    Hi All,

    I have a sprinter 311 lwb and when in gear I can hear a grinding/whining noise coming from the middle/rear of the van. But when you push the clutch in the noise goes away.

    Any ideas what this can be?? help would be grateful.

    Cheers
    James

    Could be prop shaft centre bearing on its way out, or the diff breaking up.

    Does the prop shaft not keep spinning when the clutch Is pushed in and the vehicle is moving?

    If the noise goes away when you press the clutch, its likely to be the release bearing
    I wouldn't worry about it, my last sprinter did if for 30k, then i sold it (unrelated to the noise)
