vr ute & vs sedan
i need advise, ive posted my problems before with this ute but have yet to have a response :help:
i have now located the noise to my diff its a whirring kind of noise thats driving me INSANE!!!!
it seems to be where the prop goes into the diff, today i drained the oil cleaned out the inside of the diff fitted new gasket and new oil and the dam noise is still there although it has quietened it a little but when your just rolling with no throttle its really annoying, i put in the oil recomended by autobahn 85w140 i think its but does this oil lubricate the bearing as well?
is there an additive i can buy to add to it to quieten it down or is this gonna be a major surgery job?
PLEASE HELP!!!!! i love my ute but this noise is driving me insane

Find a new diff center at a wreckers. Hell of a lot easier than rebuilding your current one.
