Driveshaft Tinkle Tinkle


The GT has a tinkle tinkle sound coming from the driveshaft when taking off or reversing, especially when the wheels are turned to the left or right, it only happens occasionally but is getting more frequent
Has this happened to anybody else and/or does anybody know the cause

Re: Driveshaft Tinkle Tinkle

I've noticed a similar sound but i dont think its from the drive shaft, im guessing that i have an exhaust rattle or something like that, its barely noticeable and only happens sometimes, my exhaust guy has to do a check soon anyway so he can check it on the hoist.
