    Potentially purchasing a LC 100

    Can't go wrong with some sort of expert eye over your potential hole in your pocket, especially if you don't have much knowledge of LC's. I went diesel, not regretting it. Welcome to the forum.

    Idiot Light Lighting up - Lost all power in the fast lane...

    Thanks for your reply Andy! Sounds similar but I lost power as in I could not bring up the revs via throttle, when I finally stopped the engine was ticking over just fine, the engine just would not rev, soon as I restarted she was fine. Very odd!

    Hi all, Just had my windscreen replaced and the fitter has pointed out that the passenger side wiper connection has a lot of play and is wearing/rubbing on the vented grill.

    Who is doing what maintenance today?

    Finally got round to fixing my horn today, the low Hz had already died and over the weekend the high Hz packed up, so deployed 10 year old to play with the steering wheel/horn and went to listen for the relay. All clicked so took off the front grill and put the 10 year old back in the box...

    Morning you lot!

    OE rubber it is! LC is in the garage again today, wielders doing a little work on the sils on the passenger side as well as the step, and the last bit that needs doing is the anchor point of the rear torsion bar as one side of its bolt hole is badly corroded into quite a large hole. Shes back in...
