Can you send me some words and possibly pictures so I can add that model year to the guide?

Glad it was of some use - I assume?

Did the IC come out ok?

Oh yes, it was still useful :thumbright:

I had the added complication of the winch in the way as well.

I took a couple of pics on iPad but not sure of quality.

Mine has an extra pipe going through the intercooler to radiator gap for what I think was the power steering cooler. So that made thinks interesting!
Was the pipe attached to the top if the IC by 2 rubber things? If so I have the same thing, not sure why mine has it and others don't?

Ah, now I might be able to shed some light on this!

I ordered a lower grommet for mine on Friday from the local Dealers - and there are two types - one for ones like mine and ones for yours and Bodsys (MY07+)

It is a fuel cooler apparently.

Didn't realise that was a fuel cooler, always thought it was a cooler for the power steering rack :shock:

Nor me - it was only when I was looking for something else at the dealers when the parts chappy said. I didn't really believe him TBH as I always assumed it was the PAS cooler - though the one on mine (PAS cooler that is) is just about three runs of pipe across the front. :roll:

Can't see mine at all at the moment to see which type I have, seems to be covered in swamp for some reason...:whistle:
