  1. 1993 SWB heated front windscreen timer location?

    Range Rover Classic
    My 1993 SWB has a heated windscreen, which is apparent from the filaments visible in the glass and the presence of the heated front screen (HFS) switch on the dash. When I depress the switch it illuminates, I hear the relay click under the driver's kick panel, and after one second the switch...

  4. Replacing fused leads on '93 SWB

  5. 93 RRC SWB- Ignition Switch - nearly left me stranded

    Range Rover Classic
    Howdy - wanted to post this issue and see if any of you fine people can comment or suggest what's going on. Once in a while, I'll insert the key into the ignition and it is just absolutely locked up - no movement at all. Each time this has happened in the past, I've monkeyed with it and...

  14. 95 SWB, rear output flange, studs or bolts?

    Range Rover Classic
    I changed the ATF in my transfer box today and happened to notice that the transmission brake drum had a bit of movement in it, so I picked up the rear axle and rotated the rear propshaft by hand and discovered all 4 nuts were loose and the bolts/studs were spinning freely when I tried to...
