    Default Freelander 2 IRD

    It looks like SWAMBOs Freelander IRD has failed. When pulling away the front wheels spin...

    Couple of questions;
    1. Why and how does it fail ?
    2. Can one make it better so it wont fail again?
    3. Can the IRD be repaired, and who can do it?
    4. Does LP4A sell IRD units?

    its unlikely its actually the IRD, the sleeve between the IRD and gearbox loses its splines. normally you replace it and all good. Its around 2500 from landrover but unfortunately they have no stock at the moment so would be a special order.

    Is the vehicle stripped?

    Not stripped. SWAMBO still driving around.

    Feedback, fortunately it wasnt the IRD.. It was a CV on the R/H rear sideshaft that stripped due to a torn CV boot. Fixed by The Gearbox Company.
