I have a 2003 subaru baja (no turbo) and while driving on the highway had to almost come to a complete stop due to a sudden accident in front. since then I have a whining/grinding like sound when I press...


If you are driving and you put the vehicle in neutral and coast, push the brake pedal and NOT the clutch pedal and see if the noise is still there. If the noise is there, then you will need to get your brakes checked out. If the noise only happens when the clutch is pushed in, then your clutch release bearing might have something wrong with it. I hope this info helps.

Is there any problems with removing the rear driveshaft on a Subaru Baja ?


If it is bolted to the transfer case, then no problems. If it sticks inside the case. You can't remove it. Fluid will drain from the case And eventually lock up.

My 2009 Subaru legacy is making a loud humming noise. It is worse when I make turns....my suby has 10100,00 Hwy miles on it


Usually a sign of a faulty hub bearing on one wheel. In most cases the noise changes with a right or left turn depending on which side the bearing is on.

I have a2000 chevy blazer 4 wheel drive 2 door ....terrible constant growling noise. Cant figure out from where but it doesnt stop or really even change when turning left or right. Thought it was a hub...


Driveline and wheel bearing noises can be very decieving. - especially on 4X4 vehicles. These noises can travel through the vehicle and sound like they are coming from one place when they are caused by something else. I have 2 recomendations:

1. Take it to a professional that deals with 4X4 drive trains and have him lend you an ear.

2. get the thing on a lift and listen to the components with a stethescope. It could be a wheel bearing, a differential, a transfer case, or even the transmission making a noise like you have described.

My 1999 Forester Subaru wheel bearings are bad both rear wheels not to mention the front I just had repaired at Firestone for 600.00 Is it worth the extra money to take the car to Subaru, a 300....


Are you sure that they bearings are really bad, bad tires can also give you a growl noise from the bearings if they are different or worn badly. It should not mater where you take it to have them done, just that they use good quality parts and replace them properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.

NOISE IN THE FRONT LEFT WHEEL ON A 1999 SUBARU OUTBACK , BRAKES AND ROTOR HAS BEEN REPLACED


if the front brake pads,rotor and more importantly the caliper were all installed correctly, this noise is probably a front hub bearing that is failing. they will start a humming noise and then a roaring/growling noise the worse they get. is the noise rotational? by that it will get louder and higher in pitch as you increase the vehicle speed. get it checked out right away to avoid possible further damage.

Problem with transaxle?


Have the 4X4 transfer case fluid changed and a bottle of friction modifier added, sounds like the clutches are sticking, if that doesn't correct the problem then the transfer case will need to be overhauled

1999 subaru forester growls from rear wheels


Hello, from the sounds of it you have a wheel bearing out. One way to usually verify that it is a wheel bearing is to drive down that road and swerve side to side to transfer the wieght of the vehicle back and forth. If it is a wheel bearing you will notice a change in the sound. If you hear a change in the sound figure out which side it is coming from. If when you swerve right and it's louder or makes more noice then it will be the left bearing and vice versa.
