If your vcu is tight then it will put extra strain on your ird and diff...some users have seen saw toothing on the rear tyres which causes droning/vibration at certain speeds.
Thanks for the reply. The car has done 51,000 miles, I've not checked the VCU, and have not noticed it tight/holding back when reversing apart from sometimes a little whining noise from the back passenger side when turning a corner. I have just had the two prop bearings changed so I know it's not those thats causing the problem.
I was just having a look on another forum and somebody on there seems to have had the same problem, he found out it was the tyres that were causing the problem. I had two front tyres changed last November, before I had Michelin's all round I now have a different make on the front I'm just wondering if this is the same problem as the guy on the other forum. I must say I didn't notice any noise before the tyre change????
