I do not see a problem. This is normal. You don't drive your car back and forth every 2 seconds.



This is the same issue people have when they wiggle their wheels with locked steering column.

Video just shows the slack in the drive train. I get a decent metallic clank when the slack is removed just like in this video. If there is enough motion in the subframe bushings you can loose that slack and re-tighten and get a clunk at any speed.

Loose in traction e53 3.0D (from Europe)

https://drive.google.com/a/rouse.biz...w?usp=drivesdk

This is the sound of a spline slipping at the transfer case to front drive shaft.

It will typically repeat when under heavy load especially when making a corner or could happen when shifting into second and when you enrage the clutch.

The clink from the videos before mine are relatively normal slack coming out of the drive train. It sounds a little dry I would check the differential fluid levels.

If you get quiet slip in the drivetrain (rpm climbs but not kph), then the implication is the clutch is worn out. The clutch can also make a "chatter" sound when It fails.

If you get a pop/snap sound as you engage the clutch and add power that is similar to the video I just linked, then it's almost certainly the front drive shaft spline. There is a kit to add a couple cm to the length of the drive shaft and will fix that problem if that is the problem.

Greetings. My clunking is in front hals shafts-loose nuts. So, get to main problem - some loose/play in traction: Today i get under my e53 and check where can be a play-loose in my traction...

1.) Front diff - without play=good condition
2.) Rear diff - without play=good condition
3.) main driveshaft without play=good condition
4.) both guibo's=good condition
5.) front and rear hals shafts - little play on CV joints = maybe this is problem?
6.) I'm nervous of loose in transfer case-it seems to me, that there is i big loose between main driveshaft and front driveshaft, i think there is i big play in chain of trnsfr case

There is a video of play between driveshafts.. Btw.the play on splines on front driveshaft is feeling about 0,5-1mm)

Thank you very much all of you:-)

Seems like a fairly normal amount of play. Worthy of checking into not worth losing sleep over

Sounds/looks like the usual chain slack issue on the NV125 transfer case.

You can check your chain slack after draining the transfer case - see this post: -
