hi everyone after getting a very slight knocking noise from the front nearside of the car when braking (a single clunk) I decided to let my mechanic take a look . he said he checked everything, and told me that the front differential had gone. this meant a complete gearbox rebuild. is there anybody out there that has experienced the same knocking noise?

With potential big issues like this i would always get a 2nd or 3rd opinion before splashing the cash
