    Checked the video again and I would have had a concern around what the grassy middel mannetjies may hide otherwise looks great drive. Where did you sleep over Mountainboy ?

    Easy.... the ability/stubbornness/ignorance of the moer that holds the steering wheel seriously lets down a good vehicle

    I remember reading how a corsa bakkie went and had to pulled through the rougher bits, but it made it

    I had no issues, although I have approx 240 mm clearance (spacers, bigger tyres)

    Did it solo and never felt unsafe, but then again, I did the Cederberg solo on a vespa scooter yrs back, so my definition of unsafe might not be many's

    Left CT the morning, started Biedouw (spell??) Valley side late morning and arrived at The Mond at about 6.30 ish where I slept in the car for the night - great fun!

    No, he really told to sod off?! What a knob, be deserved to get stuck then!

    And his even a bigger knob for getting stuck in a vehicle that simply excels in sand

    When it comes to the terrain response settings, he was definitely stuck in knob mode

    Morning all

    I am looking to buy a 2nd hand AC Compressor for my Freelander 2 i6.

    The compressor needs to be replaced and I am not willing to pay the dealership price for a new one.

    Part number LR020193.

    Could anyone please assist?

    I am in the Nelspruit area.

    Thanks

    If you don't come right there is a place (also has a website) that specialises in aircon spares/parts, one of the few places in Sa, look on the Toureg thread and drop Stephan Van Tonder a pm he knows where it is. Apparently they supply all the agents or dealers or whatever the case is and their prices are way below dealer price.

    Iím guessing itís making a noise like most do. Get someone to put some pag oil into the system. Often this cures the noise. A new aftermarket compressor can be had for around 7k when I last checked
