Re: Hello ALL DISCO 5 owner changing wifes freelander

I thought the fuel consumption might be a bit better than that, my 370Z Nismo does about the same. What did you get on your diesel model? I get just under 40mpg.

They look good to me too! Hard to see from the photo's but sometimes people confuse the micro porosity in the castings to be corrosion.

Re: Heater/Air Con Fan not working.

Just had the same problem with my DS as it has been standing for 2 weeks whilst been abroad. Amazing what you can do with a bamboo cane and this forum!
Thanks for the instructions on getting the fan turning again!

Re: Rusty brake discs & Calipers

I would agree with Dashnine, I can't see how the discs would cause the calipers to become corroded. The calipers are pre-treated and then zinc plated to conform to salt-spray testing specifications. The washing of the wheel area is a relevant question as some of the 'hand car wash' outfits use very ...
