06 front diff problems

hello, this is my first post. I bought a 2006 v8 nicely trimmed. it has a few dents and scratches and the interior buttons have worn down. I bought it from the person who bought it off the showroom floor, it only has 51000 miles on it, no tears in the leather nothing. has done all the maintenance. I mean just put on 1200 bucks worth of brand new bridgestone tires. so the its in my shop and it needs a battery. so the customer says hey im selling it, and I go oh cool how much. get this 2000 bucks and I freak out really! so I give her the 2000 buy the car, and even put the battery in my self. we scan it no codes nothing awesome! then I give it to my wife, she starts driving it, falls in love with it. here it comes, babe there is a noise coming from the car between 30-60mph. so I take it to work and rack it up. turn off traction control and let the wheels spin. put a pry bar to the wheel bearings, cause that's what I was hoping it was, nope. so I put the pry bar on the front diff. there it is clunk. . . . .clunk. . . .clunk. . . etc. found it. I am wondering after writing all this, if anyone has has this problem, what was it. thank you very much

Oh and while you are under there, check out the drive shaft bearing. At that age and distance it could be about to go and will give a thump thump thump as you go along.
Preventative maintenance will save you the cost of a replacement shaft.
Plenty of threads on this in here, this one to start you off

And when Nooby comes along he will point you to this very informative post on the UK Touareg site. Have a read, it will be worthwhile

sorry guys there has been some miss information, when I racked it up to listen to the diff that's where I heard the clunk sound. but when you drive it, it makes a whining sound from 30-60 and gets louder when decelerating. so I guess what I am asking. is if anyone can post a link to front diff stuff as this forum will NOT let me do any searches. thank you.
