Mein Auto: '01 X5 3.0 '00 323CI 540i
'01 X5 Front Differential Rebuild/Repair Kit/Parts?

Does anyone know where I can get parts to rebuild or repair a front differential? Mine makes a clinking sound when I let off the gas. This suggests either wear in the gears, bearings, or spacers/washers, leaving too much space between the gears and causing the sounds (or all/some of the above). I have done a lot of searching but haven't found anyting other than buying a new or used one. Any help is much appreciated. I have 215K miles on it so I can't say it's too soon, but the engine runs strong and it still looks good so I was planning on keeping it. Plus you really can't sell it with a bad front diff.
