Just had my Freelander back from a cambelt change from the dealer and was phoned by the receptionist to tell me that I need, among other things, a diff locator. She wasn't able to give me any more information and I had to get off the phone for various reasons anyway. So before I call them up on Monday to ask what exactly it was that was knackered I was wondering if any of you folks could tell me something about a diff (differential) locator. Also, can anyone recommend a source of cheap LR parts?
- the line was poor and you could not make out what the receptionist was saying, or
- the Freelander has a very tiny diff that needs to be located with a special gizmo, or
- the receptionist was a blonde
I'd prey it's option one, as the other two point to a rather alarming condition of British engineering and the people in its service.
So, would she mean "diff lock" or "diff locker" or still something else?
A strong possibility was that the possibly blonde receptionist also didn't know what she was saying. Not diff lock-there isn't one on mine anyway.
Ah... the state of British Engineering... is there much engineering left here by now? Its so depressing looking back over the last half century. Car industry- what's left of it about to be taken over by the Chinese (Rolls Royce cars- a joke before taken over by the Germans) Aviation industry- well, much depleted, but struggling on, thanks mainly to Airbus Industrie. Now Rolls Royce aero engines- still a world beater. F1 racing- ditto. Bugger me, though, there must be something else we're still good at. Ship building- nah- that's gone, too the French and the Germans build our ships for us. The workshop of the world, that's what they called us once, would you believe. The Japanese build our electronics for us. And our cars and motorbikes.
Tell me I'm wrong, somebody, please.
just a quick about the MG Rover situation - Pheonix Venture Holdings, who currently own and run Longbridge and operate as MG Rover will keep ownership of the Longbridge factory. MG Rover will become a joint venture, sales company, owned 30% PVH and 70% by SAIC (Chinese co) - rough figures. Initially the chinese will not buy out PVH, but this maybe because of a clause in the BMW deal which would mean paying back -
We should not knock MG Rover who are doing a great job with very limited resources in a very tough market place - have any of you tried the Rover 75/ MG ZT ? Great cars, and fantastic value 2nd hand.
No, my sadness is to do with the country as a whole and its determined slide into mediocrity. From excellence to has-been. British Leyland after the war was pitiful to behold, turning out crap while Japan, Germany and the US walked all over us industrially while unions and management savaged each other's jugulars. It will be a long climb back up.
