Hey yall. One of my friends has an 09' Honda Rubicon Forman. When he was driving it yesterday it was making this really wierd noise. It sounds like gears in the differental are grinding but they aren't. We checked the fluid in the dif. and it was full. Could a bearing be out or bad and cause that kind of noise? It even makes the noise when it is off and you roll it by hand. If anyone has an idea please speak up!!!!
Thanks,
Blake

Is the noise coming from the front or back?

Could be the bearings, then, but I would check the rear brakes first to make sure nothing is wrong.

Oh I never thought of that. What exactly could be wrong with the rear brakes?

I don't really know, but I would look at the brakes first, just in case. Something might have come loose inside the brake panel. Just a thought, before you tear into the diff bearings.
