Hey, sounds like the same thing my ED does. Always has, I guess I'm just tolerant. Oh no, that's not it, it's the wifes car.

Does someone here know what causes that? Iv'e been meaning to fix it but it hasn't gotten any worse (bought car with 18,000km now has 125,000km) and I don't have to put up with it that often.

Had the same problem with the TE, also talked to other TE owners and yep, they had the same problem, one bloke is on his second diff, still not satisfied.

First FTE changed the IRS axles, slight improvement, I went back and said still not satisfied, I want a new diff, they said not yet, try the new oil first. After new oil and seals were fitted the clunk went away and hasn't come back after 10,000kms. So fingers crossed, it has worked. This is such a common problem, all I get from FTE is it's the same diff as HSV, it's just the way they are. They are reluctant to talk about it in detail. Best of luck.

They are right it is the same diff that Holden have been using and there is the first mistake:eek:

Ford are running higher them 80 % replace on this item and have been tearing strips off BTR telling them to fix this piece of junk.

I have the latest version in my car now and it is a huge improvement over the original. Still a little bit there but it is better

Good luck. Its not the dealers decision to make. Ford have your service record, your details go into the system and some computer somewhere sends out the new unit. I got a shock when I found out how this works and was angry that I put up with a dealer telling me the car was normal for nearly 2.5 years
