Bad Transfer Case Bearing

I have a bad bearing in my transfer case which is making quite a bit of noise. Would removing the front drive shaft take care of the noise until I can have it fixed, or would it still be spinning in there?

It depends on which bearing it is inside the transfer case.

Are you sure it's the t-case? There have been a rash of bad front drive shafts lately...they're getting to that age.

Pulling the shaft can't hurt, I'll tell you that.

NOTE: If you have AWD, you must put the t-case in 4wd to drive around without the front shaft in.

4wd, 4hi...same thing. You know what I mean. 4WD and AWD are different.

I have a humming sound coming from my Durango that is getting on my nerves.

It starts about 20mph and goes through to 55mph then I just can't hear it. I also feel a vibration through the steering wheel. I thought it was wheel bearings at first so I popped in a couple of those but no change.

The sound only happens during accelerating, does not change pitch at all while turning.

Could this be the front drive shaft/cv shaft? I have the awd so just to clarify, I can disconnect the front drive shaft and put the truck into 4wd, correct?

Once out, are there any ways to test this shaft to see if it is bad?
