  1. As you have the heat shield off, the easiest thing to do is whip off the spring clip from the actuator rod and see if the wastegate is free to move, rather than trying to force the actuator with a pair of pliers.
  2. I have had this in my Ford van with the tdci engine, if the oil is overdue for a change. After filling with new oil it goes black very quickly. How many miles since your last oil change? You could change the oil again as l did, and it will then look clean for a bit longer. But l don't think it will make much difference to the engine.
  3. This looks good at under £11,000. Again, always check that it's genuine when on Ebay. But it's a dealer so you could call them.
  4. Have you looked at TD5? What about this for £11,500? If genuine (don't pay a deposit online or over the phone) it looks like a good deal. TD5's being newer are easier to find in good condition.
  5. I had the same misfire with our 2004 TD5 Defender. One cylinder clearly not firing. There was no oil at the ECU red plug but l changed the injector harness anyway, and it cured the misfire. That was about five months ago and the fault has not recurred. Worth a try, the injector harness is under £30 and is easy to change. And if it does not cure the fault, at least you will know what it isn't.
  6. That's a good result. l was going to suggest you got it checked by a Land Rover Specialist and then get them to do a report.
  7. Well, you paid it so l am guessing somebody else will. Not sure what the going rate is for a restoration project these days.
  8. Look at this on eBay These are what you need, l have them on my 110. They are great because they sit lower than the sill, so are easy to use. l am sure they also do a version for the 90.
  9. The three wire connector is the same as mine. The three speeds will be no resistors, one resistor, and both resistors. So you only need three wires...a common feed, resistor A, and resistor B (which gives A+B)
  10. Most of the sound comes from your front speakers, the rears provide fill in and generally improve the overall effect. Your best bet would be to fit a couple of the LR rear speaker pods that fit in the lower corners at the back. These will take a 5 1/2" two way speaker and will be as good as you need.
  11. Clearly nothing to worry about then! I'll just keep driving it.
  12. Anybody? I did look online and in the forum but found nothing definitive.
  13. If l take the oil filler cap off my 2005 TD5 after a run, there's a fair bit of white smoke comes out. ls this something to worry about?
  14. Yes l fitted one to our 2003 TD5 90 and also our 2005 TD5 110. It makes the clutch noticeably lighter, and easier to drive in traffic.
