    Dog guard

    Recently bought 120 dog guard, from Adrianlle on here. Originally for collection, after discussion about price, he went out of his way to pack and post to me all within the measurement constraints imposed, and didn't want payment until received. Fantastic bloke to deal with. Thanks Adrian.

    Upper rear lights

    Have any of you 120 guys got these operational? As we know it all depends on where the spare wheel is mounted that blocks off side when door open, and as mine is on the rear door, only the brake lights work as per Mr T. I have done a search ( on here and elsewhere) and can find mention of people...

    Seat belts

    This is an odd one (to me anyway). Just prepping my 2006 lc3 for mot, and on coming to check 3rd row rear fold up seats that have 2 inertia belts in normal high bolt on positions, find there are 3 receivers with red release buttons across both seats in their down position and one other small...

    Any of you 120 owners used kva distributors front bumper fog lights. I have used them previously for other stuff and been happy with, but I don't want something that will hold moisture and corrode inside in a short time. The oem o/s is shot for that reason and mot coming up. I know karl2000...

    What is this

    2006 lc3 o/side wheel arch there is a series of louvres to front area, more or less behind bumper.

    Locks, this time

    Back again chaps with another query. I have removed both batteries in anticipation of getting new, and cleaning up slight rust beneath trays, I thought I could lock this manually with key in drivers door and throwing the door "switches" on each door separately. This all went to plan until I got...

    Hi All, Apologies in advance, because I am sure this has been covered in the past, but an not getting any definitive results. Will a cylinder head for the old hiace 2.8 (3ltr) code LN106/107 I think, be a direct swap for an lj78 with 2.4 2l-te engine, with no other work involved ? Thanks, John
