Wales 2011 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Lux Orkney Grey

Well I have just come back from a trip to Promec and they were really helpful. Quite an impressive set up as well. Ian the owner really seems to know his stuff. The large yard was packed with all kinds of RR's and Land Rovers.

He checked over my suspension and all seems ok so far, no obvious leaks or fault codes from the sensors. He was very thorough and did a full diagnostic, cleared the few that were on there (nothing major) and will check again in a few weeks.

Only problem is he tested my lower arms and I do have a bit of a knock Sad

Looks like that's going to be top of my to do list. Bit pricey though and uses the original LR parts and not the uprated ones recommended on here. So I need to have a think about that one.

Other than that my Sport got the thumbs up.

If you're handy with a socket set, just fit the Meyle HD arms yourself. Then, just take it somewhere for an alignment after.

What I noticed on that video although it may not be of any significance, is they fit the front bolt through the arm the opposite way to what both the workshop manual say's and screen on the hunter alignment equipment showing the operator how to adjust the alignment. On my own vehicle the front bolts were also fitted from the rear forward, although may be fitted different way round on the Disco for some reason as I think it is a Disco in the video looking at the side vent. As I say it may not make the slightest difference, may just be simply easier to torque the nut up from the front, but personally I would refit them the way they came out if they have not been replaced before.

Cheers
Col

I’m not sure if it was 2012 or 2014 that JLR starting putting all vehicle service records online - somebody here will tell me I’m sure. So if it has MD servicing then you can read all that has been done to the car at services from the Topux website. You will need the VIN IIRC.
Rule of thumb - “Sealed for life” in 21st century Land Rover speak means “until the warranty runs out’” ie life = 3 years 2020 Pangea Green 1st Edition D240 New Defender 110 is here and loving it

England 2012 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Autobiography Fuji White

I think it was 2012 but phased in, i.e. L405, L494, L319 etc. The L320 never made it. You can manually submit servicings to topix for recording action but they screen them before adding. I tried it once and gave up as it never got auctioned. Probably an idea LR never went forward with. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

Hi Kev

I would love to be able to do a bit of spanner work myself but I don't have the space or the equipment at the moment. I can tackle some basic jobs but having just watched a you tube video of a guy taking the body off a 2008 RRS and rebuild the engine, I would worry about messing stuff up.. very interesting to see under the skin of the car though.

'Frank Spencer' has a habit of turning up whenever I do DIY or mechanics if you know what I mean... Laughing Laughing Laughing Wink
