Best Answer

The transmission on a Saab 900 is mounted directly on the bottom of the engine. That clanking is likely coming from a broken tooth on a gear.

What causes clicking noise from a transfer case on a 2000 dodge ram 1500. Ive checked the Universal joints and they are fine. Clicking is definitely coming from inside the case only in 4WD.?

Why there is noise from the heater blower on a 2001 Sunfire?

Is it a mechanical noise, or an air movement noise? If it's mechanical, it might be that the bearings in the fan or motor are dying. If it's more of a wind/blowing noise, it might be that you have a loose or broken heat delivery duct. If you stick your head under the dash, you might be able to hear and see where the problem lies.

86 aerostar frozen wipers got them unstuck now left with nasty vibrating noise and pulsing with no wipers anyone know the fix to this?

Are you saying that when you turn on the wipers you hear a loud vibrating noise and the noise pulses but the wiper blades do not move across the windshield? If that's the case your wiper motor assembly has probably been damaged and will need to be replaced.AnswerYou are going to have to get the motor replaced. Not sure if the motor is on the firewall on this unit but most are under the cowl. AnswerI just did this repair. The wiper motor is under the plastic part just below the windshield. It's located towards the middle. Sometimes it is a tight squeeze to get in there, but once you replace it you'll notice a big difference.
