My husband had the Vue on a lift at a local garage. All four wheels were off of the ground. This is an AWD vehicle and the front wheels rotated freely. The back wheels did not rotate freely all the way around. About after 270 degrees of rotation there was drag, about 45 degrees, and than it rotated freely. Both rear wheels did this. They figured that this might be normal for AWD? If not let me know, and if not what should the wheel rotation feel like?
They ran the Vue on the lift and could not hear any chirping sounds. Could this be because the wheels were not under load of the car? They feel that the noise probably is coming from the rear passenger CV shaft/axle at the differential. There seems to be about 1/16+" more end play and more shaft wobble on the rear passenger CV axle as compares to the rear driver shaft. The driver rear axle seems more firm with minimal end play and shaft wobble. They feel the early chirping is coming from the rear passenger CV axle? Your comments would be very helpful.
