Already jacked it up in the air and had my son drive it and the noise does not reproduce while all four wheels are up. It is only under load. Braking or coasting in gear (it's a stick shift) or in neutral no noise. Only when applying light to moderate acceleration.

You do the front or rear guibo? I had a clinking metallic noise under accel only. Did a full front and rear drive shaft service (2 flex disks, rear center support bearing, and greased the shaft spines) and everything is nice and quiet now.

Front guibo only. This is a 3.0i 6 speed manual and I have just under 100k miles. The spline on the front driveshaft had surface rust but looked otherwise great so I did grease it before replacing. It is possible I did not grease it sufficiently I guess.

The noise is very hard to pinpoint on origination. I had my son drive it down my street and I leaned into the engine bay while he drove :-) and it seems like it's coming from the drivers side and toward the front. I can't say 100% on this as it could be sound waves bouncing and fooling me.

The sound is not clinking - more of a metal-on-metal grinding or dragging type of noise. Something could be vibrating just right to make it sound like this. I am a little hesitant it is the guibo on the rear as it's not really a clunk/clink type noise but maybe I'm missing?

Thanks! T

If it's coming from the front... Like you, I doubt it's anything on the rear shaft. How do your axles look/feel? Wheel bearings? Something simple like a brake heat shield being bent?
