Clicking noises

I was out riding the cat and got into a really good mud pit. I was trying to climb up the bank and got her in a bind. The rear axle started making a clicking noise...almost like when trying to put it in gear and its hung up between the two. Is this bad??? What is it??? What caused it???

After being put on the hook and yanked out, it didnt make the noise again until I was trying to climb a rock bank. It started clicking again after getting in a bind.

Also, when locking in the 4wd all 4 wheels turn when the unit is off the ground but when its in a mud hole and burried its almost like it has limited slip or something is broke because one of the wheels will turn an the other one wont. This will alternate from time to time when this happens. Any advise or thoughts on this issue???

Sounds to me like the axle is popping out or not all the way locked into place. Just a thought. Hang in there, these guys no their stuff and will be chiming in soon.

I second that. Sounds like a cv. What model prowler are we talking here?

Good question. Which model is this ? Is it a clicking or ratcheting noise ? Cuz the 700XTX has a limited slip rear diff. (turf tamer) If this is the model that you own, there is no problem at all, just normal rear diff noise.

Thanks for the replies. This is the 2009 prowler xtz 1000 model. The noise is more of a fast pace ratching noise. It only does this when it is in a bind.

They have upgraded the rear ends for the XTZ, see if you can get a warranty upgrade.

This is from the PTL (peak torque limiter) in the rear gearcase. It'll slip / ratchet if under heavy strain or load. If I remember right, it slips at approx 585 ft/lbs. Once it starts to ratchet, it'll probably happen more often too. Check at the dealer for the updated gearcase that Glamis mentioned
