« on: January 02, 2012, 21:08:02 »
my 1994 soft dash 300  tdi manual, is making noise when pulling away  it started when pulling away quickly in first gear it is know happening in second as well . when accelerating away ,no problem when cruising.
ihave jacked up the car to check half  shafts an uj and all apair to be ok
there is a little play in the rear diff but not to much ,there was some play on front output on the transferbox (borg warner)
have not checked today but after 360 mile trip today seems to be tranferbox looking to be the problem , any sugestion

ahh,now you put it like that,could be the chain slippin in the transfer box,assuming its the borg warner box,need to make sure it ent the viscous hub seized tho,thats in the box too,but usually it would make that kind of noise unless on a lock and moving

Brass bits mostly in the selector mechanism from what I remember, it could have been running out of adjustment but by now it could be well damaged.
