Default Re: 2003 316cdi diff noise

I tightened the pinion nut slightly but no difference to the whine.

I'm going to do a diff fluid change and have a good look at the internals.

When I give it just enough throttle to not accelerate but also not decelerate it is quiet and also has a whine on acceleration as well, just not as noticeable as when decelerating.

I recently removed a barrier I had between the drivers section and the back of the van, hence the whine is much more noticeable now.
