  1. Once off the car (not a difficult job) they are also quite easy to dismantle and lubricate. Cheers Peter
  2. Percussive is a word you need to get used to with Land Rovers = hit it! Peter
  3. Percussive maintenance of the starter motor required. Easy job to replace. Peter
  4. Is there an air leak in the low pressure diesel side, so it is struggling to get fuel to the injector pump (filter air leak or blocked)? Is the diesel low pressure pumpeworking? Is the "stop solenoid" not opening properly? They would be my areas to investigate. Cheers Peter
  5. Depends how old. My 1990 Defender has a half-turn position on the ignition - past ignition lights on but before reaching start, where you hold it for as long as you think it needs to be heated for. cold morning 10-15s, summer, I don't bother. Peter
  6. Make sure you use the correct Loctite. Had you said "threadlocker" then, no problem whether you do or not. "Retainer" is a different issue! Although, saying that, I've still never applied threadlocker either and never had a problem! Cheers Peter
  7. I've never used loctite and never had an issue. Peter
  8. To clarify, air spring, not air-bag (as in internal safety feature?) Regards Peter
  9. Jut pull the plug off the back of the alternator and see if the current drops. Peter
  10. That's huge! Did you remove ALL the fuses at the same time? Cheers Peter
  11. I'd find a tame garage, get them to write on headed paper the engine size and number (with vehicle chassis and registration number) on a headed paper and send that to DVLA. Cheers Peter
  12. Hello, the voltage drop will be minimal. What you need to do is put the meter on Amps (or milli-amps), remove the battery positive lead and then put the meter between the battery positive and the battery positive lead (that is in series completing the circuit). That will tell you the current drain. Then remove each fuse one by one and see what circuit is causing the drain. Cheers Peter
  13. It's not a simple switch, there is some electronics involved. I fitted one, so search "puffernutter" if then helps. Cheers Peter
  14. I don't think either are particularly easy. Doesn't the 200TDi disco require a different exhaust? Cheers Peter
  15. Not sure which of the 4 messages I should respond to 🙂 When I have done this in the past , I test all cylinders and look for a significant variation. Cheers Peter
