: E-mails as I'm unable to return any replys to you. They always come back as undeliverable mail. For your car, I would have the center driveshaft bearing looked at closely with the car on a service lift, while in gear, rolling along at a low speed. Sound like you've covered just about everything that's common on the Seven.
: Put it up in the air again and have a slow look around with the wheels/speedo running only as fast as needed. Good luck

Dear Callan,

My ISP was down for two days. Maybe this is the reason for mail trouble. There is also an email account for my office mailto:[email protected]

I already observed the vehicle on the lifter. This was the reason (or the result of) for changing the differencial :-(.

I did the following with that bearing in the last two weaks:
1.) Set pretension to 0 (usualy approx 4mm). Result:
vibrations during accel. araund 50 kph reduced, noise around 160 kph increased, noise around 210 kph unchanged.
2.) (Over-) Set pretension of the bearing to >8mm (max. of the orrifices). Result:
vibrations around 50 kph increased tramendous, noise around 160 kph reduced a little (starts earlier), noise around 210 kph unchanged, new noise around 120 kph (resonance)

PS.: I have difficulties to post in this group from my home site. Due to this my response sometimes delayed

Best Regards
