You should have the drive axles checked. Also Wheel bearings. Are there any vibrations or pulling?

SOURCE: Installing replacement side mirror on 2007 Subaru Forester

yes... you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can access the bolts holding the mirror on and disconnect the wiring harness as well..

SOURCE: 2002 Subaru Forester. I have a humming/grinding

if the humming noise appears while pressing the gas at atleast 80kph speed then the problem is with your differential carrier gears due to gear backlash or excessive clearance, check your wheel bearings as well by *********** the rear of your car till its off the ground, release the parking brake and put gear to neutral, rotate wheels and see if it makes cracking noise, it does then the problem is with your bearings, check brakes as well it could be that dirt got trapped on your discs/ backing plate or brake drum....

2002 Subaru Forester. I have a humming/grinding


I would suspect wheel bearing first
Test just like the front
Wheel off the ground
grab the top and bottom of the tire and rock

However...If I remeber correctly the rear uses axle bearings which are pressed on and difficult to diangose

Therefore... I'd advise you seek a Subau dealer since so few tech see a Forester even once a month

2002 Subaru Forester with grinding noise and banging from back end, and occasional surge/power drop. Is this a differtial, wheel bearings or some other problem?


Sounds like the differential to me, when the power drops you are probably crunching a broken piece thru the ring and pinion gears. This can be very dangerous, could lock the back wheels up while you are driving down the road and get you or someone else killed.

I have a 2003 Subaru Forester XT Luxury manual transmission with 100,000Km. The last 5000Km I have been increasingly aware of noise - hum rather than grinding or scraping or shadder - from rear end which...


Hello,
Noise can be also from some sticky brake pad, or the bearings of the rear wheels, or even some spoiler, but you should have noticed it right after installing, and it is another sound. As for the differential, there might be a broken tooth, or again bearings, regardless of oil state.

2002 forester front diferential makes noise on acceleration


I would say that you either have a bearing going out, or the gears in the differential have worn, and are not at the proper spacing. If it is a whining that you hear, sounds like a school bus, then it is probably the gears that have too much slack in them. To reset this, you have to have specialized tools to get it in proper adjustment. I would say you probably need to have a transmission shop take a look at it.

Drive train is getting loud in town and on freeway, differential?


Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. This is common in Subarus. It actually gets louder with the speed of the car and can go bad in the front driver/passenger sides or both rear sides. A wheelbearing can cost around 69.00 at an auto store, just specify if its front or rear and see if you can find a good friend/mechanic to replace it for you. My brother has done all of mine in all my subarus, very familiar with the sound you describe, its like an airplane taking off.
Good Luck.

How to remove the rear differential on a 2001 Subaru Forester?


I had a somewhat similar problem: I would hear scratching noise from the rear of the car whenerver I turn. I (reasonably) thought it was the differential and brought the car to the mechanic with this in mind. But it turned out to be a protective cover of one of the rear breaking discs that was bent by an impact. When I was turning the wheel would very slightly bend off the axis and the disc would scratch against the cover. So, it's not always the differential. BTW: I have Forester '03
