  1. Could be a drive spline stripped, the bolt on covers on the end of the axle. Jack each corner with it in gear, and diff locked, and if you can spin the wheel with some associated noise, the it's prob just the cover that's stripped. also check the diff lock lever mech isn't seized , and it's not "between" locked / unlocked

    VERA

    no wont be anything to do which speech delivery, when filming the driver / passenger in conversation mode, vehicles are on a 'very low' loader vehicle, so the view out of the side windows isn't 3 ft higher than normal, so not really driving. Its a pukker 90, I checked a couple of years ago, mot/ tax etc owner must hire it out. Just found this on the Adrian Flux web blog Brenda Blethyn stars as Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope in this slow-burning TV crime drama set in rugged Northumberland. What else would she choose but a battered old Landie, an off-roader built for purpose? The model she drives is automatic because she doesn’t have a manual licence, but she pretends to change gear for filming. She also does her own stunts because the show’s stunt driver is a man with a ginger beard.

    If anyone is watching Vera , on tv has anyone else noticed that the 'lived in' 300 tdi 90 she drives, actually has an auto box. Noticed a glimpse of the shifter whilst they were talking in the cab. Looked a proper jobby.
  4. Bit late, but had that wet weepage on mine, wasn't coolant, t'was a very fine misting of oil from a leaking exhaust / inlet gasket. I used to rinse it off with a brush and white spirit, and a hose, and it would gradually re appear in about 6 months. Had headgasket changed,as it was leaking at the back, along with new inlet and exhaust gaskets, and its been fine for over a year.
  5. First one was pinched after 5 years of ownership, this one I've had for 14 years. I have have various 'measures' in place, but if they want it !! . I look every time I use the loo, to check it's still there . BUT , I do feel the time has come to part with it, I have galv capping to fit, plus other little jobs, but I'm putting them off, because I don't want to spend time fettling, only for it to dissappear . I think selling it would be on my terms, not just finding a space on the drive one morning. But my problem is what to replace it with. It's a 110 HT, and I would like something of equal volume, with ability to fit a proper roof rack, with side windows and under 2.0m high ( without roof rack), and some rear seats, and the ability to fit bikes in the back, upright, without removing any wheels, for around 10-12k that's euro 6. Not interested in 4x4, never used Wallace off road anyway. The ONLY thing that fits the bill , is a s/h ( prob 2 years old 25k) Nissan NV 200 combi. Half of me wants Wallace to be pinched, so I can move on, without the sadness of selling it. Ho hum.
  6. oh, and don't forget to fit it, so the little indicator arrow on the blue self cancelling ring, is pointing to the nearside.
  7. Mine was doing this a month back. I decided to fit new Lucas switch, as old one had done 180k, and was very floppy and wobbly. Also when on main beam, on a bumpy road, it would move, so that both main and dipped came on. Basically it was worn out, bit of a revelation fitting a new one, solid, and precise, and a positive click.
  8. On that linked page, What's the difference between the pr2 TRW @ £21.78 from allmakes and the TRW from bearmach for £42 ?
  9. Run a temp live feed to headlight terminal to check it does work. Had this on mine, turned out it was a break in the wire, in the loom, somewhere behind the heater box. Cut and spliced a new length in, and been ok now for 9 years.
  10. Can't you put into first , depress the clutch, with brakes on, and turn the starter key, that normally frees a stuck clutch.
  11. Wasn't there a thing, where the ( I'm trying to guess/ remember here ) cam shells? used to rotate and block an oilway?
  12. After cleaning off , Smear with Vaseline. Years ago I had a prang in my old classic Fiat, front wing was a bit crumpled. Was winter, so I beat it out to shape again ( ish ) and sanded it all back to metal ready to apply filler, but weather turned, so I smeared bare metal ( 1/6 of the wing) with Vaseline, and it was a pretty horrible winter, come June the following year, Wing was still shiny under a thick layer of sticky muck, washed off with thinners and finished it off.
  13. Why on earth would someone put 305's on a Defender, I expect they come with a free X5 sticker for the back door. If you level a 110 when empty, as soon as you put any weight in the back, it is no longer level. My old ex mil 110 had std rear springs, and had HD + 1" up front ( for an intended winch, but truck was stolen ), and it sat level.
