Re: Rear brake pulsing

Did you replace the drums? I replaced mine once as a matter of course even though the originals were not badly worn and still serviceable. I bought new drums from JK and I had the same issue. Turned out the brand new ones weren't round! I just put the old ones back with new shoes and it has been fin...

Re: Van security

According to my Haynes manual, the wire from the ignition switch to the coil is black and is attached to ignition switch terminal 15. All you need is a reliable on/off switch. I used a good quality push/pull automotive type. Just cut the wire and extend it if needed to a good location for the switch...

Re: awning suitability

I have an air awning that I have used for five years and it has been absolutely perfect without ever leaking. The only issues I have had is with the eyelets that attach the floor as it has a separate floor and they are not really strong enough.  It is worth thinking about what you will use the awnin...

Re: East Midlands under hightop welding?

Spot welded then I presume, and from inside of the panel? I have work to do on my van at some point and I am trying to get a picture of the construction of it all before I start.

Re: East Midlands under hightop welding?

This might be a daft question but where there are seams between panels, where they always seem to go rusty, is there any connection between the panels or are they separate with sealant just filling the gap?

Re: East Midlands under hightop welding?

I have a similar problem although my van is rusty along the gutters. I can't see how it is possible to fix without taking off the hitop? Lots of vans have had hitops removed though and I haven't seen any posts of difficulties afterwards. I suspect it is more likely that they don't want to do it!!

Re: Van security

I have a visible lock on the steering wheel and a hidden switch which which I installed that cuts the 12V supply from the ignition switch to the coil. It is easy to do and totally stops the engine from starting. Because it is hidden and not advertised, then any thief would not know to look for it! T...

Re: Footwell water leak

How good are you door seals? I get water in both front footwells and I know it isn't from the windscreen but there is a path from the door seal at the front top where it runs down the leading edge of the door window. I have new seals but because they are a loop, and the door stay and speaker wires g...

Re: Leaking Petrol Tank

So on closer inspection I think the sender unit seal was leaking. I always got petrol dripping from the rear edge of the tank and I think after cleaning the tan, these stain marks tell the story!!  :D :D :D :D :D :D

Will do! My mirrors arrived today. They are so much better than aftermarket T25 ones!

Re: Leaking Petrol Tank

You are right! So here are the pictures with the staining marks evident. I have the right seal for the filler neck and all seems good. The breather pipe flexibles were all pretty perished too but I think that would just give a smell of petrol and not a leak! https://i.imgur.com/l9WmYaL.jpg https://i...

Leaking Petrol Tank

My petrol tank has been leaking for some time now but only when I fill it right up. If I fill till the pump clicks off, I got a run of fuel under the van which by the time I had done a mile or so stopped. I had assumed it was the rubber grommets on the breathers and the filler neck so I have just ta...

Landrover Discovery Brackets and Door Mirrors

I see someone on eBay is selling brackets to allow fitment of Land Rover Discovery door mirrors to a T25. Does anyone have any experience of these? My original mirrors cracked and the aftermarket ones I bought were money down the drain!! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/land-rover-defender-landy-mirror-br...
