Hi Folks

Was sat in the rear of the missus c class yesterday.

Noticed when the car is cold a slight rumble from under me ( rear diff ?) when changing gear.

When car is warmed up, nothing

Worth changing diff oil ? Or suspect rubber bush on prop ?

Car on 160k with excellent history.

On another note gears feel like they are slipping when cold, when warm its fine. Gearbox fluid done 10k ago

Worth changing the conductor plate + fresh oil / filter ?

Would love to take it to steve at prestige, but funds very tight at the moment, due to lack of work
