Discovery Transmission System

Just bought a 2003 TD5ES and have a question ref the transmission. My car
has no diff-lock fitted (despite the sticker by the transfer lever) will
this hinder the off-road traction? My previous car (Freelander) had a
viscous coupled system that engaged automatically, does the disco also have
this?

The Disco has ETC/EBD which is basically using the ABS to brake a free
spinning wheel.

If you want a diff-lock the kits are available to enable the one which
*may* be present on your T-box - I'm sure somebody will pop up and give
you part numbers and a price shortly along with how to tell if yours
can have it.

For the linkage there are several options from groveling underneath
with a 10mm spanner via a home made linkage that you operate from the
side of the car to retrofitting the complete cable/lever assembly etc
from a Disco I (I think).

Have a google and the "How To..." on http://www.disco2.com/ has some
information about the CDL and interaction with the ETC.

The forums at disco2.com were good but they have been broken for what
looks like about a month. You can get the topic listings but trying to
a view a topic gives "SQL Error : 1016 Can't open file:
'phpbb_posts_text.MYD'. (errno: 145)" B-(

The transfer box needs the CDL spigot on the outside, you can feel for
this from underneath I forget exactly where you need to feel/look but
that is on the web.
