  1. Towing when under SORN

    Great piece of information.
  2. CVRT Coolant?

    I have used a smear of Hermitite and sometimes modern silicone seal on the fitting or pipe before putting the hose on. I also if it was a hose that had accessability problems doubled up on the Jubillee clips without having to resort to other measures. Not wanting to upset any R.N. personnel. by not using their clips

    I cannot remember the exact legal wording but basically yes.
  4. CVRT Coolant?

    I have a friend who drove CVRTs while in service. He says the cause of most breakdowns in his experience was water hoses blowing off and dumping the coolant.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of woodwork, mind your fingers just the same.
  13. Yes, If you put it in 4wd to stop the propshaft turning, turn one the other will go opposite way. This way you will be able to get a idea if the Sun and Star gears have been damaged. If you take it out of 4wd the Crown wheel and pinion will turn if there is a level plug in the diff case you can check the teeth as you turn it. Have you drained any of the oils and looked for debris?
