Booger got my rear spoiler back on but inevitably another mishap may now be looming.....
Basically my car has started making a clunking, kinda like a steroid abusing wood pecker
, sound at varying speeds & such like. My first thought was that it was just something stuck to wheel or sumin but sadly not. It was definately related to speed of vehicle as it was in time with rotation of the wheels which was measurable by my ear at slower speeds.....
Next thought it might be wheel bearing or sumin but way too extreme & dispight early thoughts dont think it\'s coming from wheels. Bloke who fitted spoiler reckoned it was exhaust or drivetrain related which thinking about it on way home made me think diff? Is there anyway this could be related to exhaust+diff, coming into contact or similar?
Symptoms are as i said relative to speed of vehicle & seemed to do it more notably when clutch was engaged when changing gear etc, & less so when accelerating...also a kinda squeaking at certain speeds which i wood normally of said was the readdition of the spoiler & associated rattles but it did also seem related to movement of car/wheels so presume thats same thing. At slower speeds did also "feel" like it was coming from the rear centre possible....could this be other than diff me thinks?
One thing i noted before these symptoms was a kinda hissing coming from the rear of vehicle which sounded like & i thought was just the sound of the rain water on the tyres but still did it when i came to a halt was a bit disconcerting but i figured it may of been the vehicle behind as it didnt last that long but does seem a coincidence too far now i think about it.
Still puts the power down well so not like it\'s poo\'d itself Brian stylee
So any thoughts on what it is could it be sumin as silly as a leak which has drained all or some of diff fluid & all it needs is topping up or are we on the road to boogered diff & needing to replace or any other potential causes, exhaust or otherwise?
