Hi Benjo,

Just found this whilst looking to try to find a solution for my brother's GTV6. He has no problem with gearchange noises, but has a clunking noise from the front area of the propshaft when switching off.

Did you find a cause, and, more importantly, did you find a solution?

Noise

he V6 cars have a splined joint to accomodate variences in shaft length. It should be clamped tight. Takes a 17mm socket & is accesable through the oppening in the bottom of the rear engine support.

Thanks for your help. Spot on advice! The fault was in the joint - the spline was worn and tightening up of the splined joint had no effect. The joint has been replaced and the noise has gone. Great!
