Vented Brake Discs & Stub Axle Bearings

Agree with Philip. Also, the standard hubs (with/without QRG vented kit) also used castellated nuts and split pin. Effect of a split pin in a nut done up to about 200 ft.lb or more :? :? :? .

Not pry it off, but just enough to get a screwdriver behind it to remove the fixing screws of the baseplate. Use a thin screwdriver!

Fuel hoses again!

So the replacement breather connects from the T piece to the rollover valve... Is there another one, or maybe a drain, because one end of a pipe was cable tied pointing downwards near the diff?

TD's Daily Ti thread

Coming back to the noisy tappet issue, I think I've "cured" it: new hearing aids!
Got a pair of latest GN Resound Quattros and hearing is much improved while car sounds much smoother.
Just need to find the car performance improvement setting on the hearing aids now. :roll: :roll:
