I had the same problem with mine && it ended up being a simple fix.

Check out your heat shield underneath near the back of the car. They tend to come loose and need to be massaged with a hammer or taken out completely. This problem usually occurs when you rev the RPMs to 2 or 3 thousand.

Let an experienced technician deal with this if you aren't familiar with it.

1994 Land Rover Discovery Manual has a grinding and clunking noise from rear, right side


A grinding noise suggests a bearing at fault or perhaps worn pads on the brake rotor.

However, the clunking noise you mention could also point to a problem with the drive shaft or differential.

The first thing you should do is to get under the vehicle and try twisting the propshaft back and forth. If there's any movement this points towards a worn universal joint on the propshaft. A worn universal joint can cause a clunking noise - particularly when pulling away. The vibration caused by a worn universal joint can also damage bearings in the differential and also to the splined ends of the axle shaft.

You're also going to have to remove the wheel from where the noise comes from and examine the end of the axle shaft/bearing.

The link below is of images of the rear axle:

Why do I hear grinding noises while driving?


Hit in the rear axle may have damaged bearings or brake parts. Jack up the side you hear noise from, put on stand, then have helper rotate wheel while you look underneath and listen to see where noise is coming from. Use length of old fuel or heater hose, one end in ear, to locate exactly where noise comes from.

Bad clunk from rear of vehicle can drive it


if it is a metallic clicking/grinding, then it is the axle bearings. get them serviced in a shop (unless you know a buddy with a press), because, if it really is the half axle bearings, it could eventually grind thru your axle, and cause an accident

Grinding metal sound over 30 mph


I believe that your Subaru has a transmission issue. There are quite a few things that will make a grinding noise. Wheel bearings, worn out brakes, damaged brake rotors or drums, loose or damaged brake calipers, defective hardware kit (for the brake shoes), torque converter, flywheel, U-joints, and CV joints. The interesting part of your symptoms is that you can only hear the grinding between 30-60MPH. I think you need to continue testing and inspecting components, one by one. You have all ready narrowed your search down. You know that the Brakes, CV joints, and Bearings are fine. So now you need to focus on the drive train. Inspect as much as you can from the flywheel, to the transmission, the drive shaft and rear axel, and the output shaft and front drive axel. If you can not find it yourself it may be time to send it in for repair. Let me know if you have any questions or new information, good luck.

You can do this job your self with common tools. Auto zone carries the wheel bearing you need and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the bearing. Here is a tip, to try to break the old wheel bearing from the axle. Just loosen the 4 bolts 3 mm that hold the bearing to the axle and put the wheel back on and drive the car back and forth a few times, hard on the brakes to break it free from the axle. Once the bearing breaks free from the axle, it should take you under 45 min to get the job done. Good luck and be safe.

Rear direrintial


The rear diff. turns the rear wheels. It is located in the middle of the rear axle. It won't last long if you ignore it. May just need dearing's but if it is driven the cog wheels will grind to dust or drop off this can cause the rear axle to seize up and can be a danger because the back wheels will lock up. If you are going to fix it yourself let me know and I will be able to guide you through the process
