View Full Version : noise from rear end?

Sometimes when i start to reverse i hear a huge like grinding/rubbing and feel a sort of vibration coming from the rear end. This usually only happens when i just start the car up in the morning but every now and then at other times. I think it might be my diff. but i dont know?

Darn, Sure sounds like it. Take the fill plug out and take a fluid sample. If there is shiney particles, then it sure is it.

That was my first guess when this began happening. But it is actually your rear brakes pads catching the rotors and making a horrible sound.
Do a search or check the www.240sx.org (http://www.240sx.org) FAQ.
Good luck.

i had the problem when i first got my car. changed the brake pads, shims and added the sound dampening stuff. only took about an hour to do all four corners.

remeber you have to turn the rear pistons. that part took a little while to figure out until i read the manual... heheheh http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif
