    Travelling October-November

    Hi Gary. I am arriving in Santander on 16th October and not returning until mid December. I am a solo traveller and plan every day as it comes. I am open for some Spanish adventures but really want to get to Morocco where it is warmer and I can choose between beach, desert and mountains. I'm...

    Bargain Forum first offer for an expedition 80

    OK - decision made due to no take up at the lowest price I will take. I love it and will keep it (and could break it for £9K with the roof tent). 2 months research has shown me that to upgrade to a 'live inside' expedition 4x4 is going to cost me £50K +. So, I'll head off towards India in the 80...

    Bargain Forum first offer for an expedition 80

    Thanks all. Today I have been looking at the options for converting what I have, but the prices are € high! I also want room for a friend or one of my kids to be able to stay in relative comfort and these conversions are really for couples. I thought that there would be some 2nd hand vehicles...

    Amazing garage service in S Morocco today

    Yes I can drive, but the surgeon at Moorfields said I was very close to losing the sight and that there was a 40% chance it could happen again - with impacts/bumps being a likely cause. So, cringe, but I sense a motor home with either a scrambler or quad bike as the next step, but they have to...

    Amazing garage service in S Morocco today

    I was doing the Chris Scott MW7 from Tan Tan to Smara. After crossing the Chott Mezwat to the eastern end, it was starting to get dark and I cocked up and headed east along N14, then south down a track towards 'greenery' in the far distance. I was only parked up for 15 minutes when three UN...

    Amazing garage service in S Morocco today

    I’ve recently got back from my adventure, having done 6,500 miles door to door. I only stayed more than one night in the same place twice in two months - and was only under cover when I climbed into the roof tent at night. At 60 and on my own I was definitely challenged and had many ‘close to...

    Amazing garage service in S Morocco today

    So, having arrived in Nador in Morocco on Monday, I’ve travelled down south using the smallest roads possible. Yesterday I made a navigation error and ended up at a military post near the Algerian border (very friendly and offered me tea and water), but the route they advised back was a dead...

    Front drivers window detached from motor

    Thanks thelal and Chris. I'll have a look tomorrow and have one of those tools that prises away the door card without buggering the clips. My bet is unglued but that is only because I want the easiest solution!!!

    Front drivers window detached from motor

    Sorry everyone!!! I'm just been on here getting advice on a 'potentially' failed turbo and I'm back! Yesterday I filled my 60L on board water tank with a steriliser. I've just been out to drain it and rinse it and, when turning the vehicle around 180 degrees to drain it, found that my drivers...

    Urgent advice required on a CT26 (17201 17010) Turbo

    I would love the contact details of a good place to contact if anything goes wrong. I will have a spare rear shock, UJ's, bearings, starter motor (it's auto), injectors, and other bits. But, I learned from 33 years of driving Series 1 Landies that you always need what you don't have with you!

    Urgent advice required on a CT26 (17201 17010) Turbo

    Thanks for all the replies! Tomorrow morning we are going to run the vehicle, with another following, until the problem occurs and the check it out. The 'we' is my ex RAC friend who is now a mobile mechanic with all the gear on board to help. I don't think it is fuel, as after the issue happened...
