Right my mum has a noise on her Freelander when turning. The noise is somewhere on the back. To me it sounds like some cogs are out of line or something. Anyone else had a prob like this? It's a loud knocking sound.
I've been told it might be the C.V. boots but i'm leaning towards the diff myself.

I'd plump for the diff as well. Has the freelander been serviced recently? It might just need a lubrication service.

Does it go away when it warms up or is it there all the time and does it matter which way it turns?

would be worth changing tthe diff oils but normaly once they get to the stage they are knocking they have warn to much

but does sound like the diff if the noise is coming from the rear

Not sure mate. I've sourced the noise now anyway. I think the part is around £40. It's a worn bearing on the rear of the V.C. It's a bearing/bracket type thingy that holds the propshaft steady.
