It seems that they’re gone. Thanks for that Manual upload a few posts back- very good of you.

Next job is chassis wire brush, black chassis paint on the rusty welds, Waxoyl Clear..
It’ll need front discs and Pads at the end of the summer, then EPB shoes.

I’d really like my timed climate turning on.


To save paining it I would just use chassis black wax.

Changed the rear prop shaft this afternoon, having had vibrations at about 55~65mph.
The bolts were worryingly loose at the front, and didn’t have the lock tabs bent over..🤨🔩.
The rear were tight, but again not anywhere near the torque setting or an issue to undo as reported on here.

The one thing that is worth mentioning is the centre bush/rubber mount. This was not as worn as I’d thought when I examined it on the car. There was up/down movement in the rubber. The OE GKN replacement had a fair amount of movement too.
The main defect and worn areas on the old unit were the UJ’s. The rear one (Diff end) was very notch and could best be described as having three positions. It would click thro’ as it was moved. This was evident in both planes of its movement.
The centre unit was also clearly stiff and nowhere near the new one in feel as it was also moved.
The front had a notchy arc, tho’ not like the rear.

The job took about 35mins. On a ramp.


It a bit anal, but if you do some reading on universal joints which are actually quite interesting! they dont do well in enviroemnts that do not allow them to move much like in the D3 and will wear just as yours has.

Ive actually seen that before and to this day avoid diffs and gearboxes like the plague Mr. Green

Replace them no worries, take one apart, hey where did he go?

Just did mine, and what lock tabs?

My front bolts were looser than I expected as well. Torqued them up to spec but also put some loctite 222 on them just in case .....

Now wondering if I missed something

I don't think they are tab washers, they wont lock on Torx heads . No mention in fitting instructions from LR.
