The only place for a coil spring is up Zebedee's arse

Many thanks for all your responses but out of the four remaining in England I'm surprised between all of us we only know the location of one and don't have any leads on two whatsoever. I'd be keen to hear more about the one in the Midlands. What counts as 'a lot' of money.

Out of the 5 UK Linleys how many remain and apart from the Dunsfold one where are they?

After 15 years I'm still learning about my P38. I'd always presumed my bump stops were bolted on and had always dreaded the thought of the day of unscrewing a rusted, seized in bolt. Well that day finally came today when replacing my airbags for the second time during my ownership. I finally bit the built and attempted to remove one only to find they just push on, how simple. In my enthusiasm I ripped the remains off with the thought "they can't be much more than a few £s for a set of 4" How I was wrong, £10 + each, come on LR even for you that seems steep. Are the aftermarket ones any good, what do you recommend and where from? Are they generic to any other model / manufacturer?

Many thanks, so you recommend the same battery for both petrol and diesel. I'll also get one ordered.

Same question, but which battery should I get for my 2.5dse?

Dear All, I was wondering if someone could give me an in-depth guide and parts required to fitting a non return valve into my Diesel fuel system. When I leave my car standing for a while I'm struggling to start it. Good battery, new glow plugs but just not firing up. I've heard it mentioned before about doing this mod. Many thanks.

Many thanks, plugs seems to be most popular answer, I'll have the lambda sensors checked. Lots of people mention exhaust (I have a second hand stainless one which ultimately needs putting on). It does have LPG but tank is empty and never used. Better on gas or not?

My 4.6 petrol gems has just failed it's MOT. Main issue - Exhaust carbon monoxide content after 2nd fast idle exceeds default limits ( (b)) The exhaust is in poor condition and been patched and bodged all over but apparently not leaking. Car not driven for a year. Where should I start? Cheap fixes first please.

How much did it go up to? I was outbid at £650.

Years ago I questioned if only 20 out of the 100 UK H&Hs had TVs. Since then I've been building a register. As of today I believe I've tracked all 20 down. (I've based my evidence on the correct VHS players in the centre console, correct TVs with leather surrounds and correct remote controls and headphones) not aftermarket systems. On my register I've only located 31 H&H in total. So I still question the '20' figure. I've cross checked my vehicals with their original registration date, mileages etc etc. If you have one with TVs feel free to private message and I'll see what information I have on yours.

It looks like Lancashire Sports and Performance has started up again as 'V8 Vault'. He's got a new listing on Piston Heads of a Vogue 50 using generic photos.

Dear All, My Lightstone leather is worn on my steering wheel and needs 'dying'. I have spoken with Furniture Clinic who say I need a colour code? They think it may be 'SMK'? Has anyone else purchased a kit and who from? What colour code did you use? What was the end result and has it lasted?

I've owned my trusty diesel for many years, 125k on the clock, full history etc etc Its never been a great starter and I always have to wait the full cycle for the glow plugs before even attempting to start, I always thought this was just the way they are. I've got a hot start kit, replaced the glow plugs every few years, had the injectors reconditioned etc. Anyway went to look at a £400 spares or repair high mileage abused wreck with well over 200k on clock, and overheating problem. Anyway it stated like a dream every time, no need for glow plug light to go out it just started and even sounded better than mine. Why's this wreck starting so much better than mine? What would you guys suggest I replaced first?

I leave mine permanently locked in motorway mode. I find this a happy compromise, better for getting in and out and I prefer the handling at low speed, I also prefer the way it looks when parked up. Driven it like this for 40k with no problems.

I can't tell a lie it was me, I read the post, thought that's good value and I always need some and pressed BIN (I didn't realise they were the last available) JMC send me a private message with your address and I'll pop one in the post for you.

Marty, Many thanks but the early Diversity radios only have 1-6 options for the code. I've been searching high and low for people who can generate the number and only found 2 who charge £20. (Ironically the number you supplied me was only 3 away from what the last owner thought the code was). Being a typical RR owner I'm reluctant to pay £20 for a code.

Again many thanks but I know the radio works fine by pressing and holding the BND button then switching it on. Radio works fine for 5 minutes in 'test mode'. My screen has gone but Clarion can't replace these either and the AUX cable I can do myself for pennies. So it just comes down to the code. I've signed up to that instant radio code website, handed out all my details to the entire world and the no code in return. I think many of these radios have been binned simply due to bad screens.

Thanks for trying Brian, I'd be keen to hear if anyone else has the correct software or knows where to buy it from.

This is the correct code for another Diversity Radio I have.
Serial: CR0154S0007364
Code: 3144

Sadly this isn't the original radio and the code supplied appears incorrect.
