United Kingdom 1997 Defender 90 300 Tdi HT Baltic Blue

what a nightmare i had, on the way to work yesterday i had my rear indicator go off, so i gave the corner a tap and it come on for a second and then went off. I thought ok, i will wait till i get back home, as i had this problem before on the other side, due to corrosion on the contacts on the bulb. Gets home and unscrew the light and unplugged it. Then to my horror, one of the pins had rotted in half and snapped in the loom. Great so i have to order off a new lamp housing now. The defender is off the road until that comes in the post, which might be tomorrow. Not the end of the world as i do have my old trusty, Also i am looking at buying a little plug in heater for the car too, just to get the cab warm quicker. Any one got any ideas on a decent little heater? Defender 300 TDi 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

got the light sorted out, no pictures though of the quick fix, with it coming in dark and it was practically starting to rain sadly. How quick it all comes in dark before it rains now is in real! lights on going to work, and lights on leaving work. Rolling Eyes Defender 300 TDi 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

Great you got the light sorted out, had a similar problem with my brake lights, turned out to be a relatively new set of lights that were fitted by the previous owner, rubbish quality, the brake light bulb pin and the side light bulb pin were touching causing no end of bother so replaced the lot front and back with a good decent set of standard ones.

I was reading your earlier posts, would it not be better if you fitted a new rear crossmember, it would probably work out quicker in the end and be a far better job than patching the old one, you’ll end up patching a patch once you start welding.

Always something to do Thumbs Up
