gearbox noise

Recommended Posts


im new, just bought a defender 90 county sw. its a 200tdi on 171k


when i pull off, there is a rumbling noise, it gets a bit louder as the revs increase untill either it goes away, or the revs overpower the rumbling noise.

ive been told the half shaft seal is leaking, and have a new on order, so the previous owner has been topping up the diff oil every few weeks. would low level diff oil cause this? or is it something else?

when i rev it out of gear, the noise is gone.

it makes the noise when the diff/4wd is engaged also.

thanks in advance.
