Hi everyone.

I have a 2009 Jimny. It has just started to make a loud rumble noise from the back of the car. Sounds a bit like an extractor fan above an oven! Started during a short journey yesterday, but last month I was laning on Salisbury Plain. Did go through some puddles and hit the towbar on a dropoff once.

Any suggestions on what could be wrong? Many thanks all.

If you still have the original jack in the back might need tightening up, some times they work lose and move about

Is the noise subject to change depending upon how you are cornering? If so could be wheel bearing if not could possibly be diff carrier bearings?

My exhaust used to rattle against my towbar bracket so I cut a triangle section out of the bracket...?

is It Sunday Yet?

Mine made a rumbly bearing noise from the back, I couldn't find any problem with the back wheel bearings, and I even got a second opinion- "It is the differential, be alight for thousands of miles until it gets really bad though, then it will fail".

Swapped the diiff out and it was exactly the same. :pinch:

Few weeks later a front wheelbearing collapsed, and after I changed it, the noise from the back had gone. :ohmy:


Sounds travel.....:whistle:

Check all 4 wheelbearings. ;)

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Thanks for the replies.

The noise seems to come from the middle bottom edge of the rear door,rather than the wheels. With all the other noises a Jimny makes, opening the windows does not help track it down!

Is the test of wheel bearings just to rock the wheels by hand?

I was hoping it was just the exhaust loose, but seems it may get expensive!

The mechanic I know is on holiday at the moment, so hoping to find the problem before I see him.

Pull up the wooden panel in the boot and check the jack storage area for things rattling around and for rust holes in the boot floor allowing sound in.

Check the rear exhaust silencer for holes and mounting security. Is the exhaust blowing?
