Marble noise from rear end

I have a noise that is coming, I think from the axel, sounds like marbles. You can hear it mainly when I slow down and take my foot of the gas. I had the rear end rebuilt and new barings all the way around. Still the noise is there. Could it be the transmission? There is no change in performance but something is not right.

Had the same sounds, and so has my friend with the same year jeep. We both had work done on the rear wheel bearings, and the sound returned for both of us. I took mine in to the dealer and was informed that the bearings had worn the location the bearings actually fit into the housing into an oblong shape and they replaced the entire housing (under warrantee, no cost to me, so it wasn't a scam).

Also check your tires... Cupping occurs when shocks an/or springs become worn. It's simple enough to check. Slide your hand over the tires and feel if the rear side of the tread is higher than the front side. This will cause the airplane sound as well!

Hi, my son put a marble inside my muffler. Is there anyway I can get it out without taking it to the mechanics? It makes a rattling noise because of the marble.


Only way to remove something like that would be to remove the muffler and stand it on end. if the pipe is welded, it needs to be cut and sleeved to put it back on. Since the marble is glass there is no other way aside from standing the car on end. Far easier to take the muffler off!!!

1999 T&C with very loud noise somehow associated with a/c or belt


From your description it sounds like a bearing in one of the units driven by the drive belt is failing. It's most likely the a/c compressor but could be a tensioner or idler pulley. The added stress of the a/c compressor could cause the noise to occur only with the a/c on. To determine which bearing is failing the drive belt would be removed and the pulleys spun by hand while listening for noise. It is just a coincidence that the noise got worse after they checked the refrigerant pressures. The part that is likely failing isn't oiled by the oil in the a/c system.

Hub noise


You have a bad wheel bearing, when you turn away from the bad bearing the wheel bearing is un-loaded and quiets down.
