England 2011 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Santorini Black
Red Triangle

SWMBO just got home and said there’s a red light on! WTF! Had a look and it says don’t drive, pull over safely. Checked the ACE reservoir and it’s low so got a leak. It on the drivers side.
So the dilemma is do I call assistance now or wait till the morning? I have the extended warranty TG. Nearest LR dealer is Yeovil and they will be closed now so don’t know where they would leave the car?
What do I do? Help. MY11 Autobiography supercharged. Santorini Black. Monaco interior. Rear screens. Privacy.

Just put some power steering fluid in the dynamic response, once topped up the fault will clear. Very common for the adaptive rollbars to leak.
Top up, keep an eye on it, then see if warranty will cover. MY12 RRS HSE

Tried that. The fuild is coming out by the drivers side. The warranty better cover it. It costs enough! Think will leave it till the morning to call. They will only leave the car outside of dealership. Still can’t believe the missis never thought to bloody pull over! Mind you I’ve had it eight years of trouble free motoring and it’s been a joy. It’s been perfect in every way. Oh well it is the first thing to go wrong. MY11 Autobiography supercharged. Santorini Black. Monaco interior. Rear screens. Privacy.

Usually, the front pipes corrode, rust through and leak

Sounds like a corroded/split pipe. Apparently they can be a basket to swap, due to corroding into the connector blocks.
Hope the warranty company does their job. MY12 RRS HSE

It’s the Land Rover warranty so hopefully it will cover. It does say suspension is covered. MY11 Autobiography supercharged. Santorini Black. Monaco interior. Rear screens. Privacy.

Micky do you think that would be covered under the Land Rover warranty? Not sure where to send it now? Main dealer or indy? MY11 Autobiography supercharged. Santorini Black. Monaco interior. Rear screens. Privacy.

Phoned LR assist at 07.00 and they said between 08.00 and 10.00. Got to 08.30 and got a call to say there are very busy and it will be 10.00 / 12.00! Well that’s my day knackered. MY11 Autobiography supercharged. Santorini Black. Monaco interior. Rear screens. Privacy.

United Kingdom 2012 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Orkney Grey

LR Assist is the AA isn't it? Or did they change providers? If the AA's vans are all busy on AA stuff then you wait just like anyone else, sadly.

A few years ago when my TDV8's turbos blew, LR Assist took my word that it was unfixable at the road side and arranged a flat bed directly. Took me home and then the Assist guy came out the next morning to assess and arrange transport to a dealership for repairs. I don't know if they're still as helpful/accomodating. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed
