Mercedes Benz Sprinter 416cdi 4X4 2003 - Very Strange Noise!

Postby 4X4Sprinter » Sat Oct 17, 2020 9:12 am

Drives fine & with no issues, and then after 40mins of driving a strange noise starts from underneath passenger footwell.
Noise is like dry metal grinding together & turns more creaky & squealy when coming to a stop.
Noise stops when I turn left or right & resumes when going straight.
Noise accelerates with speed & decelerates when I slow down.
So - the noise is heat related? As it takes 40 mins of driving for it to start?
Metal expanding? Oil thinning?
I have checked the wheel bearings.
I have also checked the oil level in the front transfer case.
Very Confused.......
Any advice?
