    How to add Bluetooth, etc., to 2006 LR3 HSE

    I just did this - for a grand total of $17 I now have "factory" BT streaming audio! $11 for BT, and $6 for a new AUX plug. This item fits the 3/8" hole perfectly: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LXOIVKI Could not be happier! Completely hidden, auto-on/off, easy connection, OEM sound quality...

    Lost key

    when you buy a new key at a dealer, you provide your VIN and then LR makes/sends a key for that vehicle. There may be independent shops that can do this for you also - I think there is one here in California who has done it for customers for less $ than dealers charge. I suggest maybe trying...

    Lost key

    Where are you located? I have never heard of the "2 key minimum". Also, any key ordered thru a dealer should be closer to $300/ea, and is VIN locked so would work 100% - no "ifs".

    Suspension Problem, I haven't one! LR3

    most likely - depending HOW cheap your eBay special was - you got a dud. what is the seller's return policy? What is damaged on your original? More than just o-rings I assume? I would trust a used/junkyard valve block over unknown brands, then refresh with a new o-ring kit. might save you some...

    2006 LR3 Heater Issues

    Some thoughts: - do you smell coolant? - is your level good, do you need top-ups? - is the engine overheating? - when was the thermostat last changed? - how is your water pump? (btw: you could still have trapped air, LR3s are difficult to purge)

    Way to manually engage/disengage the LR3's center diff/transfer case actuator?

    Doesn't selecting "Grass/Gravel/Snow" or "Rock Crawl" lock the diffs?

    Tow bar welded in? Need help!

    My spare tire is in right now, so can't easily get a look for you - maybe someone w/o a spare in can confirm? But the little pin you just circled is definitely not your "rusted plug of concern". That little release pin on the front (that pops the D-shape pin out) is inaccessible to welding once...

    Tow bar welded in? Need help!

    That's not the pin. Directly below your red arrow is a D shaped pin in a rectangular hole. Between the safety chain loops, very low on the hitch receptacle. That D shaped pin is the part that retracts. Seeing how crusty your seems to be, a few taps on the pin should maybe loosen it. Maybe try...

    3rd Row Child Car Seats - Need Advice!

    Inertia belts typically tighten on impact, or hard yank. I don't think they tighten when pulled or adjusted slowly.

    Pulled the trigger on an LR3 / Disco 3 HSE

    Just following the manual would be a good start? Castrol 5w30, every 7,500 miles. Or follow your friend's schedule/spec. Or use whatever GF3 5w30 you like. Mann, Mahle, Wix filters are good. Mine is getting higher mileage so I do Castrol GTX every 5k. And Wix for price/local availability.

    Drivers side window switch

    To help anyone else with this problem ending up here: I JUST did this last week. You must remove the door panel to gain access to remove the switch plugs. It is not hard, just 8 screws and a bunch of clips around perimeter. See: My master switches for the rear stopped working. I started by...

    LR3 Suspension Compressor

    Dealers also probably charge more for the compressor itself R&R is pretty straightforward - it won't take you 5-6hrs - unless something breaks Usually the little captive nuts, but hopefully your compressor came with them (RYH500170) Just make sure you have no leaks at the hose connections . ...
