  1. Update. Have tested the supply to the park switch. All good there. Looking more closely at the wipers, there is a fair amount of play. The wipers can be rotated somewhat on the splined drums. Will see if can tighten up later. Simon...
  2. Hi Folks, Having issue with the parking position of the front wipers. They come to rest around anywhere between 10-30 degress from the horizontal. Just changed the parking switch in the hope that it would alleviate the problem. However, issue still persists. Looking for suggestions on how to diagnose further. Many thanks, Simon...

  3. Hi Folks, Seen references in previous blog posts to some 2nd row seat extensions that were made by Trakkers. However, cannot see a current website reference to them. Looking at options for gaining some extra leg room in the 2nd row. Currently have 3 individual high back seats from Exmoor trim. Have also seen Exmoor do "Premium" seats quoting extra leg room. Can anybody comment on how much leg room is actually achieved? Many Thanks, Simon... Defender 110 CSW 300Tdi 1997
  4. Happy New Year. Looking forward to bundles of projects/adventures - assuming can get past “accounting”. Have fun...
  5. Yeah. Have seen that too sometime back. Making an assumption hear, however, have you considered putting some relays in place for the headlights? https://pellylandroverdefender.blogspot.com/p/headlights.html
  6. Thanks for all the information and image - really helps. Convinced that FRC7577 are way too long.
  7. Hi Folks, Been looking into the topic of wheel studs for use with Wolf wheels, in particular stud lengths. (Defender 110 CSW 1996 300 Tdi) Not a new topic and appreciate large numbers of folk use standard length studs with no reported issues. Not wanting to stir that debate - well maybe a little. However, came across these today - Zeus manufactured studs coming in at 56mm. Liking the look of the Zeus stubs as the FRC7577 extended studs look as though they will be way too long. http://www.zeus.uk.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=11x Has anybody had any experience of using them? Simon...
  8. By the way, with the guard mesh in place, there is no way that the rear benches would fold up as the guard mesh projects backwards into the rear space. Still mulling over what to do with the rear load area. Liking the idea of boarding out in some way with a shelf that still allows to be easily removed and the benches utilised. Simon...
  9. Some images which may help for the rear mounting. First image - note that there is a plate with 2 welded nuts which fits to the underside of the body. A helping hand is useful. Second image - perhaps not obvious. The rear of the bench frames are secured with a screw/washer. Long screwdriver useful. The dog guard mesh was part number STC7555G Simon...
  10. Will get some photos of back section mounting later today. Simon...
  11. Hi There, Some notes on headlights including dim dip bypass relay. https://pellylandroverdefender.blogspot.com/p/headlights.html Simon...
  12. Some images which maybe helpful. Couple of things to note: 1. There is a removable plate on the underside which houses the fix nuts. 2. Our 110 is fitted with a "dog" guard hence another bracket topside with the thumb bolt on the top holding the guard - we do not own a dog. Just useful to stop stuff flying forward. In any case, as fitted, not able to fold the bench seats up. Would be interested to know how folk have theirs fitted to allow that. Suspect foldable in the sense you can do this via a spanner! LR workship link and image attached which may help too. https://www.lrworkshop.com/diagrams/land-rover-defender-seats/seating/rear-inward-facing_53667 Let me know if you need further images. Simon...
