L300 - intermediate steering shaft ?

Yes, the fluid I checked - it is all good.

I agree with your assessment, not a lot of movement in that shaft, but it is now noticeably different comparing to normal. Will post here result once I find the part .

L300 - intermediate steering shaft ?

Thank you for the link, Growlerbearnz. Checked it out and as expected there is nothing to service in the shaft. Needs replacement. Stiff steering section doesn't identify it as a potential problem, but the mechanic says it is after doing a number of tests. I guess the part is exposed to rain/splash ...

L300 - intermediate steering shaft ?

Hi folks,

Need some help here. My steering became really stiff, it has been diagnosed to the part on the picture. You can see it underneath ( connects steering gear and steering rack), goes horizontally from front to back. Is this the intermediate steering shaft ?

Thanks
Yaroslav

Re: L300 a/c - compressor wires

Thanks again , Growlerbearnz !.

Updated my previous post, but will confirm here again that connecting that wire to the switch made the trick - all good (cold ) now with A/C.

Re: L300 a/c - compressor wires

So my hanging wire is yellow & blue.... to it should go to thermo switch which is grounded (allows current over ...

Re: L300 a/c - compressor wires

Thanks a lot, Growlerbearnz!!!

You made me realize the cable I am chasing is not going to compressor.
It is a part of the A/C as I only see 12V on it when a/c button is pushed on. It is probable going to one of the relay / switch ?

Where does this one connect to ?

Re: L300 a/c - compressor wires

Thanks ChuckBlack! I have L300 1993, I am sure it is the stock compressor identical to the one in the ebay URL above. On these pics you will see 2 wires attached to the compressor - one short screwed in to the body of the compressor (ground (-)) - another goes UP and eventually connects to battery's...
