Well they got what they deserved.
Who in their right mind uses a wire cable as a snatch strap anyway ?

I agree Kev,
Typical case of not having a clue.
What was the Xy driver thinking that he could make it across the bog hole.
Panel beating 101.

Unbelievable. Never thought it would rip that whole panel off.

Re: Tie point vs Recovery point


I originally thought it was the rear chassis up to the rear axle that come off and wondered how it ripped as it did and left the spare wheel well intact.

Looking more carefully towards the end of the video I can see its This panel:

from service body manual:
]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

together with some of the higher vertical bits up towards the rear lights as well!!!

This panel isn't anything like as strong as a towbar that mounts into the sort of chassis the XTrail has.

Holy Moley - bet they sat and wondered what on earth to do next for the next few hours !!!

Re:


All I can say is that they're a bunch of idiots and they're lucky no-one was killed!

Who on earth yanks a stuck car (so deep) with such force without even attempting to dig-out the stuck tyres. I don't think even the towbar would have had a chance to withstand such brutal force.

P.S. Can someone translate what they're saying? It sounds like the camera man was yelling "Go harder!" or something like that.

Re:Rookie mistake


For those rookies amounts us, what would have been the better option after being bogged (who knows what they were doing for fun.. have seen 2m snorkels on Jeeps totally submerged).

?1Towbar recovery point.
?2. Proper snatch strap
?3 Recovery tracks behind wheels
?4. pray for drought LOL



Why were only the front wheels [sign in to see URL] the back ones truly imbedded and they couldn't move at all? They didn't look as deep as the front ones
