    Front drivetrain noise

    Ok here it is....at about 20 hours, I started to hear a rattling noise coming from the front of my machine. I can hear it best at about 15 mph. It sounds like rocks being rattled in a bucket. I took it to the dealer and they could not find a visible problem. They greased it heavily and that seemed to help for about an hour of driving. The noise returned.
    I am going in to talk to them again (they are very open and supportive) to see if we can figure it out.
    Is there a slip yoke on the front that could be worn? Noise like that has to lead to a failure.
    Any thoughts would be welcome.
    Thanks

    I had a noise like that in mine from New. I found it when I wasn't even looking for it. Turned out to be a bolt that wasn't tightened at all just had the nut turned on. Connecting the front frame to the roll cage in front of the steering wheel.

    Found it when I sealed the cab.

    I will look, but the grease stopped the noise for about an hours driving before it returned, thanks.

    ELD, greased what ? if it isnt a u-joint, did the dealer check the front brake pads ? Not much to build a case on.............

    They said they greased everything real well. I can actually move each brake caliber by hand, is that normal?

    Calipers should not 'shake, 'rattle or 'roll but loose pads will.

    I just watched a video about brake pad rattle. I will check for that when I get back to the farm.
    The part that confuses me is the rattle disappeared after greasing it and then returned after an hours driving

    My dealer just ordered me a new front driveline assembly. However, there are none available for two weeks. That says something in itself I would say.
