    Discovery ABS issue

    Hi, If you do a search on the internet for the "Three Amigos" you'll get loads of info. The most common cause is simply a worn wheel bearing causing play that is picked up by the ABS sensor. Secondly a fault with the shuttle valve switch due to a bad electrical connection. This is easily fixed by re-wiring. Because the TD5 is NOT OBD2 compliant this is why the garage may be having trouble diagnosing the fault but can clear it. You need someone with a Nanocom or Hawkeye. Where abouts are you in the midlands? I'm North Shropshire and have Nanocom Evo. Regards, Griff

    2001 discovery 2 td5 auto button

    Hi Downsey, This, as stated, is to turn the CC on/off. You then use the buttons on the right side of the steering wheel to set it etc. Details should be in the handbook. Regards, Griff

    Try using the key to input your EKA. (Emergency Key Acess) Instructions in the handbook. Griff
  5. Did you swallow it?? They usually put a bittering agent in to disuade drinking it. Griff
  6. Hi, Took some pictures today whilst replacing my f/o/s window regulator. They show the clips holding the inner section of the trim on and then should just pull off. HTH, Griff

    Alternator location

    The front part of the unit is actually the brake vacum pump and can be removed so you only have to replace the alternator itself. An example is here https://www.lrdirect.com/ERR6999-Alternator-Assy/ HTH, Griff

    Hi Dave, As it's a hydraulic clutch there is no adjustment -unlike a cable operated one. Griff

    TD5 knocking and lots white smoke

    Might be worth just checking that the injector "tappet" back lash is ok. Griff

    Disco 2 chirpy blower motor fix

    Very clear post. Not unusual to get leaves etc inside too. I had a piece of the foam filter from the front scuttle in mine.

    TD5 knocking and lots white smoke

    Hi, It sounds "tappety" to me,so the first place I'd be inclined to look at is under the rocker cover to check everything is ok there with the cam and injectors. Hopefully someone with more knowledge will be along soon. Do let us know how you get on in case someone does a search on the same subject. Griff

    Electrical issues

    Hi, I don't have the 300TDi, but when unexpected things go wrong with the D2's, the first place we look is at water ingress into the wiring -especially the fuse boxes. HTH, Griff
  15. Hi Roger, Is there not any beam adjustment on the light units? Griff
