Re: Companion Shaft Pull Out - Circlip Replacement

This what the pull out looked like. - Simply take a hammer and a piece of wood and knock it back in place to prevent further oil loss and until you can get to your destination or garage. - Top up to fill the diff again. When I got home, I took out the diff sump plug and drained some oil in order to ...

Companion Shaft Pull Out - Circlip Replacement

I towed my bike on a small bike trailer a few months ago and noticed a gear oil smell when I stopped. Upon closer inspection I saw gear oil all over the trailer, my back bumper and underneath the car - aaaaand it gave me a big fright. My rear diff seemed buggered. After some Google research, I ident...

Thanks Roelf. I reckon he is still kicking himself :)

But wait - what is that I see in your profile pic, did the prodigal son return? Or is it mere for memory's sake?

Re: Gen 3 Towbar: Bolts stripped/ripped out

If I can gain access to the inside of that frame/tube, I can repair the damage myself I reckon. However, I am not sure if I can gain access from the back - will probably have to remove the back bumper to see. I agree on the 6 and even 8 bolt options. It is easy enough to weld a gusset plate on the s...

Gen 3 Towbar: Bolts stripped/ripped out

My towbar's 4 bolts (or the nuts welded on the inside of the body/frame) seemed to have taken a beating over the years. *I unintentionally moved a gentleman's GTi Golf a meter or so forward into a pole, when I reversed into the back of his precious VW. GTi had damage front and back, but the Pajero h...

Wish I could get that consumption! :? Do you use her for heavy towing?


:D

No, I very very seldom tow anything. I normally drive 75km to work, open hilly road. Sometime I drive a lot further.

Running costs of my 2005 Gen3 DID for 2015/2016 - FYI

It's that time of the year again. I compiled a spreadsheet from my SARS logbook, listing all costs concerning my Pajero diesel for the financial year 2015/2016 and is as follows: Average running cost per km: R2.00 (previous R2.28) - Total km traveled: 65,154 (previous 56,265km) - Total diesel used (...
