    Does your D1 have a plastic battery tray liner?

    I have two of them and both have rust underneath where the battery sits. Same spot as the cruise control vacuum pump but on the RH side.

    Does your D1 have a plastic battery tray liner?

    Wow thanks for the responses everyone. I'm genuinely shocked by this. No wonder our battery trays/front wings rust out!

    Does your D1 have a plastic battery tray liner?

    Every car I've owned, with the exception of my two D1's, has had some sort of battery tray liner that the battery rests on. Obviously my trucks have passed through many hands and these components have disappeared. Does anyone have an image or source for what I assume is the battery tray liner...

    Parting out 1996 D1

    To be clear I'm looking for the plastic electrical connectors from the harness. Mine have snapped and it is a annoying to zip tie them in place.

    D1 Head Unit - Cassette Belt Routing

    So good news... the 6 disc changer works and I was able to jam out to ZZ Top's Greatest Hits. The drive belt for my tape deck was nowhere to be found so I replaced it with a generic belt from a variety pack I ordered off of amazon. Everything seems taunt and I could spin all of the three contact...

    D1 Head Unit - Cassette Belt Routing

    All, Do any of you have an image or access to a working D1 head unit? I need to know how to route a cassette belt as mine has snapped. Should be pretty simple, but an image would save me a lot of time and effort.

    Working D1 Head Unit

    Looking for an intact and working D1 head unit. I believe I need to the lowline version (tweeters in A pillar, front door speakers, C pillar speakers, cargo door sub, and floor 6 disc). Needs to have radio code supplied in order to confirm I can unlock on my end. Face plate must be undamaged.

    Wading Plug - V8/R380

    I have two 96 V8 D1s both are manuals and a spare transmission. None of them have these wading plug threads in the bellhousing. So either Land Rover decided there wasn't a reason to have it or they cheaped out and eliminated it for cost savings. Would be interested to see an image of a R380...

    Low to Mid Speed Bucking - CDL Applied and Open

    All, I've been chasing down some rather frustrating issues with my 5spd D1. I regularly encounter bucking in 1st-3rd gear in high range when transitioning from on throttle to off throttle. This is always accompanied with requisite engine fluctuations (100-300 RPM). I.e. off throttle down RPM...

    Wading Plug - V8/R380

    Thanks for the reply. It is very confusing that I have this documentation with clear images showing its existence but no evidence of it on my truck. I'll investigate my '96 owners manual and the rave to see if I can find anymore information. It certainly makes sense that there SHOULD be a wading...

    Wading Plug - V8/R380

    All, According to the diagram below there should be a wading plug for the flywheel housing on V8/r380 Discovery 1's. However, I have been unable to find a part number for this piece. In fact I have only uncovered the wading plug for the TDI models. More confusingly I crawled under my truck this...

    A potentially stupid snorkel idea it's time to actually consider...

    Why not retrofit the defender setup for an under hood snorkel? It won't run up the A pillar but will still raise the intake and you can keep an OE setup. You also won't have to worry about water splashing through that headlamp housing right into the airbox.

    Turn Signal

    You just mean the wires that plug into the turn signal assembly, correct? If I remember correctly those are just a plug from the harness which runs up the steering column. The steering wheel just has a pass through for the cruise control buttons and rotary coupler lead. Have some pictures at...

    Sleeping in a D1 - How would you do it?

    Been searching up and down and found very little on a sleeping platform for inside a D1. I’m about 6’ 1” and 190lbs but based on some measurements I’ve taken it looks like removing the passenger seat is my only real option. Was considering some sort of folding table to rest on the center console...

    hmmm I assume that affects R380s too? Any instructions on how to disable properly? Thanks for letting me know!

    LT230 - Removal How-To or Tips and Tricks?

    Can y'all elaborate on this solenoid? I thought the CDL was actuated manually on the D1.
