Which model of air compressor - by model and year?

Hi,

Is there an easy way to confirm which type of air compressor is fitted, without having to take it apart to have a look?

I have a 2007 HSE TDV8

Thanks

Jason

United Kingdom 2010 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Bali Blue

Undo the bottom half of the cover, if it's original there will be details stamped on the front cover of the compressor,,,, part numbers etc. I used to have a few pics of mine but must have deleted them, originals are Japanese made I think. The originals are made by Hitachi, but a popular choice if they have been replaced are AMK, which are a different shape. If you research both varieties you will see the difference. 2010 RRS, TDV8
bali Blue / colour coded
side steps / flappy paddles
black perforated leather
22" overfinch
heated everything, TV,fridge ...... now with gold calipers and mud flaps !( black mud flaps that is) !!

If the mounting bracket looks like this picture it is a AMK. The Hitachi bracket is completely different looks like second picture.

Sorry to jump onto this thread but I have a question .

The compressor on mine is an Arnott with brackets the same as first picture it appears to have been fitted around 2018 and would appear to have died .
My question is can I just replace this with an AMK and it would be plug and play .
Cheers

On a 2008 car I think the original compressor would have been a Hitachi, if I remember correctly when these were replaced by the AMK ones there was a fitting kit supplied with it which also included a revised type relay to be fitted and also needed a software update, not sure what was needed to replace the original with a Arnott one though.

Cheers

Cheers I’m just trying to do my homework before it goes into a local indy for a full health check .
I know the suspension has an intermittent fault and I’ve got a leak at the rear poss the anti roll bar or pipes .
So will take it from there
Cheers Davy
