    Central locking auto lock

    Hi, might be worth checking the wiring inside the tailgate. Mine was doing similar and I found 3 of the 5 (I think) wires that are bundled together inside were shorting. If you take the trim off and look towards the bottom left hand side you should see the wires coming into the tailgate. Its the...

    Crankshaft pulley clearance

    Thanks guys, looks like mine has the same clearance. I did try a pry bar and block of wood but the balancer seems solid. I have a problem with alternator belt squeal. I have fitted new belts and adjusted them as per normal but it is still there under acceleration. Don't want to go too tight...

    Crankshaft pulley clearance

    Hi, I am a bit concerned about my harmonic balancer or crankshaft pulley clearance. I have heard of the rubber deteriorating in them allowing them to move and possible rub a hole in the front cover. Here is a pic of mine, how does it look to you guys?

    2003 air con hose

    Any idea where I can get air conditioner hoses for a 2003 Australian delivered hdj100. My hose with the high pressure service valve in it is leaking around the crimp. My aircon guy tried recrimping, but it hasn't worked. Looks like they are no longer available here in oz. Thanks

    Winscreen replacment

    Hi, anyone know how these plastic bits are held in? Mine had a new screen put in before I purchased it & I think they may have broken some clips as it feels loose & rattles from the wind passing over it. The faster you go the worse it gets. I stuffed a bit of rag under it & the rattle went away...

    Anyone running AGM battery under the hood?

    Pics a requested. I am lucky in that I have access to some fabrication equipment, but there isn't a lot in it. I used one of the original horn bracket mounting holes & an existing 'spare' hole. On top of the fuse box would be ok I guess...I have also seen the mounted over near the fuel filter...

    Anyone running AGM battery under the hood?

    Hi Ben, I made a bracket to mount it behind the grill on the drivers side. It sits nicely just above the intercooler. I had to move the two horns onto my bracket & used their holes to attach the new one. I know the charger is supposed to be ok under the bonnet, but it will be a heap cooler out...

    2002 4.2TD alternator,smart or not?

    Hi, just reading through the instructions for wiring up my Projecta dc to dc charger & can see that the ignition wire is only needed for vehicles fitted with a smart alternator. Does my Australian spec Nov 2002 Sahara have one, or can I leave this wire off? Cheers.

    Anyone running AGM battery under the hood?

    Thanks Dave, just ordered a Projecta 25 amp charger, a 'Power AGM' 135 AH battery & a couple of 50 amp circuit breakers to get me started. It will be a couple of weeks before I will have time to install them.

    Anyone running AGM battery under the hood?

    Hi, my 2003 TD 100 series still has the factory standard dual battery system & the batteries are on their way out. When I replace them I will definitely need to isolate one to run my fridge (went camping a few weekends back & flattened both). I am thinking of installing a large SLA battery as a...
