I have a noise now in my '94 Defender ST that I just cannot identify. It seems to be coming from either the right rear wheel or the rear diff. It sounds like a hamster in a squeaky wheel and only happens when the wheel is turning, under power or coasting, the noise is the same. Brakes on or off--make no difference either. It also squeaks randomly, in other words the rhythm does not seem to be tied to speed of the spinning wheel and either goes away at highway speed or I just can no longer hear it!! It really sounds like a hamster with a limp in a wheel. Any ideas out there?
Wherever I go...there I am.
