Re:


Hi Tony,
I found I did the exact same thing entering Goolwa Beach.
The entry is quite soft and to my suprise/demise, instead of flicking from AUTO to LOCK, I actually went back to 2WD.....oops
Dropped PSI's to 16 all round, 1 lower accidently, but after this and ALSO flicking of the ESP/ESC as mentioned above, all trouble were sorted and i was able to tackle almost as much as my mates 2009 Pajero, only reason not all was purely based on the tyres he has a 265 vs my 225 and my subtle amount less of ground clearance.

Watch the rear bar as always mentiond too, easy to catch it on a lil hump or rise in the sand!!!!

after I worked out the ESP off need to be done, I was able to some pretty gnarly stuff in the diesel Exy, got some on video too whilst we were there, hitting up some sand dunes with some 4wd tracks littered through them, (not the conservation sand dunes, the one from all the dredging of the mouth)

Dont despair, try these few simple tips and youll be right to go.

Re: 4WD doesn't kick in on sand, but does up on blocks.


Agree with the above including you can't tell that it is 4wd just because rear wheels don't spin - the system is designed to prevent spinning!!

I've done Goolwa Beach many times (all the way to the Murray mouth) and never got bogged.

Tyres 17 inch - down to 26psi or maybe 24psi due to them being low profile Geolander ATs.

ESP off.

Front and rear bash plates (behave more like skid plates on sand).

Only ever use Auto!!

Lock is really only for up or down slippery/gravelly/muddy hills . . . auto is really very very good with all sorts of "smarts" for different conditions; it will also automatically "Lock" if needed!!
