So I was merging on the freeway this morning on my way to work when I realized I was in 5th and just kind of cruising along at 55-60mph when I needed to speed up and merge.
I downshifted to 3rd, did not have time to double clutch because I needed to go right away! When I did so and accelerated, I heard a big clunk/thud towards the back of the car. Made me cringe...hopefully I didn't hurt anything too bad....
From my search, I believe the clunk was my rear diff. from the hard downshift?? How bad is it and do you guys have this problem? This is my first AWD so I am learning all the nuisances that come with it.
I know double clutching will help keep the shifts smooth, is there anything else I can replace to reinforce whatever is making the sound?
