  1. With the EDC system there's no mechanical link (cable) between the accelerator pedal and the fuel injector pump, hence the term 'drive-by-wire'.
  2. Speedo has dual speed markings, so not an issue in the UK at MOT time, radio frequency is wrong for U.K. so just replace the head unit to one with UK spec, I understand if it's a Tdi the exhaust pipe at the manifold end is different to the UK system, something with emissions in Japan, if and when it due for replacement just fit the UK system. Finally the Japanese security system isn't as comprehensive as the uk system either the alarm or immobiliser part of the system is missing. As "for parts of the loom, etc" ??
  3. Do you have the throttle cable if no you have EDC, no need to go under the dash removing the kick panel.
  4. The paper catalogue is much better it. As more info in the front half dozen pages before the parts bit, also I find it quicker to search through.
  5. Not the 1995MY but a1996MY built in 1995 then yes, as alway there's two model years per year. As an example when I purchased my D1 alongside it was the 1998MY D1 both he same price, but there was a deal to be done with the outgoing model, so for me, that was £5000 off, or to be exact a load of extras and two years free servicing.
  6. The 1996MY D1 was in the showrooms in June1995, hence the vehicle being built in 1995 the VIN is MA. Just to add as I was looking to purchase a disco back then, there was few other important changes made to the 1996MY, which continued through 1997 until changes were made again when the 1998MY D1 was introduced.
  7. No EDC fitted to 1995MY tdi auto. EDC was introduced and fitted to 1996MY tdi auto model's onwards. So will only comment on vehicle with date as stated.
  8. Fuse 3 looks after the supply to: fuel cut shut-off solenoid, EGR control solenoid, EGR valve control module and the glow plug timer relay. So not that bad with the EGR being the primary suspect.

  10. Ok, check the fluid level in the approved way (cold, selector P to 1 etc) and see what is what. Some times in some light its difficult to see the fluid level on the dip stick especially if it new. If there's no sign then add an additional .25 litre wait 1/2 hour and check again in the approved way. Can't think of any other way.

  12. Hi to u Monkeyfeet, I've never tried, and it's never crossed my mind to have a look in the similar way we do to check the engine oil level. I've always done what's stated in the handbook book and move the selector etc. My Honda Accord auto is checked in the way we do for the engine oil and the engine/fluid must be hot.
  13. Correct ATF does expand, hence on some auto dip sticks there's two levels marked i.e., cold, hot, but for the D1 there's only one marked area , so fluid level should be somewhere in between the two 'pips' on the dip stick, preferably close to the top 'pip' with the level taking with the gearbox and fluid cold, as u say, with the engine running selecting slowly the positions from P to 1 and back into P then go and look at the dipstick with the engine still running, takes two or three minutes, simples.
  14. About AUD$3000 is £1775 in the UK today, but then there's the additional shipping cost back to the UK to take into account, which won't be cheap, plus cost of getting to Australia in the first place and not every Brit will want to holiday in Australia... so an expensive D 1 it seems. No all D1s in the UK suffer from corrosion, some have had a cherished life, I know of one.
