  1. Cheers mate, that would be brill. I'm guessing its just a matter of unbolting the front axel from the chassis and yanking it back?!
  2. As fishflies says - I'm fairly sure it's stripped. Got stuck and realised only the rear wheels were spinning. The coupler spins with the engine but the shaft only spins when the front wheels move (and 4WD engaged). So I'm pretty sure it's the splines!
  3. Sorry I've been away for work. Yeah that's the one! I'm not sure about the coupler - I haven't taken the shaft off yet. So ideally looking for both!
  4. Tea I can do, but I don't know anything about these cookie things. I may be able to rustle up some Rich Teas or Mcvities Digestives however...
  5. Hey Sam! Cheers mate, much appreciated!! My 420 is 2015. Having a real time trying to find anything here in the UK!
  6. Hi guys, Wondering where to buy new parts for my 420 in the UK... I'm still looking for a new front propshaft and winter is coming! Any ideas? Everywhere I've found so far have been US based and charge big shipping fees. Cheers!! Robb
  7. Ok will do. I don’t have a service manual, can it be downloaded somewhere? ATV mechanic told me shaft can be removed by unbolting the diff and pulling it back a few inches. What could go wrong?
  8. Had another fiddle this morning and noticed that if 4WD is engaged then the shaft locks and will not turn (with the wheels are on the ground), but I can rotate it in 2WD. I guess this indicates that it is indeed the splines on the engine side that are stripped. Will bite the bullet and order a new shaft and joint... Thankyou both for the help! Robb
  9. I guess the only way to tell for sure is to take it out and take it look!
  10. So should I see the shaft physical shift back towards the engine? This doesn’t happen. But shifting the pushing the 4WD lever does turn the arm (where the red dot is)...
  11. Hey, yes it moves with the lever. I did think it could be loose (it doesn’t move a great distance) so used some grips to twist it all the way but it didn’t make any difference...
  12. So I put her up on sticks again and stripped the side off to get a closer look. To me it does seem to be worn splines, but perhaps there’s something I’m not taking into account? I uploaded a video showing the problem/inspection below, maybe a more experienced eye can confirm or shed some more light on the problem! cheers!
  13. Hi everyone, So my 2015 420 has lost 4WD to the front wheels. Local ATV mechanic reckons its the splines at the engine end of the front shaft. I'm guessing the shaft needs replacing, along with the joint that it connects to engine block with? Also, anyone know the best place to order parts from... in the UK? Cheers! Robb
  14. Well I moved here from southern England and my roots are Irish... but the Scots are very welcoming! You must come if you get the chance. Thanks again to everyone for the welcome! Good to meet so many of you!
