  1. As said, they're TE Connectivity/AMP (not Amphenol - they're a different company) 070 Multilock connectors. The terminals don't look that bad, - that's just a bit of mild corrosion caused by dampness. A soak in vinegar will remove that corrosion, followed by a good rinse in de-ionised water, and a thorough drying-out. Use Silicon contact grease on the terminals to keep the corrosion at bay. .
  2. You need a Sumitomo HW090 2-way female connector to mate with the male connector in your pictures. I can supply these, complete with terminals and wire seals. .
  3. The Puma heated seat switch is wired as follows - Pin 1 - live in Pin 2 - live from dash illumination Pin 3 - not used Pin 4 - live out to relay Pin 5 - to earth .
  4. The D2 spotlight switch is a non-latching (momentary) earth-switching switch, intended to switch the D2's spotlight electronic control unit. As such, it's wired as follows - Pin 1 - from ECU Pin 2 - from dash illumination Pin 3 - not used Pin 4 - to earth Pin 5 - live from spotlights (to illuminate the switch's tell-tale LED) To achieve what you want, you will need to use a latching live-switching switch, such as the Defender Puma heated seat switch, and swap the switch front for the D2 spotlight switch front. .
  5. The connector keyways on that switch, tell me that it's a rear electric window switch for a Discovery-2 and a Freelander-1 It uses a Purple 6-way connector. I have these. .
  6. I do ship to Belgium, by Royal Mail Airmail, which isn't too expensive. The headers are £11.95 each, supplied with 20 x terminals. Additional terminals are £0.28 each. I only have a few of the grey and blue headers, but larger stocks of the other four colours (green, orange, yellow, black) .
  7. The smaller pinned connectors are Econoseal III 070 series - available everywhere. The larger pinned connector is an Econoseal III 250 series connector. Both male and female 250 series 4-way connector kits are available from AutoClick. Male connector kit - https://www.auto-click.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=785 Female connector kit - https://www.auto-click.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=786 .
  8. It's a Yazaki YESC 2.8 Sealed System 2-Way Connector - I'm sure that the female connector is used on D3/D4/RR Sport - but I don't have a LR part number for it. The male connector is used for the Puma/Tdci Defender heater blower, and is LR part number YPC900890 - Unfortunately, this for the connector housing only, terminals and seals are not included. Land Rover sell the terminals and seals pre-crimped to short lengths of 2.5mm² cable, part number 41841118 (418-411-18) - These cost around £30.00 for a pack of 10 There's so
  9. I separated the interior lights and instrument back-lights from the single on-off-on switch by my right knee, into 2 x separate switches. The interior lights are now on a switch on the centre panel on the dash, and the instrument back-lights are now on their own switch in this position under the clocks. .
  10. The Bearmach switches that MUD sell, are based on the Land Rover switch YUG000540LNF This switch switches a relay's coil to earth - they don't make this too clear. They nicked my diagram for YUG000540LNF for their instructions - here's one I've modified to be specific for rear work lamps that work how you want them to - The wire colours shown for - Dash illumination (RO), Reversing lights (GN), Permanent live (PN), and Earth (B) are as found on the vehicle. .
  11. Don't connect the WG wire to anything. It's an ignition switched live used by the TD5'S Denso alternator. It's not required on the P38 alternator.
  12. The Defender 300Tdi under-bonnet fuse box doesn't compare to the TD5 underseat fuse box, as you've discovered. The TD5 underseat fuse box is based on the engine compartment fuse box used in early Freelander-1, and 300Tdi Discovery-1, which are based on the engine compartment fuse boxes fitted to Rover 200, Rover 400, MGF and MG TF cars. They all have the same Sumitomo connections, but I don't know if they all have the same functionality. The Freelander-1 and MGF use the same fuse box - YPP100310L in the Freelander, and YPP100310 in the MGF - the MGF version is cheaper.
  13. I've always used 'Galvafroid' paint to cover the cut surface on Galvanised metalwork, such as conduit, trunking, tray work, etc...
  14. YWY000080 was also fitted to Rover 75 / MG ZT cars.
