constant velocity joints are for front wheel drive cars to transfer the power from the transmission/engine to the front drive wheels that turn around corners , your car is rear wheel drive , rear wheels do not turn around corners so it does not need any type of joints , its a straight drive axle , incidentally your car has the 3.o jaguar engine id bet since they were a deal ford did when obtaining jaguar (let them use them in there lux cars)
if all lugs are off and wheels of ground (jack up)
clean hub surface and apply pen oil to hub
get heavy sledged hammer and hit rubber tire at outer area
while turning wheel it should come free corrosion build up is common
and somtimes hard to free up
(1) Rear wheels will get hair or thread wrapped around axles, dust, etc. and be hard to turn. Make sure each wheel turns easily.
(2) Small wheels on newer models (since about 1997-98) toward front are worn, missing or have same problem as item 1.
(3) Brush roll not turning. The brush roll actually helps pull this unit along the floor, as it rotates in the "forward" direction. If the belt broke, and you do not realize it, it may suddenly seem harder to push.
Throughout my experience with Toyota's I have found that several times the hubcaps have made some weird noises. Try removing your hubcaps and driving your vehicle. If the noise still persists please let me know and I can ask u some questions and try to help you with your problem.
Hello, I think I had the same problem with mine : the filterpump worked, but robot didn't move. I opened it up and the problem seemed to be that the pin which locks up the gear wheel to the axle of the front wheels had broken into three pieces. We inserted a new pin (nail, screw etc) and the Robo kleen works just fine again. Maybe you should check this is also the problemwith yours. Good luck !
when driving in 4wd engagement there is a problem in that the torque in the axles and drive lines is not dissipated on hard surfaces as the wheels cannot slip ( great for snow ice mud gravel and the like but a no-no on hard non slip surfaces
yes reversing it will relieve it but if on hard surface ,winds it up again in reverse
better to simply drive two wheels onto the grass verge of the hard surface and then kick it into 2wd
if the diffs are limited slip diffs then the antislip action in the diffs will be pressed very hard together and will produce problems on turning corners
you may have success if you get all 4 wheels of the ground on a hoist and let the wheels spin and then try to engage 2wd
