Thanks, its actually Britparts new version, theyve changed to Ring LEDs but they are bigger so needs a new bumper design. My 90 Project : http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic52774.html

Ticked another few jobs off the list;

The bodyshop who carried out the repair on the rear of my Defender also noticed I had a broken exhaust hanger and welded it back on for me which was great!

Ive now fitted a replacement reverse light switch - thanks to the advice on this forum - and it has cured my intermittent reverse light, which is great.

I replaced my VCV which again, due to the wonderful people on this forum I got for a bargain. I then visited the very friendly and helpful Ian who carried out the VCV relearn for me. Bow down

So despite the wrongun who recently visited this forum - it just goes to show most are a brilliant group of friendly, helpful and like minded people Bow down

Ive also recently fitted the TMD cruise control kit, which is a really nice touch for long journeys and especially towing aup and down the motorways!

Finally, and maybe my favourite mod (close run thing with the LED headlights!) is a new Pioneer headunit. This is the new Pioneer CarPlay unit, so does nav, music, all in one. Fantastic piece of kit!

Did the VCV/pilot re learn make any difference to the way it ran?

Hi Ian,

I was going to PM you - yes as soon as I drove away I could feel it was smoother at low revs (under 2k)

Ive now done about 100miles and its markedly different, smoother and barely any stuttering..

Ive also noticed it seems easier to start in the morning when cold, and barely any smoke although it hasnt been quite as cold the last couple of mornings.

So yes, all things considered, everything I hoped for Mr. Green

Thank you Bow down My 90 Project : http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic52774.html

Finally found the time to fit the Wheel carrier, this is a britpart special. Since thinking I’d bought the Mantec then finding out they were no longer available, I hunted around for an affordable replacement. The rear door being brand new after the little bump, I didn’t want to damage it with that heavy Wheel and tyre hanging off the back!

I’ve now also bought some black plastic caps to cover the silver nuts and bolt heads.


The Defender has gone into a local specialist today to have a few jobs done including fuel tank breather replacement as it can’t be filled up at the moment Big Cry - also Service and MOT, the first in my ownership Whistle My 90 Project : http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic52774.html

Also having used the cruise control recently for a long journey towing - I would strongly recommend getting a kit to anyone, very smooth and controls the speed well. Made for a relaxing drive (other than the normal idiots on the road of course!) Whistle My 90 Project : http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic52774.html

Good news, the Defender passed the MOT with no advisories Mr. Green Thumbs Up

I also took the opportunity to have the following done, so I’m feeling the pain a little;

- Fuel tank breather hose replacement – so it doesn’t leak while filling up
- Annual Service
- Diff Pinion seal
- Oil leak on engine
- Front steering damper (the recently fitted Bilstein had failed ☹ )
- Rear shock bushes
- Panhard rod bushes and bolts (superpro)
- Front swivel shim check / adjust

An expensive few months of Defender ownership but I’m doing my best to keep on top of any issues which arise. Whistle My 90 Project : http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic52774.html
