  1. The good news is that the blower motors are fine. I just needed to change the HEVAC controller so I will now explore the dash in place option for replacement of the matrix
  2. I think I am going to need it 🙄
  3. Filip I have seen a video on Utube about removing the matrix without removing the dash however we are in lockdown and I have plenty of time to play with it so will take my time and strip the dash out. I also need to replace the blower fans and all the wood trim I am replacing with Piano black that I recently aquired so should get easier access,.
  4. The heater matrix is goosed. I rigged up a bicycle pump and filled it with water and pressurised it a little and it wouldn't hold pressure very long. So out comes the dashboard.
  5. Good idea Steve. Basically fit the new o rings connect it up and blow air into it while one pipe is blocked off. Works for me will try that tomorrow
  6. I had the usual wet carpet on the drivers side on my P38 so obviously I though the O rings were gone. Stripped the car down and got the pipe disconnected very easily to find that the o rings appear to be fine. Great I though put it back together with new rings and all will be good. Here's my dilemma. Do I assume that the o rings were leaking as the screw holding them in came out very easily and may not have been tight enough to hold the pipe in give than the car was not in use for 3 years or do I assume that the heater matrix is knackered and set about replacing that to be sure. I don't really want to have to do the job twice and am not sure at all if the screw holding the o rings in was tight enough because of how easily it came out. I never has a problem with the heater in the two years that I used it regularly. But was put off the road because I cooked the engine. So may have been leaking and I didn't notice. Again I cooked the engine because I hadn't topped up the cooling system.
  7. Elbekko I agree with you so perhaps someone has changed the rocker covers at some point for earlier/classic RR ones.
  8. As Griff has said the TD5 doesn't like to cook. I have fitted an auxiliary temperature guage to mine and that tells me exactly the condition of the cooling system and has saves my latest engine from cooking on more than one occasion. I found my head gone and the gauge never went over midway. I don't think it will be good news.
  9. my brother is in the motor trade and he told me a story of him having 14 vehicles on private land being clampped by DVLA. Some were his and some where other traders. Either way the authorities were trying to hold them to ransom and wouldn't accept that they were on private land. In the end my brother got tired of the argument and lack of progress so he cut the clamps off. They couldn't trace the owner of the vehicles as they were not registered to anyone and my brother got the scrap value for the clamps.
  10. Thanks BM my thinking was that it covers all V8's not just Discos and there are many on here that are doing mods using injected V8's
  11. Giorgier Welcome By barrels do you mean cylinders? basically the container the pistons go up and down in? If the spark plugs plugs are getting black that would imply and over fueling issue and as it is a 2003 it will be fuel injected. perhaps a kind moderator would move this thread to the international board as this is a V8 issue more of the guys will see it. Unfortunately I don't know how the fuel mixture is determined but the first thing I would look at is the air filter, is it clean or the air flow metre is it working properly and is the air flow clear?
  12. Don't know sorry. i know on mine I don't have a remote and have disconnected and reconnected the battery multiple times without the immobiliser activating. I don't think when I have had the message flash up in the past the key has disarmed it and it has a;lways been disarmed by the remote.
  13. No you need to use the blipper
  14. If the BECM is not picking the signal up from the receiver how can it disarm the immobiliser?
  15. The back wheels are too close together so my guess it is just an overlap of the pictures creating the image or 6 wheeled Range Rover
