Yes, it's held on with 4 bolts.
Never mind you have to take whole seat and frame apart lol.
Out for a test drive now.

Much better.
Not sitting twisted anymore.

One of the problems along with worn foam is the paper covered nylon stringers. The have become detached from the end bits meaning the seat loses support.

sounds pretty similar in terms of location, obviously no intercooler, but its in the same gap between the condenser and rad.

The v8 has its gearbox cooler mounted below the oil cooler, but i think the diesels have the gearbox cooler elsewhere as the intercooler sits there instead.

Autobox cooler sits under bumper in front of the left front tyre. Also a bitch to do.

You've just confirmed what I was thinking and no, they weren't just going to do it, they actually did do it so God knows how much pressure I've got in there now. When they told me it wasn't holding pressure the first thing I said was that the pressure on the high side would be dropping as it cooled down and the high and low sides equalised but they insisted that the only way the pressure could drop would be if there was a leak. But, at least it is still working, I was concerned that I'd go in with a working, albeit not as well as it could, and come out with an empty and not working system. I found it hard to believe it has a leak as it has been working fine for at least 2, if not 3, years.

It isn't just UK, it's an EU thing, you can no longer buy R134a to refill yourself. You used to be able to get a can of the stuff and a hose to fill with, now all you can buy is the hose. I've got one from when you could buy the gas and one to fit older systems that used R12 (but I can't get that now either). I've found a supplier in Italy that internittently, and illegally, will sell 500g cans for export only but no regular supplier.

Indeed you would. I would rather it be done right too.

Indeed, I'm one of the banned ones.

Mine has an aftermarket charging system with genuine lr voltage sensitive split charge relay near the battery.


A bit odd but works.

I'm glad the wayback machine is working.
I had a page open in a tab for replacing the scuttle foam. It went the rr.net forum. Ffs

And just another thing. Just about every website now is "optimized" for mobile devices. No thought whatsoever for the many folk who use a PC still.
It looks shite and wastes so much screen space.

Blimey, talk about communism

Here are a few tips and pointers that we hope will help give you the best possible experience participating in this online community.

LOOK BEFORE YOU ASK: These forums are intended to complement the main site http://rangerovers.net. Before you ask a question, you should SEARCH through the main site, as well as previous forum posts, to avoid repeated questions about the same issues. Especially check the sections of the site covering common problems and fixes, maintenance and repair details, outfitting and upgrades. If you have posted please refrain from "bumping" your topic. Give members a chance to respond. "Bumps" will be deleted as seen by mods.

AVATARS: Please keep your avatars tasteful and appropriate. We reserve the right to delete any that are obscene or tasteless.

SIGNATURES: Please add your Range Rover's model year, model, and engine info to your signature. This helps provide answers and information specific to your individual Range Rover's technical specifications.

LOCATION: It really helps if you add a real location to your profile. Many answers can vary according to your market and regional laws, especially if you are asking a technical or buying related question.

PLEASE AVOID PROFANITY. Any posts including insulting or profane language will be arbitrarily edited or deleted without apology and without warning. Offenders may also have their accounts deactivated at a moderators discretion.

AVOID ALL CAP POSTING. There is never a need to post with caps lock on. Same with bolding large sections of type or jumping between fonts. It only makes a post difficult to read.

SALE ITEMS. The technical forums are not intended as a venue for free advertising. Please confine any personal sales to the Classified sections.

COMMERCIAL VENDORS. News about new products is always appreciated, but if your post is to advertise your products or skills to the Rangerovers.net community, then please contact the sales team in advance for assistance.

HELP KEEP THE SITE UP TO DATE: Please help keep the main site updated with the developments reported in forum posts, so future Range Rover owners can find the information organized in a logical and concise manner on one page rather than searching through numerous old forum threads. To this end, if you contribute or see a thread containing a significant new procedure, device, repair method, news item or upgrade for a Range Rover, please alert me (pm or email) so we can convert the information to a new page, or add it to an existing page. If you have time to help construct new pages, your assistance would be greatly appreciated!

SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS WHEN POSSIBLE: If you can't help with time, help by supporting the site sponsors whenever you can. Accessing them via this site lets them know you came from this community, and in turn encourages them to support us and help keep the site going.

Best one is the copyright. Idiots

06 August 2019 - 22:32

I don't think you know what I mean.
I resizes,yes, but it's the wasted space.
Imagine a mobile display running on a pc.
My pc is full HD. There's about 6 lines of topics. Should be about 20 on one screen.

Steering wheel will always be out. It moves depending on ride height (assuming still on air)
You can have it square in one ride height :)

07 August 2019 - 19:16

A lot better than the other place. Still rather large though :)
Very easy to read though as there is no crap every other post

07 August 2019 - 20:48

Indeed, same as mine.
Just pointing out it will never be perfect.

A bit like all rr lol

I had a fun couple of hours yesterday changing the water pump on my P38.
It started leaking after I flushed it last week, not surprising considering the shit that came out of the radiator when I first got it.
There was a coppery looking paste coming out. AFAIK thats a stop leak product.

You can see the shit in the gap for the o-ring.

Its also been replaced with a pump with a metal impeller.
