As a last gasp idea it may be a differential bearing allowing a driveshaft to vibrate/resonate.
I was hoping no-one would suggest the diff bearings as that was in the back of my mind. Not what I want to hear 3 weeks before driving to the south of France.

There is some play in them. Have you known this happen before.?
Currently in planmeca's garage:
Renault Laguna 1.8 16v x 2 and a lot of other things. could really do with a tidy up to be honest I'll do it tomorrow
