I know I'm probably driving with computer technology from the dark ages, but am I alone in letting the vehicle systems boot-up by turning on the ignition and waiting for the systems-check to complete before firing it up? Definitely seems to result in fewer spurious error codes to clear.
Telwyn, I guess it depends on your anticipated use, but did you consider having stronger mounts for the roof rack, to bring the weight down to the waist of the vehicle, or lower? The upper portion of the body has a lot of flex in it and even the weight of a spare wheel on the roof can be...
Interesting! I guess they will be looking to clear the clutter around that middle section, where they currently have Evoque, DS and (arguably) Velar, all fitting slightly different parts of the same market.
That comment made me wonder about LR production/sales figures and surprisingly I see (from statista.com ) that the FL2/LR2/DS and the Evoque have consistently been LR's top performers with the RRS close behind. I guess perspective depends on where you are but the LR2/FL2 was a very successful...
Not a lot wrong with that list (although I'm not sure about keeping both FFRR and RRS), but I think there is a gap in their line-up for a slightly smaller SUV that is still family and off-tarmac capable. Of course, as a FL2/LR2 owner I have a certain bias here, but the Disco Sport was never...
It's often been said that Land Rover start their design works with a rattle, then build a vehicle around it! At least yours is easily identifiable and I hope you manage to get a fix. But for what it's worth, the sunroof on my 1993 Defender rattled too, but I just lived with it.
DortchRules, I'm glad to see someone else that keeps it simple! I've got an old-style enamel coffee pot and with the right grind it infuses and settles pretty quickly, leaving very little ground coffee in the cup.
Interesting! My recollection is of the series III having very light steering but I guess with modern tyres and a smaller steering wheel there may be a greater need for power assistance. Are you updating the brakes?
Looks pretty much like the pic in my old Series II, IIA & III Haynes Manual. All I remember is constant problems with play in the steering box and the huge expense of a new one...which I could never quite afford!
Could you mount the tank on some load sensors and simply use the weight of water as your gauge? Might be simpler than having to build-in additional plumbing for a sight tube or breaching the tank integrity for an in-tank sender unit.
