Re: Rear end noise 2005 Baja Turbo MT

Wanted to circle back and give this issue closure, for me anyway. I have not gone back in a second time as what noise I still had appears to have stopped just by driving ... probably about 50 to 75 miles some of which was hard left and right turns. So my grinding noise was indeed the dust shield.

Re: Rear end noise 2005 Baja Turbo MT

FWIW - Looking at the dust shield in the area indicated in the NASIOC post I saw shiny area where rubbing was likely occurring. So I got my grinder and did a little surgery trimming the dust shield area that was shinny and finished it by painting it black. The grinding noise did stop but only when g...

Re: CV axles for turbo 5-speed?

I know this is an old post, but I'm trying to order axles for the rear of my 2005 MT Turbo Baja ... are the rear axles the same for AT and MT? All I'm finding online are rear axles that specify they are for Turbo AT Baja. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
TIA,
-Izzy

New Baja Owner in Maple Glen, PA

Hi Everyone,
I picked up a 2005 Blue 5 spd Turbo. Mileage is a bit high at 225K+ and it needs some TLC, but I can tell you ... It is fun to drive and it ain't no slouch!
Hope to meet some other local scoobytruck owners.
Regards,
-Izzy
