Sadly a weak point on TDCI/PUMA Defenders is the coupler between the gearbox and the transfer box, historically this has always been a 1 piece item that sticks out the back of the gearbox and drives the transfer box but on the MT82 gearbox found on the TDCI/PUMA Defenders it is a removable flange on the rear of the gearbox with a splined input shaft which pushes into this flange.
This works, but eventually you may get knocking on pulling away and on slowing down which will eventually result in a lack of drive altogether.
The good news is that this is an easy fix and this kit provides all the parts you need to get you back on your wheels.
