Diff needs to come out, along with the full exhaust and prop also needs dropping..

Access is tight at the back of the diff..

@synthedup - what are the symptoms? Mine’s whining and not sure which bits to replace first...
I'll also be interested, as I also have developed a whining from the diff area.
