Diary of 300 TDI install into the Range Rover - Updated 02.05.2005

Day 18 Front Axel

As the Disco had ABS I did not want to use this, but the front brake calliper had only a single brake line, I decided to swap the RR calliper onto the Disco Axel.

This was not a problem, until I noticed how seized the RR callipers were, so I sent them off to my mate Mark at for a full rebuild.

While I was playing with the front axel I also installed by Graeme Cooper front diff protector.

I wanted to remove the ABS Sensors from the front hubs, but I mistakenly undid the top swivel pins as I was careful not to damage the ABS Sensors - which are now For Sale

I later found out that the ABS Sensors can be easily removed from the swivel pins without removing the swivels pins from the axel!!!
