    Since the clutches are disengaged by applying pressurised oil, im wondering if you are just low on hyd oil.

    Thats what it sounds like to me too but I'm confused why it should just be the left side

    If you haven't already I'd try to adjust the steering clutch on that side. At the rear of the dozer (on my d20p6) there are removable plates with a 17mm adjustment bolt under it. It can be hard to move if not adjusted in a long time. Bring a breaker bar and wd40 just in case.
