Hi :) I have a 1997 SW1 wagon same front end have replaced parts over the years since new and I'am still driving it that noise is coming from the CV axle to replace it you jack up the car and set on jack stands safely remove the bolt holding lower ball joint in place and seperate the two parts, Undo the large nut on the outside of the wheel hub and push the stud out of the bearing the take a large srewdriver or pry bar and pry the other end of the axle out of the center shaft support housing that goes to the transmission and reverse process to repace making sure the inner CV shaft is all the way seated into the center shaft support.

I would start by checking your wheel bearings. Do this by pushing back and forth on the top of your tire or car near the tire. If the tire wobbles back and forth at all your hub assembly should be replaced. For this problem I would check for this first.

Noise coming from the rear end of my 2004 honda pilot it really only occurs during cold weather and after it warms up you hear it slightly


When does the noise occur, while driving only, or driving and idle, in gear, or in neutral and park? If it occurs all the time (while driving and at a stand still in cold weather) it could be the fuel pump. If it occurs only while driving, it may be a wheel bearing. Describe the noise (humming, grinding, whirring, etc), and what is the mileage on the Pilot? Answer my questions so I can fine tune my answer. Thanks!

Loud noise sometimes ocurs when excelerating or braking. sounds like metal draging , but it is not.


Does it make a thudding sond on the shifter....Frist off is it 6-speed or auto, and is it a 5.7/z28/ss or base model...Could be rear tranny mount which is located on the crossmember of the car...If you put it in drive hold your foot firmly on the brake and accel, slowly only to about 2krpms, have a friend look under the middle of your car and watch for the trannie to buckle up towards the back half shaft.....Get back at me with this info..I own 7 camaros, i can def help you w/ this....
