70 200vr 2.8 ARRRGH !!

my 70 200 2.8vr is still being a right pain with the AF working when it feels like it took it out last night and out of 40 shots it worked about 50 per cent of the time Last night when it was deciding not to play the pic in the view finder started to move downwards quite violently almost as if the VR was working backwards with a sound of a woodpecker from within the lense. When it does work turning the camera in portrait mode and using the shutter release on the grip also stops it when its worked ok less than two secs prior ive cleaned the contacts ive also put it back on my D70 and it worked ok Another thing is occasuionally when it doesnt work the figures in the view finder are going all over the shop flashing on and off violently and then again when it doesnt work they stay ok There seems very little play in the lense mounting on the body and all my other lenses work fine without any probs. Im thinking something inside the lense is either sticking or has a dry joint etc Its never been dropped and is kept in my camera bag (well one of them)
Grays have said they can send it to Fixation or i can take it myself and they havent come across this prob before the lense is about 3 years old and has had little use anyone give me any contact cleaning tips Visually i cant see anything wrong with them and as at times the readings are going harry and billy im sure its more of a "internal lense" problem somethings having a funny inside

If it works OK on the D70 it points to the camera or camera contacts, surely?

Why not try it on a different D300 body? If it is OK on that.......
