    Default Pajero query

    Hi gents

    Might be a weird question, but maybe someone has experienced the same issue. On my Gen4 LWB Pajero, something feels loose in the middle, underneath the car. Especially when pulling away, going over speed humps and breaking (no noise though).

    I have reconditioned the rear drive shafts early in Dec, as that made a knocking noise when pulling away and stopping - that issue is sorted.
    Don't think this issue is related in any way to the rear drive shafts.

    Mileage on the car is 132,000km

    Thanks for hearing me out.

    Do you have an aftermarket bashplate on the Pajero? They are prone to making funny noises, even when super tight, due to chassis flex.

    edit - I just read your post again - you say no noises. Then how do you experience this looseness?

    I can feel it, on my feet. Don't know how to explain, almost like a rolling feeling.

    Ah yes. Can definately be that one. Forgot about that feeling under the feet.

    Try it with full tank, half tank etc and note if it changes the feeling under feet.

    I think Kurt nailed it.

    Nope, definitely not that. Have the vehicle for a year and a half now. And it only started recently.

    No it's definitely not that,

    As a member mentioned with a message it might be the crossmember bushes on the gearbox. Going to have that checked out.

    I also had a strange noise from underneath.. turned out that the aluminium tread on the side-bar step ( under doors ) was loose .
    Drilled out the old rivets and replaced with nylon lock-nuts 100%

    Only thing with mine is, there is no noise.

    Gearbox mounting? On my pajero sport there is a rubber mount that is roughly in the centre of the car. It is attached to a crossmember there
