Hi, Marcus, New here. I have a Defender Td5, can I engage the diff lock while on the move, without pushing the clutch? Is there a maximum speed for doing this??

Regards, Marcus; Mallorca Spain

you can engage the diff lock whilst moving, but all wheels must be moving at the same speed, and that should be about 5 MPH.... and you need to push in the clutch.... so clutch > CDL to neutral > CDL to lock or any other position > release clutch and move forward...... -A

Do yourself and your truck a favor and don't. Although Rover says it is OK there is extra wear caused when you don't really need to.

Engaging clutch has no bearing on using the CDL. Changing from hi-range to lo-range transfer gearing is only to be done at 5mph or less, or stopped with the trans in neutral. (Unless you own a new Range Rover) As far as I knew, the CDL may be engaged at "any" speed. of course do not engage CDL when on dry conditions unless you plan on traveling in a straight line. Changing to low is actually better to do between 2-5mph than stoppped. Less wear.
