For quite some time I've noticed a strange sound coming from what sounds like the front drivers side wheel area. The sound is a grinding or buzzing only when giving gas. I usually take my foot off as soon as I hear it. It seems to happen while trying to get traction. The video is in the snow, in reverse...watch the rpm. From inside the car it sounds different on video.
Im curious if this is my axle popped out of the differential.

That sounds like the traction control working to get you traction. I believe it uses the abs system to slow down the wheels that slip. Which is that creaking noise you hear. Which tire it comes from depends on which tire slips. Basically sounds normal if you are trying to get traction in the snow.

agree it does sound like the abs traction control.

would be helpful if you can get to solid ground and re-test, but i understand that may not be practical where you are...

Thanks guys. I would never have thought a sound like that could be normal. No wonder it takes me longer to get out of snow,,whenever I hear it I stop it from happening.
I have that delta sensor brake issue and it kind of sounds similar.
