Fitting of Steering guard


Recommended Posts

I have a 1991 Discovery, 200 Tdi, h reg. I bought a guardsman galvanised steel steering guard from first four off road, an come fitting it today came across an issue with fitting it.

Its a pig of a job doing it by yourself, But it is attached by the bumper mounts along with two mounts located behind on the chassis. on one side there is a steering linkage, while on the otherside i can easily locate the bolt nad attach it to the guard. The mount with the steering linkage is mounted to, i can undo the nut and attach the guard, but is it safe to do so, and such it be tightened to any set figure?

Any help is much appreciated.

Been there done that, we had to use clouting with a large aircooled flatness adjuster AND turning it with a breaker bar (which was only just turning) and I think we may have heated it up too :unsure: the new one got quite a lot of coppaslip applied when it went back in! :D
