Rumbling noise from rear
« on: 12 February 2018, 18:56:26 »

Speed dependent rumbling noise, but doesn't change when going left or right.

Wheel bearing still family favourite?  If it was a prop bearing, that would be a much higher frequency presumably?

I suppose there are lots of bearings in the transmission that could rumble if they felt like it - prop shaft centre bearing, diff input bearing and diff output bearings. I've never known one fail. Am I just lucky?

I was convinced my diff was rumbling for a while.. Until I noticed the exhaust blow just ahead of the back box. ::)
