    Noise

    Wonder if I can pick some brains. I'm getting a ticking noise when driving around 30mph to 50mph when only a little throttle is applied. If I dip the clutch the noise goes if a apply more gas the noise goes any ideas?
    At idle I can't hear the noise just whilst in motion and the smallest bit of pressure on the gas pedal.
    Was thinking cv joint but I'm not getting any clicking on full lock. Cheers

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    Surely I'd get that at idle but I don't.

    Well got it to the garage and they've checked usual suspects for the noise cv joints etc but all good. Then they noticed that where the inner cv joints join to the gearbox have excessive play in the flange. Does this sound plausible to people? Will post a pic of where I mean. Plan is to drop the gearbox and investigate further.

    So the bit circled in blue has play on both sides. My car has a wavetrac if that makes any difference?Screenshot_20190225-121148_Samsung Internet.jpg
