Noise on deceleration
When driving at highway speeds, the bird is driving pretty well 'normally', considering all 245, xxx kms on the OD.
When I go down a hill, and lift my foot off the skinny pedal slightly, in order to maintain a constant speed, I'm getting a loud, low rumbling sound from the back end.
When I open the throttle back to its cruising level (either continuing downhill or flat), the noise drops back to its 'normal' level.
Does this sound like a worn gear set in the differential?
How can I check the gear set for play?
What amount of play would be considered acceptable?
