Northern Ireland 2000 Defender 90 Td5 CSW Epsom Green
Mechanic in Stirling, Scotland

Hoping someone in the Stirling area might be able to recommend a mechanic who could swap a front wiper motor on my daughter's car?

She's in Stirling at university, and I'm in Northern Ireland ๐Ÿ™

The car is MY2005 so don't really want to put a new one on, as she'll be changing it soon. I've sourced a second hand one that she is going to collect, but need recommendations for someone to fit it. Really frustrating, as I know it's a 15 minute job to do, but it's just a bit far for me to travel! I thought about talking her through it via Facetime, but that could end in tears - either hers or mine!!

Any recommendations appreciated.

There are a couple - for a main dealer there is Pentland Land Rover at Whinns of Milton, Bannockburn on the road to,junction 9 of the M9 from Town. Indies - GEMM ( http://www.gemm-lr-parts.co.uk/ )in Larbert about 10 miles away down the old A9 - TheY are well known in the Central Belt, recently opened as a Landy Indy is West End Garage, Buchlyvie ( https://www.yell.com/biz/west-end-garage-b...5138873/)- 16 miles west of Stirling on the A811 road to the Erskine Bridge. I used them this year for annual service and MOT as they are 10 minutes walk from home. A bit of a drive away (45 miles from Stirling) is Lix Toll Land Rovers ( http://www.lixtoll.com/about-us/ ) at Killin who are also good and at Auchterarder is Strathearn Land Rover - last two are well known LR Indies in the area. Iโ€™m out of the UK at present so you need to do some googling for phone numbers/addresses.

For non LR specialists there are plenty of garages, none of which I have any experience , including a Halfords Garage out at Springkerse Industrial Park. It is a big agricultural area with many working Defenders and Discoveries so most village garages in the area can deal with older Land Rover products. Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

From Jon's message, I assumed that his daughters' car isn't a Land Rover? Darren

Andy at Whites Auto does "lesser" vehicles than Defenders, at a good price:

definitely well recommended.

A friend of mine in Alloa (just a couple of miles away) has a garage and may do it for you. PM me if you want his number Defender "Puma" 2.4 110 County Utility (possibly the last of the 2.4's)
