General

Q: Does drop arm AND KIT (QFW000020 & QFW000030) mean it comes with the ball joint kit ?

A: Yes it comes complete with the ball joint kit.

Q: Can the ES9000 Pro Comp bushes be replaced with polyurethane?

A: No, at present we do not offer polyurethane bushes suitable for Pro Comp ES9000 dampers. Pro Comp use a different shape bush to the standard LR ones. We may well offer a polyurethane version in the future. It's worth noting that ES3000 dampers that we sell for Series vehicles will accept regular 552819 bushes so the poyurethane version (552819P) are suitable.

Q: Do you stock any other lights suitable for fitting to this PM108/PM1039 lightbar?

A: We stock lots of lights suitable for this lightbar. Take a look at WIPAC in the brands section of this site. We would probably recommend the S6015. They fit great and they're stainless.

Q: What colour is the RTC3254 Hylomar 101 silicone sealant ?

A: It is Ivory White.

Q: How easy are Bench Seats to fit? Do i need to get access under the vehicle? What seat belts do you recommend and how easy are these to fit?

A: These seats are easy to fit. You can easily reach under the arch to fit without having to jack the vehicle or crawl underneath. The belts we would recommend would be SEC210 lap belts.

Q: Is the DA2244-90/110 jacking adaptor compatible with the Hi-Lift 4' jack?

A: Yes it is compatible with all 'Hi-Lift' brand jacks. Please note it is not compatible with other cheaper high lift style farm jacks.

Q: Does the PM732 Ground Anchor come with the six ground spikes that it shows in the picture?

A: Yes they are included.

Q: Do water pumps come with a gasket ?

A: Yes, all water pumps we sell come with their relevant gasket or O ring.

Q: Can I use a red and yellow optima battery in a dual battery system? Can I use the red for starting and the yellow as my deep cycle battery?

A: Yes that is exactly what you'd do.

Q: Do PM799 Cranked Rear Trailing Arms come with rubbers?

A: No as there are various options.... aftermarket, OEM, polyurethane. The part numbers to search are NTC1772 and NTC9027 (STC618).

Q: Is RTC8891AA Tow Ball type-aproved by EC and stamped?

A: Yes it is 'e-marked' and stamped with it's load capacity.

Q: How are brake pads supplied?

A: Brake pads are always supplied as a set of 4 pads to do a complete axle.

Q: Are your wheel spacers supplied with nuts?

A: Yes they come with the nuts required to fit the spacers to the vehicle. You use your existing wheel nuts to mount your wheels to the spacers.

Series 2 & 3

Q: Is there any difference between a lh and a rh front standard spring or why do you reference them separately.

A: Standard LR springs are handed. The right hand side is slightly heavier duty to the fuel tank (and in UK cases the driver!). However, most parabolic manufacturers do not differentiate between LH and RH.

Q: Do you do replacement bushes for the rear parabolic springs (PARA02 or PARA03)?

A: Yes we do. We've seen various manufacturers of parabolics and they've always used standard LR bushes for the rears. Part number is 548205. Take a look at your front paras. They may well also use 548205 (like our British made ones). Some of the Indian manufactured paras such as Britpart & Bearmach use a larger non LR bush on the fronts.

Q: Do you get 2 leather gaitors or 1 in 276954 Gaitor Kit?

A: You get 2. In other words the kit does both ends of the axle.

Q: Am I correct to believe that it is no longer possible to obtain the correct rear mud flaps for a LWB Series 2a (with fittings), genuine or otherwise, only the SWB variety?

A: Yes you are correct. However, the SWB variety fits perfectly as they fix to the rear crossmember (which is the same for SWB & LWB).

Q: Do the 2 seater bench seats fold up or are they fixed?

A: Yes they fold up.

Q: Are the deluxe and basic seats you sell Vinyl? Do you do leather?

A: Yes they are vinyl. Sorry we don't do leather.

Q: Do the defender type door mirrors for series land rovers come as a pair or as singles?

A: Defender door mirrors come as singles. They aren't handed, you simply turn the head around 180 degrees.

Defender

Q: Will PM109 & PM012 Dog Guards fit my 5 door Defender?

A: No. Both PM109 and PM012 are only suitable for 3 door vehicles that have a bulkhead behind the driver and passenger seats. If you have a 5 door safari vehicle you require STC7555 Dog Guard.

Q: Ref: PM109 Dog Guard. Do you also sell this Dog Guard in grey?

A: Yes we do. The part number of the grey version is PM012.

Q: Which bushes do we need for fitting PM067 Narrow Radius Arms? Can we buy in polyurethane?

A: The part numbers of the of the bushes you require for fitting a pair of these radius arms are NTC7307 x 4 (axle end) and NRC4514 x4 (chassis end). Yes you can buy in polyurethane. Simply search for the part number with a 'P' on the end.

Q: Reference PM018 Puma Bonnet. What is GRP?

A: GRP stands for Glass Reinforced Plastic.

Q: Can i mount DA4630 intercooler on a defender TD5 with AirCon ?

A: Yes it will fit all Defender TD5 - with or without aircon.

Q: Will these replace the rear indicators of my TD5 2000 ?

A: Yes they will. They are listed as front because as far as we are aware Land Rover haven't used clear indicators on the rear....but there's nothing to stop you!

Q: Do the bases of bench seats fold up against the backrest when not in use?

A: Yes they do.

