I have had my crv for nearly six months now, a few months ago, whilst I was driving.idling in slow moving traffic the car made a strange grinding noise from the drivers side. It sounded like a metal grinding noise that went with the turning round of the wheels. It did this at below10 mph and only on a certain part of a road which was a slight hill. It didn't do it more with turning the steering wheel it just did it whilst moving slowly and never when it was at normal driving speed. However I took it to the garage where we tried to reproduce the sound but of course it wouldn't make it, and they said everything looked fine. It's only done it a few times.
Well I haven't heard it for a few months now, but we now have several inches of snow on the ground so I needed to take the car out to get some petrol.
The car worked well in the snow but that grinding noise is back. I had the car in second gear( it's an auto) and it did it pretty much constantly going to the garage and not so much on the way back only if i was going realy slow, so I am presuming its the four wheel drive?
The garage seemed to think it wasn't the rear diff, as they said that happened on the model before mine. I have the 2007 newer model of the one with the wheel on the back.
Does anyone have any ideas?
