1987 944 Noisy transaxle


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 93k;

I really like this car but am selling it because I need to eliminate a vehicle. Every 944 I've ever driven, had the same annoying helicopter sound when downshifting for deacceleration. What is this? I was told at Kam Motor Sports that it was nothing out of the ordinary. I've seen your replies to this question and one of the cures is replacing the transmission mount.Does the trans need to be dropped to do this? Axles removed?How could a worn mount be causing the noise?Is the best cure to either turn up the radio or drop the car in neutral and use the brakes?Thanks a lot, I always enjoy reading your replies to member's questions.
