Diff whine & still waiting for fix.

We purchased a new BA XR8 & drove to QLD at Xmas , half way there it
created a diff whine between 95 & 110 kms. I took it to a dealer in QLD &
they checked the oil level & said ok but you will have to go to your selling
dealer in VIC.
Dealer in vic drove car & said it is bad , we will order you a new centre &
call you when it comes in.
They fitted a new centre and said all is ok,we picked up the car after repair
& found noise to be louder & a bad vibe in drive line, like a 4wd with mud
tyres on.
Took car back again dealer had car for 2 days & said our front wheels were
out of balance , how this happens while the diff is done is beyond me.
Picked car up still no good spoke to serv mng told me to bring it in & someone
will go with you on a testdrive.
Well we did this & technician said oh it is bad , we will have to bal tailshaft
but bal tool is not avail for 4-5 weeks and we suggest you drive the car very minimal if not at all but we cant give you a loan car, still waiting on ford.

Re: Diff whine & still waiting for fix.

Welcome to FORD ownership. One thing you need to learn fast is to find a good dealer, most don't care about fixing your car........

Re: Diff whine & still waiting for fix.

Back last year when mine was whining I got it looked at, few weeks later whole new assembly. Showed the service tech, no hassles and no worries they were fantastic about it

btw...this was before the drag racing
