Did nothing to the Highway, but made an appointment for friday 20 with my garage to get the duannual technical approval, some servicing, some planned repairs and to get a new problem fixed.
On my trip to and back from the Wild West Easter Fest last weekend I experienced some bad noise from the back of the van, and after some thinking over, I think it's one of the velocity joints on the right short drive-shaft form the transmission to the wheel.
After posting this suggestion on a german Vanagon-Forum, I got answers, who confirm this, and the garage says the same.
So, next week friday they will check it, and than I have to order the new joints.

Today i actually got something done. I got the rest of the nasty old exhaust cut out, re-installed the starter, and re-installed the spare tire carrier and tire.
