    Hello All

    OK as you will see from my other thread, I cocked up and bought the wrong CD changer. I am now seeing if I can compound this error with the side steps.

    I have bought a used pair of genuine Land Rover side steps with the above part number. I have the correct rivnuts/nutserts and tools to fit them, what I don't seem to have is the correct holes in the chassis to insert the little blighters.:confused:

    The same steps are fitted to my brother in laws 2002 Freelander no problem. Mine is 2000 vintage, is there any difference to anybody's knowledge? I have checked for holes cunningly concealed by pieces of tape and can't find any of these.

    Just to maintain a small amount of self pride, the towbar went on OK and the electrics work, so it's not all bad news.

    Thanks for all replies.

    Dave
