i have a problem with my 85 aw11. Does it every morning i stick car into reverse and start reversing after about a meter or two i get a clunk/grates sound for a second then it stops. (all happening while still reversing)
Then i drive of straight in first slowly and it clunks/grates again then is fine till i have to reverse again.
Has been doing this for about a week now and have done at least 30 km on it since i noticed.
Have jacked car up and checked that nothing is loose and tried to replicate the sound by spinning both wheels forward and backward at same time and can not get it to have also rocked both wheels back and forth round the whole crown wheel i guess and no bad sounds like missing teeth or anything only noise i am getting is from the middle cvj on the long sided drive shaft which to me sounds a little bit grumbly.
Clunk/grate sounds like something locking up/jamming
What i am asking is have i chipped a tooth in the gearbox or is it the inner cvj that is causing my problems?
