Re: Radiator

Yes I will most definitely not be entertaining a repair. I want piece of mind when I am traveling...especially when it is in remote areas.

It started as a very small hole when I was away on holiday over December and I tried to contain it best possible with Steenvas to get home. It has now progressed into a proper leak an...

Re: Diff-lock (vacuum solenoid) problems? - We can help..

Awesome. Thanks Alex. I will surely be making a call tomorrow morning.

I assume I will have to cut the OEM plug to wire in the TT?

Pricing?

By the looks of things it is a well rated product.

Re: Diff-lock (vacuum solenoid) problems? - We can help..

I gave John at PECS a call in CPT and provided him the MAC part number listed earlier in the thread. Apparently they can get it on order 4 - 6 weeks. Not sure if anyone has recently tried to order and if that part number is still valid. R1256 excl. Also not sure if the spec of the part has changed s...

Thanks Phillip

As this is a repair that should be done by the dealer that sold me the vehicle the only compromise I am willing to make is a new aftermarket product. I will ask for the faulty unit and maybe have that reconditioned as a spare.

Re: Diff-lock (vacuum solenoid) problems? - We can help..

Hi

I just got a 4.8 and that solenoid is ceased up proper. Are these aftermarket units still available and whom can I contact to get hold of one?

Thanks

Re: Interior Trimmers Western Cape

Thanks all. Yes before ripping out the Roofliner I will first visit a professional valet/detailing company to get an opinion on the odds of cleaning the current one. I am convinced if I am going to try and clean it I will end up replacing it :lol: I did get a good reference of a company which I will...

Re: Interior Trimmers Western Cape

Thanks Huge. I was also thinking Escape Gear.

Now I just need to find a local company to do the trimming repairs.

Interior Trimmers Western Cape

Hi All I am in the process of potentially buying a 4.8 :woo: but the state of the interior is a bit...let's just say in need of some love. I am looking to have the roof lining and potentially carpets replaced as well as fixing up the cracks in the seats. 1. Can anyone recommend someone in the Cape T...
