Hi All

I hope you can help. I've had a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee since last August. About a month ago, it started to make a whining noise when it reaches 30mph.

The noise goes up and down in pitch depending on how fast the jeep is going.

If I turn on the overdrive button, the noise stops. Turn it off again, and the noise starts again.

The rear bearing was changed about two years ago, and the garage tells me that this still looks in good working order. They are a little confused as to what else might be causing the problem.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? A call to jeep technical hasn't prompted a reply as yet, and I'm not holding my breath.

Since you have a 98 I am pretty sure you have a 44A ..Therefore the whine is probobly wear in the diff.. The bearings wear the aluminum after a while and make that noice.. Bring it to the Dealership.. I think there may be a recall ...(I could be wrong about that.. But its easy enough to check..)
