Chirp or Squeak from rear of 2012 SRX
I own a 2012 SRX Performance AWD. At @17K miles I noticed a chirping (almost sounds like a bird chirp) coming from the rear of my SRX, specifically when the vehicle was still cold and at speeds between 15 MPH to 35 MPH. Noise stops when vehicle stops (i.e. it is not related to motor and appears to definitely be related to drive system) and begins again when vehicle hits @15 MPH. The dealer replaced the rear axle seals at @20K miles, claiming there was a TSB (August 2013). The noise was gone after the repair, however it came back again @22K miles. I will be taking the vehicle back to the dealer again. The dealer has treated me well, so I have no complaints with them. I am just frustrated that the noise is back again.
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced a similar problem and what the cause and fix was?
