Personally I wouldn't bother messing with it . The prop shaft is made by GKN . They are in Leek Staffordshire . Or Firow propshafts at Holmes Chapel offer a good service ,I have used them in the past . Thumbs Up

Might just be my heavy plant background but buying a whole new shaft for the sake of a £50 centre bearing seems a bit extreme??? Shocked

I would agree but LR haven't assembled the shaft in a way which makes it easy to change it. I tried once on my D3 and came to the conclusion that if it went wrong, the result could spoil your day. Unfortunately I didn't have any professional bearing change company's in my locality.

Have a look at this thread

Best thing to do is to replace the whole propshaft. you just cant seal them back up again properly and mine sprayed grease everywhere and destroyed the U/J inside. so had to do the propshaft anyways,

I did mine on the floor with a torx socket and breaker bar. TIGHT AS Censored

You will also find the rear prop u/j is notchy and thats staked in.
Why they have a u/j in that set up I dont know as the zero movement is going to cause the rollers to wear in one spot only.
