Noticed last night i got a leak... then woke up to lots of pas fluid on the floor, luckly my mate had given me a 2nd hand replacement , bastard 8mms hidden in narrow gap, and they look like never been undone so as i needed it for work and was enough give in the pipes so just cabled the replacement.

  

You've been putting the hours in with the Mondy lately. My PAS pipes are rusty (the ones that run along the side of the subframe) and need sorting this year before this happens to me.


I must love this motor..........for now

Fixed the 806 yesterday 240 mile round trip got me a replacement tailgate and a couple of rear side loading doors. It is now water tight again, which is more than can be said for the fucking Horizon. I had a couple of rally guys rang up about it last night so maybe the old heap will get turned in to a full blown rally car. Seems a bit daft to me as they weren't really much good back in the day, but hey ho if he pays the money it's up to him.

I really must move the bin or I will go and do it again I bet. The side doors can wait for now as they are a right faff to fit.

I was idly rifling through the latest entries on Trademe late last night, when lo and behold, I saw this beauty, selling locally for $2k (£1150-ish, nowadays)

 

31879244220_fae7b1af5e_b.jpg

 

31879242650_591c4b11c6_b.jpg

 

Now, there's only the two of us, so I don't need the 8 seats and I certainly don't need a third blue wagon with a tow bar but it's a flipping CX, so I spent a relatively sleepless night waiting for it to be early enough to call the seller. Come 9 am, contact was made and I was on his doorstep for 10 sharp, only to hear him on the phone sealing the deal with its new buyer. Bugger.

 

The seller was very apologetic and let me take a closer look round it, which was ace, as it became apparent very quickly that my notions of bagging a mint CX wag to sell on at a nice fat profit down the line were dashed, as it was well used inside and there was a fair wodge of rust under the rearmost side windows. Mechanically, it was no doubt in fine fettle and it sported a nice set of Michelins but cosmetically, it was quite challenged. The seller is from the south island, is flying up and then driving it back the 1000km or so, plus the ferry hop between isles. I reckon that little lot won't see much change from $1000, so I hope they're happy with it!

There are many more pages of pics with codes on but we had a quick look at the wheel sensor and it's looks loose, when we put the wheel back on to get it out the workshop the lights all went out for 5 mins.

It's only £20.04 for a new one. Hopefully you don't need to piss about taking the bearing out and what not to change it.

It is the inner face. These 17 inch wheels have never been on my car, they are the ones I got to replace the BBS 15 inch to try and improve the look.

Told you they were rubbish!

I really must get MrsN's Freelander2 scanned. The current tally of electrical woes is; alternator light permantly on for last 18 months, half of windscreen( driver's side naturally) not working, both heated seats not working and hasn't locked or unlocked for about a year. Occaisionaly, about once every 6 months it goes into limp mode , turn it off and back on again and it's right as rain.
You've got to love Land Rover ( Ford?) electrics.

2. My camera phone is shagged; at the moment the photos I've shown you are more or less all I've got
3. It's coming back briefly to go off to another place to have the autobox done and it'll be in the dark

I can confirm that it's not. It may be a private plate though, some of the early service history has a different plate on it. Both equally nondescript, so someone's wasted their money at some point!

It's been snowing slightly here, the hills at the top end of the valley have a light dusting of snow, so I'm sure that by now the local Spar has been stripped of bread and milk. I did briefly consider moving the Land Rover so that it's at the front of the drive in case it snows more; then I remembered that I do not need, or want to go anywhere so potential snow chaos crisis averted.

 

If there's still snow up the top tomorrow I'll take the dogs up there, as the pups have not experienced snow yet.
