    Bigger tires on an LR3.

    I was surprized how well that sealant that is installed in vehicles without spare tires works. I have a little chevy cruze eco(no spare). I got a big chunk of metal in a tire too close to the side wall to fix. You use the compressor that comes in the kit to push the sealant into the tire. I was...

    Bigger tires on an LR3.

    What did you do about a spare? This truck had a space saver and the owner wanted 5 of the 265/65s. Its tight for sure, I think I would go a little smaller just so I could stuff the spare. I had to take that plastic shield out of there too to make enough room. Truck drives great with those on it.

    Bigger tires on an LR3.

    Deflated it slides right in. I only put about 20 lbs in it cause its going to push on the ear that the rear toe adjuster mounts to.

    Bigger tires on an LR3.

    I'm putting some bigger tires on an LR3 and I think that harness in the left front wheel well is going to get destroyed if the tire contacts that area when turning right. Anybody deal with this before? Thinking about peeling the inner fender liner out and finding it a home up there.

    Rover's going Chinese

    Hate to say it but this little back door affair started a long time ago. Volvo was sold to a company in China. We already bought all our Evoque and LR2 drivetrain components. Not sure but I believe they bought them assembled engine and trans on a front cradle. Land Rover sold the rights to the...

    Front Axle Adjustment Leaking Seal

    There’s a tool and a process that aligns the knuckle on the lower ball joint. I’m guessing the adjustment isn’t correct. It invokes torquing the lower ball joint until that bore the bearing rides in is aligned.

    4.0 V6.

    I’m working on a 4.0 6 cylinder in a LR3. I’m always surprised when I open the hood and see that little rascal in there. Now that I need to fix one I realize how little we all know about this engine. There’s all kinds of conflicting info out there, and confusion about the actual variant this...

    Rear Differential rebuild kit for Disco 5??

    What you want is trade assistance. But maybe that’s just not going to work if it’s got a lot of miles. But I would agree they won’t buy it. But if they sold you a new one they would give you a good trade price.

    Rear Differential rebuild kit for Disco 5??

    Here’s the other thing Wheats. I’ve learned over the years that car companies buy axles and systems from other companies. While Land Rover doesn’t sell the individual parts to fix that axle. Someone sold them to them. Another thing I’ve learned over 4 decades in dealerships is that the good...

    Rear Differential rebuild kit for Disco 5??

    Make them trade you out of it. If it’s still under warranty they should be making payments for you. I’m recently retired from Land Rover. I was a shop foreman / dispatcher in the end. What you’re experiencing is the reason this car company is going to fail. A good dealership would be working...

    Almost scammed last week

    This guy knew the technology. We talked about the all keys lost programming. But when I pissed him off and he left his script he was pretty obviously Indian. I guess what you all should know is that if someone claims to have a version of Pathfinder and SDD that will run without being hooked up...

    Almost scammed last week

    This week I had to scramble to come up with an option for my scan tools. Im on some page that guys are talking about the stuff and I started talking to them about what they use. So dude gets in touch with me claiming he’s selling a version that locksmiths use to avoid paying for a Topix...

    Land Rover Scan Tool

    I registered to use the Topix website as an independent user. You can rent the place like a cheap hotel. By the hour, by the vin, by the day, just the service info, programming is broken down the same way. Or you can have it all for some stupid 6500 for all year. So what I decided to do is...

    Land Rover Scan Tool

    Now that I’m gone from Land Rover I’ve lost my log in and no longer have access to Topix and none of JLR’s diagnostic systems run without being logged into Topix. So now that I’ve lost all that I had to scramble to come up with a new system. I need to be able to interface with new Rovers so I...
