    Tracking left and right constantly when on road

    Hi Guy’s, just about to buy a wolf 110 and test drove it the other day. Everything was good apart from it tracking left to right, constantly requiring adjustment, as I drove along the road. My other ex military 110 does not do this so noticeably (I know they are never perfect) When asked he...

    Sticky Steering Wheel

    When my S3 has been standing for any length of time in wet weather, the surface of the steering wheel gets sticky - leaving black deposits over the driver's hands which are a bu99er to get off. After about 20 minutes of driving, it's smooth and dry again. Any ideas?

    Need a decent recon steering box. Any tips?

    The steering box (4-bolt) is leaking badly from the top of the box. It was fitted 2 1/2 years ago. Its a recon unit from Paddocks. I suspect that the unit must have been rebuilt using B**tpart (S**tpart) seals due to their apparent poor quality (unless they managed to find an even worse...

    Steering column noise

    Hi, I have a P38 from 1999 and since a few weeks now the car makes a noise when I steer but only when the car is still cold, so the noise disappears after a few minutes when the car gets warmer. The steering fluid is topped up, so any idea what could cause this? :confused: Thanks!

    Repair Guide Whirring Noise From Steering Column Fix On Disco 2

    A rather annoying but inconsequent issue that sooner or later comes up in Discos series 2 (either V8 or S5): on moving the starter switch to position "II" a vibrating sort of whirling noise comes from aside the steering column. The trouble lies with the in-car temperature sensor (ICTS) mounted...

    And I thought it was a feature!

    Since buying my series 3 in the summer I have been fighting the steering, accepting the vagueness, the wander and the way it would kick back at me on a bad surface. Then I noticed what looked like some fixing points on the front chassis and steering rod – fixings for a steering damper. £25...

    My new toy!

    OK guys so as promised, if maybe a little late, here are the pictures and story behind my new Land Rover Series III SWB. It was decided by myself and a group of friends that all my cars should be named after former prime ministers with a random title prefixed. So here he is, Major John Major...

    What was at first a simple job..... aka will I never learn!

    At last I'm servicing the brakes on Heisenberg, my Sr 2A SWB petrol. From what I've read on this board I think my steering is quite positive, but a few clonky TREs, so replacing these at the same time. Thought I'd start with the front since this does most of the braking. Usual oil leaks...

    Quite a bit of play in D110 TD5 steering

    Going to be driving a friend's 2006 Defender for about 500 km or so this weekend. One thing I find bothering is that there is a lot of play in the steering. Several centimetres. It's play I know shouldn't be there, as I've driven other TD5s before this one. I don't really know a lot about...
