Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is Michael, I would like to help you.
Have you noticed the virbation in the steering wheel?
Okay, thank you very much.
Does the noise change with the speed of the engine, or rather the speed?
How does the noise behave when driving around a corner?
Okay, the one with the foot on the clutch is an important clue.
Since the device is gone after lifting the front wheels, the clutch can be excluded as a cause (the clutch release bearings make similar symptoms, but the noise must also be present when the car is lifted).
Since the noise is gone when the car is lifted, it has something to do with the power transmission. It can be assumed that these noises are possibly due to a defective differential in the gearbox. This is relieved when cornering and when interrupting the power transmission by stepping on the clutch.
You should take an oil sample out of the gearbox and leave it through a paper bag. If the differential is defective, fine metal chips must be visible in the handkerchief.
I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
