" THE CAR STARTS AND DRIVES AS IT SHOULD, HOWEVER IT HAS A WHINE WHILE DRIVING, DOESN'T AFFECT THE DRIVE OF THE CAR , MIGHT BE SOME WHEEL BEARINGS "
- 150,000 miles
Firstly , what might the whine be , secondly , what else is there to look out for on this model & year ( someone suggested dodgy electrics ? ) Lastly , is the price about right ( not knowing what the whining is about ? )
I currently have a Fourtrack , but am rapidly losing the battle with rust and am looking for something a bit more modern , mainly for shooting , so a fair bit of off road work
You'd need to listen as to where the whine is coming from. I'd put some money on the rear diff. They came out of the factory with nose bearings that were too small and that put too much pressure on the gearing. Many whine and many fail.
Not that expensive, in the grand scheme of things. About £500 for an upgraded whole rear diff.
Could be elsewhere too though, but that would be my first point of call, unless you have paperwork to say that it's been done.
