Well it all started with a bit of a knock back that it always had when I powered off.
one day I noticed a few drops of oil where it was parked but then forgot about that.
Then my son borrowed the car away for a while to use as a daily drive.
He mentioned it made a bit of noise when you powered off and I said it always does that.
Then he called up and said it has left a great big puddle of oil under the diff.
On inspection two bolts in the rear housing were missing, two were nearly all the way out and all the rest were loose...very strange in deed.
There was no oil left so I did up all the bolts and refilled it with oil....as you would
Took it for a short drive it seemed OK until I drove it home up the M1. As soon as I powered off it vibrated quite a lot .... so the diff is buggered!
Has anyone had anything similar? Seemed strange that the bolts all came loose?
Also what is the best diff to put in a 2+2 for general driving, city and country runs.....a standard 2+2 diff I am thinking???
