    Top of Door Panel Damage

    The top of the doorsill material is wrinkling up. It was a bit wrinkled when I picked it up 2 years ago, but worse now. I don’t think the sun is helping. Anyone else with the issue? Solutions? I’ve thought about getting the Melville & Moon seat covers and asking for a piece of material to put...

    Dealership Multi-Point Inspection INSANE Recommendations!

    A little update worth just over $10k. Took it to an independent exhaust shop. They don‘t believe it needs manifolds, but does need new catalytic converters. This for about $4200. Still a lot of money, but much better.

    Quick Brake Change Tool Question

    I was about to change my front brakes when I got to the calipers and discovered that none of my flat wrenches were actually skinny enough to get on the inner part of the nut. I want successful tracking down a skinny wrench (15mm?) at Lowes either. All my wrenches are Craftsman. Any specific...

    Ha! I think that’s included with the exhaust work! At least I sure hope so

    Dealership Multi-Point Inspection INSANE Recommendations!

    I might do myself, but I'm deep into selling a house, buying a house and building a bathroom along with a promotion at work so I might punt to a trusted shop with parts I've purchased.

    I did notice a little wobble suggesting warped disks occasionally, so picked up EBC pads, rotors and new sensors as recommended by Lucky8.

    That’s an insane amount of time. I am certain you did it 100% correctly though. Besides the DTC I rarely notice anything. On rare occasion I’ll notice a bit of what I believe to be exhaust leak noise. I didn’t think this was an issue with these cars. And possibly more work then swapping the engine??

    I looked up that part number and it doesn’t show as a fuel pump so I really have no idea. The number does not match the correct fuel pump for and LR4.

    I dropped of my LR4 the other day for the fuel tank flange repair. A couple interesting things from that convo - I asked if they would check and advise in the DTC I am getting regarding air fuel mixture and they said sure, for $209. I said I pass, thanks. They then did it anyway (for free) as...

    LR4 5.0 V8 - recent timing chain service with 4 new camshaft adjusters - still seems somewhat noisy??

    I think it’s hard to judge actual volume from a video and my seem louder than it is? My 2011 sounds similar to your recording at times, but varies somewhat and isn’t what I would call loud. I think I just accept it’s a bit noisier engine than the LX470 I had.. ok, way noisier but with 100 more...

    Gobi Rack Install Question - help needed...

    Waiting on my Gobi rack to be shipped next week. What was the end result of your install? Did you have to buy parts?

    SAD ENDING TO OUR LR4

    Beat me to it... Buy it back and part it out if you have somewhere to put it and time to wrench parts off.
