concerning noise

hey all, im having a (hopefully) small problem that i hope someone can help me with. whenever i start to slow down from about anywhere over 30mph i starting hearing what sounds like a spinning, grinding noise from right around the firewall in the center of the vehicle. im driving an 04 Rubicon with a manual trans. if anyone has any ideas what this might be please let me know. thanks in advance all.

i would hope not. it only has 23000 miles on it. but that was a concern of mine. dont know if it matters or not but it makes the noise no matter if i am holding the clutch down or not.

hmm - could be the throw out bearing...

But its only when you are decelerating? What about at an idle or taking off?

well my small problem just got bigger today. called my dealership to set up an appointment under my extended warranty only to find out i dont really have one. gotta love those shady dealers that tell you the jeep has one when it really does not. so now any repair comes out of pocket. if anyone has any other ideas what this might be and how i can make this repair less expensive please let me know.

how nice eh? I'd say ask for a quote and see how much $ will be to find the problem.. For me my dealer said 25 bucks to find what a problem was (rattle in my case). When they find the problem then you can go from there.

Does this noise match with your wheel spin? Hopefully there might just be something in one of your pads thats causing it after you apply the brakes.

well the noise comes and goes so i dont think it is in brakes. does not sound like that area either. but now that i am driving with the doors off and top down i am hearing the noise alot more. it is happening when i accelerate as well. right now i am taking the bitter with the sweet til i figure out what to do.

I'm not much on jeeps yet. but sounds like a similar problem I had quite a while back with a 69 camaro. (ok, quite a while back ~grin~) come to find out that my tranny oil was just about empty. Once I fixed the leak and filled it up, the sound was gone.
