  1. Sorry, never did get round to posting photos!!! Well, as at Weds 1800, I am no longer an LS400 owner - I gave it to my son currently in dire straits transportwise Its been the best 6 years driving I've ever had, and have enjoyed the information and banter on here no end. So thanks to all on here, maybe in the future I'll get another LS, but for the time being I went and bought a Discovery TD5 ES 2001 for £9995 with 57k on the clock, immaculate! :winky: Best regards Dave
  2. OK - It was £125+vat (sorry memorys going) and its at Dartford Transmissions 01322 222608. Speak to Bob Andrews or Tony. I have no afiliation with them apart from having my tranny done there. Regards Dave
  3. It was around £115 if memory serves but I am at work so dont have the full details with me but will post tonight soon as I find them Dave
  4. A reputable AutoTrans specialist will be able to do a 100% change for you by removing the pipes from the cooler and fitting them to a 'machine', running the engine and swapping old fluid for new It works a treat - I had mine done last summer at a place in Dartford, Kent (bit far from you!), they didnt use T-IV but it was pink (and still is!) and there is NOTHING jerky or slipping about my trans - still just as smooth and silky as its always been. Dave
  5. No the 2 screens for the animals in the back!!!
  6. I'm going to get one for this summers hols to amuse the kids in the back (twin screen jobbie) and just after any accumulated knowledge or preferences Anyone got one that works well or more importantly badly ? Regards Dave
  7. I think its probably the volume control for the cars 'reply' to the remote control beeper From the manual - "When you push the remote control switch the vehicle sounds one beep when the doors are locked by remote control, and 2 beeps when the doors are unlocked. You can adjust the beep loudness with the knob under the dashboard. Turning the knob counterclockwise increases the volumme and turning it clockwise until it clicks turns it off" Regards Dave
  8. Currently looking for a Land Cruiser Colorado at about 8k so my LS is available if anyone wants to do a deal. Not looking for huge bucks but it all works (except remote locking) and is my daily driver. PM for more info Cheers all Dave
  9. Copies certainly work in mine - its the originals I'm not sure of
  10. If you mean the O ring at the bottom of the PSFluid reservoir, its about 3 quid from a Toyota garage - PN 90080-30040 I have one sitting in front of me at the moment waiting for me to get off my arriss and fit it Aparently just one bolt to remove at the bottom of the reservoir HTH Dave
  11. Cruise ......... hmmmmm - Certainly like it on long empty motorways and on motorways with the caravan on the back, but otherwise its not much use - now I could (I think) get used to Adaptive cruise - all I need is the money for the car that goes round it
  12. Pete, Agree wholeheartedly with your comments except the one about traction control and clever bits - I'm not too sure when TC was standard on an LS but mine certainly hasnt got it. I've never had a car with it and I'm not too sure whether I'd like the 'car taking over' - I've been driving too long! The only bit of clever stuff I've got is ABS! Dave
  13. Surely the best tyres (ie newest) always go on the driven wheels (as my dad, an RR engineer for 30 years (still going strong at 97!) always said) and never mix brands on an axle. My dads 2p!!
  14. Well, doing a bit of research here and other places ( Colins Barbers reply) it would seem that Colin (knowledgebase master!) says its not interferance. There are so many HUGE differences between the LS and GS engines that its not really worth comparing them on any level!
  15. 999,933 If a turtle doesnt have a shell, is it naked or homeless ?
  16. It has been said that the LS has a 'non contact' engine so a broken belt would only give a sound of the belt flapping around - however I'm not totally sure so it might be an expensive error to make
  17. Yep, normal fluids fine, look on the stick, one side shows mark for hot, the other for cold
  18. As Tigerfish says.... and I let mine get very low (dont ask!) during the summer and thought that I had screwed the rack, but topping to the correct level seemed to sort it out - no noise now! HTH Dave
  19. Hi and welcome - looks like you got a real bargain. Stereo bulbs are in the back - for stereo removal look here Oil and filter is as you say (well thats all I do anyway!) Wheel center caps will probably be main dealer unless you are very lucky with a breakers! Not sure about the leather, there have been discussions here in the past and have really amounted to no decisions in the end - no doubt someone will add something. I just clean mine every now and again, cream leather does get grubby! Just enjoy your car - they are the best! Dave
  20. Yup all the bulbs (theres loads!!) are removable from the back. See for how to remove the stereo - not difficult long as you are careful with spikey things and the nice wood!!!
  21. Nigerian puppy scam warning October 10, 2007 Web User An email offering a puppy for adoption is the latest variation of the 419 scam Security experts are warning of a new email scam originating from Nigeria offering you the chance to adopt a puppy. The emails, which have a photograph of the dog attached, are supposedly sent by a couple on a Christian mission in Africa, who have a Yorkshire Terrier who isn't coping with the heat very well. However, the scammers behind the email are attempting to extract financial details from recipients in the latest version of what has become known as the '419' scam. The number 419 relates to the area of Nigerian law that these financial tricks are contravening. Like many of these scams, this particular one is characterised by the poor use of grammar. Part of the email reads: "I and my Husband have now decided to give her out on Adoptioto [sic] someone that can give her a good home and take very good care of her. She's a very loving puppy, she will be a good companion. If you know you can take very good care of her do send me a reply back through my email address below or you can give me a call so we can discuss on phone." However, by targeting animal lovers, this particular fraud aims to attract a whole new audience, rather than the scams that offered large sums of money in exchange for bank details. "Most of us are probably all too familiar with the scam emails which claim you have inherited millions of dollars, or won the lottery, but this time the scammers are deliberately pulling on the heartstrings of animal lovers," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos. "The criminals are offering the pet puppy in an attempt to gather information from kind-hearted people who jump in to help. If you respond, the scammers will try and steal confidential information about you, or sting you for cash, and ultimately you'll be the one ending up in the doghouse," continued Cluley.
  22. I got a set for my MkII 2 years ago from a local shop and they are fine - I think they were £60 or thereabouts. They were from Sovereign Rotating Electronics Sovereign House, Christie Place, Durban Road, Bognor Regis, West Sussex. PO22 9RT Tel: +44 (0)1243 833420 Fax: +44 (0)1243 833421 I got the details off their website which looks hopeless from an ordering point of view - give them a ring HTH Dave
