    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.

  3. 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...

    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
  12. 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...
  13. 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...

    Why would you think that?

    I honestly don't know, but don't see the relevance between diff and wheel alignment either?

  20. 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.

    Where are you based? If in Pta area, take it to Mikebob on the forum. He knows his landies.

    Otherwise, get it to someone who can read error codes.

    I think it might be your crank position...

    Being a new dad myself, I can forewarn you that space is a major issue. I find me 5 door Freelander 2 lacking in space, I'd hate to think what life would be in a Jimny.
