    The dashboard trailer light, green square with a picture of a trailer, does not energise. I understand that it is supposed to come one once per indicator activation without a trailer and every indicator flash with a trailer attached. ​The bulb is good. What causes this to activate? Is it controlled by the relay? How would I tell if I have the correct relay? It should be noted that the indicators do work as expected otherwise. This is on a 1989 110. Many thanks in advance.

    Snagger..........................It's off. I used 2 high tenstile bolts with 13mm heads and just turned them 1/2 a turn each time until the sprocket popped off. Thank you! I've taken a few pics about this entire job thus far and shall try to upload them when i see my son....(not a computer person myself, rubbish). Time for quick ham sandwich and cuppa, and then back to it. Next job..to take off the brake boost vacuum pump thingy on the engine. Then i'm pretty close to taking off the chest, (he say's quietly). Famous last words in the world of Landy's. Hope this doesn't hold any nasty surprises !!.

    Welcome to the forum. It's always interesting to hear the views of new people on threads that have been dormant for years ...especially when they are praising or endorsing this or that product.

    What is the weight of a 101, lighter than a disco or defender i would think. What box is it mounted to, gearing could be all wrong. Would be interested in some photo's of the conversion and 101.

    Dear Forumites The car is a Freelander 2l TD4. • When you pull away hard, only the rear wheels spin • When you jack one wheel up in the front, you can turn it freely while the gearbox is engaged • When you jack one wheel up in the rear, you cannot turn it freely while the gearbox is engaged • With one rear wheel jacked up, the jacked wheel spins and the car doesn't drive. • With one front wheel jacked up, the jacked wheel doesn't spin and the car doesn't drive. So a broken VCU is possible but cannot be tested before drive to the front wheels is restored. A mechanic here says a completely stripped CV joint would have the same symptoms, but I would expect it to make some grinding noise, at least, but there is absolute silence from the front drive. So I strongly suspect the IRD. Am I right? How am I going to be certain? Best regards Arthur

    Some methods used may not be recommended by other recognized official bodies, but are non-the-less tried and tested methods. If you feel that these methods are unsafe, then consult other official bodies for an alternative method.
