Default whining grinding noise 96DS

Have a 96 DS CC. When coasting down hill a whining, grinding noise ( hard to describe) comes out of the rear end. Doesn`t do it under power or at lower speeds, just at higher speeds and coasting down a slight or large incline.
Whats your thoughts. Motor or rear end gears?

Motor bearing...is that the one on the opposite end of the spline?

Yes its on the opposite end and also the female spline on the motor has a fiber bushing in iy that goes bad,you will be able to tell when you take the motor out.

Please educate me on motor centering bearing

I'm starting to think that a "sticky" needs to be made about the Bumper/Guide ring!

CARTTRADER have you checked the differential for metal in oil? You may have a cart that was not serviced correctly and run dry on lub and damaged bearings or gears in Differential rather than motor?? Just a thought????

Good point. No haven`t checked that yet. Actually haven`t received cart as yet. Its supposed to be delivered today. I`m hoping for just a bearing issue. I`ll check that when it gets here.
