Ok so i posted a note about my terrano on the 7th, about some crunchy gears. just had service people here, and looks like i need the throw out bearing replaced and prob a new clutch. what a pain in the butt. Possibly cost me close to a grand to fix. anyone else had this problem any advice on who i get to do the job?

Do they do $WD services too?. Looking for other than a Holden dealer for my 1997 Jackaroo (130,000 km).

Arkay,

Just a work shop but they work on anything, they rebuild my cars front end after a bingle, drives beter now that before, rebuilt the brother in laws supra, you'll find them in the phone book SA white pages - page # 389, ph 8337 1811. tell them Chris Blyth sent you may get you some discount.

or it may not.

Hope this helps.

Clutch kit say $240 non genuine & say 5 hours labor - not $1000 anyway.
If gearbox is at all doubtful pays to inspect it while U are spending $ to have it taken off.

G'day Peanut ,
i know this is not really relevant to your query but if ever you get a grinding noise coming from the rear of your Terrano when you turn into a tight parking spot , don't panick just yet !! Had this problem , mechanic checked it out and concluded that the components in the rear axle oil had broken down , new oil with friction modified and now right as rain .

Hey Brian!

thanks mate need all the info i can get. Had the clutch etc checked out by a clutch/ gearbox specialist, he reckons not too much to worry about, do need a new one but no great hurry, nothing wrong with throw out bearing, really pays to find someone who know what they are talking about. My gears are quite crunchy and he reckons that is due to too heavy oil, esp cold start.

Just a quick one - arethe diffs all "normal" diffs or did they have limited slip diffs fitted?
I have just bought the set of manuals for the D21 series that seems to include the wiring specs. I have the TD manual also. I see a Terrano club appears in almost all other european countries. Is there any desire to begin something as simple a "support group" for the Terrano I ?
Reading some of these problems I think we need it! Just replaced the water pump after 3 attempts to source the correct one! I not happy with the Auto but that sounds "normal"!
