    Default Help...

    I am stuck out near Jozini....I just blew the turbo on my Puma.

    Contact numbers on suppliers, as well as the part numbers would be great.

    Phones Turbo-exchange and they need the part number in order to help... I am donkeying along to get to a garage currently.

    Maybe have to strip out the turbo core for now. Any ideas?

    This cant put a damper on my first planned diving weekend...

    Shemula, if he can get to Pongola there would be better chances on obtaining the correct part and having the vehicle inspected. How far are you from Pongola?

    On my way to Shimula...

    Part numbers?

    Google gives me a number 752610-0025 for a Garret turbo, but I have no way of knowing if this is correct at this point...

    Hi Nico. Spoke to Werner just now. He is on the Kozi Bay side about 45km from me, to get to Pongola he will have to cross over the Jozini mountain pass and with no turbo it could be a problem. I suggested he comes to my place and we can arrange something with Andre Sckeepers of Manguzi to check the vehicle. Andre is a guy who refuses to work on any other vehicles but Landies. He is still mobile but very slow, and his family can at least relaxe while we sort the vehicle.

    Werner are you sure it is the Turbo and not a booster pipe? One of my booster pipes going in/or out of the inter cooler had a hole in it from rubbing against a bolt. Check this first before you get a new Turbo. It makes a rather loud whistle when this happens. Just my 2c.

    Regards

    That looks good.

    Good advice. Also from where he is he can make it to St Lucia or even Richards bay without many hills if he has to.

    Maybe he should post the Pumas year model so that somebody that knows the car can advise on probable turbo model no and know issues.

    Seems to be a sensor that is giving trouble. I am not a fundi but the turbo seems to be okay. It works and then stops and then starts working again. If it stops working and he switches the motor off and restarts it works again and it does not make any suspicious noise.
    Werner has decided to push on to Malongane.
    Should anyone have exsperience of this let us know it is a puma 2.4, 2009, 130.

    Reset the inertia switch under the bonnet close to the fire wall. That's where mine is located.

    My hazards came on after driving on a severely corrugated road and when I discussed it with the mechanic at CMH Land Rover, Menlyn he asked whether I experienced a power loss as well. He reset the button for me and showed me where it was so that I can do it myself if it happen again. He also said that if it happen again he will replace the switch under warranty.

    Seems that it may be a problem thing and I am not sure whether it may have a performance influence but it may be worth a try.

    Interesting.

    When at the Gariep GTG we went through a bump on a gravel road and the hazards came on as well.
    Did not notice any power loss as was traveling slowly.
    I checked all the fuses and rely's and eventually just started her again and drove of.
    The hazards just whent off again.

    Sorry for the OT post...

    Agree that it goes away when switching off and starting the engine again but the problem is till there with the "popped" switch. It will recur so much easier if you do not reset the switch..........apparently!!!

    Can any of you perhaps tell where this switch is exactly, how it looks, pic perhaps. How to reset. It will help all of us.

    This is what the inertia switch looks like and position no. 8 in the diagram is where mine is mounted. Behind the engine against the firewall neaarly in the middle. The rubber cap protects the switch.

    Google "Land Rover Inertia switch". There you will see that not only defenders have it, and that it is mounted in many different locations.
