  1. Heater to Bulkhead seal issue

    I cut a chunk from mine and bonded it back together. I had the same issue that as the seal compressed it didn't do it in a uniform manner and ended up squeezing itself out at one side. Seems to have worked...no leaks in 4yrs
  2. Which is best ?

    My van has a 24” eBay £50 Chinese special with the flood/spot combo lenses. It’s been on 3yrs and still works perfectly. The van used to sport a pair of Hella Rallye 3000s too which were great but not the same spread as the lightbar
  3. Which is best ?

    Re my lightbar. It's individually switched, the pic is on my driveway (farm road end). The bonnet glare is due to then pic from inside the cab. No issues when being used off-road. Every time these questions are raised the C&U regs are touted...pretty sure there will be more serious contraventions done to land rovers than a set of lights.
  4. What does this plug into?

    Ok trawled the d2 td5 electrical library... Brown/pink and an Orange?? Going by your pic and the one above this is it...however the cct code means it's on Japanese spec vehicles only...so maybe it wasn't connected at all?
  5. What does this plug into?

    Well, none of those colours tie in with the defender looms. Only green multiplug of that type under the bonnet goes where I said previously. Looked through the >02 onwards electrical library and couldn't find another green plug of that type.
  6. What does this plug into?

    EGR inlet...
  7. Which is best ?

    I had Rallye 3000s across the front of the 90 with osram night breakers fitted and they were very good... Plenty bright... but in response to your led lightbar query... they are no where near as good as my Rigid lightbar...it has Scanias dipping their lights miles away lol The lightbar wasn't cheap, but neither were the 3000s.
  8. Landreiziger blower motor switch kit

    On re-installing the dash I fitted a cable duct to ease fishing cables from one end to the other so save a bit of stripping. I have the under wing washer bottle so plenty of free space. Like you I fitted my control switch upside down on the first attempt
  9. Front brake locking / pressure valve

    It's a pressure reduction valve so it won't boost anything. Fitted on 90 models to stop the rears from being over braked, it's a ball that moves inside to limit flow to the rear circuit dependent on vehicle attitude under deceleration.
  10. Landreiziger blower motor switch kit

    Mine is on the front, my wiring runs along the inside of the dash above the heater plenum and then out the near side grommet...
  11. Landreiziger blower motor switch kit

    Yes, great piece of kit. A bit short on the loom for RHD models as it was designed for the LHD blower unit. It's plug and play on td5 looms, I'll be getting another unit for project 2.
  12. 2001 TD5 leaking fluid

    Colour of fluid and pics may help..."transmission fluid" usually means red/brown depending on state so could be from the powersteering pipes/steering box or from the gearbox itself. The transfer box has EP90 (be it whatever grade) so is the usual yellow/gold colour with pungent smell. Hard to say without looking, wipe everything clean as best you can then see what develops!
  13. Oooft! I've seen one of their 90s with delivery miles advertised at £80k...you got a link?
  14. New Template for LR to use Re: Defender

    I can see where your coming from, but JLR are not alone in their strategy. They don't make small cars like other major brands but focus on what they do, the freelander and now disco sport/evoque were their foray into smaller 4wd (note I didn't say affordable), JLR have the jag side of things to bolster their car portfolio so no need to produce a "car". Porsche aficionados weren't chuffed when they started making the cayenne as it was a dilution of the brand but they saw a market and went for it... they're now into the smaller territory with the Macan. Lamborghini, Bentley and Maserati are now producing niche market SUVs so at least Landrover hasn't decided to produce a sportscar... But had/having current Landrovers since the D2 was released up to the current D5 I assume I must be their target audience! Lol (be that good or bad!). I've tried other marques but always went back to a Discovery.
