The gear box jumping out of high range would most probably

be caused by wear in the shims on the intermediate shaft in the transfer case.

To repair it you will need to remove th e intermediate shaft and reinstall it with the reqiured

shimming to factory spec. The parts are cheap, it should take max 4hrs . THe hard bit is getting

all the gears and shims on the shaft in the correct order without dropping off.

If you aren't confident with this sort of stuff, speak to a LR specialist about it they should not charge you more than 4hrs labour.

Cheers

Got any pics on how to do it? I finally got it today, and I put heaps of fluid in the transfer box. I dont think there was any in there.

you will have to get hold of a workshop manual, I don't think the haynes covers it.

Set everything up as per the manual except that they say to use a dummy shaft ( a special LR part )

I just slidec the intermediate sfaft through and put on the gears and associated stuff as I go.

Then be patient and keep persisting till you get it all in.

If you ever thought about changing high range ratios this is the time to do it.

Cheers.

Cool, thanks. Ill have to try and find a workshop manual. Hopefully being in NZ wont damage my chances. Ive never thought about changing the ratios as ive only just got the rangerover, and 750x16 sats are the biggest im gonna run on it unless I do a toyota diff conversion B)

Might also need to slightly grind a little off the mushrooms at the largest part of the diameter (i.e. around the bolt pcd). The wheels do go on without doing this but can be a git to get off.

Well they are on. I had to do a little bit of grinding on the lip of the flange, but that was easy B)

I have had it out on a couple of hills and its great fun out there. Immensely more capable than the 2a when it was first taken out there (stock), its goes really well on sidelings and is very stable. Maybe thats because I havnt taken the sway bars out yet :unsure:
