It could be a busted LSD. Which wheel lights up in drive, left or right rear?

do a simple check to confirm the LSD, jack up one rear tyre(leaving the other tyre on the ground), ifyou can turn it by hand without much force it's not an lsd( handbrake off, chock front wheels -safety disclaimer) or the lsd is busted/worn out. according to the gregories manual it should take a minimum of 68nm of torque to make the LSD slip. if this test fails the only other method is to remove the cover ofthe diff and identify which you have but you would need to know what your looking at except to say theirs more bits in the centre of the LSD diff head
