Dezzie Posted July 9, 2015 Share Posted July 9, 2015 Right then, my Freelander is making all the wrong clunks and bangs, so I guess it's time. From what I've read on here, it certainly sounds as though the VCU needs replacing (again) and the IRD is going faulty. The Diff has a leak and is now humming as it has probably run dry. (I do periodically refill it). My year 2000 L series Diesel isn't worth spending loads of money on, and at best, although a tidy specimen, would probably only fetch £1200. So, I'm going to turn it into a 2 wheel drive for a while, until such time as I can find a good Freelander at a breakers, or take it to Bell engineering and throw some money at them. My questions are as follows..... If the IRD is knackered, will it be needed on a 2 wheel drive Freelander? Or is it redundant.? If I take the prop-shaft / VCU off, will the Freelander still run fine with an IRD that's a gonner? Also ;- With the Prop-shaft missing, does the rear Diff actually do anything? Or again, is it redundant? Would it need oil in? Thanks guys. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
