      HI Gav, Just tried sending you another private message but the forum said you'd exceeded your quota.

      Thanks for the reply. So is it just a case of bolting the FBH in the engine bay, connecting the existing wiring (is the wiring plug the same on the Rover 75/TD4 Webasto heater as on the TD5?), plumb it into the cooling system (where did you run the pipes to?), plumb in the fuel feed (does the tank need to be removed to connect to the blank nipple?) and then it's good to go? Presumably if it's got the preheater switch then it doesn't need activating in the body control unit or anything?

      Hi, Gav i have been reading some old threads (4.0 engine) on one of the threads you mentioned that you have a engine block which may just need re-ringing, did you sell this item, if no, how much will you take for it. Colin from hull (eddymerchx@aol.com)

      Have a 2004 Range Rover diesel which I drive 2 kms to work each day, 6 days a week in day light. have interior lights turned of. At least once a week have to charge or jump start. I do drive it quitely when cold but never had the issue with my previous V/8. Several battery changes etc, charge rate checked. Only conclusion I can think of is alternator RPM is too low at lower engine RPM. Has any one else experienced a similiar problem.

      HI, someone on the forum thought that you might be able to help me out?
      I have a '92 RRC 3.9 with a gas kit. After a recent trip to the garage for a bit of work, the gas is all over the place.I need to understand the connections (hoses) to the vaporiser and where they come from and go to etc. I think that there is something screwey going on. Any advice would be really appreciated?
      Thanks for your help,

      Thanks for the info Gav, the front passenger door has now seemed to have fixed itself and is working ok, but the rear door is still locked. The child lock is also on so i cant open it from inside the car either, so don't know how any garage would be able to fix it either as you can't remove the door card.

      Hiya Gav,just to up date you on my door lock problem.I've stripped out the lock mech,cleaned it up,even sprayed the electrics with contact cleaner.Put it all back together,no joy,but I did notice broken strands on the interior door latch to lock, steel braids that sit inside the cable liner.Im guessing this could be snagging and not releasing the latch properly,just to be on the safe side though i'm looking for a second hand door mech and cable, but I will keep you informed.Anyway your a ****ing hero mate for doing those door locks[worst 2 hours of my life what a bastard of a job[you need fingers like E.T.] Anyway thanks again.

      Hi mate.
      I was reading a post that you commented on and you may be able to help me!

      Both my cats have gone on my p38 (out of the flap!) but it runs on LPG.

      What more advice do you have on replacing the cat with a straight pipe.

      I know its possible, I am wonding what size pipe? and what about the lambar senses...do they go or stay?

      Hi, Gav you have mentioned on the forum that you have worked on the door lock and switch, is it possible to test the switch and put the eka code in by pressing the switch before i replace it in the door

      Thanks for your help with my electrics. I will try to find a procedure to sort this SRS light and keep you informed if I come up with anything.
      Part of this is avoiding Main Dealer costs, and part of it is learning about the vehicle, and enjoying fixing it yourself !!
      Best regards.
