There is a weird grinding noise come from underneath my subaru. The sound seem to be coming from the fron passegner side, and stops when I apply brakes(even a slight touch of the brakes. Thak you.


jack up car on passengers side and see if tire is tight, it may be a bad wheel bearing. to check, see if there is any movement in tires. rotate the tire and see if noise is there. a way to check for a bad wheel bearing is to jack up tire, then apply emergency brake and put foot on brake start car and put it in gear ( foot on brake ).release the brake real slow and the tire will spin,do not give it gas, so you can tell if the bearings are bad. be careful not to let car lurch forward! if not the bearings. you may have a worn brake pad on that side etc. good-day !!

Grinding noise passenger side front


Check wheel bearing.
Check backing brake plate , sometimes it's bended and touching brake rotor.
If wheel bearing is bad , you may have same effect with backing plate , brake rotor touch backing plate.

My 91 Legacy will not drive the rear wheels. It's an all wheel drive with the option of disabling the rear wheels for diagnostic purposes but the fuse that you need to place in the fuse holder to disable...


You have it backwards. The fuse is not suppose to be in it unless you don't want the rear to work. Remove the fuse and it should be fine. That is only to have a fuse in it when you don't want the rear to be engaged. Have a great day.

Left front wheel bearing is bad, need to change. on a 1991 Subaru legacy.


Basically you need to remove the hub and take it to a garage, it takes up to 10 ton to press a bearing out, and change both sides, otherwise you will get the right side problem very soon.

Wheels making binding noises when turning


I have this same problem with my 1996 Subaru Legacy 2.2 Wagon. There is a Subaru Service Bulletin #16-62-97 dated 5/16/97 with a Subject entitled "Transfer Clutch Binding And/Or Bucking On Turns". There is also an important follow-up to it numbered 16-64-99 dated 09/15/99 entitled "Revised Transfer Clutch Assembly Replacement Procedures" that should also be used should you decide to go ahead with the transfer clutch replacement.

I just got these Service Bulletins from my mechanic who got them from a Subaru dealer.
The estimate was about $700-$1000 to fix. This is more than likely the cause of the binding problem on slow, sharp turns.

I have a 1991 Subaru Legacy right hand drive wagon. I put in a new front axle assembly and I still have a knocking sound. Everything I have read with that sound says it is the cv joint. Someone told me it...


A CV joint - when going bad - is more of a clicking sound.. Not so much a knocking sound.. And tends to get louder when turning & accelorating..

Hope this helps !!
Rate me good ;o)
