Is your Polaris General making a terrible whining noise from the front driveline in 2wd? Does it make the same noise but at a different pitch in AWD? If so, you could have issues with your front differential. But before you go out and buy a new front differential for your General, you should probably nail down where the noise is coming from first. Check the entire driveline from back to front to make sure your rig didn’t pick up a rock or stick that is rubbing against the machine. Next, see if you can disconnect the front drive line then run it again to see if it’s still making the same noise. If you’re able lift the front end up with the winch, get under there, clean the undercarriage well, and take a good hard look -- it may just be some trail debris under there. Carefully touch the driveline to see if the grinding has a coinciding vibration in the driveline. If it does it may be in the transaxle. If not, it’s probably the front differential. The driveline and front differential are always in motion when you’re General is in gear. The little 4x4 switch is actually an electromagnet that, when turned on, pulls the gears in the differential together, activating the front diff and the four-wheel drive.
