  • When I remove the starter, I access the bolts from the engine access area through the boot. I put a ring spanner on the nuts and use a ratchet with different extensions to reach the bolts.

    When it comes to refitting the starter, I often use a bit of tape to stick the nuts to the ring spanner and then lower the spanner down in position.

    I have never had to removed the air cleaner box or access from the wheel arch.

  • Note that you can do remapping of engine ecu at people like KMaps or SAWS tuning. In that case you will have engine ecu with erased need for pairing to alarm ecu. Then you can disable alarm ecu by pulling out the fuse of Lucas system and alarm system will be disabled - but also central locking will be disabled as well, so no use of fob will be present. You will not have passive immobilisation any more as well.
    How your insurance will react in this case is up to you and your insurance.


    Is this true for just MEMS3 or MEMS1.9 as well, that the alarm system can be disabled by pulling the fuse of the Lucas system? I would like to disable the passive immobilisation system in my 1995 F.

  • I can now confirm that the pipes do come out without having to remove the dash and heater assembly. The pipes have to come up and clearer the centre heater vents. The pipes cannot be removed from the passenger compartment until the two rear hoses are removed from the pipes.

  • I'm in the midst of trying to replace the 5 hoses that go to/from the heater matrix.

    I've removed almost everything the originator of this thread did, except I haven't yet removed the heater controls and its support bracket, but it doesn't seem that the pipes can be angled up towards the centre vents. Is it actually possible to remove the heater pipes the way it is described here?

  • Very inventive, but there is one possible problem with your set-up, if the original bonnet cable's metal ring, that attaches to the bonnet release mechanism fails, like a friend's did, then the LR D1's cable fails as well.

    I've fitted an emergency bonnet release cable that attaches in to the slot in the bonnet release mechanism, under the original cable's metal ring and drapes down behind the front bumper (it doesn't hand down quite a far as it appears to in the second picture).

    Always disconnect the earth first, no matter if it is a negative earth car or a positive earth car. This is the safe way to isolate the battery. The battery cut-off should be on the earth lead of the battery.
