Exclamation Defender 110 Backlash in rear diff?

Hi guys... I have a 1996 Defender 110 that "clunks" when engaged in gear. It has been doing this for years but seems to be getting worse. Is this normal or should I be concerned and try to fix it?... Thanks for your advice... I have a video and photos of the problem if you need to see them to advise...

Might be one of your shafts is worn

Your video does not seem to work.

If it is from the rear axle only, then I would first check the drive flanges. They commonly wear out, especially in the later axles like yours. The flanges are made of cheese and those axles have seals that prevent lubrication getting to the flange splines.

It is a 1996, so should not have the problem.

Any idea what it costs for parts to rebuild the worn shafts?

Flanges are worn, 90% chance. Pull them off, six bolts, 60 seconds of work with an impact to check. I would just order new flanges now. I seal with RTV but they do have gaskets.

They are pretty cheap. Might be worth spending more for quality aftermarket ones though instead.

Stock part: Hub Drive Flange (RUC105200 Same Fit As Part # RUC105200 ) - Land Rover hubs from Atlantic British

Upgraded flanges: Ashcroft Transmissions

Quote:
Please note these later drive flanges are designed to run in a 'dry, non-lubricated' condition and because of this they are prone to the spline wearing from 'fretting / corrosion' leading to failure. They benefit from regular inspection / lubrication.

Another thing to look at is your driveshaft. The U-joints do fail over time and it's clear from numerous posts on here that people don't bother greasing or replacing them.

Still not working. Seems like you are not attaching a video, but attaching a private link or something.

Once a series guy always a series guy. Yes, 5 bolts per side on the defender.

I'm on a computer. It says "video not found or access denied".
