I just got a 2019 and its starting to make a rubbing grinding noise on my front end and ideas what it could be? I can hear it and fill it. after stopping or even slowing down it will stop.

Just changed wheel bearings and it’s still making the noise and grinding. Differential? Front-end?

put it up on good jacks with it stable. Run in gear and listen to where it is coming from. I would tie it down for sure. May just be a rock caught in the brakes.

I had to grease my spindle bushing on the drivers side. It was making a grinding noise.

It was the right spindle bearing/brass bushing. Thanks!

The noise was coming from the right spindle bearing/brass bushing. I just didn’t go in quite deep enough on the bearing!
Also, there are grease zircs on the rear wheels that we didn’t know about!

there should be 6 grease points if you haven't found them all yet.

zerks. Two on the sides that are easy to see. One on each drive shaft and the two on the rear wheels that you found.

If you use Facebook, join one of the roxor groups. There's a lot of good info there.

@Partyman1971: you mention "two on the sides that are eaay to see". Where exactly are these two zirks? Is it one of these? If not, just add to this list.
I am aware of zirks at:
- 2 leaf spring bolts, front axle
- 2 leaf spring bolts, rear axle
- 2 rear axle bearings (1 left, 1 right)
- 1 drive shaft, front
- 1 drive shaft, rear

@Ridem32: not sure what happened to my post... I replied... maybe didn't hit the post button.

As the precious poster said, they are just a few inches in from the brake drums on the axles.

There is a very small hole (1/16 or smaller) at the top of the axle above each zirk fitting. Once you pump in enough grease, a thin threat of grease will come from these holes. It took about 15-20 pumps on my Roxor until grease came out the top.
