WJ, Ring & Pinion of front axle makes noise.

The Ring & Pinion of front axle of my Grand Cherokee (WJ, year 2002) makes noise (whining).
An adjustment can solve the problem or I need to change the parts?
Thank you.
Regards.

Not sure if i will be of any help on this. Did you already check the fluid level of the diff and if there are any metal flakes in the fluid My next step would be to open the diff to see if there is any damage or excessive wear on the ring and pinion. Also the bearings can cause a whining noise.

Yes I checked.
The oil is clean, and there is no metal flakes.
When I really want, I disassemble the differential, check the bearings and wear of the ring and pinion.
Thank you.
