IT WASN’T THE DIFF!! But naturally, it was something else 😐.
We ended up needing the rear brakes done as part of the MOT (not surprised!) and one of the drive belts was the cause of the dreaded whirring noise. We had budgeted for SOME fixes and whilst it was a bit more than what we had anticipated, it wasn’t as killer as needing a new diff!!
So, after a full service and check we know we’re safe to hit the road. We know there might be niggles and bumps along the way (no trip in a van exists without that!) but that’s ok! We’ll deal with that if and when it happens but for now, or house on wheels has a clean bill of health!
The mechanic was full of praise for Vanuel, saying it’s the cleanest Movano he’s ever seen 😊 is it weird that I’m proud of our van for that?? Like he came home with a good report card or something... 😛
