  1. The problem with what there seem to be trying to produce is that the only market share they are going to win is what they lost with the Disco 5. So, at best, they are back to where they were in 2016. This vehicle is not going to win over any Landcruiser, Patrol or Wrangler buyers. I doubt it will sway many that are planning to purchase similar priced SUVs (BMW, Audi, Volvo, MB). It is really unclear to me as to what market they are expecting to win over.
  2. Yes. They were never "meant" to have vented discs. Adding it is something people do, but it was never designed to work with them on purpose.
  3. No rush. It would be nice one day to figure this out. There must be some variable that is not obvious.
  4. Yes. This has been discussed before. Vented calipers on early hubs can hit each other. some people say they don't have the issue. Nobody seems to have figured out why. Western, can you look at yours and see how much clearance exists? Maybe take a picture.
  5. Here is a new link to a parts page and the part numbers. But....I don't believe that LR sells any of the resistors and harnesses anymore. I "assume" you would be UTP1904. I'm 90% sure it is discontinued. http://new.lrcat.com/#!/1228/12822/13493/1050/13558 UTP1281 - HARNESS BLOWER-HEATER [ - (V)LA939975 ] UTP1904 - HARNESS BLOWER-HEATER [ (V)MA939976 - (V)WA159806 ] UTP1282 - HARNESS BLOWER-HEATER [ - (V)WA159806 ] JGK100170 - HARNESS BLOWER-HEATER 12V [ (V)XA159807 - (V)2A633474 ] JGK100160 - HARNESS BLOWER-HEATER 12V [ (V)XA159807 - (V)2A633474 ]
  6. If looking at comparison numbers, the stock heater is around 3 kW. One important item to deal with is the stock vent openings. They are too small for the stock heater. You need to plan to make them larger if you are planning a larger heater.

    Import Help

    Contact Doug Crowther and let him handle the import. He has imported a thousand Defenders. http://www.dividingcreekimports.com/ As above, if it has a 19J, you will need to get an 11J back in there. Or just buy a different Defender. You can import any original 200TDI and some early 300TDIs.
  8. You can send it to VDO and they will set the odometer.
  9. Okay. I didn't understand your original issue then. The olive must be deformed to seal. That is how it works.
  10. The problem is you will have crushed the olive already. Olives are a single use item.
  11. You need the second page. Where exactly did you find that diagram?
  12. The VDO tubing kit is part number 150-851. Cheap and not hard to find.
  13. It is probably supposed to be 1/4" tube and not 6 mm.
  14. I pressure bleed every car. 20 psi. Never had an issue. Really the easiest way to do brakes and clutches.
  15. You are missing the point. They should be creating a vehicle that is better off road than the previous model AND better off road than any other vehicle being sold for road use today. It should be a world killer. They should be setting a new benchmark that other would need to catch up to. While still being acceptable to drive on road by today's standards. They are not doing that.
  16. They have long arm independent suspension. Even then it is not as good. The serious off roaders tried it and all went back to live axles.
  17. Except, independent suspension with short arms is worse than live axles off road. This is just a plain simple fact. If you disagree, you don't understand the physics or do not have the experience. Multi link live axles with coil or air springs works better than leaves. Leaves as springs can be made to work, but there are still compromises and you really need to add some linkage and at that point, there is no reason to use them anymore. Leaves were used as they provide a simple linkage and spring in one, not because they were the best solution. These are pictures of the Defender. Production has started... This is not R&D. It is just reliability checks. As to the D5, this is a picture of one with the bumper off. Nobody with ten minutes of off road experience would put oil cooler in front of the front wheels.
  18. In the other video from that sighting, the guys driving confirmed is was the new Defender.
  19. Oh yes, it is there. But they don't show a different switch number. Typical Land Rover.
  20. Which makes sense as that is what was used with older gearboxes. There is probably another part number for that if you could ever find a part manual for a short bellhousing R380. The switch itself should not change.
  21. Test your switch carefully on the bench. If it does not close contacts with a slight press, it is bad. The aftermarket ones are usually bad.
  22. No clue. Is your truck a factory 300TDI with an R380? Maybe someone changed the connectors. If it was a retrofit from an LT77, that is what you would have.
  24. The only difference is the connectors. The older one CDU51 has bullets. The newer one AMR3918 has an econoseal connector. The switches are the same.
