482 cab removal

Post by PatH482 » Tue Mar 12, 2019 10:11 pm

Hi,
Is there much work involved in removing the cab from my 482? Not sure where it splits around the bulkhead area. Can anyone give me any help or tips?
Thanks

In Ireland you could possibly have a q cab or explorer cab perhaps if you posted which one it might help get some responses . That being said a shop manual is likely a very good idea for a big project like that

the Q cab will lift off in one go but the hand brake and pto clutch lever stay with the chassis dont forget the pto clutch foot pedal and diff lock remove the tops as it stays with the chassis too theres two types of mounting on the Q cabs depending on age some rear mounts are like the explorer cab type and the earlier are the same all around the off centre rubber bush type (metalastic).

Mine has the Q cab fitted.
Does the cab and mudguards lift off in one piece?
Is there much stripping involved around the steering wheel and bulkhead area?

hi a Q cab can be lifted off in one piece the only things needing removal are the pipes and control cables and unplug the wires hand brake / pto clutch stay behind and dont forget the pickup hitch cable you might end up taking the cab mounts off with it if the bolts are seized in the bushes those bushes werent cheap

Don't forget (on a QM Cab) to take off the hydraulic control knobs and also unscrew the bolt(s) which hold the (fibreglass) hydraulic control quadrant down to the lever mounting/pivot tube (immediately under the cab seat panel). Otherwise, when you try to lift the cab, the hyd quadrant is lifted with it (inside the cab) but it is still attached to the tractor chassis :o That's how they get broken!
