Default intermittant noise

when ive been driving,and this only happens sometimes,when I go on full lock I get a clunk coming up from the front,you can also here it,its seems worse when im reversing,just like its a prop joint or drive shaft seizing up, when I go back to the car and drive the noise has gone until the next time it does it totally random,its difficult to pinpoint exactly where its coming from

This happened to me, when the car is cold not a sound.
The silicone inside the diff breaks down over time and repeated hot use.
Get the car running on a ramp in gear lock to lock to replicate the noise, if itís isolated to the very back of the box then itís the c-diff.

I have a gearbox rebuild thread with all the details.

Before crapping yourself over gearbox issues: Give the driveshaft nuts a tweek...torque wrench setting 'FT' (fookin' tight ), should be about 190nm but if the nuts have been undone in the past, they'll need to be done up tighter as the spec is for new nuts.
