  1. Thanks - that's the next step - eliminate the obvious.
  2. Love my 2007 LS but it seems to have an annoying judder over even small bumps - as if the whole chassis is oscillating 2 or 3 times. Tried it on different air suspension setting and have even experimented with tyre pressures (its on Dunlop SP Sport with 19" rims) but no difference. At motorway speed and smooth surfaces its fine. Could it be one or more of the struts is on its way out? 10 years old and 93k miles so not too bad although I can live with it considering what replacement cost would be. Will see if Techdoc showing anything later.
  3. Hi Derek - that looks like a very straight forward and cheap solution. Many thanks - I'll be doing the same.
  4. Yes - the metal crush gasket and O ring came with it. Need to torque the 3 different size bolts down - all with different torque setting. Will maybe put a very thin smear of gasket RTV on as a precaution. Plan to do this weekend so will try and get some photos along the way. I will be running coolant flush through the system before hand and replacing coolant.
  5. Pump arrived today from USA - total cost £70 inc carriage/charges.
  6. Mine has 92k on clock. By all accounts pump is straightforward and I'm fairly handy with the spanners. Will put some interior shots on the file. As I had just washed it at the weekend and the sun was shining I wanted to get some shots of the caspian sky paintwork. It gets a few comments. It seems to change colour depending on the light and sky colour. V5 document shows it as blue. Have started to work my way around panel by panel removing all tar spots and applying renovator and polish. End result will be worth it. Amazing condition for its age.

  8. Yes - aware of that thanks. Will only be vat as its less than £120. You can sometimes also get away with that too.
  9. Always suspected a leak since a I got it ( the odd gurgle from behind dash on startup which indicates air in system) but it wasn't serious so did not dig too deep. However, took some parts off at the weekend to have a root around and voila! Classic seeping pump. Have already got the coolant and coolant flush and pump is on the way from USA - great price - so weekend job coming up. Looks easy enough.
