    Freelander II Re: Freelander 2 judder

    Google it, there is a procedure you can follow. Something like turn ignition on, hold brake pedal, press something, I can't recall off the top of my head.

    But generally speaking, mine also shunted...

    Re: Which allround Softroader

    I think the Fl2 is as capable as a softie can be. And this is based on what I have heard, seen and experienced. I can't comment on sand driving, I haven't done it, but also have been assured that it...

    Freelander II Re: Freelander 2 judder

    Why don't you make it the dealers issue? Or was it a cash buy. Whereabouts are you located?

    Re: Which allround Softroader

    I've never heard of the gearbox overheating. Was it your Fl2? Was it perhaps a mechanical problem that the gearbox overheated. Maybe it needed a gearbox flush. I'm genuinely interested in this...
  6. Poll: Re: What do you feel more comfortable with, newer car, or an easier to fix car?

    Another aspect to consider. Safety of occupants in the vehicle.
  7. Poll: Re: What do you feel more comfortable with, newer car, or an easier to fix car?

    A brand new defender with warranty. All my issues addressed then [emoji16]

    Realistically though, I'm all for the newer version and praying it doesn't break down.

    Re: Which allround Softroader

    I would disagree. Just saw a video on FB where a Fl2 went up gert se Klip. Also, I've taken mine a bit Offroad, and it is quite capable.

    Saying that, it is not a diff lock lowrange 4x4, so use it...

    Chances are your pump is buggered. Best bet would be to contact Mikebob like someone already stated.

    And parking in front of your gate so you can't enter or exit.
  11. Re: what is being moved from primrose/knights?

    So think logically a bit, well anyway, that's how I came to my conclusion.

    1) It looked like they were refrigerated trucks.
    2) Lots of money to pull a stunt like this, for at best some publicity,...
  12. Re: what is being moved from primrose/knights?

    I was also stuck in that mess. I believe they even had police escorts. I don't really buy the story that it was for their birthday. Me thinks some vaccines were in there and the birthday thing was a...

    Re: Aircon not working (2.2 xl auto 2016)

    You should not have had them refill it unless you already discussed this with the dealer. Dealer will now say it was damaged by the people refilling it.

    Let's hope they don't.

  15. Re: Is my new Toyota genuinely new or repaired?

    Just reading this thread shows me that we often times settle for sub par workmanship.

    Mine was actually not due to anyone over tightening it. It was explained that they are different metals and this happens due to heating and cooling. They did however use a torque wrench to put it...

    Re: Changing a wheel

    I also struggled with the wheel bolts on the BMW last weekend. Ended up having to take it to a tyre shop to replace brake pads. I had a torque wrench that I borrowed, but was scared I'd break the...

    Re: Is this the Jeremy Clarkson Lancia ?

    If you watch the video you can see the hinges where the corrugated doors were fitted. I would assume after production they sorta put things back and sold it or gave it away.

    Why don't you start with the crank position sensor, it should be the cheapest as well
  24. Re: Freelander 2: black smoke when accelerating

    Eish, you got ripped off IMO.

    Black smoke is usually caused by unburnt diesel, or overfueling which leads to unburnt diesel. Now, in the Freelander I would have looked at boost pipes first, as...
  25. Re: Freelander 2 : Wheel alignment if diff changed

    OK, full story makes more sense. I have had it as well where new tires went super fast due to it being badly aligned. By super fast I also mean about 2000km or so if I recall correctly.

    I do feel...
  26. Re: Freelander 2 : Wheel alignment if diff changed

    Why would you think that?

    I honestly don't know, but don't see the relevance between diff and wheel alignment either?
  27. Re: March Difflock vs Traction Control brekkie Run

    Sure, but it's also nice to reflect on the individual vehicles. For example, that little orange subara always impress me. As for the Volvo's, I've had numerous discussions with xc90 about the...

    They are and they aren't.

    So basically what they do is they sell some cars and won't give you vehicle finance. They will assist you in getting a loan, but its sort of like a personal loan, and not...

    Is that a Cherokee? I didn't know they came with diff lock and low range.

    Although I think softies can do some rock climbing(limited, small things if you know what I mean) , I have to agree with you here. Use your car fit for purpose, and a softie wasn't built to go rock...
  32. Re: March Difflock vs Traction Control brekkie Run

    Pity I couldn't make this weekend. Did Andre bring just the defender? It would have been nice to see a softy Landy go against the Volvo's and Subaru's, and well the diff lock guys.

    Glad you all...
