SOURCE: HOWLING NOISES

Did you check your Transmission fluid and your differential fluids make sure there up and I don't know if you checked your rear wheel bearings or not, You can usually tell a wheel bearing when you are driving the car at highway speeds and you go around a corner and it get quite a bit louder Depending on what way you are turning if your turning right and it gets louder it will usually be the right side front or rear. the left usually the left front or back. some cases I have even heard Axles making a Howling Noise. Please let me know what you come up with. And Thanks in advance If I helped you out any. Bear001

SOURCE: 2005 Yukon Front Diff Axle seals

You don't have to remove the whole diff to change the seals, but you will have to seperate it where the shaft meets the carrier housing. There is a clip holding the passenger axle shaft in place that you have to remove to change the seal. The drivers side axle stub can be removed with a little force as there is a spring clip holding that side in.

SOURCE: Rear axle bearing replacment

Not 100% sure on that vehicle & don't have manual on it at this time, but will say very common that it does have "C" like clip at end of axle. Large pin comes out first, then push axle in slightly & remove clip, & slide axle out.

SOURCE: DANA 35 BEARING REPLACE

If you are going to change one of the pinion bearings you really need to replace both since you will have the pinion shaft out anyway. At the same time you will need to replace the crush sleeve to set the proper load on the pinion bearings. Your Chrysler dealer should have the crush sleeve in stock. The bearings you can just cross reference to another bearing by using the old numbers off the race and bearing. Good luck.

SOURCE: How to remove the rear differential on a 2001 Subaru Forester?

I had a somewhat similar problem: I would hear scratching noise from the rear of the car whenerver I turn. I (reasonably) thought it was the differential and brought the car to the mechanic with this in mind. But it turned out to be a protective cover of one of the rear breaking discs that was bent by an impact. When I was turning the wheel would very slightly bend off the axis and the disc would scratch against the cover. So, it's not always the differential. BTW: I have Forester '03

I have an O2 Dodge ram 15102 Wheel Dr., how can I tell if a bearing is going bad in one of my wheels?


You have to jack the vehicle off the ground, then grab each tire at the 12:00 and 6:00 positions. Then as hard as you can try to wiggle the tire up and down. If there is any movement then that wheel bearing needs to be replaced.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE REAR WHEEL BEARINGS IN A 1993 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LARADO?


no they are bad, unless its brakes
a real mech , checks both.
its one or the other, or worse. bad axle gear/bearings/

the fsm covers both. ever seen the real book? on this car.
the ZJ book is here and free

http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service
posted like 100+ times, now......

keep in mind jeeps may have different axles.
2wd, 4wd, and locking axles (options)
models 30, 35 and 44 so the details vary that is why the book wins here. the real book wins.

diagnosis is an other matter, i have an electronic stethoscope
that allows me to drive and hear each bearing. cost me $35.

id inspect brakes first. after all they are in clear easy view.
make sure the brake parts are not seized. that includes
the Emg. brake parts !!!
does you car have ABS brakes?
some have drums others have rear disc brakes, the linked FSM
covers both.

for example disc calipers can fail in many ways
guides seized.
pistion seized
emg brake part stuck.
cracked rotors, or warped.

so that be first a real brake inspection on side that makes noise.

if the brakes are ok, then axle bearings are checked next
if you feel radial play they are BAD.
and more. ask.

Diagnose diff howl after slight sidewards accident


You really need a stethoscope to diagnose this. Just to see where the noise is coming from. Axle bearings, diff bearings, pinion bearings, and gears. Pull the rear cover and check for metal. Metal in the oil would indicate a longer problem. A slight sideways jolt could aggravate the problem.

I have a 98 ford f150 4wd rear diff is howling bad under load and coast no noise at no load had bad rear axles and brgs even though i didnt think this would fix it i replaced them as i expected, no...


the bad bearings and axles probably caused damage or wear to the gears / pinion when under load the bearings keep the axles straight and keeps downward pressure from loads off the gears and gear bearings --look at gear mesh will probably be off very slightly and not from backlash shims but from ring gear bearings or pinion bearing damaged

Howling noise from rear when in motion


Constant howl....usually wheel bearing.
Howl on acceleration.......usually rear pinion bearing (the bigger of the two on the pinion) in the diff (rear axle)
Howl on de-acceleration....the front (smaller) pinion bearing in the diff.(rear axle)

Howling noise while driving.


Need a little humor now and then, anyway it sounds like you have a pinion gear bearing that's noisy, they really howl when they get worn out, in order to change this bearing the rear end gears must be removed, new bearings should be installed on all parts, 4 total, the metal from the failed pinion bearing will ruin the rest of the bearings, might as well only do it once, also change the axle bearings and seals while you are in there.

Howling in right, rear wheel area while driving


it sounds like you know what you are talking about so you probably already had a look inside the brake drum for worn shoes and broken springs ect.........If you haven't do so.As for the bearing.....there is one but it requires dis assembly of the reared.if you haven't done one of these,get someone who knows how to..there are too many little things to know and its easy to damage the diff from improper dis and re assembly(then you're lookin at big bucks) If you feel confident you can do this though get a step by step manual to ensure you know all of the procedures
hope this helps.........Good Luck!

Howl rear right wheel


As a matter of fact the diff can make noise on and off the gas, my own car a 1996 Corvette does this, it needs the ring and pinion replaced, is this what you are talking about when you say they told you that you needed a whole new differential?
