my diff clunk/vibration ....

... is 'within tolerance'.

I have to say, Ford must be a really tolerant bunch :)

So, what needs to be done and how much does it usually cost? Can anyone recommend a good place to get it done in Adelaide (preferably in/near city)?

i've noticed mine clunking a bit lately too... haven't had it tested yet, but will be doing soon.. that dull thud is really getting annoying.

It's a TM in Ford, the diff clinck when you reverse. Don't worry too much about it, it can last for 250,000+KM.

what about take off from say 80km/h to 100km/h (you know merging on to freeway), i do this and when i lift off the accelerator (sp?) i hear this faint THUD. It's a little annoying and concerning. I also get the THUD when selecting reverse (softomatic) after on a warm start.

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

I've got this too - while not as noisy nor brash as the AU, its still annoying.

its on my list for the 15,000 km service.

Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Thats exactly what i've got.. its at around 80km's when you accelerate, the thud is the most noticable.

Ah ok so it isn't an isolated problem. I will also get it done at the 15000 service (just hit 10000). Also noticed that the car seems a bit sluggish as well on certain speeds. Like it takes a higher gear and keeps it (thats why i should have gone manual). Oh well get it all checked out.
