Fitted some 2016 LED rear lights tonight.. installed the resistors all working ok. Go to bolt in the RHS one, and notice that the lens has separated from the light unit !! This is a new Valeo one too. Had to put some tape on it for tonight as I need to use the truck in the morning.

Hopefully get it replaced.

Oh also put up 6th & 7th seat for the first time..

Tomorrow my plan it too replace the o ring's in my front valve block.

Patience is the keen when refilling the system. I didn't give mine enough time to recharge so I must of had it on and off 3 times and stripped and rechecked. Good advice on here from Pete K stopped me pulling my hair out.

Changed transfer box fluid. Used Ravenol TF-0870. Old one looked fairly good in terms of color.

The fuel system got a can of BG 44K to top off the tank. Land Rover wrote a bulletin of that back in 2011 ("SSM46917 - Gasoline Fuel Additive For Clogged Fuel Injectors"). I didn't have any codes related to it but seemed like a good idea for preventive maintenance. Was €35 with 24% VAT. Big Cry

Thanks for the advise, I didn't do it in the end due to the rain.. So rebuilt my winch instead in the kitchen !!

Finished off the retrofitting of front fogs and front pdc. Enabled pdc in Ccf. How easy was that. Well done to GAP for the iid kit. Thumbs Up

Upgraded satnav disc to a bit more recent... disc in the drive was from 2005. Someone must have fiddled with it at some point as the lock switch was in unlocked position and some of the loom clips under the driver's chair were loose, reconnected them to the frame.

Also had the power steering fluid changed, the shop used altogether around 1.5 L. We put Pentosin CHF11S as the new fluid.

Replaced old style front differential breather vent with a new one, LR019450. Probably easiest thing I’ve ever done save for changing cup holders.

Changed to brand new winter Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9 SUV 255/55R19 tires with studs and brand new bolts I got from Bearmach.

I think the wheels are FFRR 2003-2006 stock rims but I'm not 100% sure - I got them as a deal sweetener.




The tire dealership said that if I get stuck in the winter it isn't going to be something that can be attributed to the vehicle or the tires.

Winter is coming... Rolling with laughter
