Sprinter cdi 313, 2003, mwb, AUTO, 212,000 klm. Intermittent

Customer Question

Sprinter cdi 313, 2003, mwb, AUTO, 212,000 klm. Intermittent "whine", "appears" to be from centre of van. Sometimes takes up to 30 klm to present, sometimes less, then it comes on only at 3rd gear and up to 6th inclusive (in man or auto). when accelerating and deaccelerating. Centre bearing replaced and diff reconditioned. Wheel bearings and housings checked. Mech wants to replace prop shaft $++ , but why 3rd gear and up ? gearbox/clutch ? actually sound like a stuffed clutch thrust bearing I once had.
