"Locking" front wheel - 2002 2.7 CRD RHD
I have a strange problem with my Jeep. If I reverse on full left lock I feel a "kick" from the left front wheel, as though it is momentarily locking.
This only happens first thing in the morning when the vehicle has been standing overnight. If I drive a couple of miles, park up and immediately do the same manoeuvre the "locking" doesn't happen.
My own experience with limit slip diffs of the clutch type is that this can happen if the plates are set too tight. Is the front diff limit slip, or is this just a cold, or no, oil symptom?
I can't help thinking that this may be related to the excessive wear I get on the left side of the tread of the LH front tyre, considerably more than the right hand edge, and no such wear symptoms are visible on the RH wheel. Any ideas on that?
Any comments re unusual tyre wear would be most appreciated.
