General Maintenance & Repairs - Rear axel clunking sound!PLEASE HELP!
06-30-2006, 03:38 PM
I've been gettin a rattle from the passenger rear ever since i changed my rotors, set the handbrake lifted the rear & removed wheel,calliper housing & rotor & there seems to be a slight knock & movement of the axle within the shaft! didn't know if this was normal due to everything being removed!
Coated lca,phr bearings & everything else i could think of that would make a noise with grease & bolted every thing back up! Thats when i decided to pull on the wheel & there was a god awful knocking sound, pulled the handbrake up & it's hardly noticable.
Is my rear axle stuffed or is this easily curable? Got a car show on sunday & don't think it's gonna make it.

If it was a wheel bearing ya should have more than a rattle and god owful griding is more like it,rattles are a pain to find just have to run into the problem sometimes!

I'm pretty sure it's something to do with that wheel! It handles & seems to accelerate ok! when my g/f dropped me off at work the other day it sounded like loose bolts rattling about very loud! & there seems to be about 2-3mm of movement back & forth within the shaft where it knocks against the back plate causing a similar sound!
I had to knock of the stock rotor with a rubber mallet, it was so rusted on, could i have damaged/disloged something? also the parking brake also hits the back plate could this be it as it would be pressed against the inside of the rotor with the handbrake up?

OK! wheel bearings or have i damaged the clip holding the axle & will i be ok to drive it tomorrow? i don't really want to f**k things up even more!
plus what will i need to do to fix this?

64 veiws & only one post! surely i'm not the only one to have had this problem, all i need to know is can i pull the cover & fix this or is it gonna cost me money?
I don't think the axle should be sliding in & out like that & if it's causing the wheel to do the same while the cars in motion i don't fancy putting mine or my g/fs life at risk!

You can pull the cover of and slide the axles out and check them thats the only real way to know good luck!

The axles are going to move in and out a little just to make up for the clearance between the c-clip and the bearing.
