Re: Dust ingress at rear door

My experience is that the dust enters on the front part of the door's sill. See pics below. Dont know if adjusting the striker will help for that issue.

Re: Indicator fuse keeps blowing

Plouw, what jack are you referring to please? I drove through some shallow storm water in town a week or so ago and since then my indicator fuse also keeps blowing. The warning lights on my dash comes on and flickers when I try to use the indicators or hazards. Checked the tow plug and splicing twic...

Re: Warning lights flickering - short due to water?

I unhooked the battery last night - problem stayed the same. I found a blown fuse - one for that hazards, replaced with a new fuse and it blew as soon as I put it in. So, there seems to be a short somewhere that impacts the mentioned warning lights on the instrument panel. Something got wet and is c...

We had some serious rain here in Pmb yesterday and I had to drive through some water, spraying it all over. This morning I got in and noticed that my water, oil, battery and AT Temp lights in the instrument panel were shining. They then flicker as the indicators would when I try to use the indicator...

Re: Possible overheating

Start with list below and work your way downward.

- Replace thermostat
- Flush and replace coolant
- Physically take out, clean and service radiator
- Replace water pump.

Simply servicing the radiator in-situ wont give you an idea of how blocked it is outside.

Re: DIY: Cylinder Head Replacement & other items

PS: Another thing to remember - do not rotate the crank anti-clockwise as it could cause damage to the timing chain and tensioner. You will have to rotate it in order to get the marks on the camshafts aligned towards the top, or to give the timing chain a little slack when removing the guides/pulley...

Re: DIY: Cylinder Head Replacement & other items

When removing the fuel filter - drain it by placing a container underneath as you unscrew everything. It is not good for your starter when pouring diesel all over it like that. I had to replace one or two starters because of this previously.

Also remember to plug those lines.
