  1. Hello, I am trying to get the part for a bolt that goes through earth cable into chassis, it's the battery negative to gear box part PRC6785. The bolt is about 10.5cm. Can't find what it is any help appriciated. Sean
  2. I guess the whizzing about has taken it's toll. This only has 55k on it lol. An ex military one, so not known history.
  3. Hello, Yes, they charged me for the bolt to remove a stuck sump plug. Which to be fair a business need to do. Again, I'm fine with paying the costs, as long as it's reasonable. I would expect the fluid, although didn't change it that long a go! Just better to get it all soted while it's off, spigot, release bearing. Did you go for a HD release bearing or the standard one? Yes, it is one of the reasons why I don't want to do it, as it's a weekend job, in this weather minus 5, and it's a hard work one.
  4. Hello, Thak you for the replies. When you say a day, how many hours would it take a garage, as the one quote I've had seems high. Yes it's to replace the above while it is all off. So may explain the extra costs as its OEM Valeo, which I am fine with, as long as that's reasonable. Have been quoted £1,160. That's why I am looking thinking hang on that seems high, I've not done one myself and so don't know how long it should take a garage.
  5. Hello, On a Defender TD5 2003, R380 gearbox. How much would you expect or have paid for a new; clutch, dual mass fly wheel, slave cylinder, spigot, and release bearing? How long does it take, I've read a person on their own a weekend or 12 hours. But for a decent Land Rover garage to do the work? Thanks Sean
  6. I looked at that, and it seems to be one piece of glass, and a composite on either side. This sadly would not work, as it's not two sheets of glass put together
  7. Hello all, I'm looking for a source for the nut and bolts for the defender TD5 2003 to rebuild the dash. The dog got the cardboard withthe screws in and fubared that up. Now I need to put it back together. Part list / where it all goes is what I'm after. Thanks, Sean
  8. Well, the sealey kit is not ideal as the plug has a torx screw connection and not the 13mm bolt on top. I will see if I can find another kit with the bolt type on top, and if this one even fits!
  9. Perfect, I'll try the kit, and see how I get on. Will fit it, and then drain it all out again, to ensure any fragments / swarf are washed out by the oil. Given aluminium is not magnetic. Worst case is to get a new sump 😖.
  10. It's the oil sump drain plug thread, and not a bolt secureing the pan to the engine block. Any brands for a new pan then, or would a second hand one of fleabay be ok?
  11. Hello, I've had a very tight Defender TD5 2003 oil sump bolt removed by a garage, as it was wedged in. Tried all sorts, and they had to weld bolts on to get it off. Up shot is that it's leaking, I've taken it back and they have said bring it back, but it's time and fuel bringing it back over. I was looking to get an oversized oil sump bolt to replace it with. Helicoil I've heard mix things, and then when I come to change the oil next time I don't want to faffe about. I've read that the bolt is a M16, 16.5mm 1.5m thread, would the following Sealey set be the right thing to fix it with? Sealey VS617 Oil Drain Plug Thread Repair Set - M17
  12. Hi Tyler, Thank you for the reply. I've managed to break one of the bullet proof glass windows, I know meant to be very strong, erm.... yeah. I found a thin metal chissel worked well, almost had it of and a bolt head fell down in the gap and was cracked against the screen. I need to look at the front windscreen next, see how I can get that out. I'm almost thinking of using the soldering iron to melt the plastic out, as it may be quicker. I'm not a fan of Facebook, and hardly ever use it, in fact getting all my contacts other details to delete it. Do you know of the left hand window part number? I'd like to get it replaced like for like. I know, should have come to the show, and took one of them, can't till it's MOT is sorted, and the windows need to be done for that. Thanks, Sean
  13. Hello, That would be great. Any advice would be great. Regards, Sean
  14. Hi supaimpy, Thanks for the reply. Do you know how to get the whole glass unit out, as it's separated ? I've removed all the bolts I can, and it looks like they are glued in as well with some type of compound. I don't want to break it, but I need to clean it for the MOT. Any other ideas or suggestions, e.g. heat gun to melt the glue / sealant? Sean
