United Kingdom 2006 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Bonatti Grey
Definitive list of 'HOW TOs'

Hi All,

I think it would be handy to have a single post with as many 'how to' guides as possible as a first port of call before people ask the same questions over and over.

Here are a few I have found on my travels. I know there are many more but there is only so much time in the day.

This would have to be a group effort so if you guys can post links in here and I'll add them to the first post then maybe a mod can sticky it.

Here goes...

Disco 3 workshop manual online:

http://landrover.workshop-manuals.com/lr3/index.php?id=1

Obviously some of this will not be helpful when working on the RRS but some will be because of the shared nature of the components in both types. 2012 SDV6

MY 2011 tow bar electrics HELP

Hi, I have bought tow bar electrics from Duckworth landrover spares, VPLST0014. I am attempting to fit the loom at the passenger side behind the trim panel. I have got to step 8/9, and the instructions say to remove the section of loom and bin it, and replace with new loom.
Problem is I have a spare bit of loom which goes down to the bumper, and it is not unplugable. This is not the cable which is marked rear bumper and has the plug, but it is loomed in with the bit I need to remove.
Do I have the wrong part.
My car wiring loom has checked stickers dated 18/10/10, and was registered dec 2010.
Thanks in advance
