Re: expensive 4kq tranny noises??
I took a closer look at things, and as Huw pointed out and as I could
clearly see, there is NO way it could be the tranny.. DUH it doesn't go
back that far. So I looked for other culprits. I at first didn't suspect
the driveshaft support (the rubber part) as it was replaced under 40k ago,
but I guess that is a long enough time for them to fail. The rubber
indeed appears to have the typical cracking that rubber gets as it
ages. Also, I noticed that while sitting, the shaft sits a bit low in the
support. This of course could be attributed to the weakness in the
rubber, but I suppose the weight of the shaft would naturally compress
things a bit. How low is it supposed to sit?
Secondly, I took a look at the e-brake just to make sure it wasn't the
culprit, and I noticed that there is a little bracket that is perhaps
suppost to hold the cable (before it splits into the two cables going to
each disc), but I'm not sure. It could also be a bracket for the stock
exhaust system, but I put in a $$ system a while ago, and it may just not
use that one... Anybody got any ideas?
