carrier bearing / center bearing squealing got any ideas

I first when I heard this squeaking/squealing sound I thought it was a front hub bearing and after I had to put everything up on stands and actually get the drivetrain running I was able to trace it back to the carrier bearing. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] ***? I figure I have to pull it and see if the drive shaft is chewed up since I have no experience w/ it.
Anyone have experience w/ this before?

I noticed it some time ago and it appeared intermitant however I have no idea how long it had actually been doing this. i just happened to have the windows down and the radio off. Should I be prepared to have any drive shaft work done. Also, any difficulties in the job? Thanks for the input.

Re: carrier bearing / center bearing squealing got any ideas

first off, before you remove any of the drive shaft mark all the pieces so you can put it back just as it came off. while i had mine apart i went ahead and replaced all the u-joints (get the kind with grease fittings). i wish i had gotten my driveshaft assy. balanced while i had it off the truck. not that i noticed a vibration, but just for peace of mind.

Re: carrier bearing / center bearing squealing got any ideas

This is the TSB for your problem:

Article No. 03-22-2

NOISE - DRIVESHAFT CENTER BEARING NOISE - VEHICLES BUILT AFTER 6/1/2002
DRIVESHAFT - DRIVESHAFT CENTER BEARING NOISE - VEHICLES BUILT AFTER 6/1/2002

Publication Date: October 17, 2003

FORD: 2002-2003 F SUPER DUTY

ISSUE:
Some 2002-2003 Super Duty F-Series vehicles built after 06/01/2002, with a multi-piece driveshaft may exhibit a squeaking and/or squealing noise from the center bearing while driving. This noise is produced when the bearing seal rotates in the bearing outer race.

ACTION:
To service, replace the center bearing. Use a center bearing assembly with a white paint dot (built after 6/9/2003). Determine the style of the driveshaft per (Figure 1) and (Figure 2), then follow the appropriate Service Procedure below.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
NOTE: WHENEVER DRIVESHAFT REMOVAL IS NECESSARY, IT IS IMPORTANT TO PAINT MARK THE DRIVESHAFT TO THE TRANSMISSION (OR TRANSFER CASE) AND THE REAR AXLE. ADDITIONALLY, MARK A PAINT LINE THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF THE MULTI-PIECE DRIVESHAFT ASSEMBLY. THIS IS ESSENTIAL TO INSURE THE DRIVESHAFTS ARE REASSEMBLED IN THE SAME ORIENTATION AS ORIGINAL. FAILURE TO REASSEMBLE THE DRIVESHAFT IN ITS ORIGINAL ORIENTATION MAY RESULT IN AN UNBALANCED DRIVESHAFT CONDITION.

Re: carrier bearing / center bearing squealing got any ideas

I just picked up my truck from having the carrier bearing replaced. The bad news it was not covered under warranty. When I bought the truck I was told from the fan to the differential was covered by a 100,000 mile warranty. Now the dealer says only specific parts are covered. The carrier bearing is not one of the parts. The fact that there is a TSB makes me wonder if they purposefully excluded this part from the warranty.

BS like this does not build customer loyalty. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Re: carrier bearing / center bearing squealing got any ideas

Thanks for all the info on this. All the local stealers refuse to cover most anything on these after 36K. If I could work w/ the dealer out of SA where I picked it up then so be it but thats not the case.
I ordered a new one and it's cheaper and less of a hassle than trying to get the local theives to work on it. www.parts.com I"ve ordered a few parts here before and they are always extremely helpful.

Thanks again for all the help guys!

That's what you get for listening to a salesman. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]

Warranty is 3 yr/36k mi bumper to bumper and 5 yr/100k miles for the Engine (and a few other parts like fuel pump), no matter what the salesman says.

A good dealer would have covered it for you if you weren't too far out of your 3/36 warranty period. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Good info on the TSB guys! I'm doing mine today. Any tips on removing the old CB? I'm planning to use a cut-off wheel and "score" the bearing / race until I can split it w/o cutting / nicking the shaft.
