Re: Forewward-Backward Motion

Hi Dries,
Splines, splines and more splines.....You might want to check prop-shaft, side-shafts and diff spider assemblies....In that order. I had those done to remove that pull away CLUNK!

Regards
Theo

ps. It's rather sad to see so little movement on this forum.

Re: Td5 cutting out

Hey Guys,
Seriously this time... :roll: ...Pull all relevant fuses (Big and Small) and check for corrosion or dirt on the contact blades. It's only 12 volt passing through there and any resistance due to corrosion and dirt makes a difference. Hope you come right.

Re: Power Stearing

Hi Dries, Maybe let out some more bubbles.... :lol: Now seriously, Lift the front wheels off the ground. Open bleed screw a tad then start the car. Start turning the steering left and right with small turns going wider and wider, checking and correcting the fluid level. This should help the air lock...

Re: Td5 viscose fan bearing

Hi Joos,
I see on your profile you have a Hi Capacity pick-up. Mine is too, just Td5. :D

Re: Td5 viscose fan bearing

Hi Joos, Thanks for that link. Unfortunately I was pushed for time as I am on the road most the time. I took it to someone that was referred to me by the guy I buy all my spares from. R 1 850.00 and about 5 hours later is not to bad. When I got my car back, the noise was still there. I made a u-turn...

Td5 viscose fan bearing

Hallo? Is there anyone out there? Viscose fan bearing starting it's nonsense. Only when I give it gas in first and second gear, I hear a little screech. However, if I drive like an old man (which I am ) then all seems ok. No noise. Any short cut besides head and sump off? Anyone knows the correct be...

Big skrik.

Td5......Pulled away from the traffic light on T junction and had no power steering. Looked down to the instrument panel and saw battery lite on. Pulled over and opened bonnet. All seemed in order but for fresh oil on crank pulley. Called my friend to tow me home with his Isuzu :lol: :roll: . Got ho...
