disco 1 rear wheel drive only

Recommended Posts

I have a disco 300tdi and its off the road (mot) at the moment with no front propshaft, I'm wondering if I can drive it about 5 miles to the garage for the work finishing off without destroying the transfer box ...or is it not worth the risk

cheers

On a D1 you should be able to lock the centre diff manually, granted it isn't usual but I should have thought  it would be OK driven sensitively? ..... I am sure someone here will have done it in real life.

Ah I got you, so locked it shouldnt mess with the differential at all...but normal transmission it might do bad things Thanks Blanco I guess we wait and see how it went if they have ;)

I've done this in the past, while waiting for new UJ's or a prop or whatever to arrive.  No issues at all, just remember not to boot it too much!

Unlocked it won't move, locked it'll be fine, only thing that'll care is your back axle taking 100% of the torque. Try not to do too many donuts and you'll be fine.
