewhere close to 1,300. Good Luck.
