Dave, if I could afford overalls, I'd put them on! I have gotten under the car with my socket set, but cant shift the sheared bolts, and don't have the kit to do it by myself. I could assemble the kit etc, but time is money etc, so a garage is my preferred option.

Jimbo,
Try Brooklaands 4x4 in Southampton. They are very good.

F me that must have been breaking up for a while to look like that!!!

The rubber doughnuts are a stupid thing and they do go especially on vehicles with lifted suspension. Having said that my last Discovery did 61000 in my care and never had it changed.

Main thing to remember is that once you take the propshaft off a Discovery the handbrake doesn't work...... best not to remember this as it rolls over your leg

(For any pedantic people, yes I know it will work if you put it in diff lock because it will then act on the front wheels as well)

So he could take the prop shaft off, put the diff lock in and drive it in 2 wheel drive up to Nashers slowly then ? Nasher could fix the prop whilst Jimbo fixes Nashers PC

I'll fix Nashers PC gladly, whether via landie or by bike!

Garage has just been on the phone, the propshaft flange is knackered, as is theflange that goes to the rear differential, so I'm on the phone to landie spares places...

Oh well…. You can just put it down to experience… you’ll know for next time what all that "clonking" is when you hear it… and hopefully catch it in time ...... before it ends up in the same state... again.

Yup. I might be young but I hope I'm learning. The learning curve with a land rover is a slightly more accelerated curve I find
