I have heard about that stub where the bearing slides on wearing/jamming/...
Then there's "permanent" gearbox housing damage.

Could be wrong

Just strongly advisable to stay away from using your towbar for recoveries

Tow bars snapping has happened and quite a few people have died from it
Yep, seen a video of a towbar ball snapping and going through a bystander's head - it's not pretty.  :-\

If I can give advice don't drive it like that
Mine made noise like that and it was caused by the release bearing and the heat wrapping around it that failed

Shortly after that the bearing unit went and did a little bit of damage to the drive shaft
I was lucky in that the damage was not major but could have done more damage if I was unlucky


May obviously be something else too but rather be careful

Have been thinking I must get one.
I'm sure with a bit of common sense and a bit more common sense they are not too difficult to use.

A Kinetic Snatch Strap is the correct way to go if you want to recover a vehicle that is heavier than yours.
And you can buy one for less than a thousand Zupta's.
