Anybody still running one of these dinosaurs? Do they have a whine or different noise to the normal 2wd wagon? Ours has had new diff bearings and both rear wheel bearings replaced but still has a noticeable whine. Thinking only thing left is transfer case or mebe front diff but noise appears to come from centre or the back of the car. Anybody replaced transfer case bearings?

Have you changed tyres lately. ? My Cross6 howls with one set of tyres, and swapped with another set is quiet.

I will try changing tyres but sounds more like a gear whine, the tone changes with power on to power off.
What tyres was yours fitted with when it howled?

Probably not this but it's an easy check, is there a noticeable difference in wear on the tires front to back? If they're slightly different rolling diameters from wear or you have a different sized tyre front to back it can cause issues.

Nup, tyres goon nick and even wear. I would have thought the viscus coupling would take up any slack in that area? I changed the oil in the transfer case and old oil was clean. The whine seems to be getting louder. I have yet to swap with another set of wheels to see if that helps but as I said the tone changes from throttle on to throttle off, if it was tyres the tone would only change with speed, so I'm pretty sure that won't change anything.

Not yet, not changed tyres though. Have just about given up and will keep driving to see if it gets worse. I still haven't heard if Adventra's have a whine compared to 2 wheel drive wagon. The transfer case has what looks like straight cuts gears and if so would have a whine anyway?
