ou have a couple of choices. pou can take it apart and look for any abnormal wear, ring and pinion backlash, various bearing damage. or you can take it to a qualified tech to have them diagnose it for you. If it whines on accelleration, it can be a pinion bearing or the ring and pinion clearance is too close. If it whines on decelleration, either the pinion bearing or ring and pinion clearance is too wide. If it whines or growls on turns maybe the axle bearings. The carrier bearings can cause noise in either of the above conditions or all the conditions. Good luck.



Being way2old is why I need help from younger minds

I'd check it sooner than later. If it's a broken tooth, the differential can lock up on you and could be very dangerous if it does so.
