Trans Driveshaft Bearing?

The roaring noise in my front end seems to be the right (passenger side) driveshaft bearing where it comes out of the trans. Has anyone ever had to change one of these?

It might just be the c.v axle bearings worn. Any holes or tears in the boot covering it? Sometimes that noise comes from the wheel hub bearing.

Re: Trans Driveshaft Bearing?

How exactly did you narrow it down to the transmission output shaft bearing? It's not common at all for that bearing to go out unless you ran the transmission dry or low on fluid. Are you sure it's not the wheel bearing (hub)?

Re: Trans Driveshaft Bearing?

I thought it was the wheel bearing so I changed it. Problem didn't go away and is getting a little worse. The CV axles are about a year old. That is just the next possible spot going up from the wheel. When I turn right, even just to change lanes, it goes away. Going straight and turning left, the sound roaring noise is there.

Re: Trans Driveshaft Bearing?

Did you replace the axles with new parts, or were they re-manufactured? I went through four reman'd driver side axles before I decided to go with a new part. I've read about other's having this same issue. Don't assume that it's not the axle just because you replaced it last year. You're the one hearing the noise, so you're the best judge of where it's coming from. I would try another axle if it was me because it's so much easier to do that. I don't know for sure because I've never looked into it, but I'm pretty sure you need to open up the trans case to replace that bearing.

Re: Trans Driveshaft Bearing?

I don't know that changing lanes would change stresses on the internal bearings of the tranny all that much, but would certainly change them on the axle.

So if changing lanes causes noise to disappear...my next thought would be the axle, even though it's only a year old.
Like Mike said, unless you ran the tranny low on oil...


I'm with you Mike...I don't know how they can even call them remanufactured. Those things that hold the bearings in the knuckles (whatever you call them) wear over time so inserting new bearings to create a new spider gear...isn't really new. And they probably don't add metal and regrind the splines...

So far I've had good luck with re-man'd axles, but I see how that may not be the case next time.

Maybe putting the car up on jackstands and 'driving' it can allow you to hear what's what and where. I wonder if it's a dust shield..nah.

What do I look for in the CV axle?

Listen...it's not as much a visual thing as an audible thing.

Ok, I think I can figure that out.
