How to, Retro Fit an Active Rear Diff

Post by Bodsy » Tue Jul 19, 2011 10:27 am

I'm pleased to announce the latest How To from disco3club.co.uk

Following Spooky's stirling efforts to challenge Land Rover's "you can't do that" statement, the following Link contains the details on How To - Retrofit an Active Rear Diff to a Disco3.

If you have any comments or questions, then please post them on here.

Ian (on behalf of Spooky ;) )

Don't suppose it's the same on a Full-Fat ?? :whistle: :whistle:

I'd have a go if it was, just because.

excellent write up though, and much better reading than the current techie whitepaper that I'm ploughing through.

Jase, THIS is the Dark Side, mate :sofa:

I never published this guide (or its predecessor) on D3.co.uk. 'Fodda' used it as a guide to complete the job on his D3 in Norway (as I well remember; I was bombarded with PMs at the time!), but I don't think he published it there, either!
