Q: making a whine noise left rear when speeds above 55mph, let off gas, gets worse on 2005 Subaru Baja

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
my subaru is making a 'whinning' noise coming from left rear when at speeds around 60mph, when you let off gas, it makes the most whine noise, like something needs to be oiled? makes noise more when weather is hotter?
please help, thank you, barb ley

Your Subaru is 4WD, check for signs of leakage at the rear differential, top up oil if required. I have seen the rear wheel bearings go bad. Check the tire on the left rear see if it could even be unusual tire wear causing the sound but you will probably find it is a bad wheel bearing.
