Webasto fitted but not yet operational

Yesterday, I took the GLR Freelander to Auto Electrical Services in Tamworth to have the Fuel Burning Heater Kit fitted.

Unfortunately I didn’t communicate the fact that, when I asked for the kit to be plumbed in,  I also wanted the fuel line connecting as well. My mistake!

AES have done what looks to be an excellent job. I’m really annoyed with myself for not telling them to install the fuel line as well. I would have gladly paid another hour’s labour to get this done! As it stands, I now need to get under the car and install the line myself. No fun in this weather!

The jobs left to do to get the FBH operational are: –

  1. Plumb in the fuel line and pump (difficult)
  2. Mount and connect the ambient air temperature sensor (easy).
  3. Mount the silencer to the exhaust (moderate).
  4. Wire in the timer and the remote start via SMS or ring up (moderate to difficult).

As always, we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, if anyone know of a garage/workshop with 4 post lift, ramp or inspection kit we could borrow or hire for a day, please let us know in the comments below.
