I assume you have checked that there is enough oil in the rear end.
I would then jack up the car to examine the wheel bearing for play.
You could also, with jackstands under the axle, let the car run in gear 
so that the wheels are turning and see if you can locate a noise.
If only one wheel turns, you can tweak the handbrake mechanism at the 
axle to put brake force only to one wheel to make the other one turn.
I haven't gone any further than that, opening the housing, etc.
