    Default Disco 3 TDV 6 X/over pipe flex leaking

    Need to replace the X/over pipe on my D3 TDV 6 .. It is leaking on the flex and getting worse...

    Luckily removed the studs on the turbo side and installed bolts and copper nuts when we replaced the turbo.
    Might save a couple of hours

    "Not even (Necessary to remove propshaft) We replace crossover pipe in place, remove nothing. We replace them with a modified and much stronger flex joint,cost is about R2800 plus minus but it takes six hours to do the job. Replaced with an OEM pipe 7 months ago and it had popped again and Land Rover won't give me a warranty. Max 6 months had to replace it again with a modified one this time FOC.
    Take Care"

    Hopefully this is still available at Overland worx and can it be ordered ?
    Is it coming with a weaved Stainless bellow ?If so does it come with the Heat/fire proof insulation ? (Mine is in shambles)I do believe that Asbestos rope or tape is non existing any more...

    Had the same problem, a bitch to remove , but can be done, paid a home mech to remove, welded a template to bolt on, cut the flex es out and replaced with braided joints, and wrapped in heat cloth , and refitted.All well, 10 000km later
    They only seem to go because the bracket wasn't bolted back onto gearbox, or it came loose.
    Got some info somewhere will try and find

    Hey wena, where the hell is goba.

    Just 3 months ago I gave the last crossover pipe to a customer for nothing. It was specially ceramic coated in and out which dissipated the heat so insulation not necessary. Sorry man.
    What Koos Best showed you was exactly the way we repaired them.
    Jut check to make sure that there is a bracket that hold the pipe that is attached to the gearbox, because most of the failure causes were not attaching the bracket after removing and replacing the gearbox.
    Good luck and wear gloves to protect knuckles.

    [QUOTE=tgwinduna;4138318]Hey wena, where the hell is goba."

    Hi tgwinduna, Southern Mozambique...Bordering Swaziland ...(Very close to Samoras plane crash site)

    Pity I am to late, Yes, I have learned that if the x over is not properly secured it is prone to break at the flex.

    I will order from mr turbo and do a proper job

    Gloves, definitely...still got the scars from replacing the Turbo......

    Does anybody on the forum have details of where I can get a crossover pipe for the disco. Preferably with the braided flex parts.
