  1. Hello, I recently bought a 2000 D2, reminiscing about my d1 that left me stranded and so its really an R2D2. Any how all jokes aside, I bought it and it didn't run so I changed the starter and wired a butt ton to by pass the interrupter at the ignition switch ( the same was done on the d1, not my first rodeo) I had issues getting the trunk door open on both too and forgot what i did to get it open but by pure magic one day while trying all the tricks and trade secrets by experts in the field of car thieves (such as trying to reach the original cast and crew of gone in sixty seconds per se) drinking lots of beer and going at her again one day the land rover gods came down from the heavens and the back door opened just long enough to spray down the mold then re-locking again with all my tools and cleaning product to sit in the back to suffer separation anxiety because now I cant drive it, i cant clean it and now i cant even get in it. The drivers side window is open just enough to allow me to get a special made tool (a machete with a broken handle taped to a thin metal brace used to stabilize my metal shelving unit) so i can "tap" the center of the dashboard button and "unlock the door as if i were sitting in it, though then the battery seems dead so I easily removed the grill and cut away the plastic bezel with a rotozip opened the hood and disconnected the battery and charged it, reconnected it and used ye ole special tool and gave it the "quick tap" (my new term for my new process with my invented tool) to no avail. What to do here? Buy a couple of them online for cheap because they don't run either just for parts? Help help this rover is trying to bend me over for the dealership, help
  2. Hi guys, New user and first post. My father-in-law has a defender 90 (2.5L 1996) that has an issue, was hoping you guys could help point us in the right direction Was driving the defender and he lost the clutch, he had a pedal but couldn't get any drive. So you put your foot down on the pedal and select a gear then when you start to lift it make a grinding / rattle noise. Get no movement at all. With the engine off you can cycle through and select every gear. We have tried it in high and low box. Diff locked and diff unlocked. Still can't get any movement. We suspected the slave cylinder, so took that off and all is well, re-assembled and reverse bled the system. Still have a clutch pedal but the problem persists. Jacked up all four corners to see if we could get any movement in any gear. Wheels don't move at all. Has anyone come across anything like this before? We don't know if its gearbox related or clutch related, was hoping for some feedback so we know where to check next! Any help would be appreciated, we don't mind doing any of the work we just need to know where to start. Cheers
  3. Hi All, A friend of mine is looking for someone to provide a LR Series for a photoshoot in Stonehaven on Friday 10th March. Looking for volunteers, I think it's a paid job.... Unfortunately mine is a 1992 Defender so not old school enough... If anyone is keen please send images to the producer: Michelle michelle@lsproductions.com Here's the facebook link: Thanks in advance, Dod

  5. Hi, We recently bought a 1999 Freelander 2nd hand from a couple down the road. After the freezing cold night on Sunday, we went to drive to the shops and found that the car wouldn't start. The engine cranked slowly and the injector clicked. Suspecting it was a low battery, we attempted to bump-start the car to no avail (though we probably didn't do it right anyway). Yesterday we called out breakdown and the lad attempted to jump-start the car, which also failed. He suspected a dodgy fuel pump, and (with the jump-starter still connected) after kicking the fuel tank the car started once but failed on subsequent attempts. We added 10L of fuel last night, just in case, but this afternoon the car failed to start again, and the battery seems to be almost out too as lights pulse when the engine cranks over. After doing some searching on the internet I found a YouTube video detailing how to replace the fuel pump & sender unit. Now here's the fun part... Under the under-seat mats in the rear of the car, we discovered dodgy wiring and a VERY rusty pump cover. I've put together a huge collection of images here. Would any of you kind souls be willing to take up the mats in your Freelander and show us what it's supposed to look like under there? Also, do you have any ideas about what could be causing the issue (and how to rectify it)? Sam
  6. Hi guys. I am new to owning a discovery 1 and would like to change my regular lights on the rear to led's I am changing all, brake lights, indicators etc etc but i have never really done any wiring in cars and don't want to mess it up but I need to start somewhere. I was wondering if someone could help me with the wiring of the disco, e.g what cables do what. The led's I have are just (live and neutral) any help would be greatful. I have a discovery 1 1994 es auto 7 seater. Cheers Matt

  8. hi, in detail if possible, can some one tell me or show me how to install a 300tdi fuse box into a 200 tdi rrc(1993 to be exact), ive cut out all the old crappy fuse links, and now have two bunches of wires, 1 from the range rover side and 1 from the 300tdi fuse box, which wires connect to which wire or fuse, all the 200tdi wires are orange and another colour, all the fuse box wires are brown and another colour, some fuses i need and some i dont, i have no diagrams to follow, and not much else, and id prefer not to set my car on fire, if possible, so can someone assist me please, many thanks in advance.
  9. Hi All, Was looking for some advice... I recently took a gamble and purchased a cheap 4.6L V8 petrol engine which I believe came from a P38 Rangey. The question is will it go in my 1990 defender 90 and how much modification will be required. I also have no idea about gearboxes etc. My defender currently has a LT77 gearbox with a 200tdi disco engine in but im also concerned about propshaft sizes whether a standard one will fit or not. I basically need an exact list of all the items I need. Another obstacle I have is I have no idea if the engine actually runs or not and as I don't own/work in a garge I am not sure how I can find this out. As you can probably tell im a bit of a novice at this but there is only one way to learn! Any ideas/advice given would be greatly appreciated.

