    Ran a bead of sealant into the joins on the hardtop. Hopefully that was the source of the watermarks on the boot trim.

    Think ive got a broken IRD :censored:
    just happened all of a sudden, i already have the rear prop removed ( was like it when i brought it and has driven faultlesly for the 8 months of use) but i pulled into a layby to let some one pass and all of a sudden that horrible gear grinding noise, more consistant on the over run. Got it home and thats where it stays.
    Now the question is....do i get it fixed? Got quotes around the 1000 mark
    ive just put on 4 new tyres, front calipers, discs and pads, full filter kit and oil
    Does it ever end? lol

    that was my thought too but I'm struggling to find the bushes - could you point me at any? Tried Powerflex but they said they don't do them despite that I see Nodge68 found the right bush here

    to get back on-thread, tried to remove the front CV joint from the prop shaft with out taking the prop shaft off. Getting the bolts off was no problem but I failed to get the CV joint casing open :(
    Will have to take prop shaft off to service the CV joint :(

    Cheers

    Fitted a ronbox synergy 2a to my 2003 td4 freelander today. Cant believe the difference! Its a different vehicle and i wish i did it years ago. Anyone thinking about getting one shouldnt delay, easy to fit(took me about 1/2 hour) and well worth getting. Got it set to setting 3 with the original bosch maf. No smoke, tons of poke and fuel economy is noticably different already

    Fitted a dual USB charger socket on the left side of the instrument binnacle, and a standard 12v aux socket on the right.

    Hi divvy
    Just reading about you picking up your thermostat bypass kit, I want one for my td4 but unsure of which one, is that the one you cut into the top hose ? Where did you get yours from? Cheers

    At the moment they are fed from the ignition live on the fuse panel (through an inline fuse). There's a handy wire route almost straight down to the fuse panel.

    Just had to remove the top of the cowl, there are two moulding webs either side that the sockets fit between, and the sockets have backing nuts to secure them.
