At least I understand why they have to drop the transmission, it seems logical.
On the pother hand, $75 wholesale for the front axle and I paid $488
I am waiting for them to tell me what is the exact problem. But is seems to explain why the sound is heard only when the wheels were turned all the way. This is low mileage to have a bad front differencial.
What could have caused that?

Also a 2004 Baja turbo owner. For several years I too have experienced a grinding transmission noise when shifting from 2nd to 3rd in auto. Problem is only noticed when car has run 20 min. or more. Finally heard by dealer after several visits. Their finall diagnosis...a rusted heat shield! I never believed it . Now a recently dicovered cracked and rusted sub frame which I believe was the problem all along....trouble is... now out of warranrty at 81000mi. ALSO have to replace A THIRD turbo...this time not covered under warranty!
