Re: Front end clunk

For those that are interested the clunk was due to a bolt on the front RHS strut that was tight but wasn't seated properly. They undid it - reseated it - re tightened it and presto clunk was gone!

No problems with it here. It is above the mirror and you can see the "camera" hole un obstructed. This is a Laredo. Not sure if any more bling on overland would be affected.

Re DPF. Our GC spends 90% of its time doing short 5-10 minute trips sometimes doing up to 2,000kms like this before a decent trip. No troubles with the DPF.
