I have a 4 year old Pajero wagon.

Recently the gear box and transfer case blew up.

It was due to the breathers sucking dust.

The service mechanic should have installed filters / non return stops knowing where the vehicle was going.

Has anyone had a similar problem?

Lost One.

Sounds unlikely to me. Mitsubishi should have installed filters/non rtn stops being a 4wd as toyota does. Hard to believe they don't have such devices on their breathers - are they simply open?

Post the question on the forum at and see what they have to say.
We have had a 2000 NM 3.5 L petrol in which we did 120,000 kms in all sorts of conditions and now a 2004 NP 3.2 L DiD with nearly 80,000 kms and have to say the auto tramnsmission is just fabulous.

Both cars were subject to dust, sand and waterin reasonably rough but not extreme conditions and came through with flying colours. Both were used to tow an dirt road van of about 1800 kg.
