I believe it was the broken gear. My mechanic said he could fix it
while it was being re-bushinged. Apaprently, he was wrong :-(
He tried three times, once to repair, twice to replace, and he
couldn't get the right parts. I'm going to get them from the dealer
and drop it off, with the swaybar AudiDudi should be getting me (:-)
for some more work.
