Hi

I have a 2003 NP MY04 Pajero GLX Wagon and recently went on a sandy track (sand dunes). I noticed a rapid fire (machine gun type) clicking sound coming from the rear diff/wheel area when the wheels began to spin. This was when in 4H and 2H so I am thinking that this may not necessarily be a 4WD issue but maybe a rear wheel/diff issue.

Has anyone experienced such......do I have a problem ???

Thanks, Mark

I would guess it is your traction control working that you heard.

Could be a uni joint on the tailshaft on the way out maybe!

Or it might be the rear diff is LSD type.

A stone caught between rear breake disc and rotor.

Wheel trim not fitted correctly?,

Thats 4 possibilities I can think of.

These machines sometimes have an issue with dry splines on the rear CV joint/axle stub. Can be cured by taking the nut off the stub axle, which allows you to pull the shaft slightly out of the hub and put some grease on it. Make sure it's properly torqued up when replaced.

See The Pajero Club forum for more details.

Post your question on this site.
It could be the electric traction control.
