    Clutch & Gearbox woes

    Sooo The thrust bearing on the clutch is noisy first thing in the morning, or when I start driving after it's been sat a while. I try and minimise where it would be an issue, but it's still quite noisy and is getting more and more frequent. Noisy when the clutch is pressed in and holding the...

    Discovery II & Kenwood TM D710e Radio Install

    Hiya Well. With my previous vehicles I have had a semi-permanent installation, only removing them when the vehicle has left me. My FT8800 (second hand when I picked up my M6 licence) survived 3 cars; but with the arrival of Rose, my D2 XS, I decided on another radio. My 2e0 licence allows me up...

    Transmission Type

    Hiya Folks Well, my background is that I'm on my 3rd LR right now, which is a V8 with automatic transmission (gearbox). The previous two had manual 'boxes. I learnt to drive on a manual (1992) and up until 2 years ago I rarely drove an auto, large or small. But things change. The company I...

    Landrover Ham & GPS Setup *Pics*

    My current vehicle is a 1998 Land Rover Defender 90 V8 Auto. I’m a bit limited on what I can install and where and it needs to be temporary in nature.
