    Sticky new caliper

    Hi all, I have a Discovery 2 Td5. Had my rear offside caliper changed a few months ago (September I think?) and it's already gone through a set of pads. Nearside has plenty of life left. Caliper was brand new fitted by my local specialist. I'm wondering if dodgy caliper or something else?

    Wow! 3.54 Diffs - now what?

    Bought some 3.54 diffs from a forum member a couple of weeks ago (Wally - a gentleman and a pleasure to meet). What a difference. Firstly the fuel economy - my weekly commute is about 110 miles from the Fylde to Shropshire, around half of which is on the M6. With the 4.7 diffs I'd be pushing it...

    Parking Brake Failure - Not covered by warranty?

    Hi! Just 8-12 weeks ago I purchased my first Land Rover (a Range Rover Sport HSE, 2011). I purposely selected a vehicle still inside warranty and have also purchased an extended warranty product, and I am very happy with the performance and comfort until now. So, the parking brake recently...

    How Do I? Park Brake Module

    I had a problem with the electric park brake sticking on, which was sorted by my garage, but they told me the module would not reset, and a new one would cost nearly £1,000 fitted. Is this realistic, or is there another way to fix this? I'd really appreciate any advice.

    Brakes, Well, fitting sizes for studs into various components. 1993 v8 ABS

    Anyone know what size the female ports are on 1993 ABS 3.9 Vogue SE? Are they weird SAE things or some Umbutu prod-gauge, or just friction welded and then rusted away to burnt matches as they leave the factory? After trying to get the old girl in shape for a genuine MOT (The one supplied when I...

    Success rate of Clutch or Brake master cylinder overhaul ?

    Well - it had to happen eventually didn't it? Dribbles down the clutch pedal again. :( I've overhauled 1 brake master, then sold it soon after, and replaced 2 because of corrosion / wear. But with kits so cheap how many people replace seals and have a good success rate over a complete new...

    Uneven brake pad wear

    Hi Guys! I've just had to replace a disc and a set of brake pads on the right rear - again. As you can see the outer pad is worn to the metal. The strange thing is that the inner pad has basically no wear. It looks the same as it did when I fitted it a couple of weeks before Christmas. Any...

    Advice regarding old brake fluid

    Hello all, I recently purchased my first Landy, a '68 series IIA. I'm just fettling her up for the MOT. I'd like to completely replace the brake fluid and was wondering about the best technique to do so. Should I bleed the system completely, then top up the reservoir and re-bleed? Also, how...

    Backplates for 109 V8 Front Brakes

    I have a V8 in my SIII 88 and the braking is scary, even though all the cylinders, hoses and shoes have been replaced recently. Therefore I'm thinking of replacing the front brakes with all new 109 V8/6cyl kit. I've found all the parts I will need online, apart from the brake backplates...

    Hi all, This is just some info for peoples future reference regarding Td5 bulkheads and servos... Although people seem to think the series servo wont fit on a TD5 bulkhead because it will be too close to the clutch pedal box and/or steering column this is not correct. It is very very...
