206 - leaking output seal and play in drive shaft

Post by 8Jb9 » Thu May 21, 2015 9:59 am

The Ms's 206 has started making clunking and "rolling" noises that depend on vehicle speed. Clunking noises are just as it gets started, or just as it stops. Noises are also there when I killed the engine while rolling on a parking lot. The clunks don't get worse when driving around in tight circles, not from what I could tell at least.

It seems to me that there's slight rotational play in the LHS drive shaft (none in the RHS), but more worryingly the inner "lump" of the drive shaft can move noticeably up and down. The drive shaft seal is leaking oil.

Any of you fixed this before?
