Question about 1998 Land Rover Discovery
I recently purchased a 1998 Discovery Series 1. For roadworthyness front axles seals required replacing and now I have noticed that when reversing LHS front wheel only will lock up.
Note if reversing with accelleration no lock up will occur, but with free rolling(also being in nuetral) it will travel approx. 3-5 metres then lock up.
I am not sure if this has anything to with how the the axle shaft has been put back in or not.
There are not problems in travelling in a forward direction.
Further info-1998 Series1-3.9V8i-Manual Transmission-No bearing noises(Differential/Gearbox).Would really appreciate some feedback on this problem
Make sure that the brake caliper bolts are tight and check for a scraping sound before the wheel locks up , if so the caliper could be jamming against the rim.While rolling backward turn the steering and note the effect.If this changes then the c.v. joint has been assembled incorrectly.Check if the diff-lock has been disengaged properly.

Hi, one posibility is that your brake calipper can be locking up ,you can check it by lifting the vehicle from that side and have someone to apply and release the brake it should roll free as soon as the brake is released......good luck......
