    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    LR have already jumped in that it's an old concept setup. I tend to believe them as it's unlikely that the random dude who posted the photo would have anything to do with the final production version. The LR PR guy got very angry with him on Twitter before his account got nuked 🙄 https://jalopnik.com/this-is-the-new-land-rover-defender-dash-before-youre-s-1832627241 It may have similarities, but Stop and Go pedals don't scream "finished product".
  2. As recently seen on the Grand Tour. I had to pause it as I thought I recognised that axle 😁

    TD5/TDCi clutch pedal box

    yes, I fitted one to my 300Tdi. The clutch switch is different on a Td5 to a Puma, so you'll have to swap it over (if included)

    Bonnet Catch

    Their tactic is to peddle whatever's cheapest to manufacture, so it may be better one year then worse the next. I would go Allmakes for circa £10, the Bearmach ones are half the price so will be rubbish. Although, genuine isn't much more. https://www.lrworkshop.com/parts/AGB710020

    Retro fitting ABS to defender, one wire to go!

    There seems to be a decent amount of information from Nanocom about how the ABS ECU works: https://www.nanocom-diagnostics.com/uploads/downloads/WABCO D TYPE (DEFENDER) ECU Guide.pdf

    Puma dash and bulkhead onto 2002 td5

    Just seen this video. They bent the gearstick and used traditional gauges.

    Retro fitting ABS to defender, one wire to go!

    Do you mean from the ABS ECU to the Main ECU? There are two wires shown, a Slate/Purple one and a Yellow/Pink one. The former is the same colour as another wire on the Main ECU that connects to the speedo, the latter is the same colour as the wire from the ABS ECU to the ABS Modulator. I could guess that the ABS ECU wants to know the real speed (so it can work out when the wheel speed is relative to actual speed for traction control purposes) and the Main ECU wants to know when the modulator has activated. But you shouldn't take that as advice.

    300tdi radiator

    The latest Wolf parts catalogue lists the 300Tdi radiator/intercooler assembly as the same part number the standard 2003-on version (PFI100041). There's no reference to PFI100042 - the only results being the retailers' own websites, so they may know something we don't.

    mpg for 300tdi 110csw

    Driving style makes the biggest difference. If you drive like you don't want to use the brakes, then you should see 30+

    Online buying Advice

    If you paid by PayPal and he hasn't used tracking then he hasn't got seller protection, so you're in a strong position to get a refund if you need it.

    The new Defender is now pointless

    I still won't buy one, or the new Defender, as won't most other luddites on here. Yet I would buy an EV right now if I didn't have a Defender. It was interesting to me that it's come at a time when LR are still in the business of selling diesels and the eventual 4 year wait for the Defender has meant genuine competitors have come in from left field.

    The new Defender is now pointless

    I'm clearly not the only one watching what's happening with electric vehicles 😉 The video below is what I watched. EV's have been advancing so much that they're close to a tipping point where it's win-win-win-win over ICE cars. This thing made me sit up and take note as it's essentially competing with the new Defender, and I thought "why would you buy the new Defender when there's this?". I know it's all on paper, but so is the new Defender. Reliability, build quality, etc all have to be proven, but we know LR could get these aspects wrong too. They're also launching in the same year. For a lifestyle vehicle, it has produced some intriguing specs that will probably match the new Defender, yet it's full electric and has all that extra space that lifestyle buyers want (and the flip down seat!) I watched this, not knowing it was coming and immediately thought of how out of touch LR seem to be. Couple that with all the recent jobs news....

    The new Defender is now pointless

    How about an "offroad-first" vehicle that: does 0-60 in 3 seconds can tow 5 tons has steep approach/departure angles has 1000mm wading depth has 360mm ground clearance does 400 miles range come as a pickup or station wagon available in 2020-2021 Does that interest anyone? (I will reveal a bit later)

    Copying and making a part

    Thanks to @Stellaghost i've been able to compare the two brackets, and there's differences in almost everything: position on the engine, height, position of the threaded holes, cradle angle, although the cradle curve is within a few mm of each other. I'm sending the bracket off to @vulcan bomber who's going to see what he can come up with 👍

    No contest...😁 It's amazing how the falling snow in Canada knows to miss your driveway.
