    In specifics then...Pages 518-579 of the110 book that is posted so kindly at the beginning of this sticky. I have a leak at the front of my fuel tank, probably related to rubber washers on the bolts clamping it to the chassis, but can't find the drawings of what it should look like.

    What year, and what sort of engine does this "110" have?
    Are we talking Defender 110, or an actual One Ten?
    Plastic or metal fuel tank?
    And what makes you think that the leak is definitely to do with those particular washers?

    Defender 110, hence where I'm posting.
    1991 200tdi.
    Metal.
    Because that's the area where the fuel is concentrated after I've wiped it clean and driven round a while. That's why I wanted the exploded drawings from the parts catalogues that were so kindly posted at the beginning of this thread, unfortunately these particular pages seem to have been missed off. I don't know if it's possible for movement to cause wear from the bolt to the tank, whether the rubber washers have a sealing role or are just to absorb shocks when driving. The leak is so limited it implies that it's a washer or seal letting by, rather than an actual hole in the metal. May of course be a split in the seam in the area of the bolts, but I wanted some idea of what it should look like before I started disassembling things. There is no leak on the top or sides of the tank, only at the front towards the axle. There is no fluid leak from the axle or anywhere else that I can see or touch, even after having removed a piece of the floor to see the tank top.

    The washers on the outside of the tank don't seal in fuel, they are just to prevent vibration.
    The most common failure of the metal tanks is around the seam on the tank, followed by rusting through at the bottom, and failure of the gasket around the fuel intake and outlet plate on top of the tank.
    Fuel leaks are deceptive, diesel runs all over the place, damp patches and drips are not always where the fuel is actually leaking.
    You could try degreasing and washing off thoroughly, and further inspection.
    Or, as it is a diesel, so less safety risk, wait until the leak becomes more pronounced, and easier to diagnose.
    Either way, it would be best to identify the cause of the problem before ordering any parts.

    Hi the link to the paint finder is not working. I have a T reg Defender 110 in deep/dark blue and the paint code is missing under the Bonnet. Any ideas how I can find out?

    It is but given the nature of the post I think it would be good to have an updated link.

    Oh ... you mean the link that was posted 9 years ago :rolleyes:

    As above, do not be afraid of asking Google, it can be very helpful sometimes. :)

    How prophetic! :D “Sure loads will still ask rather than Google for themselves, but you never know..”

    Sorry I meant it would be helpful to update the link in the original post as it's been made a "sticky" thread.
    Forgive me for sounding cynical but if the answer was always "Google it", there wouldn't be much use in finding help on the forum would there?;)

    But are you not a member on here?
    If the link doesn’t work, then you can search as easily as anyone else. When you find the answers , then post it in here for the next person.

    that is what forums are about.

    You are correct I am a member.
    The only point I was trying to make was that it would be helpful to update the link in the original post so as to help people find what they’re looking for quickly which I’m sure is the point of this thread, instead of trying to find a recent link by reading through 4 pages of people bickering over who should find the link :rolleyes:

    And as a complete newbie to Land Rovers, I would not feel confident that I’m giving the correct advice from a Google search, hence why us newbies ask you experienced folk for the correct info.

    You will need to contact @Station House to ask him to do that. Last seen in here over a year ago.
