      Hi, Good or not so good to reach out again..:)The lower brake lights are out and I have no codes in the computer. I went ahead and checked the bulbs which have been working fine for about 2 years. They were fine. Went ahead and replaced the break peddle switch with no effect. I think that I lost the lights when I used my HDC but can't be sure. The question of the day is where should I look next? Matt

      Hi bbyer,
      I have bought a Range Rover Sport 2016 and have already had continuous faults. I am contacting to see if you know of a solution or heard of the issue before.
      The issue has various faults on the dash which flick through each one every couple of seconds.
      1.Stability Control Drive With Care
      2. Emergency Brake Assist Not Available
      3. HDC Not Available System Fault
      4. ABS Fault
      5. Park Brake Fault

        Also the orange lights come up on the dash for ABS and traction control. When these errors occur, it is usually starting my car up and will sometimes disappear or stay on for a long period of time (weeks). While these errors occur, I lose power steering and cruise control.

        LR has had this car in and out of their dealership 5 times and I have only driven my car for a max 3 weeks since receiving in January. Each time I have been returned my car, they assure me the issue has fixed and then a couple days later the error/faults return.
        Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
        Please also note, I live in Australia so issues may vary if you live elsewhere.

      Assenmacher 8030 fan clutch shaft wrench and Assenmacher 8007 fan clutch holder.

      The two pdf's below are each a page from the Assenmacher catalogue that shows what is called the #8007 Fan Clutch Holder, aka the hoobie-doo, and also #8030, the Fan Clutch Shaft Wrench. That is the one required to unscrew the 36mm hex shaft, (reverse thread), the fan is attached too.

      These are Made in USA tools. I see that the #8030 Wrench is on eBay; the #8007 Holder, apparently not so, but can be obtained directly from Assenmacher via their web site, or ordered from a number of professional auto tool suppliers. The prices vary but seem to be in the range of from 30 to 40 dollars each.

      Re the link below, in the search box, just type in the model number, 8007 or 8030 and the part will appear.