  12. Hi there, I have a rover 3.5v8 with twin SU carbs. However the plugs seem to be fouling and causing a frequent missfire on a few cylinders. It will be fine for around 20 miles but then the plugs need cleaning again. The plugs are black and fairly oily. If anyone has any ideas I would be really grateful as this is quite an annoying issue!! I have only just put the engine into the series and started driving it. Thanks in advance
  13. Hello i am new to the whole forum thing but i really need your help. I have a 2004 Land Rover Freelander. I changed it's battery and now my radio tells me that i need to insert a code.

Sorry for my english i am 49 years old ...
  14. Hi, just wondering if any one could help me diagnose what is wrong with my TD4 (2002) I have had no problems with it until the weekend. as I was driving once it got to 30mph there seemed to be no pull and like the power wasn't there. it did gain speed but very slowly. as I was taking it to the garage on Monday it cut out and the engine management light came on, I had it towed but once it got there it started first time and there was no engine management light... I am a bit useless when it comes to knowing about anything like this (I have to admit I rely on my dad and if he's not about what the garage tells me it is ) But now every one is a little bit stummed as the engine management light is now off so its not coming up with any fault. any ideas on what it could be would be greatly appreciated Thanks
  15. Hello all, So, I have a real love for these ex military, olive green land rovers. I think they look the business. I really want to get one but is this just a crazy dream? realistically I know its not the cheapest vehicle to run but it has everything and does everything i need and want from a 4x4 which is to have it support my adventurous hobbies (climbing, yomping, camping, power kiteing.. and many more...) and aid me with work (I'm an apprentice carpenter). After all it looks the nuts too. Could somebody please try and make me see sense, is it sensible for me to get one? as I'm sure you are all aware being an apprentice in any trade isn't great pay. So what am I taking on? responsibilities etc.. realistic cost's. Any help would be really appreciated I would love to see myself behind a wheel of one. kind regards. Ben
  16. Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum & Land Rovers in general. I now own a 1991 Defender 90 pick up truck (2.5 NA Diesel) & I'm in the process of tidying it up as it was purchased from a farm (lots of encrusted animal poo included). Most of the panels are a mismatch in colour & the wheels were/are awful (tidying the steelies up). Onto my electrical problem; My headlights have started playing up. My OS light works on sidelight, normal beam & high beam, whereas my NS light only works on the high beam? I've searched the internet/forums & most point to the light switch/stalk, but mine works on full beam so doesn't that rule it out? I've then gone into the fuse box & this is the diagram. In red is the number of the fuse actually in the holder. In blue are the bits that I've managed to find out it's use: I pulled fuses 11-14 all out, & the lights still worked (as described before)?. At first I thought the fuse box had been screwed in upside down due to the strange fuse locations, but I found the fog light fuse ruling out that thought. I have no idea what 15-17 do either. Any advice on what it could be, what I would need to test certain parts & also how to do those tasks (as I know very little about the electrics) would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance - Robert (Rabit)
  17. Hello folks, I'm new to the forum and I was wondering if you could share some knowledge with me if you don't mind? The cable has snapped on the driver side window regulator. Are those repair kits on ebay up to the job for replacing it? Its an 03 TD4 Also are there any how to's on this site or online to help me out? Thanks
  18. Hope you Military types can help with this one. I bought a box of WMIK CES kit from withams, expecting some roll cage bars and weapons mounts etc, but have ended up with a collection of canvases and leads I cant identify. Some of them I can use but there are a couple of large canvases I cant work out. One is a newish nato green heavy duty canvas, long enough to cover a 110 but has a diagonal flap along each side which doesnt match any vehicles I know of. It has a velcro closure at the rear which lines up with the defender door but there are no attatchments at the front for the screen loops or pips. The other one is a desert sand colour heavy duty canvas tent which has door flaps at either end, each flap has 6 buckle straps set on the outside, and a large zipped flap above the flap on one end big enough to act as another door. The whole tent thingy more that covers a 110 van and has elasticated lines running all around the base with hook attachments at the ends. I can post some photos later if anyone needs them to help identify them In the box also were 2 heavy duty body bags(!) and 6 body blankets which are essentially green plastic tarps with cotton lining. Obviously essential for realism when doing up a military vehicle! Oh and I have two tank jump leads going spare if anyones interested. Probably worth about £40 in scrap for the copper and brass fittings at each end. Free to anyone who has a tank they will fit and wants to collect them from South Wales or a donation to the site plus postage.
  19. hi guys, hope you can help, got an ex mod 90 fitted with 300 tdi, problem is temp gauge reads wrongly,have been told i need a sender unit from the n/a 2-5 diesel that was originally fittted, prob is there are 2, red and blue, which one do i fit ???
  20. i am rebuilding a 1989 defender 110 or landrover 110 nut sure exactly which one because i am aware that 1989 was the year they changed but anyway i am now at the stage where i am ready to start the engine for the first time in three years, yes it has taken a while. i have wired it up with a split charge and carefully read the instructions that came with it, when i turned the key nothing happened not a single light on the dash or a click. i am no automotive electrician but im am nearly sure it is something to do with the starter motor or alternator not being earthed correctly or i hav the wrong wires connected to the ignition. would anybody be able to tell me which wires connect to the ignition. the landrover was a 2.5 petrol i think from reading the chassis number but now has an iveco 2.5td which i think was fitted by frogs island, any help would be greatly appreciated.
