  1. Prop shaft stuck to transfer case.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I’m in the process of removing the transfer box from my 2007 S/C but the front prop shaft won’t come away from the case. I’ve got all 6 bolts out but it won’t budge. I’m assuming it is rusted into place. I’ve tried penetrating fluid but no luck. Tempted to use the hammer but don’t want to...
  2. Front Prop Shaft movement 95 RRC LWB

    Range Rover Classic
    Just finished replacing the viscous coupling in my Range Rover classic. I installed the front output flange with the big nut. Torqued that down to specified torque (a lot!). Installed the front prop shaft and noticed some movement in the shaft when I grab the end closest to the viscous coupling...
  3. 2008 RRS Front Prop Shaft

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I have a 2008 RRS and started getting a vibration at about 50 mph, apparently the front prop shaft is failing. Figuring this would be an easy fix, I ordered a new prop shaft online and began my disassembly. I have all the bolts out but the shaft still wont come out. What am I missing? I know...
  4. Transmission dip stick rubbing against prop

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi Folks, I parked my 96 p38 up after a couple of times finding it to intermittently not engage into any gear and refusing to start. After a few days(today) I was going to look at the problem only to discover a large puddle of transmission fluid which raised my wallets heartbeat a little. On...
  5. Front Prop Shaft Slip Joint Orientation

    Range Rover Classic
    So according to RAVE, the front prop shaft on a '95 RRC should be oriented such that the slip joint is fitted to the t-box However, I noticed mine was flipped the other way, i.e., slip joint was fitted to the diff. I don't recall when this would have changed, but can someone confirm which...
  6. Front driveshaft a little out of phase on the Classic?

    Range Rover Classic
    I still have a little vibration up front. It is usually at around 58 mph, and you must be neither accelerating nor decelerating to hear it. The best way to hear it is to back off slightly from an acceleration and try to hold that. It is just a little vibration from up front, but it's...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Well after going through a bunch of junk used drive shafts (new is 1250) and also trying to find a cv joint rebuilder, I have decided to get a new 2006 drive shaft ($250 on ebay) and have an adapter plate fitted to the front cv joint which is smaller than the bmw cv joint. Has anyone tried this...
  8. Prop shaft snapped off

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Yesterday on the motorway the front prop shaft of my dads P38 snapped off. Unfortunately because it was still attached at the other end, it was still spinning and managed to put a hole in the bottom of the engine, causing a massive oil leak. We had felt a vibration for a couple of weeks, and it...

  10. Front prop shaft - not original?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi All, Trying to fix my transmission bit by bit. I supplied a good quality pair of uj kits which were fitted by my indie. Result was bad vibration. Reading up on this, we decided that the two parts of the shaft had become out of alignment during reassembly, so he tried to reset the phasing...

  12. Vibration > 60mph but only with payload.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi all, I’ve done a search and couldn't find anything with my issue, I'm getting very bad vibrations (like driving over a cattle grid) when driving over 60mph but only when I have a load in the boot. Its only just noticeable with passengers but as soon as any real weight is put in the back...
  13. DSE Rear Prop Shaft Question.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi all. I need to change the rear prop shaft on my 98 DSE. The one on there at the moment has a UJ at both ends. I've been offered a good replacement for free but it only has one CV and a rubber doughnut thing at the other. The question is, can I fit this to my car without mods? Many thanks. BC
  14. UJs... swap or change prop?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    As the title says really. As per my other thread it looks like front UJ is out. Question is, whether two UJs for around £25 delivered is going to be better than just changing the prop for 85? This will be a driveway job and i am worried i might have to take the old prop somewhere to get the...
  15. Help - Front Prop Shaft

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I just bought a (new to me) '98 range rover. It's leaking from everywhere - lol. I shook the front prop shaft and it had play. I'm planning on replacing the u-joints, but it seemed like there was som play where the shaft enters the diff. Also, when turning the shaft, I hear some noise by the...
  16. Full Thread Bolt ok for Prop Shaft?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hey guys, I am putting my front prop shaft back on after changing u-joints and I am also replacing the hardware since they were slightly damaged. Anyhow, I ordered the prop shaft bolts from British Pacific when I ordered the joints. They sent the 1in bolts that only fit the front half of the...
