Yes, I did put brand new CV Joints in it. Not Rebuilt! The VW Mechanic I talked to said he didn't think it was the transmission. It makes sense that it wouldn't be because I have driven it for almost 2 yrs, as is, and nothing has changed. The transmission was replaced about 40k ago and I have put 30 on it and it made the noise when I bought it.
Do you think it could be in the differential? I have talked to a lot of other people who don't think tranny either. It sounds like the noise is coming from the differential. I am wondering if there isn't a spline or something that is worn out in there. But don't know enough about it to check.
My other thought is that maybe the front end is out of alignment just enough to somehow put those cv joints in a bind when it backs? Is that possible?
Thanks for your help.
