  1. The old seal didn't have any obvious damage but I put it back with some red gasket sealant and was unsuccessful. Saying that it was an old tube of sealant so maybe I should try a new tube. Seems to be leaking from the rubber D to the rear of the block.


  2. I've got a 1999 TD5 110 which I have finally found the source of the oil leak on!! It's not the FPR as first thought but turns out to be the cam cover seal which I suspect is part number ERR7094G. However I need some help! Do I buy the genuine seal @ £26 or do I get the remake at about £9? Plus does anyone know what torque the fixing bolts should be re-fitted at?

    Cheers....


  3. Hi, just looking for some help. My 99 plate 110 TD5 has developed a leak...no surprise to many, but she been a good girl to date! It seems to be coming from around the location of the fuel pressure regulator or at least in that location. It is then running down the block and dropping of the bottom of the housing. Many feeds suggest it is the FPR, however why is it a source of leaking oil? Is the solution to replace the gasket? And do I replace the o rings while I'm in there? Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Stuart


  4. Well i finally managed to get a colour match for my td5 110, after numerous people telling me it was Chawton white it has now been confirmed as Landrover Aspen White, but i cant find any reference to that on any colour charts. Is it there or have i just developed a new colour?.....needless to say i have had a batch made up and the colour is spot on so if anyone is looking for a colour match then i would be happy to pass on their details in south Durham area.


  5. well im going to start with changing the seals on the bulkhead vents as they dont seal very well in a couple of places, and also replace the screen bracket seals then seal the foam joint under the windscreen with a bead of silicone and go from there. If all else fails im going to buy a duck!


  6. ive checked the doors and have a aluminium upstand sealed into the floor to protect the ingress from the bottoms of the doors but thanks for the help it is all appreciated. I have concerns about the guttering under the windscreen and the seal along there. thankfull ive invested in a breathable cover which is on her tonight with the bulkhead vents open to see if she will dry out a bit, or if nothing else get rid of the damp smell....i just wonder if all of the snow in Durham recently hasnt helped and let water get above a seal level...happy days


  7. So I checked over the 110 tonight and found that under the rubber matting in the front footwells are soaken again. I havent had this is a while but its back. She sits on a slight incline with the front facing up the hill. Im wondering if the water is coming in from the gutter under the windscreen or maybe the bulkhead vents, but id be interested to see if anyone else has had this problem and resolved it...

    ps....before you tell me they all leak i already know......


  8. So i got my Ex Cumbria Police Defender about 18 months ago and now im going to have to tackle some bodywork, but wait for it here it comes......ah yes its not in the Chawton white as you would expect with a 1999 vehicle, i has been resprayed in something else. The chawton white is too creamy and mine is whiter if that makes sense.......so heres the question.....do the cops use a standard white or not? if not its sprayshop colour matching for me!


  9. Hi,

    just looking at the cross member on the rear of my 110 and thinking its about time it got a new coat of paint and a bit of rust treatment. Any guidance on a satin black paint to give excellent protection, or even ones to stay clear of.....

    Cheers


  10. Anyone else had a leak from the top joint on their power steeting pump. Ive got a T plate '99 td5 and noticed some dripping from underneath. Dried it all round then found the dripping again. Looks like the top of the pump has 4 bolts round the edge of a square panel and a central nut. The leak seems to be coming from the joint that runs round on the top of the unit......so i guess then my question is......what do i do to resolve this?
