Disco handbrake failure

Hi all,
Anyone know if the oil seal on the transfere box output shaft (handbrake end!) can be fished out and replaced without opening the tf box?

Usual problem of contaminated shoes. Funnily enough the handbrake cable has just seized as well
Discovery 300tdi 1999.

Tim.

Coool

Thanks guys, Cool website. Mine is a later version handbrake, but otherwise looks not too different.


I'm off to get me a kit of bits and some elastoplast.

I had the same thing, then it let go on Swanage slip, so I junked it in favour of a disc brake conversion by X-eng engineering

X-eng brake

It's a very good kit, fitted without any mods (rare for a Land Rover part) and strangely enough once fitted the leaking seal didnt. Other X-brake owners have report the same thing.

I doubt very much if I'll ever go back to the drum brake originally fitted.

And if you join LR4x4 and buy from X-Eng via the site I think you get a discount
