    It started as a waterpump but has ended with timing belt and crank/cam seal replacement along with a few hoses/belts/thermostat as I had everything off I might as well change it!

    Tried to remove the steering wheel to clear the way for swapping out the indicator switch that is on order - seized on the splines solid, no amount of large hammer, PlusGas and swearing will shift it.

    Have bought a dedicated puller tool to see if it will surrender later in the week….every little thing fights me all the way.

    Now very close to throwing all the spares from the garage in the back of this thing and dumping it


    Grrrrrrr

    It never ceases to amaze me the Defender :rolleyes:. Just how can such a vehicle be so sought after and highly priced when there's so many things that go wrong with them. I remember replacing the indicator stalk on a few of my previous trucks...joy.

    My 15 year old 170k miles F2 indicator stalk will probably last as long as the car itself.....strange don't you think? :D

    Always leave the nut in a few threads as if the wheel comes off it attacks you like a rabid frisbee

    have you tried the knee pushing behind the wheel & soft mallet to the nut… steering wheel nut… unless you miss

    It’s the power that goes through the stalk :rolleyes: clean the contacts if they aren’t worn out

    Because owners treat them like **** and fail to maintain them properly + most have no idea just what high maintenance buses LR's are. Then they wonder why everything's rusty and/or covered in **** with every component seized...o_O

    You should not need a large hammer. What type of steering wheel puller are you using? With plusgas, a little heat and a proper flat plate puller left under tension the wheel should pull straight off...it's only a simple spline ;)

    @slomofo , that should do it. Give it a couple of nights of plusgas or diluted citric acid

    In my head
    One of those worked on my four spoke which hadn't been taken off in years and was very seized.
    Lots of release spray beforehand and tighten the bolts on each side slowly and evenly until seated flush then slowly tighten the big bolt. Mine groaned as I tightened it and looked like it might bend the bar but then it suddenly released.
    I cleaned the threads and smeared some grease on before replacing the wheel; the securing nut should be tight, doesn't have to be hernia tight.

    Unlike other things where you can suggest it's a love or hate relationship , owning a landy is a love AND hate relationship

    The doris rolls her eyes a bit every time I say I'm just going to do "whatever" to either the 90 or Buttercup, but there again when was the last time we broke down? can't remember the exact date but it was sometime in the 90's when my Volvo managed to rip the prop shaft in two when pulling out of a junction.
