  1. See if either of these are right. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Land-Rover-Defender-90-110-Decal-Label-Badge-AMR5718-Fuse-Box-Information/272102220659?hash=item3f5a8e6373:g:wZAAAOSwGotWlDMw https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Land-Rover-Defender-90-110-Decal-Label-Badge-AMR5861-Fuse-Box-Information/271950770056?hash=item3f51876f88:g:1hUAAOSw7R9b52BR
  2. The 720 number is the continuous maximum specified by Garret for their turbos. Nobody really knows what is the safe maximum. A lot of people run much higher and are not destroying the engines. 720 is probably a nice safe temperature to run fall of the time. What boost are you running?
  3. Yep. Never ever had an issue opening and closing doors while sitting on two wheels.
  4. How? It is a simple and completely isolated system. Switch to motor directly. There is no way for it to cross feed with anything.
  5. IMO, you are best to remove the whole thing with manifold and oil cooler lines. Then change the cartridge on the bench. I would also get new OEM oil cooler hoses and a quality (Lemforder) manifold gasket. You will need the turbo to manifold gasket as well. If in a hurry, buy studs and nuts for the manifol to turbo connection. You can leave the turbo exhaust outlet in place. Seized nuts and broken studs are common.

    Sure, but taking the box off of the car is a lot of work. These pullers will get them off in place.
  7. It is also in the workshop manual. It says 0.030 mm (0.012") maximum.
  8. You don't need M18 bar. It is not a lot of pressure. You need to be very careful not to spread too much. In fact, there is a very clearly specified maximum spread that is allowed to prevent the damage. You are only spreading enough to remove the side gear preload. Read this: https://www.randysworldwide.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Dana_Spicer_Housing_Spreader.pdf No more than 0.015" housing spread.
  9. Nope. You need the later style pedal box that came with the 300TDI.
  10. It is a serious bitch to install these person I'm not that keen on, horrid devices.
  11. Step one in these situations is to understand exactly how wiper wiring works and then use a meter to troubleshoot the offending part. It beats changing parts and hoping. Personally, I change my old trucks to the later style intermittent stalk. It is all plug and play with a loom from Autosparks.
  12. There are no relays....in this era for the wipers. Wiper relays were introduced with the "Defender" in the 91 model year, giving intermittent and wash with wipe functions. It is straight wires from the switch to the motor.
  13. I asked them directly and they said automatic only.
  14. No. It is not. Like I said, there are MANY vehicles with both manual and automatic options. Fuel consumption and emissions are the same as long as final gearing is the same. Don't drink the Kool-Aid. I work daily with German engineers. They run a good line. Don't fall for it.
  15. Oh BS. There are lots of cars made with autos and manuals and there is no difference in emissions. Complicated is the wrong choice for THIS vehicle.
  16. That is what I had hoped. 6 gear for on road and the other two off road only.
  17. Apparently you are right. I confirmed with them. Sad. It means the whole thing will be complicated and expensive, the opposite of what they should be trying to create. That is what happens when you involve German engineers. Somehow it is ingrained into their whole society.
  18. There is nothing to be gained with 24 spline genuine shafts. They are weaker than the 10 spline shafts. If you want to go stronger, you need aftermarket 24/23 spline shafts and suitable CV joints. What you have in there now is anyone's guess.
  19. No. It is 8 speed manual. They say industry leading 8 speed gearbox and then show someone shifting. The videos of them driving also show all manual gear changes.
  20. Sounds like a bad bush. It would not compress the inner diameter any appreciable amount. I've done many of these and never had an issue.
  21. You just need any buzzer. Positive to the lights, negative to any switched 12V. When you turn off the ignition, it will buzz if the lights are on.
  22. It will be much better, unlike this thing LR produced.
  23. Your memory is failing you. When they came out you could get the same engine and gearbox for the Range Rover and 90/110. It was a RR with a heavier frame, stronger axles and a simple Land Rover body.
  24. Keep in mind that this is MSRP. That does not include PDI,. delivery and taxes.
  25. Now there is a completely rubbish statement.
