2007 Toyota Sequoia: Front Differential Noise?


Recommended Posts

We had a 2007 Toyota Sequoia with a complaint of a growl from the front while driving. You would bet money that the noise was from the front differential. In fact, we ran it up in the air in 4 wheel drive and you could hear the noise from the front differential. Or, what sounded like the front.

 

We took it out of 4 wheel drive, and ran the real wheels only. The tech inside the car shouted out of the window, “The noise is still there”. After listening to the rear differential, we found that the noise was actually coming from the left rear. We pulled the bearing apart and it was filled with rust and scored.

 

The left rear bearing solved the problem, but we got initially fooled.

 

Just thought I would pass this info to everyone...

We have found some with B) water in the rear differential that ruined the bearings. The rear fluid looking like a milk shake. I think that a tsb covers that on some models. Even the owners of the vehicle thought that the noise was coming from the front.

      Are Wheel Alignments in 8 Minutes Possible?
    • By Joe Marconi
      The word OSHA makes many shop owners cringe. 
      I was lucky enough years back to have my insurance agent suggest I perform a voluntary OSHA inspection. A private company did it at the time.   
      They found tons of violations; some we knew would be flagged, but most we did not. 
      Have you ever had an OSHA inspection? And what can shop owners do to protect themselves?

      This past summer set record heat in many parts of the country. As a former tech, I know what it's like to work 8 to 10 ten hours in 90-plus degree temperatures with unbearable humidity.
      Does air conditioning help with morale and productivity? Is the investment worth the benefits?
