    Anyone had to replace one yet?

    My NH has been on Dual fuel for over 6 months now, and so far so good. Every week or so it gets a run on Petrol, and the LPG system is one that starts on Petrol before switching over. The other day it started...

    My NH has done the same thing. It feels like a fabric material that's gone hard a brittle and is slowly peeling off??!!

    Did you have any luck with a solution???

    The weather strips have done the same thing on the side too....

    Ballpark $$ ???



    That I can do. I can even source the bolts, It's sourcing the Urethane that's proving to be difficult. I've even got use of the lathe at work so I don't even need the blocks cut to size or drilled. Some...

    MITSUBISHI = EXPENSIVE

    First try autObarn / Repco / Bursons / Supercrap first and check if Mackay or Kelpro make one for it, otherwise it's genuine only.

    Yeah, it's a bit of a catch 22. Either jam something in your window weather strip, or mount it to the mirror and hope your mirror springs have some good tension.

    But that's where the Coppa Rossa ones aren't too bad. They mount to the mirror...

    When I was retailing Trailer & Caravan parts, I wasn't (still not) a big fan of those mirrors, mainly due to the fact they clamp a gainst your weather strips. The best ones I found were the ORA brand www.oraproducts.com.au Their bracket can stay...

    1500Kg actually. And it also allows the recovery point to be reattached on top of it.



    Depending on brand, they all bolt up under the rear of the chassis rails into factory made threaded holes, and some also utilise the...

    In an NH, the upper red lenses on the body work taillights are "fog" lamps. The switch above your factory cruise control switch activates these, but only when your other lights are on.

    I've modified mine. I found the fog light...

    Depends on whether you take the suspension arms out and take them somewhere to replace the bushes, or you take the whole vehicle in for them to do the lot.


    I thought that a steering damper was mainly good for heavy off-road work,...

    Unless you've got a problem, they will eventually drop out/disengage. Sometimes they take longer to do so, and it also depends how far you've been driving in 4H.

    Is it a GLX or GLS?
    For a 'top of the range' GLS with that few K's, it seems a bit too cheap unless the owner has a legit reason for a quick sale.

    The driveline in these things is supposed to be good for 500,000k if kept regularly...

    Having worked for autObarn, I was always of the opinion that all LPG backfires were caused by a faulty or worn ignition components. However, having concerns about my own LPG installation I asked the question of my chosen LPG installer before I had the...

    Factory specs are usually quoted at the flywheel, this s/charged vehicle is probably stating Rear Wheel Kw. Roughly calculated through drivetrain losses, we're looking at around the 200Kw at the flywheel.

    As far as "bolt-on",...
