You have a seal leak causing the differential oil to get onto the rear brakes shoes.what is happening is the brakes grab the drum and shift until they can`t move(turn)any more causing the clunking noise.the groove in the axle if it is bad enough then it will need a axle sleeve installed which gives the axle were the groove is a smooth surface,it is a thin metal sleeve the diameter of the axle that is installed on the axle.

Drivers side transmission axel seal still leaking after replacing on 2000 Honda Odyssey


You may need to replace the axle, it may have a groove worn from the seal lip and this prevents it from sealing even with a new seal.

1994 Land Rover Discovery Manual has a grinding and clunking noise from rear, right side


A grinding noise suggests a bearing at fault or perhaps worn pads on the brake rotor.

However, the clunking noise you mention could also point to a problem with the drive shaft or differential.

The first thing you should do is to get under the vehicle and try twisting the propshaft back and forth. If there's any movement this points towards a worn universal joint on the propshaft. A worn universal joint can cause a clunking noise - particularly when pulling away. The vibration caused by a worn universal joint can also damage bearings in the differential and also to the splined ends of the axle shaft.

You're also going to have to remove the wheel from where the noise comes from and examine the end of the axle shaft/bearing.

My isuzu is making a clunking noise when i drive in the back drivers side. It is also leaking a grey black gunky substance inbetween the rotoer and what the rotor goes on to.


The clunking noise is a sign that the rear axle diffential gear oil needs to be changed. Put a catch pan underneath it, and remove all the bolts from the differential cover. Drain the old oil, and spray brake cleaner into the area to flush all dirt deposits from the unit. The brake cleaner evaporates and won't leave a residue.

Put a silicone sealant around the cover before remounting. Refill the unit with the gear oil weight specified in your maintenance manual, and also add a tube of limited slip differential paste (available at Autozone). Fill the differential until it begins to overflow from the fill hole.

Concerning the black gunky substance leaking out: there's a good chance that the axle seal is worn and letting the differential gear oil leak out. You should consider replacing those before refilling the differential. It will continue to leak until you do so.

Best regards,
Steve

Fluid leak from left rear axle housing


This is caused by a leaking rear axle seal you will need to pull the left rear axle out and change the seal and check for a worn axle bearing, this requires the removal of the differential cover, pin and center block or posi spring and clutch pack (if so equipped) and spider gears and then the "C" clip that retains the axle into the gear carrier, u will need a tube of silicone to reseal the cover and a axle seal installer tool and about 2 hours of your time

Rubbing or grinding noise coming from Driver side rear tire/wheel


I had the same problem that based on interner research is common for Fords trcuks/suvs. The common problem fro rear humming "rubbing"sound might be the rear wheel bearings/seal. These will need to be replaced as it will progressivly get worse and the noise louder and eventually the bearings can sieze. I would hesitate to take to a ford dealer if I were you as it can run $500-900. Take to mechanic that knows how to replace wheel bearings and seals. My mechanic replaced them for about $150. and the bearing and seals are around $40. A good way to test this is to raise the wheel were you can freely spin by hand...if does not spin or there is a lot of friction then it might be the wheel bearings.
Good Luck

Rear end clunk in Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup


The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.
