Just found the problem with the flashy green 4x4 light,it was the tiny vac hose right at the back - bottom of tee piece. Happy days.

Just done the pitman arm steering idler and track rod end today waiting on diagnostics guy to see if his reader will connect to abs control box (fingers crossed).

10 days into L200 ownership...all pretty good so far...

Attended 2 cricket tournaments and rugby training...carried the kit to tidy up family graves, took the eldest to his lawn mowing "job" (twice - after the mower "breaking"...stalled due to jammed with grass....learning occured for him...!), the Good Lady had a drive of it...rather likes it, actually!

Repairs (So Far)...
O/S/R Indicator - earth wire broken off bulb holder...
Front foglights not working - complete rewire due to previously being wired up in a circus, at night, by colour blind clowns obviously...
Washers stopped working - poor connections to pump...
Electric windows now working - poor connections to switches...
Rear Difflock working - poor connections to switch...
Touched up a bit of paintwork...
Wash and wax...

Then, this morning jumped in - ignition on....no start....power probe out, and guess what...poor connection to solenoid trigger on starter...connections re-made...found metal EGR pipe split on start-up...

Mods So Far...
Fitted spotlights to the front, worklights and CB aerial mount behind the cab, fitted bluetooth phone kit and replaced stereo with DAB. Fitted CB, phone holder and extra power sockets (inc power socket in load bed for roof beacon).

Work to Follow...
EGR delete and cooler removal...
4 x new tyres on order...
Complete exhaust (inc de-cat) on order...
Full service and cam belt(s)...
Sort out "No 4H / 4L lights" on dash (no flashing - just NO lights!) - wondering if it may be another incarnation of "poor connections..."...
Fit 12S towing socket (and replace damaged 12N socket whilst at it...)...

Yup - all good so far...

Put on a K&N air filter to replace the well used and filthy paper filter that had likely been in there since new...

And stuck on the obligatory free K&N sticker that they give you 😁👍

I've done nothing to mine , parked it in a barn about two months ago and closed the door behind me , at some point I've got to make the decision to do the welding or move it on for spares 😢

Friday evening - replaced my reverse light bulbs with some LEDs - what a difference - i can see behind the truck at night!

Also replaced my first-fit shite work lamps for these off eBay (£7.99 for the pair) - superb addition! (the little bar LEDs inwardly are slaved to the reverse lights.

@krutly - you were 100% right on a few counts.....Yup, the 4WD light not working was indeed due to the bulb being removed due to it flashing....goes solid green in 4H and 4L though...and yup, truck responded extremely well to a good service - relatively flies along now...!!! Just the timing belts left to do on the service (and replacing tyres and exhaust)....

@123hotchef - also found the "missing" engine management light....the bulb was in the door pocket (with the bulb from the 4WD light)......

Truck worked really well down the Cricket Club working party on Saturday...the tractor was "buried" in the garage so she got pressed into service moving bags of loam, fertiliser and grass seed on to the square...I've been told me having a truck has "guaranteed my place in the 3s next season".....!

Last night - New exhaust - front pipe back (including decat pipe) - much quieter, smoother and more torque - now pulls up my "test hill" near home in 3rd.....(exactly the same as my old Disco did when i removed its cat too...)...

Front pipe to manifold came off sweet as a nut () - but bloody rear section fought me all the way to fit....

Towed the caravan for the first time, back from storage to home (for damp repairs.....)

4 new tyres this Friday...then just the cam belts and flashing 4wd lights to do...3m of vac pipe sat on my desk (with some dash bulbs to replace few missing...)...
