    Morning,

    Just wondering what the symptoms would be for a propshaft thats wearing out?

    Basically I am noticing a small vibration and a droning noise when I put my foot down at low revs in any gear - seems to be the most apparent in 5th.
    The noise and vibration is gradually getting louder / worse.

    In lower gears it makes more of a "knocking" sound. - I will try and take a video so you can hear what it sounds like.

    I have had wheel bearings and CV joints go in the past, this sound is completely different.
    When I purchased the car I changed the gearbox and diff oils, the levels are fine.

    Sounds like dual mass flywheel problem to me...... That's how mine started...

    I've had a problem like this for a while now(couple of years), mine makes a vibrating noise at around 1200rpm in any gear, some days it does it, other days it doesnt....but its doing it a lot more frequently recently and getting a bit louder so I think its about time i got it sorted out! I have been thinking either the DMFW or an engine mount. If it is the DMFW, has anybody changed to a singe mass? whats it like?

    Was yours a Quattro? - my noise is definitely coming from under the cabin, so leads me to think its propshaft/differential related.

    Fwd, mine could be felt through my left heel quite badly, the noise is hard to describe apart from chatterchatterchatter or a dddddddddd.... I can't view your video
