    Front seed tank question

    Going to be very stupid here; but, if you have a front tank on a folding drill it balances lovely at the ends but weights the tractor down creating massive ruts if you are working on tender ground?

    Bmw X drive box

    Seems we have an issue with the the X drive box. This is the part where the drive is divided between front and back wheels on the X series cars but is not the same on the X5.

    Wandering Defender

    I've had a problem with my 2005 Td5 Defender. The symptoms are similar to low tyre pressure, in fact I was so convinced I had a slow puncture that I got the local tyre dealer to removed all the wheels and water check each for punctures. Nothing! But when it had an MOT I got an advisory that the...
