Re: How to wire the cables from engine room to cabin?

I looked for an easy way to run wires from the engine compartment to the cabin - and didn't find one! You can't go through the main wiring loom with the rest of the wires because it's moulded on and has a 90 degree bend in it. So, in the end I made two new holes in the outer skirt of the wiring loom...

Re: Electric coolbox

You know LandRover do one for the DS? Way overpriced of course, but it is leather covered to match the interior (if you have black) , and can be used as an armrest in the middle of the rear seats as well as put in the boot.

Re: Locking car with bonnet open

Just be careful where you attach the negative of the charger. There is a 'sensor' directly attached to the negative post of the battery and you definitely want to be connecting to the other side of this rather than to the battery negative post itself. Even better, attach it to the chassis negative ...

Re: 3rd Service, 4 years old - spec required

If you go to https://osh.landrover.com And enter your VIN you will see your service history there. If you then use the 'servicing information' tab, you can enter which service you want based on your car, and it will display the full checklist of items a dealer would do on that service, which you ca...

Re: almost going to pull the trigger... but need a push

Which Pirellis, or all of them! I was about to change my original Goodyear Wranglers. Hi Mamil, How many k's have the Wranglers done? I've found my Wranglers are fairly quiet and have done 55,000k on them so far. Probably get another 25,000k from them. If the Wranglers are available when they are d...

Re: almost going to pull the trigger... but need a push

Excellent car, irrespective of the supposedly long service interval I am quite happy doing my 12,000 miles annually and having it serviced at that point. Had the car a relatively short time (9 months) and its been a 'peach' :) with only the rear boot struts a bit rattly in operation, but soon to be...

Re: Exhaust corrosion?

Yes, have been a few threads on here about it over the years. Some people got a new exhaust under warranty, but my dealer just touched mine up with some black paint. Doesn't bother me TBH, the exhaust isn't corroding, it's just a bit of flaking paint.

Re: "Low Battery, Please Start Engine" message....

JLR clearly haven't got their smart charging algorithms right yet! The battery isn't getting properly charged, so shows symptoms of Stop/Start not working, and then low battery warnings, and eventually the battery will die from chronic undercharging. Mine went through this slow death over a period o...

Re: Indicator tick

Personally I prefer the quieter tick of the MY16. When I get a loan car the loud indicator drives me nuts!
