No left turn


Recommended Posts

Hi all

A mate at work has a problem with his disco, on his way back from a laning trip he stopped at some traffic lights to turn left

Pulled away but couldnt turn left,when travelling at speeds of and above 25 mph all is well,

below that speed he cant turn lerf at all.

Hes disconnected steering, wont turn left

Hes removed diff, all seems ok

Hes removed drive shafts cv joint seem ok

Steering turns left until you fit drive shaft then locks up

Any ideas?

if you cant turn when your at standstill with the two short shafts in sounds like cv joints, when you say disconnected steering what do you mean? and were disconnected? make sure your steering damper isnt full of mud this can cause this sort of problem.

He disconnected all steering to the axle,including the damper,link arm etc.

The hubs will turn fine until he fits the cv joint, then he says "it feels like its trying to push the hub off and locks up"

The right side is fine, he says hes tryed another cv joint but it still does it.

almost certainly the cv joint not pulled all the way through the hub,i fitted a new cv after i bust one and it stopped turning right and when i rebuilt the hub it wouldn't pull right through as the neck of the cv was slightly thicker than the old one and the seal just inside the hub that the cv outer shaft goes through was too small, a different seal slightly larger allowed it to fully pull through and all is fine.
