I've not had to do this in the 110 yet, but was wondering to myself....

If one was to bust a halfshaft, I presume it's ok to chuck the centre difflock in and limp home?

How far / fast would be ok?

I had to do this in my old SIII on at least 2 occasions.

Cheers, Hoss

In theory yes, but.... <_<

If I were you, I'd remove the prop shaft and the busted bit of the half shaft if possible (X eng shaft remover thingy tool??).

If I did that then I'd be happy to drive around with it in diff lock for a few days. Rear wheel drive can be interesting!! :D:lol:

Depends how clean the break is and where it is, potentially it could cause a bit of damage if the shaft flops about or bits of metal get into the diff.

I would say it's OK to drive home in a christian manor, pull the half shaft and then go and do some powerslides ;)

If you break a rear one they're easier to remove as you can pull the diff pan off and have a poke about.
