brucemillar is on a distinguished road
We are as sure as we can that the failure started with;

1) Diff oil leak
2) CV joint splitting
3) Diff running dry and exploding along with the CV shaft and slip-ring.

At the point of 3) we were always going to fail trying to remove the shaft. That was until we saw the excellent YouTube video on shocking it with a slide hammer & chain.

The diff is destroyed completely. Broken gears, internal mounts, gouging through lack of lubricant and eventual seizing.

Lucky it never let go at speed on the road.

All good now. Running like new with no noise, binding or leaks.

Thanks to all for your help.

Bruce
