The first and cheapest thing I would check, would be the universal joints. Without actually hearing this noise, I can only speculate this to be the problem. I hope this to be of some help and Good Luck getting that fantastic piece of machinery back to top notch! Remember: Don't send a truck to do a Sierra's job!!!

The best way to identify exactly which accessory or component is making noise is to use a mechanics stethescope with a pointed tip on it. If you do not have access to one, the next best thing is to remove the serpentine belt and feel each individual pulley for binding or play. Also try to spin each pulley fast enough to create the noise.

Loud squeaky rear wiper on a 2000 odyssey.

Before you go through the time and hassle of removing the motor itself, spray some WD-40 or something similar on the shaft that goes to the motor...could be the weather seal is dried and squeaking.

I have a squeak in frot end only when braking

Dear Squeaky......if this noise ONLY persists upon the action of braking......then might I suggest a annual brake check? Is it more of a high-pitched squeal? Should be.....Pretty much any automotive shop out there....less dealers....will give your vehicle a free brake inspection....expect to pay a repair bill of about $130 for front brakes.....and a little less for rears.Unless of course you would like to get a little grease under them there nails of yours......but....then they can't call ya squeaky...can they? Youcan do brakes yourself for about half the price.......and have the pride of knowing what you can do.....get back to me if you need any assistance . HOPE I COULD HELP!!!!

Sueaky front wheel

It could be a number of things. First check your brakes for any rocks or excessive dirt. Second, check to make sure you are not in need of new brake pads. Brake pads are equipped with a tab that starts making noise when its time to replace your brakes. Third, have the bearing checked. Once the bearing get excessively worn they will start making a squeaky sound. Also have the shocks checked. the bushing worn out in shocks can also cause the noise. The best bet is to have your local mechanic inspect your front end for any wear. Once he does this, he can compile a list of parts that need replaced. Then you can replace or fix it yourself.

Rear end squeak

Noise is coming from a dry u-joint and or the carrier bearing if equiped. Usually a u-joint "cherps" in reverse first then only gets worse with time. If it starts vibrating at highway speeds replace them immediately.
