  1. Welcome to the forum. There are those around here that have P38 knowledge and I for one will be happy to help where I can.
  2. Does your RAC policy come with a key replacement? Mine does and have used it a couple of times without any hastle. Car has to be Taxed, MOT'd and insured in your name to qualify.
  3. It was helicoiled to take M12's which are now fitted and working fine. The helicoil work was done by a local retired Aeronautical engineer so I would think that he has done it right. I have helicoiled into aluminium before for exhaust manifolds without any problem so I am nore than confident that all will be well. Nice to have the car back on the road just need to get one wheel stud changed and then I can get it MOT'd and hopefully sold. Having said that I have four cars that I need to MOT before the end of the month so this is going to be one expensive month.
  4. Did you try my solution above?
  5. On most TD5;s the difflock was fitted on the gearbox and it was the selector that was missing.I beleive it was omitted because all TD5's had traction control which was deemed by LR to be better. However with both traction control and a difflock the Disco became a much better tool off road.
  6. Thanks for your help guys. That was one well stuck bolt. Welded on a bolt three times before we manager to remove it and even then we needed lots of heat on the cali[per. I think someone had cross threaded the bolt. Now will get it helicoiled and refitted.
  7. I have been working on the brakes of my L322 TDV8. When I removed the callper one bolt holding it to the car hub sheared while being removed. The calipers are Brembo cast aluminium so as above I now have a bolt stuck in. Fortunately there is a sizable portion sticking out above the caliper enough to allow me to grip with Mole Grips. What I need to know is can I use the tried and tested method of applying heat to the alloy and gently rocking the bolt back and forth until it releases or should I use another method on the caliper?
  8. Plan Insurance are the brokers, Eridge is the insurance company.
  9. I have my own Architectural Practice and have a part time traders policy which I use to help my brother who moves vehicles around the country and for me when I am buying and selling. All above board and have been with the company for 3 years and am about to renew in September. I had one bump last year that was settled without any issue. The cover allows me to work in my day job and in my play job. I am allowed to have 10 vehicles on the policy and can change them whenever I wish through an online portal. Last month I bought a Range Rover Sport that was vandalised and was collecting it i
  10. An electric car towing a caravan will not have a range issue! Just means that the holiday will not be that far from home, of if a touring holiday a fortnight around the M25
  11. Agree and being dyslexic means I always make lots of typos and am always correcting when I can.
  12. It was meant to sound snooty but with my tongue planted firmly in my cheek.
  13. I have a posh Range Rover so certainly don't want any dirt on them
  14. Interesting However I have replaced them with steel ones for two reasons the first being the galling and the second being the colour. I am getting my wheels powder coated gunmetal and the car is Black so silver wheel nuts would be just plain odd.
  15. The studs were undamaged fortunately.
