These might help. There is a socket behind the paneling in the rear O/S corner and you can buy the proper plug from LR or ou can do what I did and cut the socket off and use a strip off connector blocks.

Adjusting the wheel bearings is the same from the early series to the 300TDi Discovery. The twin taper roller bearing arrangement was and still is a popular arrangement. Vehicle is a 1981 SWB S3.
This is a very easy job, and doesn't even require removal of the road wheel. You do however need to jack the wheel clear of the ground in order to check any play in the bearing. In order to ascertain if you need to do replace the bearing or adjust it - then grip the wheel at the 3 and 9 o-clock position, and try to rock the wheel. If there is some movement - then spin the wheel. If the wheel spins smoothly, then it's pretty safe to say that the bearing only needs adjusting. If there is an audible rumbling, and/or a roughness, then the bearing will have to be replaced.
Front and rear bearings are the same, but on the front, you need to seperate the drive flange from the driveshaft - the CV joint (or U/J on series), prevents you from withdrawing the front driveshaft. On the rear, the flange and driveshaft can be removed as one.

Before jacking the wheel clear of the ground - slacken the 6 drive flange bolts.

(pic 1)


Jack the road wheel clear of the ground, remove the hub cap - steel on series, and a wierd type of rigid rubber on later vehicles.

(pic 2)

Series vehicles have a nut and split pin holding the driveshaft in the flange - defenders and disco's have a circlip and shims.

Remove it, plus the 6 flange bolts.

(pic 3)


If the flange is stuck, and they usually are, use this method (or similar), to break the seal.

(pic 4)

Once removed - the two nuts, and lockwasher can be seen.

(pic 5)

Tap a screwdriver, blunt chisel, or similar tool between the lockwasher and outer nut face.

(pic 6)

The outer nut can now be undone using the correct box spanner or 52mm/1 1/16" socket.
Once the outer nut is removed - remove also the tab washer.

(pic 7)

You should now be looking at this:-

(pic 8)

Using the same socket - tighten the nut and spin the wheel....

Relay Basics: [​IMG]A relay is used to isolate one electrical circuit from another. It allows a low current control circuit to make or break an electrically isolated high current circuit path. One example where a relay is useful in car audio is in the power antenna or remote output of a head unit. We already said that the average remote lead can only handle about one half of an amp of current. If a circuit with a large amount of current must be controlled by the remote output lead of a head unit, a relay could be used to buffer the remote output from the head unit. The basic relay consists of a coil and a set of contacts. The most common relay coil is a length of magnet wire wrapped around a metal core. When voltage is applied to the coil, current passes through the wire and creates a magnetic field. This magnetic field pulls the contacts together and holds them there until the current flow in the coil has stopped. The diagram below shows the parts of a simple relay.
[​IMG]
Relay Demo: Drag your mouse over the picture below. You'll see how the relay closes to allow current to flow through the bottom lamp when the coil is connected to the power source. You can see how current flows through either set of contacts depending on the position of the movable contact. If you have a slow connection, you may have to hold your mouse over the image until it loads completely. Since this page has a LOT of graphics, this will work best if you let the page load completely before using this demo. Clicking on the picture will bring the image to the top of the frame. [​IMG]
The table below shows just a fraction of the available relay configurations....

I know this is nothing new but I am going to fit the egr blanking plate to my Td5 so I can get one from e bay for under a tenner, but Td5 Alive sell them with another pipe fitting but they are £50 is there any difference, and if I use the e bay gear what happens to the pipework with the valve in it? Does everybody fit anything other than the blanking plate? I am a bit confused.:)

[​IMG] Range Rover seats in a Defender
Just got mesel' a set of rear range rover back seats for the bus (Def 110):D
What ah'd like to know is, how do ah go about securing them? The bottom looks as if it might be straight forward, but what about the top/side mount? Can probably get the striker/ securing bracket things if needs be.
Cheers;) :D
