    OK lets go back over the incident do you recall any noises or bangs from under as if the fault came from within I seriously doubt being able to drive the car even a few hundred yards without a crown wheel or layshaft, seriously if a box lets go, it's time to call a cab! So, what could have happened? debris hit? manhole cover rock? is my suspicion hence the increasing whine. it is very rare and incredibly unlucky, I am so sorry to hear of your misfortune. I hope it gets resolved easily and affordably

    I blew the diff on my friends corsa when your diff goes (similar to your description) one of the wheels will lock up when turning and will bang and clatter all over the place

    yep was ****ed all fixed now got a recon box 440 fitted at my work 550 all in
    diff was chipped and the few other gear cogs braking up loads tiny bits in there . new box was 1200+vat .
    vx hq said they might be able get some good will if i took it a dealer and had the look at it and go from there but i would have to pay for that and i know they would have said they wiil have to take the box out and strip it first that alone would have cost a lot . and then if got any good will sure they prob would have been just parts and i would have pay for the rest and knowing them would have cost lots more . just glad its fixed will be sending a letter to them tho and copy of the bit and tell them how poor i think it was that something like that has gone at this age and mileage
