Transmission slop

Recommended Posts

Ok I've got a 300TDi 130 with 95,000 on the clock there is about an 1/8 of a turn of slop in the transmission, I.e I can twist the rear prop an 18th of a turn when underneath the vehicle, its twice as much slop as the front. It always has had a bit of clunk all the time I've owned it. I'm not even sure its getting any worse I probably just didn't have the stereo as loud on way home tonight!

Is it any thing to be worrying about? Is it a known fault? What do I do to fix it? and how much is it likely to cost roughly??!!! Questions, questions questions LOL I'd just appreciate some oppinions.

Thanks very much

That amount of play is quite normal for a Salisbury axle. Don't worry about it. Learn to drive smoothly.


I've always driven it smoothly, I think i've only noticed it tonight as I was knackered coming home and was sat in traffic!! and have convinced myself it was getting worse lol!!
