Hi John, do a search on here and you'll find the same problem on other EGC models - if have a stiff drink first, though.

Yes it is a fault. PSA are getting away with murder. Every time someone (who has parted with a vast amount of money to them) complains they either say they know nothing about it (see my posts on ECG) or its normal for this vehicle. No its not. When you come to trade in your present new car, and all 2008's are reasonably new, you will see how the amount your car will fetch is affected by the "unknown" faults that you are now suffering from. The trade and other customers will shy away from these cars.The diff noise is due to faulty diff gearalignment caused by bearing faults. They should put this right for you.

Pilot is bang-on - your dealer is wrong and it is a fault on the output shaft bearings.

If your dealer really won't fix it for you contact Peugeot Customer sevice and I would tell them if its not fixed that you will involve Trading Standards and/or the Press. I would also tell the dealer that you intend to do this. I believe that their bonuses from PSA depend on their customer satisfaction rating.

Ok thanks for reply.
I fear that a repair may not work and the car would be off the road for ages. I have done 13k miles and the noise is no worse.
So if it stays the same I'll live with it.
