Re: T-jet on fiat panda 4x4

Solenoid will have an electrical plug/wires? The viscous coupling is on the rear diff unit and is very large in the photos I have seen of it. Can you post a picture?

Re: T-jet on fiat panda 4x4

The coupling is only done at the rear differential pinion, so you don't need to think about the gearbox end. You appear to have the later of the two main types of rear differential. I think you have an electro-pneumatic coupling, looking at the below diagram taken from ePer (5 is the electro-pneumatic valve).



I am surprised there aren't others on here who own these vehicles which can help or give you history of the various types. I am only making assumptions based on a little research and ePer.

Re: T-jet on fiat panda 4x4

I am so surprised too about the whole (non) feedback...
And really thankfull that you're trying to help..

The pneumatic valve has 2 REALLY thin wires (0,50 or 0,75) and I don't think it is controlled by electric current. It seems as a sensor.

I removed the valve and it has something like a ball inside.
When I had it gauged, on the top point it was 8.8kOhm and on the opposite was Open circuit (MOhm). I think it is a sensor for... Something! :-P Maybe fluid pressure or level.

So if (as I too think it is) an electroydraulic model, which way may I control the coupling of the rear diff?

Re: T-jet on fiat panda 4x4

Hi, MERRY CHRISTMASS to ALL!

So, any updates on what this electropneymatic valve does? Is it a sensor or it "locks" rear diff?
