It's not a bearing, the central support for the shaft made out of rubber is worn out or has failed completely. Replace it.

What is the layout in a diff of a Mahindra bolero DC? Mine's pinion bearing is gone I suppose because it is making a screetching noise. There is no play though between the propshaft and the pinion.

all diffs are constructed the same
check if there is any oil in the diff
if a bearing was faulty on the pinion , you will have movement at the pinion flange up/down /in/out
if you have a center bearing in the drive shaft , consider that the bearing has failed there producing the noise

I have a 1992 Ford F350.Just replaced the rear end. It still makes a clunking noise when I put it in reverse. What could it be

the "backlash" felt by reversing the drive shaft direction is normally the clearance in the spider gears in the diff so to get rid off that ( not necessary unless it is excessive) is to pull the diff center out and fit new thrust washers behind the spider gears
next check the diff mount bushes as the diff reaction will move the bolts in the mounts and make the noise

Driving noise, not from bearings

it could be center bearing, if its going bad it can also cause a vibration, make sure you have sufficient fluid in the diff as well, you can also get a noise and vibration from collapsed motor or trans mounts

Noise in reverse

a lot of cars are noisy in reverse but if excessive it could be a failing bearing on the diff pinion that comes under load when the opposite shaft rotation is in brought into use. check when driving normally if there is a noise after you accelerate then take you foot off the accelerator

Klunking noise when shifting to reverse Shakes going down road in drive.

Im guessing this is a LGV!! 7.5ton? Is the noise there before moving off? or only in motion! ! Is it there while free wheeling!! ill research that model abit for you! You need to park her up!! Sounds like gearbox/diff... : ( depending on when it happens ie movement/parked freewheel/under load. double check the basics! Shafts, cupplings, wheel bearings, hate to say this one wheel nuts : )

2005 chevy astro making heaving shaking and howling noise while driving

spin the drive shaft back an forth, if it has play then its your universal joints, also lift drive shaft up and down near the the bearing and see if there's play there as well.

Auto transmission clunking noise when putting into reverse & foward or taking out

the noise is the free play in the side gears of the diff and is normal in a diff that has some miles
there is a problem if the pinion moves forward or back when turning the shaft
check for "U" joints as if they are failing you will get the noise when changing direction
other areas to check are suspension rubbers and transmission rubber mounts

When i say its gone again i mean the drive shaft has gone again thats 2 times in the space of 2 days. i had it fixed the first time 2 days ago then a day later i put it into reverse and it went again. i...

is it the n/s drive shaft.
if so its the diff, there is a circlip that is not seated correct so punchs it of the gears in diff.
you normally loose a end bearing on shaft.
cant be that far out of align.
look when n/s shaft out into diff, look close for chips and circlip. u will understand how it should be when u look.

does your truck also ingage its self into 4 wheel and make a loud noise
only way to stop it is to stop the truck or shift into 4 high on the go
only happens when it wants 3 times a day or not for a week
