    Default Pajero Gen 3 Click click in 4x4

    Note

    If you have an irregular click click when in 4H, 4HLc or 4LLc then check the CV joint on the front propshaft on the transfer case side.

    Mine is stuffed!

    waiting on Mr Propshaft to see if he can make a plan to repair or replace with a U-Joint.

    Mitsubishi wants R3521 excl vat (PE has one that can be shipped overnight or 2 days max)
    Mr Propshaft wants R2100 excl vat (replace CV with UJ via welding existing yoke to new UJ)
    Parthunt wants R1500 for a second hand one - PITA to make sure I get the correct one and it may fail shortly after. Plus waiting time and courier costs.

    I asked Mr Propshaft to be honest and tell me how he feels about welding the yoke. He sounded confident of his CO2 welding and reports no comebacks to date. Paired with that and the auto torque converter acting as shock absorber, I gave Mr Propshaft the go-ahead to fix the shaft.

    I don't have before pics but I'll post a pic of the refurbed shaft once it's done.

    All in R2223 for cutting out the CV, putting in a new UJ and servicing the existing UJ on the other end, plus balance, clean and paint.

    In my opinion a good price for what seems like an outstanding job.

    That welding looks very neat. I guess time will tell how long it last, but it does look strong

    The movement on the pajero is minimal as the only play on the shaft will be the give on the transfer case and front diff mountings.

    I'm just glad it wasn't the rear shaft that played up as that is a carbon fibre shaft and I would have had to ask Mr Propshaft to make me an entire new shaft of steel.

    Some more pics attached.

    Luckily the Torque converter acts as a shock absorber so there will be no excessive shock to it.
