Hi all, I am having a touch of trouble with a recently acquired (second hand) freelander. It's a 54 plate and the 2.0ltr Diesel model. The main symptom at present is a strange clunking noise whilst turning, especially under full lock. It doesn't appear to affect handling at all but it is still slightly concerning. Perusal of the landrover forums suggests that it may be a worn out viscose coupling that has damaged the IRD (what is this btw?) or alternatively a drive shaft issue, but i am certainly no mechanic so i can't really diagnose the problem further. It doesn't appear to be short on power or sluggish, even when reversing under full lock but the issue is persistent, especially on sharp left turns. Any ideas?
PS, please no comments about the general unreliability of Landrovers, I am well aware of their track record, but this is my fathers purchase so I had no say in the matter the stubborn old git...
