    Passenger foot well leak

    I decided to dive in head first and try my best to make my tin can of a defender sound solid. After sound proofing all of the boot i went ahead and put some dynamat into the foot wells. When pushing of the material to stick it to the metal it didnt take to much force before i could see the road...

    General Defender Ashtray Phone Mount

    This was a quick and easy win, but solved my phone holder issue. I recently came across an eBay listing for a 3D printed adaptor that would fit in the ashtray space on the dash. The adaptor allowed a Ram Mount to be fitted without drilling any new holes in the dash, and covered up the useless...

    Noisy Puma

    I got a 2009 puma, bought it in Spain so even though its got quite a few km on it, it's very fresh runs great. Pumas of course, are supposed to be a bit quieter and smoother the earlier models and I haven't put any thought into the amount of noise the car makes, until I drove the families 2003...

    I'm in a bit of a pickle, I have always wanted a defender and obviously the cheeky chaps over in Coventry have stopped making the originals, so I was wondering if anyone might have advice on where to find good defenders.

    Buying a vehicle remotely - can a mechanic do the test drive?

    So the time has come for a larger Defender. I've been looking for a while, and have finally found one that is the exact spec I want. The only problem is it's in Halifax which is a good five hour drive away from me. I can't get there because of work commitments this week and don't want someone...

    Away from home with a new noise! What is it and should I worry about getting home..?

    Towards the end of a long drive my 200TDI started making a new sound. It’s not a whining sound but it is higher in pitch than the engine noise. It’s quite loud, and the pitch increases with the speed of the vehicle so I think it has to be after the gear box rather than a noise from the engine...

    Fuel line.. holes

    Today I went to fetch something in the Defender having not run it for a few days and after 30seconds or so - before I even got out the yard - it shuddered to a halt. Managed to start it several times but anything more than idling and it would just stop. Changed the fuel filter this evening but...

Problem is I don’t know what’s in their at the moment...
