Eh up,

Have you tested the actual windscreen at all. I am sure I recall reading on here there can be a chance the bonds fail.

Also try the pollen filter drains at the front scuttle to see if it’s tracking from there somehow via the vent system, these drains sometimes get blocked with crud and leaves, soaks in via the pollen micrfilter

Hope you find it I had a leak in the same areas took me a while to track it to the door seal, clearly not where yours is.
good luck

Cheers i was using the Pelican as a guide on Saturday - thats when it stumped me as no mention of stripping of the inner wing lower steering splash guards !!!!!!!

What a faff with these in the way. I thought they would need to come ff but rather than bust something elected to wait and get some sage advice from the forum ( years of experience cocking up - i must be getting wiser in my old age)

Cheers for the tip on the bolts - assume they are stretch bolts then like a some head gasket ones, at a torque of 56nm plus quarter turn i will see what i think when i strip em out.

That’s the badger!

I was trying to shift it yesterday, 3 x plastic push fits holds it to the bottom subframe then 4 xscrews.

Bloody screws are locked solid so will free these off this week and then start a fresh on trying to do the diff next week if I get the screws sorted.

Cheers for all the help- it’s s right faff compared to my Shogun diffs .

Least I know the exact process now 👍

Will post progress next week as it’s not going to beat me.

Cracking mate- cheers

I thought you must need to remove the lower splash shields under the arch it had to be the only way I could see.

What a PIA! >:(

I note 4 of them seem to hold the ARB on - any issues with getting this back on once you drop the shield? Or am I wrong?


Thanks again

Evening all.

Need some help please

Trying to change front diff oil, ( see seperate  post) cannot fathom how to get to the nuts on the reverse of the splash  guard. How the hell do you get to them to drop the guard?

Tried this morning can only guess you need to remove the underwing plastic guards - really? Must be another way?

Can anyone assist?

Really want to sort the oil change,

I know there are 6 bolts and nuts need locking with a spanner from above but how?

Really appreciate any advice

Cheers in advance

The big steel guard is correct, two flaps in it , how the hell do you gat a spanner over the top to any of the nuts to hold it!!!

There no access to the nuts ???


I cannot fathom our unless you need to take the inner wing lower plastic shields off surely not ?


Cheers

Afternoon all,

Right - did the rear diff fluid change no problem, looked like it needed a change from the before and afters pics glad i did it:-

See pics below.

BUT

What the hell do you do to get the front metal splash guard off!!!!!

Choice Yorkshire dialect was used most of the morning !!!!!!

Please tell me you do not need to undo all the drivers side front wing plastic splashguards to get access to the F^&*ing 6  nuts that hold the steel plate on there not even captive and 4 of them hold the ARB on - surely not please

Gave up after pi$$ing around for a hour or so  - it must be simple and im missing the point -  somebody please tell me. ( not happy in case youd not guessed !!!!  :D >:( >:( :(

pics enclosed of spashguard under wing, i take it its the bottom part with 3 push fit plastic riverts and a  few M8 screws i really hope not )

Thanks for anyone input - its stumped me today and got hacked off

I might be wrong here so anyone please correct

As yours is the earlier mechanical transfer case - no electronics I think it might be a light weight ATF Dexron 111. Or try a goofing search on the BMW part no Moose04 quoted - might be a lead to follow up.
Checking my notes I’ve picked this up from somewhere- hopefully someone can confirm.

Good fun this post - learning every day.

Eh up, read a few posts from you on here glad to have your input ( even though your the wrong side of the Pennine 😄)

In terms of my initial post and due to fact I don’t have access to any programmes can I do the oil change and drive to my indie then to get a reset rather than “ risk” not doing a rest?

Any downside to doing the change of oil

Also any view on the alternate oil I have sourced ravenol tf0870?

Cheers in advance

Thanks again 👍

Eh up !

At least I’m on the right lines with my research so it seams, I recognise the ATC 500 reference to our drive boxes I’ve read that somewhere.

Torque settings are a help, for no reason whatsoever I’m expecting mine to be a bu€$¥r to get cracked off.

Interesting you have changed your oil without a reset on the transfer clutches, take it you felt or heard no difference.?

Where and what did you pay for the bmw oil - nearly fell over when dealers looking at £50+ per LITRE, hence why I’m looking at alternatives

Cheers for the input.
