    300tdi injector pump : diagnosis request

    Thank you - that’s just what I needed
  2. Having fixed the wayward steering with new UJs I thought I would track down what I thought was an oil leak. Turns out its a fuel leak from the injector pump as shown in the pic below It seems as though its tracking down the seal line and you can see a drop of fuel collecting below. All fuel lines an injectors are dry. Looks as though the seal as blown ? What's the progosis - is it DIY fix ? thanks as always - Tim

    Steering box adjustment or UJs & bushes

    so OP reporting back for some further wisdom ..... panhard rod bushes changed and it’s helped a little but it’s still wandering ! i have checked the steering UJs and can’t get any movement out of the top one - but the lower one has slight movement in it which you can feel by holding the spline and applying up and down pressure. I presume that may be the culprit or should I be looking elsewhere first ?

    Steering box adjustment or UJs & bushes

    Thanks Mike and Western track rod ends recently replaced so next stop panhard rod!
  7. Drove my wifes 90 300tdi for the first time in awhile and nearly put the thing in a ditch due to the vague steering i find a need to constantly adjust the wheel by significant 3 inches either way to stay on course i know these things have vague steering but this is verging on the dangerous i have checked everything is tight and secure on the column - the steering box is a recon unit of about 4 years old how can i tell what needs to be done - whether its the box adjustment or bushes/UJs ? Treat me like an idiot and you wont be too far off the mark!

    Clutch master cyclinder : gunk

    My '97 300 TDI Defender started weaping from the clutch master cyclinder into the foot well - so naturally wanted to replace it with OEM The new cyclinder is fitted and surprisingly I have most of the skin on my knuckles too; the old cyclinder had alot of black gunk at the bottom of the reservoir which I presume is from the degradation of the seals and the fluid was a muddy dark color. So my question - given the state of the fluid I was going to drain out all the old fluid from the slave and refil with fresh. Is there anything else I can or should do to remove any additional gunk ? thanks in advance

    Rear shocks : sqeak sqeak

    I replaced the rear shocks on my 90 300tdi about 6 months ago - the bushes were pinged at the last MoT and they also squeaked like b*gg*ery. Now the new ones have started to do the same - the squeak can be temporaryily cured by rotating the outer cuff - it stops for a day or so but then its back. They shocks I fitted were Armstrong How can I get rid of the squeaking ?? Thanks in advance

    300 TDi fuel pump leak : counsel please

    Hi WesternThanks for your help - the pipe shown joins onto the pump and then goes onto to the first injector as the bleed line So in the photo below its the pipe going from top right hand corner of the picture towards the centre where it attaches to the pump and then onwardso the first injector as a bleed line
