What sort of noise have you got ,as most diff noises are due to the Meshing of the Crown Wheel and Pinion as the Pinion can turn at 7 times to the 1 of the C/Wheel and (even a lot more) ,so it wears the hard casing off on the thrust side and causes the whine as you drive and it gets louder the faster you go ,, or if a clunk /clunk/clunk,and goes faster as you drive then its a broken tooth on either pinion or C/Wheel, which you will find if you drain the oil and check the drain plug as most drain plugs have a magnit fitted to them to hold any steel in the oil.

check the axle bearing on the side . jack up the car and try and pull the axle in and out of the diff housing. If it moves then it will be a bad bearing.

Rough banging drive


if it's and SL or VR4 the carrier bearings on the propshaft( driveshave from front to rear on AWD) can get loose and cause a banging.
check for slop in the joints between the rear diff and the wheels. you really need to pull and push things around as hard as you can to find something loose enough. Also the whole rear diff is on a frame that hase bushings connecting it to the car so the busshings could have worn.
check the fluid in the rear diff for metal particles and make sure there's no slop in the diff. the propshaft going into the rear diff on the awd should have a small amount of play no more than 5mm.
