Yes, I see your point, and it is one I have thought of. Having looked at the job in more detail, I am confident that if I had an angle grinder, a torque wrench and some ramps for the car, I could do a good job (I found some instructions on the net too). However, whether or not I would trust the job with my life (or more importantly, the life of anyone I was carrying) is a different story.
I would swap a few beers for some local help (I do infact owe one forum member a few beers for his never ending knowledge of my land rover, and my yamaha outboard!) but I am aware of how busy other people are, and don't wish to be any more of an imposition than I already am!
So, I've bought the part from land rover, and the garage is doing it on Thursday!
Nasher, the landie is sitting outside my house in pompey.
