Knocking noise while coasting.
 
Hi i have a MY11 GC 3.6L petrol, after the 12000km service i noticed a very slight knocking noise while coasting (not accelerating) the frequency would vary with the speed that i was coasting at... been to Jeep service this morning and was advised that i require a new rear diff assembly?!?!? also have to wait cause as expected their is nil stock anyone else experienced this issue?? as I honestly thought that the rotation of the tyres at the 12000km service would have been the cause..

Read Diff slap after 12,000 k's? Sounds like a faulty diff. Not heard anyone else reporting that.

Went in on Monday to get the diff changed... dropped the car of got a call the next day that the diff that took some took nearly 8 weeks to arrive has the wrong bushes!?!? .. the dealer is now gonna have the car for 3-6 weeks!!!! ...... might as well have bought an ALFA Romeo!!! at least their service is well equipped to service their factory spec lemons...

I'm surprised they didn't send a steering wheel instead. Not many servicemen know the difference.
In the parts order form they probably requesteed "A Roundish thing to make the car go"

Tell them to give you the car back until they get the correct parts. Having a car for more than a week is totally unacceptable. I am sure they could get parts from their new warehouse faster, but unfortunately they only purchased $14mill of FAIL to stock it with.

At this point they have supplied a Cherokee as a courtesy car.... I made a point of getting a courtesy car of them as I had funny feeling that this kind of situation might be on the cards!!!
