Re: New DS? Dilemma re oil dilution etc

If you are only doing 7k per year I would suggest a Diesel engine is not the best option, oil dilution or not!

Front seat headrests

Please can somebody tell me if it possible to remove the headrests from the front seats - I have a long load to fit in and they are in the way!

Thanks

Re: Dashboard rattle when around 1250rpm

I bought a bicycle inner tube which I cut into strips to stuff into various places around the dash etc to kill the vibrations and rattles. Very effective, cheap and doesn’t look out of place.

Re: Turbo Charger Issue (whistle)

Could it be one if the air pipes that had a bad joint or a small split/hole? That would explain the whistle and perhaps the lag if there is a drop in air pressure to the turbo?

LR Experience Session

Just finished our complimentary LR experience at the centre near Skipton. Had an amazing afternoon and the instructor, John, was very informative and amazingly patient.

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

So, now the satisfied (if temporary) owner of a Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE whilst they sort out my DS. Managed to get an agreement that they will give me a full tank of diesel in the DS as recompense for the additional cost of running the RRS and, most surprisingly, they have SIGNED a document stati...

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

So, the plot thickens... Had Inchcape Preston and LR Assist on the phone this afternoon. They have advised that I use the car as little as possible and have arranged to collect it tomorrow and leave me a courtesy car for the duration! Parts are, apparently, on back order but they are concerned about...

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

Just had the diagnosis of balance shaft bearing failure on my 4 month old DS with 7500 miles (actually think it went around 2 months and 4000 miles but took a while to get it to the dealer). Just waiting to hear when if will be going in and whether it is repair or replacement engine. Watch this spac...

Re: Under boot storage

I planned to make a round box that would sit on top of the spare wheel to hold all my work kit but, having fitted a dog guard and boot liner it is so difficult to lift the floor that I haven’t bothered (yet).
