I have a late 2002 996 Tiptronic Turbo had it 4 years its never missed a beat. Out in it the other day car ran fine then later on in the journey I floored the throttle at around 20mph and there was a huge bang from the back! There was a continual grinding knocking noise with each wheel revolution as I slowed down it drove into a car park I was right next to but once the RAC came it lost drive. The engine has good oil pressure and ticks over OK but it sounds to me like the box has gone. Anyone any ideas what it sounds like and if its a box what sort of money am I looking at?

Hi

If we are taking bets, then my money is on driveshaft. I certainly hope so for your sake unless it has caused big damage when it let go.

Please let us know!

Driveshaft splines broken in the CV joint. It will spin and make noise but no drive.

Could also be the crown wheel losing teeth, I think Alex's did this but his locked up rather than losing drive.

I have been busy so not got round to getting the car seen to. It was a bloody loud bang when it went! I managed to drive it slowly off into a car park. I had it taken home on a low loader it was just about moving I got it back off the wagon but then lost all movement back and forward trying to drive it into my garage.
