      Hi i went on the forum as i need to replace my swivel seals and sort out an oil leak from my steering box on my defender. When i went onto your pages they are all still there but the pictures are not showing because of a 3rd party host. I put a help post on today and got a reply to explain what has happened.I wondered if there was another way of getting the two tutorials on the swivel balls and the steering box.dave

      Hi mate,

      I have a 2.5litre 2004 defender 90 county station wagon that's done 64,000 miles. Both my front and rear axles are dripping a small amount of oil. It looks like the pinion oil seals must be the culprits where the prop shafts connect.

      I know the td5 uses a special crush washer on the bearings of the axle but I'm wondering if you could advise the best way to replace both the front and rear axle pinion seals. And also whilst doing this job is there anything else worth looking at whilst it's in bits.

      Thanks

      Thanks for all your brilliant 'how to's' on here. I am getting towards the end of a 200tdi conversion and have found your posts really helpful. In fact, if I wasn't happily married...

      Hi, I'm new to posting on here but have watched from afar for quite a while, this morning I replied to a post and got a message saying something like, " this post is awaiting approval........." , but since then I have looked at the relevant topic and my reply has not yet appeared, any ideas ?

      Thanks for getting back so quick Buster. I did think of changing the steering wheel when i was going to use the transit seats but even so, with a 2" lift, it was a struggle to get in and out and i would have ruined the sides of the seats in no time. Have you changed your steering wheel and if so, to what size?
      Also I have been thinking of trying to square up the bodywork so the doors fit better. Do you know if the seat box is seperate from the bodywork or will I have to lift that as well? I have a wedge shaped gap at the top of both doors and the lines of the doors dont line up with those on the tub. I hoped that lifting the midle section would close this gap but am unsure if the seat box is connected and would have to be raised aswell? Thanks again

      Hey Buster, hows it goin? Ive been looking into changing my front bucket seats to something that the wife and kid can sit in with me( i know, i know) I was reading your oldi post using a rr classic rear seat. Do you still have it and was it a success. Tried using transit 1+2 front seats but they sit too high even with runners removed and i cant get my legs between the steering wheel and seat. Did you have this problem? Any tips would be helpful. I know a guy who is breaking a classic so could get all fixings, belts etc. Cheers,Mick
