First step would be to get the right pressure on the pinion bearings. There is a crush sleeve that has to be smashed some to get about 14 inch pounds of pressure when you turn the pinion gear( this is a slight drag, pinion should not just spin ). Before the differential goes in. Also there is a factory shim between the pinion gear and the bearing, Did you all put that in. This will cause noise also. because the pinion isn't close enough to the crown. After that is when start to adjust for back lash. And having no back lash will make the differential hum. Also eat it up real quick.

Adjustment to crown wheel and pinion has to be done after bearing replacement on the pinion and carrier. It is a method that unless you have done a lot of diff repairs will amount to a trial and error procedure to get it right. Fortunately any work shop manual that you can borrow will have the way to set up the diff and there will be photos and directions on which to move to get the setting right. It is important to get the reading right as correct gear mesh will ensure a long lasting quite diff operation.

There is a grinding noise in the rear end


Could be problems with the rear axle; final drive carrier bearings or crown wheel and pinion or the pinion bearings. Each of these can produce a load sensitive noise.

After a thorough inspection of the propellor shaft, axle mountings and so forth I suggest you draw an oil sample from the axle into a sight glass. If the sample is metalised the internal components should be exposed for further examination.

Whining noise rear end


if the noise is occurring on acceleration it will be the rear pinion bearing
if it is on deceleration it will be the front pinion bearing
if it comes and goes s you drive normally it is the incorrect mesh between the crown wheel and pinion and indicates worn carrier side bearings allowing the mesh of the crown wheel and pinion to vary
check for correct oil in the diff and check magnet on drain plug for metal bits

1998 dodge durango. howling noise differential.


time to pull the diff centre as the noise is from incorrect positioning of the crown wheel and pinion. This happens from failed pinion bearings or side carrier bearings.. Could be lack of oil or the wrong oil if it is a limited slip diff.

I had my differenctial rebuilt like every thing and have a noise again at about 70-80 km. When I back of the gas it stops


No you shouldn't. If all that was replaced. Lift the vehicle and verify it is coming from the diff. If so, take it back. You didn't mention the vehicle, so there are many ways to torque the pinion bearings in. Do you have straight axles or CV axles. This all makes a difference. Also, if the shop diagnosed it and it isn't fixed, take it back. Don't pay for a bad diagnosis. Diffs aren't cheap. I know. I build them.

How do I remove the rear pinion shaft from a 1998 GMC Jimmy 4x4 to replace the bearing ?


you will have to remove the axles first ,then the crown wheel then the pinion flange and pull the pinion shaft out past where the crown wheel was . From the fact that you had to as how to do and that setting up a diff is not just a matter of changing a bearing I strongly recommend to you that you have this job done by an accredited transmission shop as failure to properly reassemble and adjust the settings will cost you a large amount of money

My Honda 2004 CR-V develops a howling noise from the rear of the car after about 20 miles of driving. I have changed the rear differential fluid, and burnished the differential clutches per Honda Service...


A howling noise from a diff is an indication of the gear mesh( pinion to crown wheel) is not correct. Several reasons being worn pinion bearings--loss of preload on the pinion bearings --- crown wheel carrier bearings failing ---not sufficient preload on the bearings---wear on the teeth from incorrect diff oil in use. or simply wrong diff oil. The grade should be 80w90 OEP for normal or special oil for limited slip diffs.

Replacing crown and pinion for audi a4 2000 multitronic


i suspect a LAY SHAFT BEARING but without a drive i couldnt say ,if its the pinion and crownwheel then i doubt this but it just needs setting up to a wiggle woggle on the backlash this is achieved by moving the crownwheel in or out of mesh with the pinion by adjusting the cap bearings ,but removing this gearbox and playing around with it on advice of who knows who is not advisable ,with it on the bench in front me i can do this adjustment with my eyes shut and just feel it but its taking it out for starters ,now this tiptronic type box with the paddle controls or whatever uses hydraulic transmission oil in the gearbox which doesnt do the crownwheel any good at all as EPoil is needed for this and it has the same oil as the autoboxes ,best advice is to find one in the scrapyard and just change it complete.Like the early minis with automatic gearbox and the engine oil running through the lot .URGH showing my age here i think

How do you remove the front rearend crown and pinion on 1997 gmc serria 4x4 1500 pick-up


That indicates a bad pinion bearing. On this rear end it is usually necessary to replace the ring and pinion gears as well as the bearings becasue when the pinion bearing goes bad it will spin on the pinion gear itself causing it to wear thus just replacing the bearing will not work because it will fit loose on the pinion gear and it needs to be pressed on tight. ---------- First the c-clips are to be removed from the pinion gears.-------- Click this link below and follow the detailed procedure:---- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/07/how-to-remove-rear-end-crown-and-pinion.html -------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
