I read some place that you can cut or file down the tip of the solenoid and then reinstall. Is that true.

I've no idea why you would do that. You can remove it with no downside. Put it away and then it can be put back in at any time if you want things back to original.

What is the big deal with sticking the solenoid in a box and keeping it? Some people like Bill like original spec, so it can't hurt to give it to the next owner.

I pulled the solenoid and now it works. The solenoid did not move when I had it plugged in and shifted to neutral. Thanks guys for all your help.

Nice! Glad that you got it worked out. Any luck getting the diff lock to engage or are you still futzing with that one?

Got the diff lock to engage but no light. Which I am ok with after owning the rover for 18 years I should know if it is engaged or not. Thanks again. This was my first time using a Land Rover forum and it was super helpful. Thanks again. Now onto the fix

The light is not actuated by the lever. It is actuated when the diff lock itself engages. The lever pushes on a spring. The spring pushes on the diff lock. You may need to turn corners both ways before the diff lock actually engages.
