Question about Ford Territory
Have only had this car for a couple of months and when I went for a drive in the hills I noticed a noise coming from under the car, my son in-law is a mechanic and thinks that it is the transfer case, was wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem the car has only done 72600 km's and it is a 2010 AWD territory
It must be suspension.

Testimonial: "Thankyou for your response Sameer but I should have added that the noise comes on when travelling at about 80 kmph and when the car is under load as in going up hills. My son in=law had a listen while the car was up on a hoist and could hear the noise through a screwdriver placed on the transfer casing. I was wondering if this was a common fault with this model car. again thankyou for your input, regards Jeff"

One thing to check, which is often the culprit in these situations is the U-joints. With the truck off, crawl under the vehicle and grab hold of the shaft leading into as well as the shaft going out of your transfer case, If htere is a lot of "slop in it, chance are it is in need of repair. Also I would check the oil level in the transfer case, in an attempt not to challenge you intelligence, there should be a plug located in the lower part about 2 inches from the bottom or so. it usually has a square hole that a 1/2" ratchet fits into. Pull the plug, and stick your pinky into the hole, you should be able to feel the lubricant just below the hole, if not it is in dire need of a filling. also check for metallic remnants in the fluid. this is a sign that things are not as they should be. In that case contact a repairman for a more thorough look.

the first thing i would check is the sway bar bushings they usualy go first. you have a bushing out somwhere. ive replace many struts because people have requested new struts and when we install them they come back and complain that the clunk is still there and all it needed was a bushing kit for $20
hope this helps
