Loose junk in the trunk (boot)?
In a message dated 4/29/2009 7:49:14 P.M. Central Daylight Time,
I have had a number of good suggestions, most of which I have checked out.
- Broken spring or loose spring clip - None of my spring leaves were
broken. I did find a loose clip and tightened it but that made no
- Rear spring U-bolts - They are ok.
- Rear shocks - They are tight.
- Drive shaft contacting the hand brake cable - It was not.
- Drive shaft contacting the nuts which hold the hand brake lever - It was
not. There were no obvious shiny spots on the on the drive shaft to
indicate that it had been hitting anything.
- Splines on the wheel and hub extension - These are OK.
- U-joints on the driveshaft - I don't feel any play in the drive shaft.
What should I be looking for here?
- Rear wheel bearings - I don't feel any play there and they don't make
noise when I spin the rear wheels by hand. Is there any other way to check
them without taking them apart?
Any other suggestions?
