Found 130 results

  1. Hi, I've recently been driving a new (2010) 130 which is lovely compared to my rattly One Ten but the brakes are odd and I'm looking for advice. The servo works fine and it brakes really well with a firm pedal (not as firm as mine but I have just replaced the brake system very recently except servo and pump) but if you brake to a stop and keep your foot pressing on the pedal, it slowly drops all the way to the floor. It is slow and not a sudden drop but it does sink all the way. Both their same aged vehicles do exactly the same. Their garage have checked it over, checked for leaks, checked brake fluid and checked the master cylinder for leaks (not sure how they did that) and then asked one of their "Ford time serviced mechanics" who said that its a transit engine and components, and that transits do exactly the same and release brake pressure after stopping and "they all do that". As anyone who has seen my previous posts on this forum knows, I'm no expert but this doesn't make sense to me.

    clutch failure diagnosis

    How far should the clutch pushrod protrude from the bellhousing/ slave cylinder joint face if all is well with clutch plate, release bearing and fork is the question, here's the history... 1986 ex MOD 90 FFR (FFS!) 12Jnad, I recently (about 1000 km) replaced the clutch, release bearing, master and slave cylinders, mostly with the mid-price 'OE suppliers' parts from Rimmer bros. Clutch felt/worked fine on re-assembly, if with a little more freeplay than I expected. It failed today, freeplay progressivly increasing until it wouldn't dis-engage, pedal to the floor. I have found no leaks in either the master or slave or the line, clutch fluid at reasonable level although black, which leads me to suspect seals in the master. However, on taking off the slave and pumping the clutch the slave piston moves seemingly normally. The clutch pushrod seems to be still attached to the fork and protrudes from the slave mating surface by about 12mm (half an inch in LR speak!). I'd like to know if that is normal, so allowing me to concentrate on the hydraulics, rather than diving into the clutch, not my favourite way of spending a saturday night. This is my first post on here so big thanks in advance for any help you can give me, the Landie is my only form of transport up here in the Sabine hills north of Rome, I get to go 'off road' every day, just to get the milk, and beer, so this is urgent...!🍻

    Wiper swtich

    I have located the following online https://www.landroverworkshop.com/connectors/defender-2007/C0073 Where do these cables run from the harness back to the battery box? I assume they are the ones coming in the centre of the vehicle side?
  4. Can anyone tell me the part number of the retaining sleeve circled in red? They come in plastic or metal. Thanks

    Transmission tunnel

    I need to access and inspect the diff lock lever as it keeps popping out. Ive seen some people mention the best way is to remove the internal transmission tunnel and get to it from the top. Anyone got any photos or hints on how to do this in a 09 defender?

    Wheel Arch Sizing

    May be a stupid question but is there a measurement so you can tell if your vehicle is fitted with standard wheel arch’s or plus 2’s for example? I need to replace one on my defender but want to make sure they are just standard ones cheers

    Rear door lock

    Hi all, I am looking to replace either the barrel or whole lock assembly on my defender rear door but am having problems sourcing the correct part.
  11. Defender 90 (2002) TD5 - Really struggling to refit fuel tank and tank guard. Any tips greatly appreciated. There's just so little space to work in. Got the tank located but getting the guard into position seems impossible. Struggled for ages to get the front located over the chassis carriers but it all fell out went i tried to edge it forward to get the cross member studs in place. Big hammers, jacks, blocks of wood ...... should it really be this difficult? Thanks, Jim
  12. Hi Folks,Problem with the immobiliser on my Defender TD5 99'.Fitted new front LED spotlights yesterday. Disconnected battery using correct procedure. Disconnected old lights and wired in new lights. Reconnected battery before bolting new lights into place to check all was ok. Lights all working - no problems.Disconnected battery again using correct procedure and finished bolting lights into place. Checked connections one last time and all secure. Reconnected battery again.This time small blue light started flashing on top of the dash panel and when trying to start siren goes off and engine immobilised. Removed negative terminal and siren stops. When I reconnect the negative terminal there is no alarm only when I try to start engine.I've tried searching on the internet and these forums but it's a bit of mine field. Can any one explain to me what exactly is going on?Thanks in advance.Sam

