  1. Defender Re: The Puma that went, then didn't go & then went again....

    Ja pretty quick hey? Very happy.
  2. Defender Re: The Puma that went, then didn't go & then went again....

    I don't think we will be able to pin point exactly what the cause was, but I would imagine that with regular oil quantity checks and replacement ever now an then, all should go well.

    Not sure how...

  4. Defender Re: The Puma that went, then didn't go & then went again....

    I asked and paid for it to be done 20 000km ago... I'm thinking it wasn't properly done if at all. Not sure what was used.

    What would you suggest and how often?

    I will be doing it myself in...
  5. Defender Re: The Puma that went, then didn't go & then went again....

    I would think the same but unfortunately there was very little warning for this. 5 km from the first hint of a noise until destruction.
  6. Defender Re: The Puma that went, then didn't go & then went again....

    Worn, getting that replaced at the same time.

  10. Defender Re: The Puma that went, then didn't go & then went again....

    No, checked for that aswell.
  11. Defender Re: The Puma that went, then didn't go & then went again....

    Hmmmm....but where has it gone now?

    Mechanic reports ops normal. Tested all gears and ranges and diff locks, no fault found.
  12. Defender Re: The Puma that went, then didn't go & then went again....

    I don't think it would have stopped me in my tracks like it did while I was moving...but I'm also not saying it's impossible.
  13. Defender The Puma that went, then didn't go & then went again....

    Good day all,

    A couple of days ago my Defender decided to stop dead in it's tracks on Beyers Naude.

    Had was on a 140km trip home and had probably done around the time of "the incident".

    Defender Re: Defender won't go in to gear.

    Hmm... I tried so many things, so I'm not sure of I did that.

    I guess financially the clutch going would be the better outcome?
