I don’t have full Topix access but I wonder if this is linked:

Returning from holiday and found my fans were not working. Telephoned dealer to find out there was over a month wait they recommended that I call out the call out service engineer - which I did. He immediately knew the fault and lifted the bonnet and poked a long screwdriver in the air intake shaft. Seconds later the fans were working. He said the magnets stick after a period of inoperability. So far, so good.

Hi - thanks for this. For those of us needing a bit more detail, but likewise not willing to wait 2 weeks for a 5 minute appointment to get it poked :), any chance you can perhaps explain what the component is and what exactly did he/you do? Ideally a picture but only if it isn't too much to ask.

I know there are more fundamental issues here to be fixed, in the meantime I am hoping for a quickfix until I can squeeze a LR dealership appointment in the diary.

Thank you!
