John, I found the mud on Salisbury plain dried like concrete and did no favours to radiators and alternators too. Looking forward to seeing some pics in the newsletter.

The 'state of the art' cassette player is a relatively easy fit add on then? Smile

I can't fit the radio cassette until I can find a scrap 200Tdi Discovery and remove the 12 pin socket.

Red herring, Rich. Land Rover usage tomorrow. Refuelling and collecting 2 sacks of dog food and a new garden incinerator.

How many times have you started the 90 since you took the earth leads off and put them back on again?

The latest gadget from Q?

I declare Geoff the winner as he was nearest.
Every month for the past 4 or so years I have received an email from Skytag confirming my Land Rover tracker was working. On Tuesday 21st May the email said it had failed. It was about 5pm then so I rang the following day and asked for another test as it was on the drive and Mrs. D, the dogs and I had been out in the sticks the 21st. It failed again so Skytag said to send it back and it would be repaired or replaced for free. I said I would send it back after the Bank Holiday as I didn't want it lost in Parcelforce's depot.
I sent it Tuesday 28th by first class delivery and I contacted the insurance to let them know the situation because I have a discount for it.
Wednesday 29th afternoon before I got around to checking the delivery details Skytag sent an email saying it had been repaired and I should get it back in 2 or 3 days. It arrived this morning.
I fitted it, requested a test which came back as a pass and then notified the insurance.
Now that is superb service from Skytag.

Land Rover activity today:-

I got the aircon working. I had a dodgy contact in the engine bay fuse box which was stopping the A/C compressor clutch from engaging. Once I had that sorted out I realised that the gas pressure was low and so I gave it a bottle charge and it's now blowing cold. Very Happy

Mrs BJ will be pleased as the cabin got quite warm with long runs at the weekend with a lot of heat coming from the autobox while towing. They do get a might warm when under load.
