    :nod, and the sensor. With nothing but a shaft and FD connected, if the noise is still there it will be obvious what needs to be done. No speculation, simple diagnosis.:deal

    This is as i suggested 7 days ago, before this thread degenerated. Doesn't take 7 days to remove a caliper, i can do it in under 5 days.:eek1:lol3

    Hell, I can take a caliper off AND reinstall it over a long weekend.

    I had taken off the caliper still would not spin freely. I drop it off at the dealer on Friday. I got a message today that the ujoint was frozen. A new drive shaft was ordered.
