    Default Fault diagnosed :(

    Ok. My fault has been diagnosed as the diff in the gearbox where the driveshafts meet in the gearbox. Apparently this means a gearbox change.

    Anyone know where I can get a reconditioned gear box where they will part ex my old one?

    Cheers

    Russ

    When rotating the wheels he said the diff was grinding and that the gearbox would need changing. Is there any other thing it could be?

    Sorry to be a pain, but looking at the Haynes manual it could something simple like the intermediate drive shaft bearings, which don't look integral to the gear box. Is this right?
