So I was off roading on the weekend and broke something. Not 100% sure what, but it no longer drives unless in Diff lock lo/high.
I took off the tunnel and can see when out of diff lock the front shaft spins but no drive. Trying to do some reading on it and could it be the front halfshafts? I'm not 100% familer with the vehicle yet and wanted some advice
Cheers

David has an ex-MOD 110, so it is more likely a 10 spline shaft or diff than a CV. Most likely a shaft based on the lack of other symptoms.

In any case, you still need to pull the spindle to fix. Jack up each tire and spin. You can hopefully feel which side is broken and which is attached.

If you want a hand, let me know, I can pop around. I would suggest doing the work yourself. All Defender owners should know how to do this so that they can do it in the field. I also have some helpful tools like a shaft extractor that can save a bunch of work.

Short shaft break at the root of the diff spline. The broken bit was too stuck for the magnet, so it ended up being a full diff pull.
