Hi all I have a 1993 standard land rover defender 200 tdi hard top which i have owned and maintained about 8 years Lately i have welded up a hole /split in the exhaust downpipe by the support on the side of the engine as it had split and was what i thought was the cause of a really quite loud and irritating metal squeak/rattle/squeal (?) unfortunately i have put the exhaust all back together and that noise is still there just sounds like a loose downpipe or the like BUT its hard to pinpoint even where or what end of the car its coming from when your in car driving. my other half said it sounded as if coming from back wheel when she listened as i pulled into garage but just stripped the back wheels off and nothing to report there brakes ok(drums) and wheel bearings sound quiet when turning the wheels by hand quickly. what i noticed while driving it only happens as you take foot of the accelerator when IN gear but if i am going along road and foot on gas its not there and also when i am travelling along road and put into neutral and take foot of the gas it is also NOT there Have done a check by pulling around the propshafts and they seem tight with little play. I do have a weep of oil from the handbrake drum but awaiting a new seeal and possible trandsfer case bearing as the only other thing was when i am travelling and put it in neutral i can feel what seems like an out of balance bearing may be in the handbrake drum?? any thoughs on what may be the cause Lastly before i put the car back of the 2 rear axle stands is it ok/safe to put the front up as well on 2 stands and run in gear ...i am sure this ok but just want to know as never done it thanks and appreciate any helpful advice
