  1. Hi Folks, 1996 Defender 110 300 Tdi Would be interested to know what tools folk use/are available to read the configuration of the 10AS unit and perhaps also change some settings. Many Thanks, Simon...
  2. Fat fingers on the keyboard. AMR4956
  3. Hi Folks, 1996 Defender 110 300 Tdi Alarm key fob no longer working. Have ordered a replacement. Ignition will not start (red flashing immobilser key warning on dash). Able to enter the 4 digit EKA and successfully start. So all good there. However, we have a ARM5965 fitted and thought that this would bypass the immobilser. Is there a fault with the ARM5965 bypass or is there something else needed to bypass the immobilser? Many Thanks, Simon...
  4. Hi, Another link to removing the pink relay and upgrading with new relays for the main/dip headlights. http://pellylandroverdefender.blogspot.com/p/headlights.html Simon...
  5. Not to add to your list, wondering about the state of the windscreen seal? 😉
  6. Hey There, Check out the notes on my blog with respect to 10AS programming. https://pellylandroverdefender.blogspot.com/p/autumn-2017.html The values in the 10AS unit also control how the interior lights operate when doors are opened too. Simon...
  7. Hi Folks, Unlikely to be a new topic. However, still getting my head around it, so some thoughts/direction would be useful. Got a Defender 110 CSW 1996 with the original steel wheels. Believe that these are 5.5 inch width. Running on them 750/R16 Michelin Latitude Cross Been trying to find winter tyres and/or all terrains which would fit on these rims. Most choice seems to be center on 235/85/R16. However, recommendation (and perhaps legally), is to not fit these onto the original steel wheels as they are too wide. Rather go modular or wolf wheels. So wondering if folk have managed to find/recommend winter tyres/all terrains which fit on the original 5.5 inch width steel rims? Or do most go for different wheel choice and/or just simply go with the 235/85/R16 on steels anyhow? Thanks, Simon...
  8. "one thing I NEVER do is assemble dry." - Yep. Generally use copper grease. Makes me wondering whether should be using galvanised bolts when doing replacements. Need to put in two new front seat belts and was considering new bolts for the brackets which mount the end of the belts to the floor pan. Simon...
  9. Hi Folks, Came across an article suggesting that stainless steel fittings can encourage catalytic corrosion. http://funrover.com/guides/8-jobs-you-should-be-doing-to-your-land-rover/ Not heard that before and wondering is that common knowledge/accurate? The article suggests using Duralac anti corrosive jointing compound or something similar. Again, not heard of this before. Have folk got experience of taking such precautions? Thanks, Simon...
  10. Hi There, 1997 Defender 110 300 Tdi CSW with roof bars running Michelin Latitude Cross 750R16C on steel wheels. Tend to accelerate really gently, never run over 2500rpm, also as above, like to drive as though we have no breaks. Boring! Generally get between 28 and 29mpg as per pump. Once got 32mpg but that was on a long motorway run with a following wind. Driving around the Lake District with 8 people and ruck sacks has a dent though, getting then around 22mpg Simon...
  11. "starter inhibit relay" - Good thought. Easy to achieve too....
  12. Useful to know. Have been considering something like this for the second row in my 1997 Defender 110 300 Tdi The original buckles only just protrude through to the seats once they have navigated their way through the dog guard and floor tray. As per OP, If anyone can recommend some for a 300Tdi, that'd be great.
  13. Think generally that this is pretty fair comment - no one wants to go looking to get themselves and/or others into problems. The intention of going over the pass was to get to the Wasdale YHA (a really stunning hostel if you've never been there before). We were based there for 4 days doing some hiking in the area. Anybody travelling to that part of the lakes appreciates that if you're heading from the North it's the quickest route over - although clearly not this time. What took me by surprise was how little traction there was on the road - the pass was not closed, not huge amounts of snow, the main problem being an iced up section. We did see a transit van come down before we started the pass and can now only assume that he must have turned back or got lucky coming up from the other side. Simon...
  14. "jeopardise control of the sphincter" - this for sure...
  15. Looking at Winter tyres, there seems to be choice stress. Currently sized using 750R16C on steel wheels. Can anyone recommend a winter tyre or where best to start looking? Simon...
