  1. Or, can I just remove fuse number 6, 10 amps, air conditioning (see attached - I hope it transmits - never posted a scan before!) to isolate the compressor clutch instead of unplugging the clutch wire as suggested above? Scan taken from Discovery handbook. Thank you for your ongoing help, all. It's very much appreciated.
  2. I have no need to do this and hopefully never will - but I came across V8 Freak's description purely by chance & being curious and want to say what a fantastic explanation! Most comprehensive words & excellent pics, too.
  3. No doubt wise words, bear. Thank you.
  4. Thank you for that, bear. It looks like a multi-pin connector? Will get to the car later to see. Do I need to identify a single lead (ie for the clutch) or can I just disconnect the connector complete, please?
  5. Please could you help me identify the clutch wire to which you refer, supaimpy?
  6. Thank you for your most speedy and very useful reply, bear. Much appreciated.
  7. The a/c on my D2 has failed and requires a new condenser (leaking) - too costly for me to replace at the moment! The cabin heater and a/c dashboard controls are integrated. Is it ok for me to continue using the heater, please? Do I need to or can I isolate the a/c in any way? If it is ok to continue using the heater will any damage occur to the a/c system? Very many thanks for any help & advice, in anticipation.
  8. Thank you, Blanco, for your reply which gave me a good start and to you, bear, for the actual parts drawing. Excuse my ignorance but is the knuckle part no 1 in the drawing? Also, any recommendations wrt the best supplier / manufacturer of the ball joints, please?
  9. I've been told that a ball joint dust cover at the lower end of the front suspension on my D2 TD5 is deteriorating. Please could someone help me identify what & where this part is? Also, is it a safety critical item and how easy would it be to replace? Thank you very much in anticiation of your help.
  10. Thank you Blanco and BogMaster for your input. Very much appreciated and your advice gets me off to a good start.
  11. Please could somebody recommend a reasonable make of tyre for my TD5? Size 255/65R16 Road use only. 3-4k miles per annum maximum To be generally available, ie easily purchased make. Also, would two new tyres on one axle only be a problem for the transmission / differentials due to differing circumference front / rear (say)? Thank you for your help in anticipation, very much appreciated.
  12. No probs. Out of interest, I wonder if is it permitted to remove a headlamp washer assembly on a post-2009 vehicle and hence not have anything to fail on the Mot?
  13. Thank you for that, Bowie69. Hadn't come across that before, something I've learned today.
  14. Ally V8 - Which part(s) of the above conversation was edited, please?
  15. sierrafery - very many thanks for explaining the circuit and the test tip. I appreciated it. BogMaster - I liked your approach to the problem! However, having an aversion to something fitted which is not working plus having the vehicle from new and my trying to keep is 'as original' as possible (a odd trait of mine!) I think I will try to fix and should I fail then I will adopt you approach. Very many thanks, anyway.
