    Best way to seal up these door corners?

    Have a look at this vid:

    Leaking Fluids Mystery

    Just noticed there was a video attached - weird stuff! Does it only drip when the engine is running or has recently been running? I'm thinking it might be a freon leak.

    Dash centre console panel pre Td5

    Here's mine, Western. Ignore the flecks of mud from when the dogs shake in the back! I bought it a few years ago, was fairly straight forward to fit (had to trim a piece out the bottom dash rail iirc) and has lasted well ever since. I had intended to fit some proper rocker switches for ancillary bits and pieces but you can see how far i got with that exercise...

    Flip up screen stereo/cd

    Have you got any pics of this? Very intrigued by the prospect of installing an Android tablet in the dash as it'll undoubtedly be cheaper and more functional than a normal double-din unit. How do you get it to play through the speakers?
  5. Cheers Mav, i might very well take you up on that offer!

    110 front axle springs - which one where?

    I'm going to throw a spanner in the works here and say the long ones are on the driver's side (right hand side). Could be a UK/Canada difference though? Also, i could be totally wrong!
  7. I didn't even know this was possible! I've got a new thermostat in now and so far, so good. Still need to have a good check of the earths and i also have a HEAP of oil in my ECU block connector. Starting to think i should've bought a 300tdi to stay away from some of these electrical gremlins but hind sight is an exact science etc etc...
  8. So, things are looking better on the heating side of things. I changed the thermostat, heater matrix and 2 cooling hoses and she seems to be running better. It's been warmer up with us recently though so that might be making a difference. On a related note, i've spotted the attached pic on my travels. How do you even go about fixing that? Could this be causing some issues with all my brake warning lights and the temp gauge as well?

    2.5 TD5 or 2.4 Tdi?

    I have a 90 TD5 and drive a 2012 2.4 110 for work. The TD5 is slower and colder but i would have it over the 2.4 any day of the week. The leg room in the 2.4 is terrible and the transit engine doesn't sound like a defender to me. I don't think parts are ever going to be an issue for either vehicle so no real differentiators there. One thing i would say is I wouldn't spend £15k on a TD5 even if it was well sorted with low miles. Rust will creep into the chassis and bulkhead soon enough and you'll see some depreciation. I'd spend tops £10k and the rest on regular maintenance. That's just my opinion though!

    Will this fit?

    Ah ok. Hopefully it'll be plug and play on my TD5 but time will tell! Cheers

    Will this fit?

    Cheers western. Looking at that thread you mentioned having to buy a new 3 pin econoseal plug. Did the new motor not match up with the existing wiring connections?

    Will this fit?

    Sorry guys, not a very interesting post here but i need a new rear wiper motor for my 2000 TD5 90 commercial, will this one fit? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LAND-ROVER-DISCOVERY-2-TD5-V8-REAR-WIPER-MOTOR-DLB101640/273585801703?epid=25022245782&hash=item3fb2fc09e7:g:q2YAAOSwctJcACDU:rk:3:pf:1&frcectupt=true New ones online seem to cost a packet!
  13. Thanks guys, i'll have a crawl around over the weekend and do some tidying up. Re the slow heating, is there any merit in either removing the viscous fan or installing an electric fan set? A rad muff at £30 is the cheaper option but i'd be worried my intercooler isn't getting the air flow it needs.

    Wolf HD rims - confused

    Is this what you're after? https://www.i-bidder.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/wca/catalogue-id-witham1-10000/lot-4e69bccf-c3d2-4c81-ab44-a9dd00f967d0
  15. Will give it a bash and see if it helps. Are there any other earth points i should be looking at apart from the main battery to chassis strap?
