There are 3 or 4 things that I can think of to check. Start by looking to see if there is anything hanging down or potentially being pushed into where the wheel is during driving, primarily the inner fender. I am guessing you have done this, but you can check to see if it has enough play to even get to that point. Next I would consider the splash shield for the front disc brakes. Did the noise start after a recent brake job? This is probably the culprit. To fix this all you have to do is give it a couple of whacks away from the disc rotor. and you're golden. The next thing to consider is whether the axle is rubbing on something as you turn. The fourth thing I would consider is a wheel bearing...just hope it isn't that because the others are cheap (free).

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited makes rear noise when turning left?


Could be low on oil, or need a shot of additive if it is a limited slip differential.
The noise may be the clutches in the diff or one of the axle bearings.

Rubing noise when turning. had power steering checked and was good. i can hear it comming from steering. sounds dry, any grease zerks?


As far as the grease fittings are concerned, you should have between 2 to 6 fittings. 1 on each upper control arm, 1 on each tie rod, and possibly 2 on the center links. If you are hearing a rubbing noise, it could possible be the wheels rubbing on the inside of the wheel well. Alot of people like to put bigger tires on 4x4's to add give them extra clearance off the ground, specifically for off roading. But with the bigger tires could also come a wider tire, causing the rubbing. Have your tire dealer check for correct tire size.

I HAVE A RUBBING SOUND FROM THE STEERING WHEEL AND A JIFFY LUBE TECH SAYS I NEED THE LUBRICANT CHANGED IN MY REAR DIFFERENTIAL. THE JEEP IS A 2004 GRAND CHEROKEE LIMITED ANY COMMENTS?


The rubbing sound you hear may or may not be related to the differential condition. If the diff lube has not been changed in the last 12,000 miles, it's due for a change: it is recommended as normal service.(front and rear) If the diff is leaking or very low, or, if there is a noise, just replacing the lube won't help. You need to correct the problem.
The average JL tech is well trained in removing and replacing oil drain plugs and filters. Leave the real diagnosis to a trained experts. You may have a piece of plastic column cover rubbing (easy to fix) or something more serious such as a hub bearing or differential internal bearing failing.

I have a 2005 jeep grand Cherokee and when i turn the steering wheel it makes a clicking noise i believe it may be the turn signal stick that is rubbing up against the steering, also when i lock and unlock...


The clicking noise is coming from the clock spring in the steering column. The clock spring is the connection between the air bag and lower harness. It should be replaced by a certified technician.

yes when you make the absoulute full turn your hearing like a hissing noise this is normal if this is what your hearing then problem solved but if has a different sound than that like a rubbing sound then check the fender wells to see is there is any rub marks this can be corrected by putting in a turn stopper
