    Hi new to this forum so sorry if its in the wrong section.
    Basically just want to know if any1 has had this problem, just changed the centre bearing on my car and every thing was fine for a day it then started making a thud when changing gear every gear on and off acceleration had it up on the ramp and when lifting the clutch the prop is moving away from the diff and moving the engine forwards? Going to have another look 2mz

    The coupling from the gearbox onto the prop is rubber and will cause this...just changed mine on my e60 had same symptoms

    When driving the torque created will make worn out things move, even things that seem 'solid' when checked visually/by hand on ramps. I have a knock coming from the diff area, and I had a mate rev the car (handbrake on) and bring the clutch on and off the biting point so I could try and pinpoint the problem.

    Turned out to be the joint connecting the shaft to the diff totally knackered when we took it off, all sorted now happy days :-)
