Re: Help in Surrey

Thanks a lot for the suggestions. They’re really helpful. I wasn’t sure if I would fry the electronics charging the battery though the cigarette lighter. Can you still get those chargers? I’ll try getting through the grill. I would bet I’m the least mechanically inclined member of the club so we’ll ...

Help in Surrey

Hi Guys, It's been a while since I posted but my Disco has been sitting dead in the driveway for a year. I went to open the hood so I could charge the battery and it appears the hood latch cable came off or "slipped" at the latch. Does anyone know of a trusted mechanical in Surrey who I could get th...

Re: Disco 1 Rear View Mirror replacement

Do the Disco 2 mirrors have map lights? I do like them in mine...
I have no idea. I have a D1 and it came with them. I couldn't find a decent replacement so I opted for sending mine out for repair.

Re: Disco 1 Rear View Mirror replacement

You should be able to do a mirror swap with a disco 2. I had map lights built into mine which are hard to find so I ended up shipping mine off to be repaired. They replaced the glass and now it autodims again. The place is in Texas but it was pretty quick. http://www.radar-mirror.com/Mirror_Repair.h...

Re: Do your off road lights have covers?

Not a lawyer either but my guess is "equipped" would mean operational. If the lights on a roof rack are not wired to the truck, the truck is not equipped with lights.
I guess I'm off to Lordco to get some covers.
