Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try help you with this.

Mark :

What speed do you hear this noise?

Customer:

It starts in first gear and gets louder as speed builds up it seems to be coming from the inner end of the nearside driveshaft at the dif end Ihave just ran it on stands .

Mark :

Sounds like it could be a diff bearing.

Mark :

Try jacking up just one side and running it to see if you can pinpoint it a bit more accurately.

Mark :

Also try running it up and then take it out of gear and freewheel to see if it changes sound.

Customer:

ok think your right it just the same in free wheel . Can this be done in place ?

Mark :

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think so.
