Customer Question
Hi, I have a...

Hi, I have a 2010 Pajero.. there is a noise from the left rear side at times... Like teo metal parts rubbing together. Showed it to a mechanic who said he can't say until he opens the axle clippers and also not sure about the cost. I have had a bad experience with car repairs, both at deskerdhips and otherwise. Can you help me understand the problem?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pajero yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, I haven't attempted to repair it myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes.. the mechanic who inspected said it could be as minor as an oil change or so.ething major. Told me not to avoid high speeds.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

In the axle... Not sure... I bought this car one year ago and the previous owner hardly drove it.

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

basically something mechanical has worn out and is grinding as a result

it could be gearing, it could be a bearing, etc

it will need to be raised and inspected and then the exact nature of the failure will dictate the costs associated with the repair.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
