If you are definitely sure it is coming from the rear end you have to remove the rear end cover. You will see the condition of the fluid check the fluid while that is being done. You will have a bird's eye view of the condition of the ring and pinion gears and the pinion bearings. The rumble from the rear end is usually a bad pinion bearing.

If you're not sure it is the rear, another often overlooked problem is the rear universal joint on the drive shaft. You have to remove the drive shaft to check the pinion bearing so you'll find the "U" joint is bad right then and there. If the joint is bad, don't cheese out, get both of them replaced.

I had the rear end fixed about two years ago. A noise developed and got worse until it wouldn't move. Having same problem arise due to my 19 year son taking it one day and doing a number on it. Takes

if it is the diff centre , a quick and cheap fix is to get a replacement from the wreckers. Sometimes depending on the diff construction it is better to get the whole diff assembly --housing and all as the fix is just to drop out the whole rear end and fit the replacement unit. Labour time around 4 hours or less.

Is it the brakes? This rubbing/metal noise in rear when nearly at standstill.

I would advise getting the rear brakes, suspension and bearing's inspected , it may just be the brakes need cleaning up, as a build up of brake dust could cause this type of noise when driven for a while, ask a friend if they can recommend a mechanic , don't leave it to long as if there is a problem it will only get worse

Noise coming from rear end, sounds like I'm

sonds like you may be out of lubricant or even worse pinion gear or ring gear or both could be wore out from running without lubricant. Try filling it to proper level with gear oil usually 50 weight oil but i would check specifications in owners manual. then see if noise continues. good luck.

My jeep makes a repetitive noise at high speeds. At first I thought it was due to the fact that I was running late and didnt have time to let it warm up. I live in New England so it get's very cold over...

Check for the Universal Joint wear in the driveline. If it gets louder and louder and the clicking doesn't seem to go away on acceleration on the highway, then it's time to replace it.

1997 ford expediton two problems 1. is when coasting to a stop or just rolling slow a clicking noise coming from rearend area I first thought u-joint but checked that then wheel bearing checked that it...

If you use the Emergency brake more when you park a trailer, then both the clicking and the wheel bearing noise is due to the Emergency brake. The linings in the E brake are drum type and are inside the rear rotor. They will accumulate rust and make noise.

The rear pinion bearing in the differential can make a noise under load. This noise will go away if you are coasting in DRIVE, or put trans into NEUTRAL while moving. Pulling a load puts more strain on the bearing.

The heater problem can be several things. Usually an electric or vacuum "door" under the dash. A low water level after warmup. Or a bad thermostat will stick to begin with and then open too much causing a temperature drop. After the truck is warmed up, feel the heater hoses and see if they are both hot. If they are both hot, then its a "door" problem under the dash.

Rear end noise and seizing now

Sounds like one of two things is happening
1). the spider gears are binding
2). the ring gear is binding on the pinion

Check the pinion gear bolt for tightness first, then check for excessive end play. Make sure you have the correct fluid for your rear end type (limited slip takes one type, semi-posi takes another type and even sometimes reguires an additive) Hope this helps.

Whenever I turning into a parking spot my car

This is caused by deterioration of the Fluid in the rear differential of the car. This occurs when the rear end is opened at its extremes at first and will progressively get worse to the point where it will make the noise all the time while driving. First the fluid in the rear end needs to be changed, and replaced with the appropriate Honda fluid (either vtm 4 fluid or dual pump fluid depending on model) if the doesnt immediatley fix the problem, there is a burnish procedure that your local honda dealer can perform for you which involves changing the fluid and cleaning the clutches inside the rear diff. Good luck!
