    Try Pon Steyn, in Somerset West. They rebuild a lot of Defenders, maybe they can source the parts for you.

    Defender Re: Landy wave

    I wave at all LRs which have low range, whether I'm driving my Puma or Sport.

    But being in Stellies, it often results in the tannies in their shiny D4/D5/RR/RRS giving me a dirty look ;D

    Defender Re: Engine & TC Lights on

    Sean, have you checked the error codes?

    With the TC light on, I'd start by checking the wheel sensors, they can get dirty and then the ABS/TC unit is unable to get a reading of the wheel speeds.

    Yes, the 2.0 is in the DS/Evoque, but I think it's also offered on the D5 (maybe not in ZA).

    just head over to the DS forum and do a search on oil dilution: https://www.discosportforums.co.uk/

  28. Re: Show us what you’ve done with your New Discovery (5)

    Bruce, that screenshot refers to how close the DPF is to the engine - the closer it is, the less likely you will get failed/partial regenerations, and thus less likelihood of oil dilution.