    Leaking 200 tdi

    Hi everyone hope you can help me with this. From what I can work out the cooling system froze up in the cold weather we've had. It did have anti freeze in it but obviously not enough or something. Now water pours out as of a hole above the drain point for the cooling system as fast as I can pour it in, hopefully the pictures will make it a bit clearer. If anyone can let me know what this could be and how bad it possibly is, I'm worried that it's pretty bad at the minute and then engines coming out. thanks
  14. Hey guys, I have 2000 Defender 90 TD5. It's the XS model so came with ABS. Over the last year it had developed the infamous 3 amigos. But they didn't all light at once. When you started up ABS and TC remained lit. Then upon using the brakes for the first time after starting, there was little to no braking power. It felt like the brakes were grinding. After letting off the brake and braking again they worked perfectly (without ABS) but the brake warning lamp came on and stayed on. I had the codes read with a Hawkeye Pro and it was throwing everything related to ABS. The mechanic suggested removing ABS entirely and replacing with non-ABS braking system. He specialises in Land Rovers had done it previously to another Defender. So now the jobs all done, braking is perfect, but the 3 lights are constantly illuminated. Reading the codes shows the following: "ECU ground or Reference ground fault" "Front Left sensor electrical failure" Clearing the codes gets rids of the sensor fault but ECU ground fault stays, and the 3 amigos never go out. Has anyone has any similar experiences or idea on where to start looking? I used a multi-meter to test the ground from ECU to -ve terminal and it was fine.
  15. Hi to All, I am in the process of rebuilding a 200tdi defender engine I recently purchased. After inspecting the cylinder head I noticed some marks next to the valves as shown in the pictures. Does anyone know what is this and what caused it? Do I ignore it or more attention is needed? Thanks in advance!!
  16. Hi Folks, Rebuilding dash on 1997 Defender 300 Tdi Trying to source some original screws/washers (4 of them) that hold the instrument panel (speedo/fuel/temp/clock) into the dash. Similarly, also looking for the set of 4 screws/washers that hold the metal plate plate behind the instrument panel. Have attached an image from the handbook and highlighted the screws that interested in, i.e. 8 screws in total. If you have the different types of washers too that'd be brill. Apologies if this seems odd. Trying to do a rebuild of the dash with original parts. Land Rover no longer have them. The screws will be black - Example image attached also. 4 x No8 5/8" 4 x No6 1/2" Many Thanks, Simon...
  17. Good evening everyone, I'm new to the world of the Defender having purchased my first one on Sunday. I know the heaters in these things are renowned for being woeful, however my heater control lever is jammed solid, with no movement whatsoever available. Has anyone encountered this before, and have any tips on how to free it? Many thanks in advance.
  18. I have always enjoyed driving the 300 TDI since 1997, i currently face problems when i drive over an hour and the engine is heated. Once i turn off the engine, my car can't be started anymore. There isn't even any cranking, relay or solenoid sound. Does anyone here face this similar problem? Would you please share your experience and suggest what's wrong with my car?

    300Tdi Defender no horn

    1) Hi, my horn has stoped working. Horn works when supplied with 12v (purple/black) and 12v arrives at Fuse 10 fom the switch (purple/black). Supply lost somewhere between the horn switch/fuse 10 and the horn itself. I can't find the horn on the RAVE wiring diagram for this car but surprisingly the switch is shown on the Engine Immobilisation schematic. It feeds Fuse 10 then the alarm relay (R200). The horn is not shown. Any clues as to how the supply gets to the horn would be appreciated. 2. I have checked the alarm relay and it is fine but not as shown on the schematic. The schematic shows 87A connected to 87 internally, I do not believe this to be correct. I understood that if the relay has 87A it should be a changeover, normally made contact with 30 as the common. My relay doesn't have 87A but has 87B which is a double pole single throw relay with 30 as the common. I have had the vehicle for 14 years and never changed a relay and the horn worked until recently. Can anyone throw any light on this? 3) I checked the alarm function and it flashes the indicators but makes no sound. I do not have a sounder shown as D110 on the schematic but have a battery backed unit shown as D154. I assume this to be faulty. I did (long after having no horn, so unconnected) let the vehicle's battery go flat a few days ago and wondered how long it takes to charge the sounder battery. I not that the manual says it charges from the generator so presumably needs the ignition on to do so. I guess, if that is the case, it is to stop the vehicke battery being discharged by charging the sounder battery. Any info appreciated.

    ATTENTION: Land Rover 110 1984

  21. Hi all, I have a Defender 91" 200tdi and recently the clutch pedal has started to feel soft and the biting point has dropped. On one occasion it was very hard to change gears. The clutch is about 2yrs old heavy duty ( last time it went it was the bearing/ pivot ball I think). Pedal has always been slightly soft for the first inch, but now is noticeable softer till about an inch or two off the bottom. No leaks or noticeable drop in fluid in the reservoir. I thought it might just need the pedal to be adjusted which I've done but still no luck. Any suggestions? Cheers, Ben

    Intercooler TD5

    My TD5 Defender 2000MY passed it's MOT with advisory of impending Intercooler failure. See picture. I bought it 4 years ago and been tidying it up all round and last year found turbo boost up to nearly 2bar. Reduced to around 1.5 max now. Is this a result of that over boosting?! Got a new one to fit now and looking at easiest way without removing coolant rad. Looking at previous I'm thinking of putting a tie wrap around the middle to support the lower frame?
