take the front end up in the air....with both wheels danglin'...put 'er in neutral...spin the wheel...the opposite side should spin the other way...if someone is eatin' walnuts you'll know...also the boot which contains a measure of poisonous grease will have leaked out through a crack in the boot...you'd see that~ if the transmission were faulty probably would not be able to put it into neutral in the first place~
