Question about 2003 Pontiac Aztek
Okay! I love my 2003 Pontiac Aztek. Recently there has been a sand grinding noise. I have had all 4-hub bearings changed, brakes changed, new tires, and my calliper(i think that spelled wrong but you get my point) and roaters are good. I still have the sound, and it seems to be progressing into a louder metal type gringing and tonight it had a squeak. Now i thought it was my rear diff. fluid, but come to find out i have a suspension axel and it doesn't have that fluid. i'm losing my mind, can anybody help?!
My 03 Aztek is making the same noise - mechanic said needed new rear axel - $12- 1300. Would be cheaper & simpler to just disconnect the rear wheel drive & make it a front wheel drive. He still wants $500 for that but he's talking take apart & put two new connections at wheels. So isn't there an easier way to just disconnect communication to rear? Any ideas?

Ok so you have to jack up 2 wheels at a time or take it to the dealer and get soaked
pick your poision
also it could be the transfer case or hanger bearing or axcel pot if it is awd then you do have a diff front and rear could even be a input bearing
eithor way take it to a dealer or just go buy a dealer mechanic a lg coffey and ask a few questions

Do you own jack stands ???
why not jack up the drive wheels and listen for noises ?
jack each wheel up independantly and run the car for a couple of minutes this will aallow you to clear some different noises off the list
push down on the bumber and support the axcell with a jack stand more noises gone from equasion
jack the drive wheels up 1 at a time start car put in gear and run to 20 miles or 30 km chalk the other wheels and do it where you have some space incase chit happens that shouldn't
this will allow you to track the noise to it's location
