Love those Tercell 4x4 wagons but they sure suffer from road noise.

Robert - between (esp.) you and Petros - you guys are THE gurus of T4WDs!
I made this a sticky; it would be a shame for it to be lost in posts to come in the next xx years!
Maybe we need a special Forum for only xirdneh's Repair Guides' videos?
Props!

OT, but I just added some oil to Goldie. Mind, she has nearly 198K on the clock and she took only less than 1/2 quart of oil after the last just over 2K miles! So, I may never have to use your latest video, but I am sure others will!
This was after I replaced the front crank seal back in 2016. It did not leak a lot, but over the years ... And the front is still dry!
Another of those "I fixed it and it still works!" :o :shock: :o :D
And Yes, being a retired OF with another vehicle, I only drive less than 3K per year nowadays. :oldgeek: :(

i have mentioned before that a video section is needed. It might encourage others to make some videos. Sure would like to watch someone do a differential.
