Propshaft

PostPost by: Kerryt333 » Thu Oct 27, 2011 6:42 pm

Have just removed rear suspension & fuel tank from my +2, with a view to removing the diff to do diff mounts & pinion oil seal. When the diff is out , does anyone know if the propshaft comes out through the back ?

for me you unbolt the prop to diff. Then slide back towards diff. unbolt gearbox mount single bolt. lift gearbox with trolley jack max. slide propshaft forwards and out

Hi Alan,
Really swift reply!
What I should have asked is ,with the diff out of the way, as an alternative to removing gearbox mounting as in workshop manual, will the propshaft come out through the back.
