Dolzell Posted November 2, 2017 Share Posted November 2, 2017 I own an '02 legacy gt and just paid it off last year after putting an engine in it. Been a really great car but the other night I was leaving a friend's house and didn't have the radio on or anything and I heard a roaring noise. It went away when I pushed the clutch in so I made the mistake of assuming it was the throw out bearing. When I got to work (in a shop) I pulled my trans and replaced the throw out bearing. It was still doing it when I left so today I pulled it in and had someone in it to drive it in the air. Its loudest through the stethoscope at the bear on the tail of the transmission where there rear driveshaft goes in. I've called a transmission shop in the area and they said it's internal and the trans has to be disassembled to change it. Then quoted around $3000. Does this sound correct? Also, I just took on payments for a new motorcycle which put a lien on the car so can't afford that much to fix it so would it be possible to remove the rear drive shaft and cap it to make the car fwd? And would this have any long term damages? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
