    Wipac rear light bases.

    Anyone suggest a source for these? Lenses are ok. There is a number on the lens 014030 and think they might be Land Rover but not sure which model. The lenses are 70mm diameter. Thanks.

    Thanks Graeme and Jon. A new master cylinder could be the answer. It would certainly make the car more driveable in traffic.

    Noticed that it was getting more difficult to select some gears and the bite point of the pedal to the floor was quite short. So thought might be air in the system and should bleed it. In any case it...
