Rear axle clank when changing direction between forward and reverse (Discovery 2)

Hi,

I have a Discovery Series 2 TD5. When I change direction between forward and
reverse there is a clank from the rear axle. It is definitely not a sticking
brake pad. It seems to be coming from the O/S wheel.

Any clues please?

Regards.
Paul.

Any, all, or none of the following:
Worn bushes.
Loose radius arm.
Wheel nuts loose.
Wheel bearing.
Worn 1/2 shaft.
Hamster with a hammer.

Does the Disco II still have a ball joint at the top of the rear axle
casing? If yes, add that to the list of possibles.

Bush at front or back of the radius rod?

Re: Rear axle clank when changing direction between forward and reverse (Discovery 2)

Quite possibly looseness in the splines. LR issued a Tech Service Bulleting
on this for the P38A/DII. The cure is to Loctite the hub to the axle. My
P38a is doing on the left rear (is that the O/S?)

Bulletin N o : 0001
CDS. ref: L8431bu
Range Rover
Discovery Series II Issue: 2
Date: 26.04.2000
AFFECTED RANGE:
All Range Rover up to VIN: YA 434637 YA 435750
All Discovery II (System 2) up to VIN: Introduced at Job 1 YA 260194
All Discovery II (System 1) in VIN range: Introduced at XA 900000 to XA
907212

PROBLEM:
CLICKING NOISE FROM REAR AXLE
When pulling away from rest in either direction, a clicking noise may be
heard from
the rear of the vehicle.
CAUSE:
Excessive spline movement on either:
a) The rear axle shaft to hub spline, (Range Rover).
b) The rear differential flange to pinion spline, (Range Rover and Discovery
II).
ACTION:
At the above VINs, the application of Loctite to the above spline locations
was
introduced during manufacture.
In case of customer complaint on a vehicle within the affected range,
apply Loctite
648 to the axle shaft or pinion spline as detailed below.
NOTE: Loctite 640, previously specified on Issue I of this bulletin, has
been
cancelled for use on vehicles in service due to its extended cure time.
When reassembling rear hubs or rear diff flanges for any other reason,
regardless
of VIN, apply Loctite 648 to splines as detailed below.
NOTE:Loctite has been applied to Discovery II rear hub splines since the
introduction
of the model. Should a Discovery II rear hub be dismantled for any reason,
regardless
of VIN, Loctite 648 should be used on reassembly as detailed below.

and so on..
