Land Rover Defender 6 speed (Getrag MT82)
The 6 speed gearbox used in Land Rover Defender (2007 on) 2.4lt 2.2lt Puma is considered a good box but is prone to some faults that can be easily repaired. Common issues include gearbox rattle in neutral at idle & at speed, drive line clunk or excessive backlash making smooth driving & gear changes difficult.

Most of the above issues are caused by: faulty clutch assembly, poor preload or excessive wear on centre diff. worn outer axle splines.

Centre diff unit out of a Land Rover Defender 2.2lt puma needing new side shims & selective thrusts to obtain the correct preload. The wear (or lack of correct preload) inside this diff unit is a major cause of drive line backlash.

HTE Heavy duty axles set for Land Rover Defender TD5, 2.4lt & 2.2lt Puma, includes new half shafts & drive flanges with longer splines.
