Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2004 Mercury Mountaineer V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 65281 miles
I have had the front and rear wheel bearings replaced because of noise in the drive train. I am now told that the noise is in the rear differential. It makes the noise under acceration and while driviing. I am concerned it could fail on a trip. What repair do you recommend? What is the most most cost effective?
* I have changed the fluids according to the mfg recommendations.
* I contacted Ford and got no satisfaction! This noise started at about 39000 miles, I thought it was tire wear. Replaced tires at 62000 miles and it was not the solution. Also had bearings replaced at that time. Dealer then tells me there is a quite kit available?
Any help or suggestions appreciated.
