Hi Guys, I have a great 1993 vitara 1600. I thought I heard a crack around the rear of the car but found nothing wrong. A few drives later the rear wheels locked at low speed, but then cleared. A few days later I felt a shudder and graunching at the diff. Again it cleared and drove fine. I then drained the rear diff and found what feels liker a broken bolt which unfortunatley will not fit the drain hole but this has obviously been causing the problem. I have cleaned up the magnet to keep the loose bolts in place and replaced the oil. Since then the vehicle has run faultlessly. Any ideas welcome! or just leave it? Best regards Steve

i woodn't risk driving it at all till i've opened it up and had a look i once had a fourtrack that the bairing went on witch locked the axle and half riped it off the back of the jeep and that was at 30mph

if this was to happen to you it could end up killing you or someone els!!! really not worth it!!!
