  1. 200TDI won't start

    Have you cracked the injector pipe connections at the pump end to check if the low pressure is consistent or if there is indeed fuel at 1&2? Is there a possibility of the injectors being blocked/choked?
  2. Plug identification for fog/daylight lights

    The ones in question have two external guides plus the lock latch and the central divider. Different from the td5 indicator plugs in the link.
  3. Plug identification for fog/daylight lights

    Well I did assume once identified that he’d source a local one.
  4. Plug identification for fog/daylight lights

    Looks like a standard h11 bulb connector ... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/H11-H8-Ceramic-Bulb-Holder-2x-Socket-Connector/261904224719?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D46150%26meid%3D2a0c0cef46204c40a986c99f7cb3cff2%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D172084076840&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851 not to be confused with an h9 as it has two dividers in the plug rather than one
  5. Removal of 1991 vintage CSW original LR paint

    You get filler specifically designed for awkward metals like galv and aluminium https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/Bondo-Professional-Gold-Filler?N=5002385+8709313+8711413+8746138+3293242371&rt=rud Straight onto bare finish but it doesn’t mention t-wash/mordant solution prior to application. I’d be tempted to drop their tech line an email to see. On my bulkhead I t-washed, etch primed and then hit it with multiple layers of high build primer that could be flatted back to a nice paint worthy level. It came out well
  6. 200TDI won't start

    Yes the tdci/td5 switch is different from the tdi one...old age is kicking in and I can't remember what I did lol. pretty sure it's the glow plug circuit part that needs tweaked though...
  7. Transition from td5 to Puma.

    I must admit the simplicity of the tdi where only one electrical input is required to keep it running has its benefits. Still, as things go the td5 isn't the most complicated setup.
  8. 200TDI won't start

    My 200 has a penchant for fuel cut off solenoids. Do not assume it's working because you can hear the solenoid "click". Part number is RTC6702, it's a 10minute swap and a very simple thing to rule out. As for the starter not engaging unless the solenoid is connected, it's a very basic wiring system. Ignition fed live to the fuel solenoid and the starter solenoid fed from the "start" position on the ignition barrel. I can't really see why disconnecting one should affect the other...do you have the white and white/red wires in the proper place on the ignition barrel switch?
  9. defender heater controls

    The selector can be mounted either way as it actually clamps itself into the aperture left by the old switch assembly. There are no restrictions on orientation...either by design or by accident!
  10. Transition from td5 to Puma.

    Yes, the 2.2 and 2.4 engines are lovely in the Transits ...my 120k transit 2.2 sounds like the proverbial bag of spanners...I'm waiting with baited breath for its catastrophic failure. The 256k td5 in the new project purred like a kitten in comparison. At work we've had numerous failings from cranks, to cams and timing chain failures although mainly on the 2.4 145 version. And lets face it, as dirty diesels go an unsilenced td5 sounds lovely.
  11. defender heater controls

    No, still forwards when fitted to the proper side of the vehicle lol. I had to extend the wiring approx 12" for the heater splice and sited the unit on front of the heater box, not on the side as suggested by the LHD instructions.
  12. New Defender

    That supacat has a strangely alluring look....Ewok lights and clamshell bonnet but still makes me think of a Toyota Land Cruiser...must be going mad.
  13. defender heater controls

    I use Bing translator on my iPad , I assume it will work on a pc too. On my initial purchase they were awaiting stock and were more than happy to correspond via email in English to keep me updated.
  14. Defender windscreen glass question

    I fitted my heated screen, using the string (use paracord...it won't break). I did splurge on a genuine seal and have had no issues with leaks. An assistant is useful but not necessary (I managed solo) and having strong fingers to pry and manipulate the seal as you go helps. Having the seal warm also makes it more pliable so keep it inside rather than leaving in the cold, or a few minutes in front in the space heater.
  15. Evoque Turbo Problems

    14MY? Do Landrover not offer a 3yr warranty worldwide? Even if it's just expired I'd be hoping for some goodwill from LR/dealer if the car has been serviced and maintained to schedule.
