    Check Engine, P0447 Code

    Another update: Replaced the DMTL pump last night, still no good. I tore into the RF wheel well also, and found some corrosion caused by what appears to be battery fluid sloshing about on the trail (definitely switching my starting battery over to AGM soon). Removed the battery and engine bay...

    Check Engine, P0447 Code

    Just thought I'd post a quick update, since I'm still dealing with this... Checked the wiring and plug for the DMTL pump and cleaned everything up, per a few suggestions from other forums - no luck. Took the truck to the dealership and asked them to diagnose. Result was "you need a new...

    Check Engine, P0447 Code

    Hello all, I've got an intermittent (well more like I shut it off and it comes back shortly after) CEL, giving me the P0447 "Evap Vent Control Circuit Open" (or something very close to that) code on the IID tool. I've done a good bit of searching, and it seems that the consensus is a...

    Resetting Brake Pad Light?????

    Hey all, Here's how I solved this problem once and for all a few weeks ago... There is one sensor for the front, and one for the rear (front driver, rear passenger on US market cars, I believe). You can replace the sensors, as many folks have mentioned, and that should get rid of the...

    Hitch Receiver Parts?

    toddjb122 - You cannot order individual parts for the hitch receiver, aside from the handle/lock assembly. I had the same problem with mine (something inside seized, and I completely disassembled it), and when I asked at 2 different dealers, I was told that the only option was to order a...

    Tire Size Advice Please

    ncburch - I am not using the rod lift full time with the 285/60. Sometimes I will put it on when I know I will be getting into more serious wheeling, but generally its not needed with the 31.5" tires. I'm guessing you are somewhere near the max size that will fit on the LR3. I know I saw...

    Tire Size Advice Please

    I've had a couple sets of the Terra Grapplers in 285/60R18, and am currently running the Cooper Zeon in the same size. The Nittos were great out west (CO winters and wheeling were equally handled), wore well, weren't too noisy, and provided good all around performance. I switched to the...

    Online resource - exploded diagram?

    Do you mean the plastic shroud that covers the oil filter area? The thing that is replaced by a sump guard? I think I've got a perfectly good one sitting in the garage...

    Hitch Receiver Removal.... (different question)

    That will be one of its main purposes...to expedite beer retrieval from the bottom of the refrigerator. I'm too short to reach in there while it's inside the truck! @Mack - Thanks for the suggestion. I've checked out the Mitch Hitch, and it's insanely expensive. They want $660 for the hitch...

    Hitch Receiver Removal.... (different question)

    The entire internal locking mechanism in mine ended up being broken. I had 2 different dealerships look at it, and neither could fix it. Mine also happened to be off of the car when it broke, fortunately. LR North America stepped up and gave me a new one, free of charge. Full saga here. I'm...

    Hitch Receiver Removal.... (different question)

    Starting to sound like what happened to mine...everything seemed to be fine, but the handle just would. not. turn. I cranked on it pretty hard, and the plastic got a little "chewed out" by the actual metal rod inside, to the point that there was then some slop in the handle. Still didn't budge...

    Gas grade - 87, 89, higher?

    @Kelby - Hey man! Yeah, I mostly ran 91 when I was out there. Lots of people, including the folks at Flatirons told me I could run 85 or 87. I tried 87 a few times, but my mileage definitely was lower, and it just didn't feel "right" (mostly a perceived lack of power). Strange that it would...

    2006 LR3 HSE 45K MILES service at dealership

    Here's a link to a PDF version of the 06-08 LR3 maintenance schedule: LR3 Maintenance Schedule The 45k isn't too big of a deal, mostly a lot of checking things to make sure they are still ok, along with an oil change and some new brake fluid. The higher mileage services include things like...

    Gas grade - 87, 89, higher?

    This has been discussed many times, in many threads. I use 93 exclusively in my truck, especially now that I'm back at sea level. At higher altitudes, you can get away with a slightly lower octane (or so I have been told). I see better mileage from the higher octane for sure, and the truck just...

    Yet Another Tow Hitch Problem

    tlt, We've really just gotten started on it, and its not an urgent thing for me (since LR sent me a shiny new hitch adapter), so it may be a little while before its complete. As of now, the bushing has been machined and the "bracket" that fastens it to the recovery loop has been...

    The obligatory "Show off your LR3' thread

    A couple of pics from my latest trip to the Blue Ridge mountains area: Not a ton of real "off-roading", but we drove a few hundred miles of gravel and 2 lane scenic roads. Really beautiful area.

    Yet Another Tow Hitch Problem

    Another Update I know it's been a while, but another update on this... When I took the hitch to the other Land Rover dealership in town, the GM was pretty unhappy to hear that nothing could be done to fix it. He happens to know my wife, since she is the area Audi rep, and told her he would...

    best "touch-up" paint for scratch?

    newrover, I would try simply buffing them out with some good wax, or perhaps a little rubbing compound. The wax will at least hide the scratches a little. For chips, etc. I use the touch up paint pens available from Atlantic British (my truck is Java Black). Otherwise, wear your scratches...

    Yet Another Tow Hitch Problem

    Roy, Thanks for the reply. I've checked out the pictures, etc. on the site, but just couldn't figure out how that thing was mounting to the recovery point behind the bumper cover. A big bushing makes sense. I still don't like the idea of having that monstrosity hanging off the back of the...

    Yet Another Tow Hitch Problem

    Is the mitch hitch a permanent mount? Or is it removable, similar to the factory part?

    Yet Another Tow Hitch Problem

    Update... Stopped at the other Land Rover dealership in town yesterday (after disassembling and reassembling the hitch like 10 times trying to figure out what was wrong), and they too told me that it is "broken". Apparently, it seems that the mechanism that "fires" the locking pin when you push...

    Aux jack....so quiet

    Yup, this is a pretty common issue. The AUX jack in mine is considerably more quiet than other sources (CD, Sat Radio) in my LR3. I use an old *** Belkin iPod charger that has a line out with volume control built into the plug, and that seems to help a little. Unfortunately, my cable is starting...

    Yet Another Tow Hitch Problem

    It's very similar, but smaller and with orange keys instead of those ghetto folding ones. I've seen that video before, and I'm convinced it took about 20 takes for that to happen so smoothly. I usually have to kick the damn thing to get it to drop! I thought about just leaving the hitch on...

    Yet Another Tow Hitch Problem

    Hey Everyone, So I've got the stupid LR hitch adapter (old style), and I'm having some problems. A few weeks ago, I realized that I had left the hitch on all winter, and the lock had seized up. I took it into the dealer, and they replaced the locking handle. I was then able to remove the...

    Best cb antenna mount

    I'm also in this camp. I used a marine NGP (non ground plane) antenna, and mounted to an existing spot behind the driver's tail light. If you pull the light off, you will see a 10mm bolt that fastens a tab from the bumper cover to the body of the vehicle. I fabbed up a small 90 degree bracket...
