You can remove the diff as a seperate unit, then rebuild it on the bench to a reasonable standard. The output bearings are actually needle rollers and it's rare that these fail. Early Freelander diffs were very weak, and inner bearing (usually the pinion bearings), were prone to failure.

How to get the diff off -

Thanks

It is an early one 1999 I have removed the cover plate from it in situ and the play does appear to be on the inner bearing as I can see the movement when I push on the driveshaft I hope to get the unit off next week,But was hopeing some one would have info on setting up the axle when I rebuild it ie torqe settings and preload settings I havent worked on one for about 30 years (when Haynes Manuals gave info like that)
