    Got home relatively early so I took the off side wing off. It looked quite solid with the plastic mud shield in place :(

    I just noticed this again. It wasn't am M6x20 flange headed bolt, it was an M6x25 flange headed bolt :eek: Blasted 20s are too short. Anyhow, problem was solved by Amazon of all places. Under a fiver for ten of 'em, overnight. That's a LOT cheaper than other (specialist L/R) places, and for more of 'em, so I now have spares ;)

    Also, FINALLY (only took a year!) got around to getting the EKA code for my wagon online (from http://www.mgrovercodes.com/land-rover/discovery-2/eka-code/); this cost a score, which is about three times cheaper than the local Land Rover dealership wanted! :eek:

    I've also ordered a couple of key fob shells for the fobs I've got, which are, shall we say, a leeeeeeetle the worse for wear ;) (those via evilbay for six quid the pair) :cool:

    I agree with @neilly, the EKA and other security information is (or should be) free of charge from any LR main dealer. I couldn't possibly comment on what your local Land Rover "specialist" might charge you.
    In most cases, you just rock up at the main dealer clutching proof of ownership, the V5 usually and the just call it up on their desktop PC. Simples.

    Ah, hadn't heard of them referred to like that before :D

    Given I was also quoted well over two and a half hundred quid for a replacement keyfob and programming from a main dealer not too far from here (who will remain nameless, in the event I actually have to use the place in the future!), I dare say this one charges for everything. I already have two keys, so no problem there anyhow. Well, I've got it (EKA code) now, so no worries.

    Nipped out, dumped a load of crap at the council tip - I mean "Recycling centre"! - then went to the storage to get something, and found the tailgate door playing silly wossits and not unlocking from the outside (lock mechanism's only a year old). Poss stuck latch, by this time lost the light, so I'll do that in the works shed after my shift tomorrow. Probably a GT-85 and hammer fix :)
