      Hi , Could you recommend a knowlegable and trustworthy mechanic to work on my 2005 TD4 Freelander? I live in Bangor and chatted to you a few years ago about my 1.8 Freelander. Just bought it yesterday in Wales and want to sort a few bits and pieces. Thanks, Ciarz

      In N.I. the MOT centres are run and standardised by DVTA, as far as I'm aware.....a FL1 will fail in 2wd.
      I asked an inspector during an MOT,, would he pass a FL in 2wd?

      He replied "I would fail the vehicle, as it wouldn't be presented as it was designed"

      There are troopers on UK mainland that have passed their MOT in 2wd, all down to the discretion of the garage doing the test.

      Do you mean the lower tie bar?
      Depends where the rubber has perished, tends to happen under load, uphill.
      Towing would lift the front end on acceleration, so I guess that's your prob.
      I have a thread on completely modified engine bushes 'k-series' engine mounts

      That is Scrabo Hill, Co Down, set amongst some of the richest agricultural land, walk to the summit at the end of summer and view a patchwork quilt of the drumlins of Co. Down, formed by the last retreating glaciers.
      Not to mention views out over Strangford Lough.

      Come and have a look see, life's too short not to!
