Not a problem here.

I'd forgotten that he blamed me in the first post!

Like that.

Really must do something about the non-existent ICE in mine one day.

Still putting that out on public forums? :-)

I have the same interior and the panels are black, so not much use to you, I'm afraid. However, if you'd like to pop you spare set in the post (sorry, joking, courier) , I'll happily transfer some beer tokens.

Mine are knackered!

Whoops, seem to have missed the boat, if she sailed.

I'm always up and doing in the early mornings anyway.

Before you all rush out and update to the latest release, hang fire a moment.

I seem to remember writing on here that I'd found the touchscreen much more responsive after an earlier update, now I have the opposite problem.

Upgraded to release 1.34 (corrected from 1.35 - that's in the future!) and the bottom half of the screen was a pig to use, but the top was fine. The new update gives you the opportunity to rotate the screen 180 degrees, so the cables on the right side for LHD vehicles, I forgot to click this option initially.

Writing on the BB forum, I was advised to reload again, also clicking the kernal overwrite option, so I did that and the 180. I was also told that I'd need to input my activation codes again. It never asked for those afterwards.

Now only the bottom left of the screen accepts any inputs, which ain't a lot of use.

I'm guessing I'll be told it's a hardware fault, but it does seem coincidental...

But I'll wait for a response from BB and take it from there.

Hold off the upgrade until I get to the bottom of this.

Of course, the '38 has thrown an alarm fault that I now cannot clear!

To bring this up to date...

I downloaded yet another update, having deleted the earlier ones from the laptop. I must have then run the update seven or eight times. Each time, I got a little more screen functionality.

Eventually I got to the page to input the unlock codes but...Every time I went to cancel the "?" and input the code, the CANC button would delete one then remain highlighted so I couldn't delete any more.

I slung it in the corner in disgust until this morning, when I brought it to the office to have another bash.

Plugged it in and all works perfectly, codes accepted without issue. I'll plug it into the vehicle when I get home and hopefully clear that alarm fault, but looking good so far.

If you have similar issues with v1.34, then persistence is the key to success!

I'm safe...

Oh, and thanks a lot for the info 😊

Final update - hopefully...

Plugged it into the '38 this morning and have full functionality. Happy with that.

Given my Customs sage over replacement brake hoses, I wasn't looking forward to returning it for repair!

Okay, so way back when, I decided to replace the prop UJs as I was getting a bit of vibration on acceleration.

For some reason that escapes me now, I did 3 of the 4 before having to refit the shafts and use the vehicle. So the vibration, whilst better, was still there. This weekend, I dived underneath again to replace the last one, the back one on the rear prop.

It was pretty goosed, with plenty of slop, so in went the new one. Greased all the others and the prop slides whilst I was there. Job done.

Vibration still there. Damn!

It only happens under two circumstances, hard acceleration and on the overrun at anything above 80kph. It’ll run up steadily to speed without a murmur, it’s only when you boot it. The rest of the time, it’s a smooth as silk.

Any bright ideas?

The three UJs I replaced earlier will only have done a couple of thousand kms, if that and no, they aren’t Britpart!

I was pointed towards bushes on another site. Could have a point, they're likely to be 23 years old!

When I had the gearbox cross member off, I never thought to look, but I was too busy fitting up my new shiny stainless front pipes, and, of course, didn't have the vibration then!

So it'll be back under this weekend for a look-see.

My mate's boss doesn't believe in changing oil in vehicles. So far over the last few years he has killed at least 5 vans I know of due to the oil having the consistency of tar when its cold, another one died when the timing chain finally snapped after he was told for nearly 6 months it needed attention as it sounded like a bag of spanners in a cement mixer when running, and hes on the way to finishing off another 2 at the minute.

Hes also got a p38 that is now off the road as he kept driving it when it was overheating.

He's not Asian is he? That sounds just like a Philippine maintenance programme!

Goodridge do both early and late hoses, although they don't see to know it, so make sure you get the correct set.

Know that part of the world well from my days as a boy working Manchester Metrolink!

These guys seem to get good reviews for their kit.

Up until yesterday, all was well in Range Rover land. Then the rev counter decided it was hooked up to a screaming multi - cylinder Japanese two stroke.

Not quite, but it overreads by almost 1000rpm. So on tickover it sits at 1750-1800. When driving, it pops up and down with the gearchanges but always +1000.

When I switch off, it drops to 1000, sits twitching for a few minutes, then drops to zero.

Left it overnight to see if it would just disappear, like you do, but no, same this morning.

Before I go wailing into things, any bright ideas, guys?

So Mr. Dyson sees a huge market in the far east? Of the three countries I have the most experience of, not one of them has a reliable power source, with failures and blackouts bring regular occurrences.

Although could a half charged Dyson backfeed into the house? Then it may be of some use!

Thanks, Richard.

I'll be giving that a go in the morning.
