Purchased a 2010 AWD Highlander, There is a whining noise coming from the rear end, possibly the differential. Is this normal in all Highlanders? If not can someone tell me what can be done to solve the problem.

    How old are your tires? I have ran into this issue and almost let a mechanic change wheel bearing before I guy gave me this tip. since then I have seen the issue twice more and in both tires made the difference

    Noise was present before and after I installed new tires. When I lift foot off accelerator the whining noise stops.

    Thanks for the response.
