United Kingdom 1989 Defender 90 300 Tdi HT Baltic Blue

Oh the fun continues

So took the landy out for a spin as it hasnt been out recently, as i was driving it back through the yard i heard a loud clicking sort of noise when the wheels were turned and i was giving it a bit of acceleration. I thought it was a propshaft but both of them are absolutely fine and dandy. There is nothing catching the wheels either when i had a look. It seems to be doing it more when i am turning right on full lock.

I know its a little vague of my description of the problem but....

Can anyone shed a little light on what it could be or what i need to check. 1995 Land Rover Discovery 300tdi - Sold

Sounds very much like a CV joint on the way out, I'm afraid. Darren

Yeah, relatively easy. I'd guess at a three spanner job in the Haynes manual. Darren

Had a free moment to check the clicking noise, after jacking the landy up and taking the wheel off i spun the brake disk and the brake pad closest to the outside of the car was moving up and down hitting the top and bottom of the caliper. So maybe i have found the cause of the clicking i will have to monitor it for now.

Plus the landy doesnt do much mileage and spends most of a week if not all week at times parked in its container so not fully in a rush to fix it and if it isnt the CV joint then it will be a cheaper fix, also been told by SWMBO to make sure its running pretty reliably before the little one is born..... i have till the beginning of February so plenty of time Very Happy Very Happy 1995 Land Rover Discovery 300tdi - Sold

Yep only 11 weeks to go "plenty of time" Rolling with laughter....... and its at the time of year where its lovely and cold outside so numb fingers whilst working on the 90. Thumbs Up

Luckily there isnt much left to sort out. If the rattle is the brake pads moving i can live with that, if its the CV Joint then i may just send it to my mechanic to fix.
I have a couple of bits to sort out in the cab area and trace just one little drip the rest of the water drips/leaks have been sorted

The rest of what i want to do will have to be put on pause for a little while. Such as buying bigger tyres and off set wheels to fill the arches out and a roll cage they are 2 of the big budget items. 1995 Land Rover Discovery 300tdi - Sold
