Hi guys

I have a problem.

The S4 box that i put in my S2 has a wierd noise to it.

It appeared first time after doing a 100mph pass on the highway.

All gears shifts fine.

It doesnt seem to be speed dependent.

It seems to me to be some lose object, but which.

It's a used box i got with a sparecar when i was an FC guy, seems like its been rebuild as there was blue silicone sealant all over it.

Anyways, I made a small video with my phone, so you can hear it.



Open with realplayer or Quicktime

Thanks in advance

LOL i fixed it.

Turned out it was that protective piece of sheetmetal on the driveshaft which somehow got ripped off.

The rattle was of it spinning on the shaft.

I love cheap fix's
