Re: Alternator and battery box

DITTI TO: "As a disclaimer I am a self confessed electro-ignoramus." On my previous 3.0GL I started having ABS and airbag warning lights whilst in Namibia. Never battery/charging light. Long storey short apparently the alternator was periodically not putting out 13 Volt but (seemingtly more importan...

Re: Wiper blades

Checked my office vehicles this morning. Definitely some of the blades are not a rubber compound - probably silicone but I cannot tell.

Pulled the invoice on the Isuzu LDV. Blades last replaced November 2015 and purchased at Autozone. Methinks more research called for.....

Wiper blades

My "new" wiper blades have perished after +/- 14 months since replacement. I have tried to buy the blades themselves (silicone if I recall correctly) as I did for my other vehicles. Autozone tell me that they no longer supply this product.

Any suggestions from forum members?

Michael I see from the Botswana trip that a few folk wrapped the shadecloth over the bonnet and covered the Inlet for the intercooler. Your opinion - necessary to also cover the intercooler?

Shadecloth cover radiator

I dont see any comment or guidance on the forum on seed protection of radiator. Clearly most radiator covers are a form of shadecloth. Any advice :think: ? Shadecloth comes from 1% protection to something like 80% protection. I assume the better the sun protection the less flow-through of air? We wi...
