United Kingdom 2007 Defender 110 Puma 2.4 DCPU Stornoway Grey

Spot on, well done! Directly beneath the nozzle is the infamous "K109" header on the main harness. This is used for many connections on most circuits, including panel lights and HRW. It seems the under-dash deluge shorted these two together.

I am thankful that these were the only ones affected, all sorts of things could have gone haywire.

It is however worth remembering should anyone else get odd things happening after screen washer failure.

Drove 300 miles West on Sunday, and drove 300 miles back East Monday afternoon/ evening. The 110 ran like clockwork and made me smile Very Happy I always enjoy the look of surprise/annoyance on some driver's faces when they are passed by a Defender on the M25 !! 2010 XS USW

Decided run the 90, it’s sat for about 8 weeks, started right up (kept on a c-tek conditioner), fuelled it up, headed West as that’s where there was blue skies and found a food outlet open in Nantwich.

Then we just drove a load of B roads around Cheshire. After driving a boggo td5 for the past couple of months, I had forgotten how nice the v8 is to drive. instagram @v8_scumbag

United Kingdom 1999 Defender 110 Td5 SW Caledonian Blue

Replaced the drivers side windows outer waist seal in the hope of stopping water getting in and out under the carpet. The old seal had a small nick on the edge that goes against the glass. 1999 Defender TD5 110

United Kingdom 1994 Defender 90 300 Tdi SW Arles Blue

Took two hours to remove my front wiper arms off the splined adapters. Had to drill the grub screw out and use a small hub puller to get the driver side splined adapter off.

Put the first coat of Arles Blue on the rear seat bases after treating corrosion with Ali-Clean and Etch Primer.

Malta 2012 Defender 90 Puma 2.2 CSW Santorini Black

Done over a period of almost 1.5weeks.. but assembled today.
Every time I open the bonnet, had to look away as the slam panel and other bits were becoming to be an eyesore.
