  • Shift Clunk

    Hi

    Paj Sport is making a massive clunk sound that can also be felt when shifting from park to reverse. Especially after parking on an incline with park brake engaged. Does this mean the park brake isn't working and putting stress on the park gear or is there something else afoot? Service coming up soon and would love to tackle it at the same time.

    Hi Leon,

    Are you placing the transmission in N with you foot on the brake, applying the park brake, releasing the foot brake so the park brake takes up the load and then putting the transmission in P?

      I put it in park with brake applied and engage the park brake until the light stays solid.

        That is your problem.
        The Pajero Sport (Pajero and Challenger) have drum in-disc park brake, so when the park brake is applied and the vehicle is on an incline the vehicle will move slightly downhill after the park brake is applied as the backlash in the park brake system is taken up. If the vehicle transmission is already in P when the park brake is applied then this vehicle movement loads up the parking pin so there is a clunk when moving the gear lever out of P, the steeper the incline the larger the clunk.
        If you use this process then you will not load up the park pin and you know the park brake is working correctly.

        With foot brake applied, select transmission to N, apply park brake, release foot brake and allow the vehicle to move slightly downhill and then move the gear selector to P.
