Richard Spandit Posted September 24, 2006 Share Posted September 24, 2006 Was trying to get home to Surrey from Cheltenham this morning. Accidentally knocked the diff lock knob earlier on and couldn't re-engage anything. I borrowed my father's Disco manual which I presume has the same setup, but it didn't help. I tried engaging it in gear, out of gear, engine on, engine off, moving slowly, clutch in and out - in 1st gear the car would start moving but as soon as I tried changing up, the gearbox would disengage and the car would slow to a halt. Doesn't sound normal to me, no matter how basic LRs are... After stopping on a steep hill, in Leckhampton, I managed to get the damn thing to stay in gear and it was fine for the 130 miles home... Should the diff-lock have a nice positive selection action, with some clunking, as mine had nothing (a bit of ghastly graunching noise when I was moving and trying to engage something...)
