    Well last Sunday I was driving on the motorway, and under light load there was an odd noise coming from the rear. A bit like metal on metal,. it was also speed dependant. When coasting there is no noise at all.

    Got the car in the air Tuesday evening. Checked the diff oil, there is oil present and couldn't see any metal in the oil. There is a big magnet on the dif, so I guess most metal particles will be on that. I suspect its a bolt on the ring gear that may be loose and rubbing on ...

  5. Clutch thrust bearing

    My car has been making a bit of a noise recently, it used to do it just as the clutch is engaging. Almost like an elephant noise, or a large rubber belt noise. It actually started doing this about 2 weeks after the clutch change, possibly due to no greased on it other than what was supplied, are they meant to be greased further?

    Anyway, ordered a thrust bearing on Wednesday afternoon from rock auto, it was a decent price, even with shipping added it came to around 50. Its out for delivery ...
