Clunk/Clank noise when shifting
I've searched all over the net and couldn't find nothing and hoping to figure out my problem.
When shifting, there's a metal clank sound coming from the rear end of the car somewhere, happens as I let the clutch out. It'll also make it when reversing as well.
Only noticed the noise when I put a new clutch in which required removal of the gearbox, prop shaft and PPF frame.
The noise is like taking two metal spatulas and smacking them against one another.
I've crawled underneath to check all the bolts are tight, the U-joints in the prop shaft appears fine, not loose and no slack.
I've also been driving it for the past 6 months so far with this noise and so far nothing has broken and everything seems like its working fine, but just this noise, its irritating me
Really stumped at what it could be, I've got a 1.6 viscous LSD which I'm suspecting its on its way out but I'd like to pinpoint the root cause of this sound.
