I can’t tell you how many times I have looked at at the post and tried to rationalize buying it. But, I already have one and too many other vehicles. I do have a question. On the fan cowl / shroud, is it a 2 piece version or a 1 piece?

You should definitely buy another--as we say at work, two is one and one is none . . .

It's a one piece fan shroud--I looked into swapping to a two piece, which would make fan removal a small bit easier, but then realized that I just didn't care that much about saving 5 min every year. . .

Would that be a Defender 300tdi fan shroud, then? Discovery 200tdi? I am asking as I am trying to find a fan shroud for my ride. Defender 300tdi shrouds are still available new, Discovery 1 is not. Hoping the Defender, which is a 1 piece, will fit. Maybe you know the part number of yours?

Defender shroud, for sure—just went out and checked—had to do a rubbing with pencil and paper because I could tell where the part number was but couldn’t quite make it out: ESR2308.
