Re: Can I drive my 4x4 temporarily as 2wd?

Thanks for responding Richard. It's the transfer box to front differential prop shaft that's bust, not a drive shaft. I'm wondering whether I can get the broken prop repaired given it's the UJ pin that's broken rather than the shaft itself. I'm guessing it will need balancing again - does anyone know?

Can I drive my 4x4 temporarily as 2wd?

Hi. I'm REALLY struggling to find a front prop shaft for my '96 4x4 Granvia after mine snapped at the UJ. Have tried everywhere including BBC Spares. I desperately need to get mobile and I wondered whether I can drive it as it is for a couple of weeks? I know in the long term it's a no-no but how ab...

Sudden horrible vibration! Help Part 2

Further to my previous post I'm ordering a replacement front drive shaft (transfer box to front differential) tomorrow and my mechanic will fit it Friday. I've seen posts here about the importance of marking where the old shaft lined up in preparation for the new one but my mechanic says that's not ...

Re: Knocking front suspension *fix* & Gearbox Lock-Up

I'd be interested too! Especially if you manufactured them for sale with a warranty? You'd make a killing and I'd save £££! Thanks.

Re: Sudden horrible vibration! Help!

Update. Driving short distance this morning and a squealing sound followed by loud bang from underneath. Awaiting recovery. Would appreciate any thoughts. Cheers.

Sudden horrible vibration! Help!

Hi all. My '96 4x4 Granvia has suddenly started vibrating heavily! It's virtually undrivable. I hit a moderate pothole this afternoon - not hard but I'm guessing enough to finally break whatever's broken. Suddenly there's a heavy vibration through the steering wheel and even through the body. Everyt...

Good Vibrations?

Hi all. My '96 3.0 is starting to show its age with arthritic suspension creaks and a mildly incontinent engine. But, my main worries are; It's developed a loud vibration / buzz / rumble at 70mph. It's quite scary. It ONLY occurs on a very light throttle at 70 and if I ease off or accelerate it vani...

Remote locking on a '96 Granvia?

Hi all. Has anyone tried fitting a universal remote locking kit to a Granvia? Obviously I've got central locking so I'm hoping it wouldn't be too difficult? I'm assuming they didn't have remote locking from new and the fobs just gone missing over the years? Any advice would be appreciated.
