Re: Shall I or shan't I ???

I've read somewhere if you let it expire, you can't ever renew it again. If so you'll probably want to renew it. Anyone please correct me if I'm wrong. As far as I am aware that is the case. I like it when it works but it has a habit of not recording odd journeys. I assume that is something to do w...

Re: Boot lining

I bought the edge trim that wasn't fitted to earlier cars. You can't see it anyway. Total waste of money.

Re: Pela 6000 oil pump

I decided, for a time wasting exercise, to look also at the Sealey pumps. Right in the middle of the catalogue page was the PELA pump rated at 5.5 ltrs. It is actually 6 hence 6000 in the name. Then a look at the usual places for prices and it varies from £40-£50. I also looked at several "write ups...

Re: Pela 6000 oil pump

One other point to remember is that there is a renewable "O" ring at the bottom of the canister threads. If you gently insert a screwdriver under it from the shoulder end, to avoid thread damage, it will unhook slowly along the threads with a bit of manipulation. It is quite a tight fit.

They should wear full NASA spacesuits to approach such a simple outside jobs and decontaminate the car fully in quarantine for 2 weeks. :lol: :lol:

Re: I hate the surviving dinosaurs!

A chap was out in a field with his 12 bore shooting pheasants when a priest was passing and could hear him swearing. "I heard you swear when you missed" said the Priest " God will strike you down with a thunderbolt if you persist" BANG BANG! " Bloody hell, missed again" said the man The priest warne...

Re: Pela 6000 oil pump

Yes, just lift it gently at the front and there are indeed 4 ball sockets which it just pops off. Very simple. The oil filter canister requires a small canister removal tool as it it a tight fit. Mine is a 1/2" drive centre piece with an adjustable strap, similar to a thin seat belt. Very easy to us...

Re: New (Used) xe from dealer - Engine Management Light..

Fuel update on my 2015 180D is as soon as the ignition is on and engine running. There are so many little quirks to the XE over 5 years of production. Mine is now behaving perfectly after a few earlier jobs. I too looked at several cars inc the XF which, although a nice car, just didn't quite feel r...

Re: Pela 6000 oil pump

Yes I removed the oil filter first and heard it drain. There is a small valve at the bottom that is released and it drains off. This is possibly the least messy and easiest oil filter I have ever changed over many cars. It is also surprisingly small. It was a genuine JLR filter at £12.
