200tdi or 300tdi Engine Cover

Looking for a 200tdi or 300tdi Engine Cover. The rubber one that sits on top of the valve cover gasket.
Thanks,
Jon

I'm curious if they are all bling or if they make any difference in sound dampening? I think they might fit a 2.8, but if they are only for bling then I have no interest myself.

That. I have one but I run without it, when they get wet they will hold the water for a while unless the engine is running till they dry. They give a nice finish touch and significantly lower your engine noise.

You couldn't be farter away from the truth.

On the red 110 200tdi I put the cover, and reduced the noise considerably at idle and high speeds ( well LR high speeds ..lets say 25mph downhill ;-) )

They are made out of rubber not plastic, they are heavy and stay in place on their own weight. ( had a foam underneath the rubber )

Best option I added to the truck

Mark, I've ordered it on ebay.uk from one of the usual wreckers, and paid maybe $ 75.00 shipped.

I've never seen the foam type either...are those a later model cover?

Also, does anyone know if the Disco and Defender 300Tdi covers are identical?

foam is glued to underside of a black plastic shell. Shell is pretty soft and flexible itself.
The foam on several trucks I have had has been oil logged which given that tdi valve cover gaskets leak if you don't change them when you adjust the valves every 12k is probably why these covers drop the foam or get thrown away all together.

Off topic, but I replaced my valve cover gasket and still get oil on the cover. Sort of drives me crazy but can't figure out from where...maybe the cap (but I've replaced that too).

Adam,

ERR3276.

LRDirect, Craddocks, etc.

Makes a noticeable difference.
