United Kingdom 2015 Defender 90 Puma 2.2 XS CSW Santorini Black

Update: fitted the britpart one piece shafts today. No problem at all and have made a huge difference to the driveline. NS flange splines were far worse than OS interestingly.

Britpart items fitted to my sister’s 90 maybe 2 months ago. Might be worth considering some corrosion protection, she’s not worried about minor cosmetics though!

Although the winter has not been too bad yet, there’s been plenty of road salting around here since around October. Current Steeds:
2015 110 UW in Grasmere Green
2003 BMW F650 the Hack
2000 Elise
1992 Ducati 888 (still in bits but soon to be st4s powered)

Hmm - I painted mine in quite a few coats of satin black before fitting. No sign of corrosion.

Do Britpart do an equivalent to the 110 shafts? (LR072977 & 072976)


Sorry, just found them on island4x4 (https://www.island-4x4.co.uk/halfshaft-rear-britpart-tob500030-lr072977-p-37449.html)

HMmm double edit; these seem to be for a 90, not 110

triple edit.... island4x4 show the same part number for a 110 also (https://www.island-4x4.co.uk/halfshaft-rear-110130-britpart-tob500030-lr072977-p-37448.html)....

I was under the impression 90's were different from 110/130 ones...

Could you use Buzzweld (same as the rear crossmember kit) to protect them, and spray them before fitting? Keith

I think I am just going to smear them with coppaslip like the road wheel flange facing.
That’s should stop it getting bad. Thumbs Up 2015 90 XS Santorini Black

There's always something needing done......

Inspired to go and check mine having read through all of the discussion, now added to the list of things to be done when the weather is a bit warmer. Keith

That's just what I did this week. Found that both sides are worn, OS more than NS. Got britpart onepiece replacements as they where about £50, compared to £350 each for genuine!

Looks like a case of whip out the old and slap in the new. MY15.5 RRS HSE
MY13 110
MY87 90 (ex-mod) (for sale)

The OS was more worn on mine too on the rear, seems to often be the case regardless of 1piece or two.

Since I replaced mine with Ashcroft all around. (Except CV's etc.) mine has been transformed.

The offside shaft on a Defender will almost always wear faster and be more likely to break than the nearside due to being shorter and hence less elastic. There will be the odd exception but in general this will be the case.

I wonder if roundabouts maybe anything to do with it? After all there are a lot of them.
After all the NS would spin that bit faster and the OS that bit slower in a clockwise roundabout.

Is there the same occurance on the front on a regular basis? Made In GB. 🇬🇧
