  1. Right, tomorrow I will be with family Hompes to enjoy the privileges of a lift to play on, this is to remedy the non functioning handbrake. I picked up a set of shoes "just in case" but the more I read up, the more this points to a seized expander, bit more googling later and searching out some pics of one in bits, it struck me as a rather poor thing to start with, no rubber "O" rings on pistons or actuator and no grease point to enable some sort of maintenance, or do they so rarely fail that the design was never updated? Interested to hear other opinions on this.
  2. Hello everyone, Sorry to open up another handbrake topic, but I couldn't find a solution elsewhere. My handbrake was very stuck a few nights ago, (probably after getting to adventurous in all this flooding). I ended up loosening the handbrake adjuster as much as I could, which wasn't very far which was odd. Ended up hitting it with a hammer and rocking her eventually loosening it enough to drive on it which was probably a bad idea. Anyhow today I attempted to clean it all up, took of the prop and drum screws etc and tried to pull the bleedinn thing off, the drum came out about 5mm and then wouldn't budge, couldn't spin it either anymore. I then tried to loosen the adjuster even more assuming the shoes weren't in enough. However the adjuster was completely stuck.The handbrake spins but it still drags. Shouldn't the adjuster, adjust much more? How do I get the drum off? Cheers
  3. I have a really strange problem that has completely baffled me and am hoping somone can shed some light on it, I have a military series 3 ffr about a year back i done a 200di conversion which is great, anyway to the problem, I drove up to north yorkshire for christmas a 260 mile trip spent a week exploring with no problems, halfway home pulled into the service station to give us and the landy a bit of a rest and found i couldn't select 1st or 2nd gear, i had a quick check nothing seemed out of place so as we was on the motorway the whole way home decided to carry on home, no strange noises or any other problems apart from selecting 1st and 2nd. Got home and found one of the gearbox mounts had split right through and the other was looking a bit tierd. No problem i thought i replaced the mounts hoping it would solve the problem which as far as selecting the gears it did. Now for the strange part, when i reverse, as soon as i dip the clutch the landy stops sharp as if i had pulled up on the hand brake, if there is drive from the engine it's fine it only does it when i dip the clutch, it's fine in neutral and all forward gears. i adjusted the hand brake all the way off just incase it was something to do with that but it has made no difference. if anyone has any idea what could cause this i would be eternally grateful for any help. cheers John
  4. Hi guys! My handbrake keeps jamming up every time mud makes an appearance... Which is better. Fitting a disc conversion or have a drum handbrake? Because I'm not sure if keeping the drum and cleaning it all the time is worth it. Are discs any better??
  5. Hi Guys Recently had MOT and they found I needed rear end exhaust. I purchased a Britpart exhaust and it did not fit. I posted on here for advice and what I got was that some of you feel Britpart are none too good on quality and fit. To save you looking at my other posting I had to cut off and move the hanger bracket to the correct position. So, my post this time is :- Where should I buy my replacement handbrake cable? LR dealer just quoted me £81 plus vat for a genuine LR replacement, whereas my local Britpart supplier said £24, so some difference. But we are talking brakes here, not window winder handle, so I don't want to buy rubbish or an ill fitting part. Is the Britpart cable OK, is there a better alternative or is there a quality difference for genuine LR part to justify cost difference? Thanks. Oh out of interest. After exhaust done, put back for re test, went to collect from MOT station, guy said, All done mate, passed this time, but your handbrake cable is broken. It passed MOT OK but as we reversed it off the ramp and parked it up the cable snapped.
  6. I've noticed that when parking on a hill and putting the handbrake on it seems to bounce forward slightly and then back.....(gave my mum the shock of her life as she thought it wasn't working and we were about to hit the cars in front!) is this normal? I've also noticed some small drips of fluid coming from the handbrake underneath the vehicle.......could a leek be the cause of this?
