Sounds like the differential to me, when the power drops you are probably crunching a broken piece thru the ring and pinion gears. This can be very dangerous, could lock the back wheels up while you are driving down the road and get you or someone else killed.

2002 Subaru Forester. I have a humming/grinding


I would suspect wheel bearing first
Test just like the front
Wheel off the ground
grab the top and bottom of the tire and rock

However...If I remeber correctly the rear uses axle bearings which are pressed on and difficult to diangose

Therefore... I'd advise you seek a Subau dealer since so few tech see a Forester even once a month

Hello,
Noise can be also from some sticky brake pad, or the bearings of the rear wheels, or even some spoiler, but you should have noticed it right after installing, and it is another sound. As for the differential, there might be a broken tooth, or again bearings, regardless of oil state.
