It was said to have come from a JLR worker or just a bad rumour?
Who knows with JLR the way they have been playing....

Hi,

Has anybody on here heard of balance shafts needing to be replacing for a second time?
Mine had them done at 7k miles, the car now has 11k miles on the clock and what I first thought was the turbo getting loud is now starting to sound suspiciously like the first time when it was the shafts.

Typically the dealer can't fit me in until the end of April. :roll:
yep heard of a couple plus an Evoque having it twice , but also heard of folks just rejecting for replacement as they are entitled to do now it has reared its head again. They are allowed one attempt at repair, looks like this failed.


Well................After some dialog between the dealer and Landrover with the addition of some tests requested by Landrover they have agreed not to try and 'fix' the balance shafts again but rather fit a new engine.

The parts have arrived at the dealers so hoping to get it back next week!

What 'parts'?!?

Surely if they are replacing the engine, a whole engine should be there, not 'parts'!

Be interesting to see what they change - do you have any way of getting the existing engine serial number off the block? Or are they just going to carry out a low-level repair and tell you that they have changed the whole engine?

Hi,

I have been assured a complete engine is going in, the term 'parts' I guess could just be stating not only the engine but all the other bits and bobs, manifold gaskets etc that would also need replacing as part of a swap out.

I've been dealing with Landrover direct as well on this, if anything just to get a case number in case it goes down the rejection route.


Although, I have requested the new engine number so i can get the V5 updated ;)

Ingenium Balance Shaft inspection.



Presumably scoring just on the shafts = new shafts but any scoring in the shells = new engine?
Or maybe the shells can be extracted? They are shown quite clearly if you freeze frame between 47 and 50 seconds.
About where you hear the word "facked".

Yep I saw the outer race, but they should be able to pull and reinsert an outer race.
They should never replace just the roller and inner race. That’s bound to fail again.

So i'm currently in a lawsuit with JLR reaging the issue as i believe they have a duty of disclosure about the issue. Have at look at this response attached.
