Clicking or grinding noise when coasting or not accelerating. Rear Passenger wheel.


New member

I have an 89 Vanagon Camper with a manual transmission. I'm hearing a clicking or grinding noise from the rear passenger side that is evident when coasting or not accelerating. The noise seems to disappear when I accelerate. I've taken it to the shop and they say they've checked the bearings and brakes. They changed the gear oil and replaced the CV Axle on the right side because they originally thought it was the problem. The sound requires about 10-15 mins of driving before it starts. Once it starts it is loud and evident any time i coast or do not accelerate. Any thoughts?

thanks for your help.
