  1. Removing back plate of handbrake

    I have '97 300 TDI Defender - am planning to fit new handbrake cable and service the handbrake drum etc is it possible to get the handbrake back plate drum without removing the drive flange thing ? Thanks in advance
  2. Clutch master cyclinder : gunk

    Thanks for the advice - ended up changing both master and slave and all is now well.
  3. Clutch master cyclinder : gunk

    My '97 300 TDI Defender started weaping from the clutch master cyclinder into the foot well - so naturally wanted to replace it with OEM The new cyclinder is fitted and surprisingly I have most of the skin on my knuckles too; the old cyclinder had alot of black gunk at the bottom of the reservoir which I presume is from the degradation of the seals and the fluid was a muddy dark color. So my question - given the state of the fluid I was going to drain out all the old fluid from the slave and refil with fresh. Is there anything else I can or should do to remove any additional gunk ? thanks in advance
  4. Rear shocks : sqeak sqeak

    I replaced the rear shocks on my 90 300tdi about 6 months ago - the bushes were pinged at the last MoT and they also squeaked like b*gg*ery. Now the new ones have started to do the same - the squeak can be temporaryily cured by rotating the outer cuff - it stops for a day or so but then its back. They shocks I fitted were Armstrong How can I get rid of the squeaking ?? Thanks in advance

  7. 300 TDi fuel pump leak : counsel please

    Hi WesternThanks for your help - the pipe shown joins onto the pump and then goes onto to the first injector as the bleed line So in the photo below its the pipe going from top right hand corner of the picture towards the centre where it attaches to the pump and then onwardso the first injector as a bleed line
  8. I was smug for 10 minutes having sorted the electrical gremlins - and then I spotted it..... I cleaned around the fuel lines leading to the pump to try and find it - switched on the engine and then is really Mildly miffed everywhere. The fuel line shown with the arrow in the picture is heavily pitted to the touch and needs to be replaced. Please can you kindly advise as to the part number (and if I need any of the other assocaited gaskets) and advice as to how its fitted - treat me like an idiot and you wont go too far wrong ! Many thanks Tim
  9. 300 TDi handbrake switch

    I found the problem which was the bullet connector from the handbrake switch underneith and behind the drivers seat had been damaged - all is now well. Thanks everyone
  10. 300 TDi handbrake switch

    Thanks Western - will have another rummage...
  11. 300 TDi handbrake switch

    Handbrake light on dash has stopped working; removed handbrake gaitor to examing connection and th connector is clearly broken on the switch. However if I hold single wire to the handbrake housing to ground the dashlight remains off Is there a fuse to check too ? As always thanks in advance...
  12. 300tdi: headlight fault diagnosis

    Thanks guys ..... You are right changed the indicator stalk...... Same problem.....so definately the main light switch....
  13. 300tdi: headlight fault diagnosis

    I know this is a topical question and the symptoms are side light and full main beam work fine. But switching small light switch stalk to have the headlights on results in nothing - even the dash indicator for the lights goes out I know 1/ its not the Pink relay behind the dash 2/ its not the relay in tge fuse panel behind the gearstick 3/all fuses good So its down to either the long indicator stalk or the smaller light switch stalk ? I presume its more likely to be the indicator stalk rather than the sidelight/headlight switch but how can I tell which is duff ? Thanks in advance for your counsel
  14. Uber-numptie question: transfer box

    I agree 100 percent - sadly they used to be good and I trusted them. That ship has sailed.
