axle replacement on a 300tdi


Recommended Posts

Good morning...

I need some advice. my disco 300tdi m reg has recently lost drive on front axle, after inspection I found offside hub/swivel/CV and halfshaft

looked like a grenade had gone off.

So time for replacement parts or axle, to that end I have been offered a 90 TD5 front axle but I am not sure if

1] will it fit?

2] are they 24 spline?

3] are they as strong as the disco 300tdi 24 spline

and 4] are there any other issues that I should be aware of?

Many thanks

1) yes it should go straight on unless it is off a late 90 (post 2002 model) which has a different panhard rod which might need some modification to fit but shouldn't be rocket science

2) all axles are 24 spline these days but if you are changing the whole axle it won't matter anyway?

3) probably not much in it - later CVs are not as strong as the early 110 CVs as they are smaller but I don't think there is a lot in it

4) only thing I can think of is whether you need ABS which may or may not be fitted to the replacement axle...
