Loud "KLUNK" on max turning of steering.

My diesel 3.0 tdi grx has made this loud "KLUNK" sound every time I am moving forward and turn the wheel fully to either the left or right. Is it play on the front ball joints, and more importantly is it serious??

Re: Suspension

I fitted Ironman performance coils with gas shocks. The difference from when I bought the vehicle with original Nissan coils & shocks is amazing - but then she had sagged in front and was bottoming out. It would be great to feel the difference between the "cheaper" Ironman and the considerably more ...

Re: Which tyre is best

Thanks guys for the info, I have also recieved some feedback from a tyre dealer who does not recommend changing the tyre's profile, as the larger diameter, he says, will cause unnesscessary stress on all the suspension components - tie rods etc. as well as the steering mechanism. So that's put paid ...

Re: What you like about your Patrol!

It has evrerything a man could possibly want in a vehicle, the sheer size and macho image it portrays simply commands respect! She simply does everything I want her to, and won't back out of any obstacle in her path. The ride and cruiseability is superb and consumption is excellent for such a heavyw...

Re: Clutch

I had no problems with my 30 TDI, also drove in low range both up and down in Jan 2009. Maybe a leak in the clutch master cylinder??

Re: 3.0 TDI with erratic loss of boost

Thanks Koos, for your very thorough response. At least this is not a major problem that will cause me sleepless nights, or leave me stranded on the side of the road. Nice to have this kind of support from fellow Patrol Manne! I bought my Patrol firstly because it has been the one vehicle that has ha...

3.0 TDI with erratic loss of boost

Hi guys, I am a new kid on the block! I just bought my 2003 3.0 TDI GRX a year and a half ago (eventually!) at 118 000 km's. I have had a number of little problems over this time, but since December I have been experiencing a strange problem where the vehicle suddenly loses power when traveling at a...
