Re:


In this scenario, a winch beats everything, and so do mud tyres, saw plenty of this being proven the weekend just gone in the watagans. But if you don't have one, a tow bar recovery hitch with rated shackles and an appropriate snatch strap for the weight of the vehicle being recovered. I'd also attempt to dig out behind the tyres but it really just depends on what kind of mud you're in. You can also plant maxtrax-type recovery aids under the edge of the wheels in the direction of recovery, just take it easy when using TRED's or MAXTRAX as the more you spin the wheels, the more likely you are to wear down the tread lugs on them.

The 4wd system on the xtrail isn't infallible either. Sensors get blocked up with dust or mud and can sometimes hinder the use of 4wd when you need it most; often turning the car off and then on again will reset the system and you can switch on 4wd again. There is a trick to hard-disable the traction control/esp/abs for super boggy situations but it doesn't have a 100% success rate.

Re:


Newbie comment...at the point in the video where the driver gets in the exy and tries reversing out (front wheel spinning), why is the rear wheel not moving at all?

Have they left it in 2WD mode, or am I missing something?

Cheers,
Mark

Re: Tie point vs Recovery point


It is possible the other side rear wheel was spinning free and you couldn't see it from this side.
