    Hi Guys I need some help. When I get to a junction and turn right from stop as I accelerate i feel what feels like a wheel has run over a small log with a back wheel and the wheel slips. It happens at the same two junctions every time. If I accelerate slowly it does not happen only under a medium acceleration. Can anybody point me in the right direction to look? i am sorry for the odd explanation but its the best way I can explain it.

    Guessing your traction control is getting a false reading from a sensor, diagnostics might be the way to go

    I would say get the transfer case calibrated first, I am sure I read the other day you can diy the calibration with no diag kit?

    I had similar in my D3, it gradually banged more and more to the point it became painful to drive.

    My issue started with the same left hand up hill turn then over a week it became all left turns, then all turns, and soon after it became worst of all in reverse.

    A Transfer Box Calibration solved it within 1min, my reader didn't have the option to do it and the manual method didn't work at all.

    The Transfer box calibration took less than 1 minutes and if you are going to do a big drive I wouldn't risk not getting it checked, I had an ECU fault saying that the Transfer box clutch calibration was out of tolerance.