Q: Hi, if I have to change the flange on the gearbox (Def 110 TD5) when use PM098?

A: They are 'weld on' parts.

Q: Do the DA7012 Defender 90 Side Runners - Tomb Raider Style come in pairs when you order them?

A: Yes they are supplied as pair.

Q: My 200 tdi Discovery is very difficult to change gear from 1st to 2nd or 3rd to 2nd. Why?

A: A common fault with these boxes is a thrust washer in the 1 - 2 synchro assembly splitting in half and blocking movement. Rebuild the gearbox and replace both thrust washers in the 1 - 2 assembly.

Q: What oil should I use in my LT77 gearbox?

A: We recommend ATF Dextron 2 or 3.

Q: My gearbox rattles on idle, in neutral, with the clutch up

A: This is very common on Diesel engined vehicles. The clutch friction plate has a ring of springs, which are there to soften the knock of the diesel engine to stop it being transmitted to the driveline. Often especially with a new clutch these springs are quite tight and a lot of the engine knock goes through to the gearbox and makes the gears "chatter" together when the box is in neutral and the clutch up, it goes when the clutch is depressed. This can sound quite bad and does vary from car to car but is not detrimental to the life of the gearbox and we view it as an undesirable characteristic of the LT 77 and R 380 as opposed to a fault with either the gearbox or the clutch.

Q: I've just fitted a rebuilt gearbox to my Disco/Defender, the third and fourth shifts are not very good. Why?

A: When you let go of the gearstick on either the LT77 or the R 380 Discovery boxes the stick will spring to the 3 / 4th gate. This gate position is set by the position of the bias plate. This gate position must be adjusted correctly to agree with the selectors in the gearbox to ensure a good gearshift. When we rebuild the boxes we set this position but sometimes it needs fine tuning when in the car. If the shifts to 3rd and 4th are not clean you may want to adjust this plate, to do this first you must drive the vehicle but when shifting into 3 and 4 instead of letting the gearstick go where it wants to go try holding it a little to the left then a little to the right, one way or the other it will drop in nicer. When you have worked this out you can slacken the 4 screws holding the plate and move the plate left or right accordingly to improve the shifts, the holes are elongated to allow some movement.

Q: I am familiar with the much talked about mainshaft wear problem on my Defender/Discovery but I don"t know how bad mine is, or if I need to look at replacing my gearbox?

A: The best way of ascertaining the degree of wear is to chock the two front wheels, handbrake off, mainbox in first and jack up a rear wheel. Remove the PTO cover to the left of the handbrake and you will be able to see the gearbox mainshaft in the centre and the transfer case input gear around it. By rocking the handbrake drum you will be able to rock the gear around the shaft thus getting some idea of wear / backlash between the two.

Q: I've just fitted a rebuilt gearbox to my defender, the third and fourth shifts are not very good. Why?

A: Most rebuilt gearboxes, including ours, come without the "turret". This the part that the gearstick bolts to. If you pull back the rubber boot on the turret you will reveal two large springs and two adjuster screws and locknuts. The role of these springs and screws is to set the rest position of the gearstick when you let go of it and is referred to as the 3/4 bias setting. When you fit a new gearbox this can sometimes need adjusting to agree with the selector shafts to ensure a clean gearshift. Firstly you need to work out which way to adjust it, to do this drive the vehicle but when shifting into 3 and 4 in stead of letting the gearstick go where it wants to go try holding it a little to the left then a little to the right, one way or the other it will drop in nicer. When you have worked this out you can adjust the screws the springs are resting on to lean the stick left or right until it shifts better.

Q: When driving my 200 Tdi Discovery / Range Rover the gearstick has suddenly become very vague and is flapping side to side. Why?

A: Inside the aluminium top cover of the gearbox, which is secured by two large Phillips head screws, you will find two large springs which rest on a L shape steel plate which give your 3rd/4th bias gate position. This L shaped plate is very prone to cracking off where it is bent which will result in you losing the 3rd/4th rest position when in neutral and thus the shifts will become vague. This plate is inexpensive and can be changed with gearbox in situ.The part number of this Bias plate is FRC9340.

Q: Are snorkels for Defender suitable for both LHD and RHD vehicles?

A: Yes they are suitable for LHD & RHD vehicles.

Q: Are chequer plate sill protectors, wingtop protectors etc, supplied as pairs?

A: Yes they are always supplied a pair when there is a pair on your vehicle. Obviously bonnet protectors and rear crossmember protectors are individual!

Q: Is the Defender Glove Box for Puma (PM1187) suitable for Left Hand Drive Models?

A: Yes it is suitable for Left Hand Drive and Right Hand Drive vehicles.

Q: Does your performance inter cooler for Puma (DA4634) require new hoses or will standard fit?

A: Standard will fit without problems.

Discovery

Q: Will PM121 or PM121G Diff Guards fit my Discovery 2?

A: No they won't fit Disco 2, Salisbury, or P38. For Disco 2 we recommend PM1133.

Q: Do you need to change the shock absorbers when fitting DA5136 Disco 2 Air to Coil Kit.

A: No. You are not required to change shock absorbers at the same time.

Q: Does PM023 Heavy Duty Steering Rods fit to LHD Disco II?

A: Yes, it fits both LHD and RHD.

Q: Do 6805120 steel wheels for a Disco 2 come with wheel nuts?

A: Yes they come with wheel nuts.
