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.
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.
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.
