Water Ingress Service Processes

This is a very useful if not funny in a way. A genuine Land Rover Rectification Manual.

part time job or full time job

Now I know what I can do with all my spare time when not sewing. Of course I might have to cut back on sewing to address these issues on my collection. Then again, fixing any leaks takes away from the character with these s**tboxes.

Very handy information - I've printed it out already and as the old saying goes:

" A Land Rover is NOT a watertight container."

reminds me of an old LR joke that goes something like this...

The Land Rover Defender design team in Solihul got together recently to discuss ways in which they could make the Defender more air and water tight, so they could be on par with every other automaker on earth. They all agreed that Toyota's were engineered the best so they decided to go visit the Toyota factory to observe how they did things there.

After meeting with Toyota's design chiefs on the Land Cruiser assembly line and exchanging pleasantries, the Toyota engineers were observed putting a cat in each new Land Cruiser that rolled off the line. When asked what they were doing, the Toyota engineers explained that every night before they went home, they placed a live cat in each Land Cruiser, then they rolled up the windows and shut the doors. The next morning when they returned to work, if the cat inside the Land Cruiser was dead, they knew that he had suffocated and that they had done their job well.

The Land Rover engineers loved that idea and agreed to implement it the minute they got back the the assembly line at Solihul. Sure enough, once back at work the engineers put cats in all the defenders that rolled off the assembly line that day. They shut the windows, shut the doors and went home for the night. The next day when the engineers came back to work, they checked all the new defenders and saw that all the cats were gone.

Having just read it I can sum it up as "put clear silicone all over vehicle where it might be leaking."

Yes, but it does suggest the interesting concept that water typically enters through seams, panel gaps, and holes, as opposed to simply passig through solid materials like aluminum and glass.

Turning radius of the Titanic.....and just about as water proof!

Did you know that the Station Wagon rear wiper squirter line runs through the headliner. It can leak too.
