  1. me too -awaiting acceptance
  2. wouldnt bother now. Non-standard HIDs are an MOT fail now! Osram Nightbreakers are a very good bulb upgrade over standard.
  3. I have been thinking how I can prevent any other thieving scroat just rolling under my Ranger and nicking my cat again! I have thought about a cover/guard over it! Anyone else done this? Maybe the 4x4/off-road people do it? Who would do such guards? (I prefer the idea of a plate/guard rather than one of those s/s wire locks)
  4. oh - and dont take it off, or put it back on, in the cold! The plastic clips shatter! I have 8 broken bits of plastic now!
  5. Some thieving scumbag tosspot has nicked my cat! Apparently this happening a lot! Loads of room to just roll underneath and simply cut the pipework between the flanges! 5 minutes and job done! 3 in the Durham area, and 6 in the Castleford area recently! (Guess the dealers I have spoken to!) The thing is - I have been quoted a massive range of prices to replace it! Dealer prices have ranged from £800+vat to a horrifying £2300+vat! (I also have a price from an independant garage that I am going to keep t myself for fear of ridicule, and other comments such as 'you can't get them that cheap!') So - no more parking it on my drive. I will park it on the road where everyone can see it!
  6. turns out I was just being too gentle - a first for me! There are indeed fixings in the lower inner-wing area, but they are push-fit clips that just need pressing a little! 10 seconds of pressing, and the bumber popped off! So - a combination of a couple of M4 bolts in the wheel arch areas, two M6 bolts underneath, two M6 bolts at the top, and a host of plastic clips, a little wriggle at each end pops them off! No need to remove wheel arch liners or headlight units! :(
  7. I have been trying to get my front bumper off, without success! I have managed to get everything off, but it is still fixed at the ends, under the wings, in the back-of-the-headlight area! I have been on for ages trying to get the thing off, but I have given up for today/this year! There doesnt appear to be anything obvious holding it on, but there definately is - and I cant see it! Any ideas before I break something? (You would think that a vehicle of this size would have loads of room to work in, but no, its just as bad as my Nissan in this instance!)
