    The shape of the floor panels

    I have always fitted new ETL100430 td5 one piece mat to any 300tdi I’ve owned, they were £120 last time I bought one.

    Rear light loom

    The td5 / tdci has much larger holes in the chassis for the wiring looms to pass through than pre 98. td5 / tdci wiring loom exits from the right rail outer face not inner face as stated above.

    Respray advice - Enamel single stage

    Use Soudal Carbond instead of sikaflex - sikaflex is unpaintable.

    Which shock absorbers

    My procomps didn’t last six months before rusting and seals failed. Craddocks wanted nothing to do with them. I replaced them with £15 each 109” one ton front dampers and 88” HD rears and have been fine for years.

    Rear crossmember repair, best Option?

    That crossmember could be replaced properly as the rest of the chassis is good. By properly I mean just replacing the crossmember exactly as it was built without extensions which in my view are a bit of a bodge - it’s a bit more work but the bare crossmember is cheaper.

    It takes under ten minutes to swap the dash top!

    Snorkel / RAI

    It lost power at the top end - on a motorway incline it felt like it was being held back. It was a 300tdi with only a very rotation of the diaphragm / fuel pin but fitted with full width AlliSport intercooler and foam air filter.

    Snorkel / RAI

    My extortionately expensive genuine Land Rover snorkel noticeable affected the top end power of my old 300tdi, however I fitted the same model snorkel to my Puma and didn’t make any noticeable difference.

    A tale of woe: 300 tdi fuel injector pump

    Bleed hole has probably been blocked for years - it’s only when the pump is drained down of fuel that it becomes an issue.

    Which Timing Belt Kit?

    Revised bracket has two sliding bushes similar to an alternator mounting where it mounts to pump to prevent pump being overtightened onto a misaligned bracket. Also you need to make a small gasket to pack out the central mounting bolt of the timing case cover - kits sometimes come with this gasket included, sometimes they don’t. If gasket not fitted it distorts the cover when central bolt tightened.

    Which Timing Belt Kit?

    Fit revised injector bracket ERR6835 if not already fitted, they can be picked up second hand cheaply now.

    A tale of woe: 300 tdi fuel injector pump

    I’ve posted about this before but you can get an airlock in the pump if the tiny bleed hole is blocked in the return line banjo bolt at the top rear of the pump, which cause the exact symptoms you have - no fuel reaching the pump head / fuel solenoid. Try removing this banjo bolt from the return line fitting on the pump and turning the engine over, this will bleed air from the pump if the hole or integral filter s blocked and hopefully engine will start. Hole in banjo bolt can be cleaned out with a strand of wire.

    2-Speed wiper wiring diagram / switch pics

    I converted my 2a lightweight to twin speed with park using a series headlight switch, if any use? Didn’t require any cutting into loom either.

    Defender 300Tdi engine bling

    I had a LR genuine parts exchange 300tdi about ten years ago which had the worst paint job imaginable from the factory, it appeared to have had a bucket of grey hammerite dumped on it from above covering everything, head, inlet, block, timing case and sump, before the application of Genuine Parts decals and dataplate. It was all peeling off the alloy parts when it arrived, ten years on it has almost all fallen off!
