Steering Shaft Coupler Disc
Reading earlier today about the "disc of death" on a beach buggy facebook page, I was wondering if one has to be concerned about the steering shaft coupler discs on a T3? I believe there are two of them. So if the vehicle is over thirty years old, should one be inspecting them and replacing them or does one get fair warning? Should they fail, what are the consequences?

RE: Steering Shaft Coupler Disc
If it fails you wont have steering input, never seen one fail, i think ther are 2 of them on a 2wd combi, syncro only has one

i think they fail on beach buggies because the steering angle changes from the normal position to a slightly lower position, putting stress on the coupler

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life
