    My favorite rover game. I am getting a progressively louder rattle near my tail pipe that I think is the catalytic converters ( I have no idea which). What is my best way to remedy this. Some other threads mention the magnaflow cats as a good and cheap replacement, others just eliminate them...

    What are the thoughts - can I push though (herpies) or am I about to die (death rattle) on the road? Sound seems to be coming from the transmission case and is best described as a nut in a tin can. When in idle, no sound but when moving forward in gear with gas, rattle starts and is heard...

    Does anyone have any recommendations to decrease rattle at the front of a 1986 defender bonnet? The hinges are tight and intact. The bonnet locking mechanism works well. The rubber bonnet stops are there but it seems like if they were thicker, that might help decrease the rattle. Any...

    Here's a weird one: BACKGROUND: 1. Ordered a rebuilt LT77 from Ashcroft. 2. 1 month and copious amounts of blood, sweat, and tears later, got it all in. 3. First test drive: Mysterious rattle, initially thought it was a loose washer or something in the dash, but upon inspection, coming from...

    So I have this very bothersome rattle that sounds like it is coming from the right rear. It is not the typical tire carrier noise (which is a more 'robust' sound), it is a very 'tinny' sounding rattle, almost like a heat shield would be, but I can't track it down... Every bump seems to make it...

    The OEM spare tire carrier on my NAS truck rattles against the third brake light carrier. The problem worsens the larger the spare you throw on there, and the real fix is buying an aftermarket carrier that solves the rattle and, more importantly, takes the weight of that spare off the rear...

    I am having an insane hood rattle. It visible warps and slams around, it broke off the hood prop and is the loudest part of the truck. It is only on idle and stops with the smallest amount of weight(putting my hand on it will stop it). Any thoughts on a solution? I recently took the hood off to...

    Finally got around to reupholstering the front seats. I installed seat heaters with the Exmoor techno cloth trim and rebuilt the seat frames. Not sure why land rover went with pressed in mounting ends for the frame bottoms, but both of mine were broken. After welding them back together, the...

    So I started out with a death wobble a couple months ago. Turned out to be the panrod bushings. Then it came back a couple weeks ago. Have just replaced both bearings in the front wheels and all 3 ball joints. Also adjusted swivel ball tension as mine was at "0". Other than "loose" steering...

    Ok so today I heard an alarming Clank followed by a rattle from under the 90. I'm not sure where or what it is, but when I coast it's really bad. It never happens when I'm accelerating and happens a lot more when it's cold. I attached a video for your keen ears...Thanks in advance for your help.

    The rear passenger side speaker of my D-90 ST rattles and vibrates when I play certain music. I don't think that it is the speaker itself because it is relatively new and if I hold the speaker box the rattle stops. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could stop the rattle or at least...

Both kits retail for $89.99 and we’re offering 10% off to D-90 Source members. You can get the 10% discount by...

    All summer, when the back wheels of the truck go over a bump, I'm hearing something that is best described as: 1. A stack of loose washers bouncing up and down on a bolt, or 2. Loose change rattling around It's very metallic, and only occurs when the rear tires go over a bump. I can't decide...

    Any one have experience with this stuff. I bought 100 sq feet of itf and it finally arrived. It is the thicker stuff so closer to the Dynamat. For those of you interested it was 160 including shipping on fleabay. So I opened it up and boy does it smell, it has that slight tar odor. Do all of...

    I know that RimmerBros and others in the UK sell LR spray paint colors but they will not ship it to the US. Does anyone know of a source on this side of the pond? ------ Follow up post added February 24th, 2011 09:58 AM ------ Nevermind, I found a local shop to make some in spray cans.
