    Cheers dude, I think that's why it took me so long, I tripled checked everything and cleaned and greased everything I could lol

    If I check everything I doubt next week it'll take me another 3 days :D sound advice

    Next issue is hopefully just the rear prop :rolleyes: the centre bearing has loads of play

    Great work there buddy and good to see ur back on the road

    Ref the front and rear diffs I didn’t realise that either at first till I read it a while back in the service manual about having to measure the oil out, however the filler plugs I believe are virtually near the volume anyway

    Really pleased for u mate:D

    And it all goes to rat shìt.

    Broke down about 2miles from home, front prop is spinning but driveshafts aren't moving and the noise is....unhealthy.

    There's been some grease thrown around the nearside wheel arch/chassis leg as well.

    I never touched the nearside driveshaft, but the front prop spinning without any drive going thru the diff - pinion bearings?

    Need to leave for work for half 1, rac on way :(

    cv grease is the give away , my guess is the drive shaft cv joints has failed internally and the shaft is spinning inside the knuckle and has split the cv boot spreading the grease, just means a new shaft

    reason it wont drive is the power takes the way of least resistance through the damaged joint, happened to me on my old vw golf, sounded like the diff had gone but was just the shaft same symptoms of shaft wouldn't move even in gear

    I may be wrong but i doubt will be diff if cv grease spread far and wide

    Try putting it in Mud and ruts to lock the centre diff, you should get drive to the back then....

    And here we see the Land Rover Discovery, residing in its natural habitat. The discovery 3 is an enterprising parasite, suckling from a female recovery truck in order to conserve fuel and reduce wear to it's components. :D

    Oh poo:(
    I sure you were a little more descriptive.
    That’s a pain after all your latest work. But don’t doubt your work first, if you never touched that side and something seems to be showing as what guys have suggested and not your work.

    Chin up mate:)

    On a side note I was under the impression that 1 or 2 of the modes would lock center diff too. Need to go and pull up my 322 screen and take a look for my own future ref.

    Had a quick look when I got back from work, everything's settled now and there's a drop of grease hanging from the inner cv boot thank fook :rolleyes:

    What do people think regards changing both sides while I'm at it? Way I see it, it's off the road anyway and they're same age/mileage, be daft not too? o_O

    Also would it be prudent to whack a new axle extension tube on the offside as well? As it's got a bearing in it.

    Obviously all this is academic until I get it on my flat bit of drive with mateys van and have a good look

    I changed just the 1 side, passenger front if memory serves me,
    It was over 18 months ago and no problems.
    When my cv went it triggered the mil lamp with fault relating to gearbox speed sensor, mines an automatic.

    might as well; while its in the air

    re the drive shaft bearing only car ive ever seen those fail on are mk1 focus's so you might get away with it but then it is problery enduring more torque then any one of those will ever put out
