  1. 200tdi rear lights fault

    Ok the problem was the rear earths that screw dawn to the rear tub . To be honest I never thought of these as being important as they earth to the alloy tub and I never thought alloy made a very good earth . Obviously that's me being an idiot because if they weren't important they wouldn't be there
  2. Rear axle swap

    I put 300tdi disco axles on my 90 to up grade from 10 spline to 24 spline and obviously discs on back . Payed £50 each for complete axles . Swaped front callipers for ones off my 90 and put new callipers on back . discs were mint . All came off a scrap disco
  3. 200tdi rear lights fault

    OK bit if an odd one . hopeing someone has had something similar to offer some advice as where to start . All front lights are working as they should . but the only ones at the back working are nearside side and brake light and number plate light . nothing at all works on off side . I have checked voltage and only getting about 6v to off side . If I put indicators , revers or fog lights on the nearside lights that do work go off so nothing is on . once the others are turned off the nearside side light works again . I'm guessing its probably an earth fault but has any one got any other ideas or witch earths it might be . All lights are led sealed units Thanks for any help

  11. 4" lift Antiroll bars ?

    Hi a friend has just bought a 300tdi disco for using at payday sites to save damaging his td5 . He has just bought a second hand 4" lift kit for it but I was thinking it will be better with the roll bars removed . Am I right in thinking this

  15. Brake problem

    Hi got a strange problem with the brakes on my 200 tdi 90 . Normal day to day breaking is spot on as good as it always has been . Last night though I had to slam on the brakes and the pedal just went solid and the brakes were not good Felt like when being towed with engine off . Ie no servo assistance . After the slam on under normal braking every thing is good . This morning I tried a couple off emergency braking tests and every time it's like no assistance . So I'm thinking servo problem or vac pump problem . Is there anyway to test these and has anyone had a similar problem .
