  1. Brake Pads

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Are there any "better" Brake pads to buy than the factory brakes? I need 4 new brakes and the dealership quoted $2400 for the full kit and kaboodle. FYI I have 30kk miles on my 2015 RRS Supercharged and this is my 2nd brake change I need. AKA third pair of brakes going on the car. Jay
  2. Range Rover Sport L494 DIY: Brembo Brake Upgrade

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi all, I have read a lot of threads regarding the retrofit of the bigger Brembo brake calipers that are standard on the supercharged/autobiography/SVR L494s. In case you haven’t read elsewhere, they are indeed a bolt on upgrade. Assume this is similar if not identical to the L405 as well. I...
  3. Safety Recall P017 Brake Vacuum

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Morning Guys, Can any of you Gurus tell me from the attached photos as to whether the above recall has been done on my car? Landrover say it was done but I'm not sure, I thought if done it should have 2 pipes going to the vacuum pump, not one? I have the bubbling in the pipes/servo and a hard...
  4. Removing brake caliper with pipe and hose attached

    Range Rover Classic
    I am looking for some pointers on removing a 17mm bolt that sits right below a brake pipe on my 91. I am trying to remove the bracket so I can keep the pipes and hoses attached when I lift the caliper off. I cant get anything in the tight space and with the coil spring being right there. Any...
  5. 2008 brake questions

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    first post .. always awkward... I think I am in the right place but my wife has a 2008 LR RR with the 4.2L Supercharged engine. Dealer quoted me > $500 for the pads - front and back. When i search on the 'bay or @mazon or whatever I find the pads for a fraction of that. Does that sound right...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Yesterday after a sudden brake the ABS and Brake lights came on my car, I stopped the car turn it on/off and they went away just for a short while. The brakes, rotors and sensors were changed less than 3000 miles ago. I started the cat today and turn the wheels lock to lock left and right the...
  7. What size fittings and line for fabricating P38 brake lines?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I was told today by three different vendors that the steel brake lines are no longer available for P38. What size steel line and fittings do I need for P38? Any sources in the US would be appreciated. I know where to get the tools for bending and making flares, but I need the actual raw material...
  8. Left brake stop lamp always slightly on?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Left brake stop lamp is always on just a little bit - park/headlights off, brake pedal not pressed - that lamp is slightly lit, just slightly. Generally can only tell it's on at dusk/dawn. Figured this might be a side effect of a possible factory hack to get the third brake light to work, but...
  9. 2010-2012 Range Rover S/C - Brake Pad Life & Suggestions

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi Guys, A couple questions regarding the brakes on my 2011 Range Rover Supercharged. I need to place an order w/ RockAuto for some other parts and thought I might as well order some brakes pads (and rotors) to save on shipping while I am at it. So here are the questions: What type of pad life...
  10. Brake question.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I've got a 1999 range rover 4.0 SE just wanted to know if anyone has ever had this brake issue. Brakes were working fine and one day I noticed brake fluid on the ground. Looking under the hood it appears to be coming out the top of the resivior. I can sit in the drive way and pump the brakes all...
  11. Brake Proportioning valve reset?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Problem-- Lost all brake fluid out of front right caliper. I think this has caused some sort of proportioning valve to block off the brake line to either that wheel or the two front wheels. Still had brakes but very low pedal. Now it can't be bled and pedal just goes right down. Anyone...
  12. tach dies depressing brake pedal

    Range Rover Classic
    Gentlemen, Sounds odd, but when I depress my brake pedal the tachometer on this '95 RRC goes to zero. When I take my foot off the brake, the tachometer returns to the correct RPM. Starting the truck with foot off the brake, the tach is normal. Sounds as if the brake circuit is shorting the...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello folks, I've an issue with my brakes, in the last 12-14 months/12.500 miles I had to replace both my front brake discs on my RRS TdV6 (MY2007) 7 times, because they were warped. I know that brakes are an issue, especially on the TdV6, but that cannot be normal. Normally brake discs should...

  15. Range Rover Sport Brake Booster Replacement

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    My RRS with 7500 miles needed the brake booster system replaced. Fortunately it was all under warranty. I was hearing a creaking noise when braking and it was finally diagnosed as the brake booster. Just curious whether other owners have experienced the same and have had their booster systems...

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi All, I try to do as much work as possible, but some small things I would rather just send my vehicle to have done. One of which being brakes. I was talking to one mechanic who apparently specializes in RRCs, told me to completely to the job the "old school and right way" would be a 7 hour...
  17. Brake pedal feel (Brembo)

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Anyone else feel like their pedal travel is a little too long until anything happens? I have new(er) pads and new rotors, they’re OE LR. Approximately 5,000 miles on them. Has anyone bled the brakes on these beasts? Should I use a vacuum bleeder and will I need to use the IIDTool? Thanks 14’...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Recently, I posted on another thread about my L320 with some electrical problems. The current problem are with the DSC and Brake warning lights on. Also, the pump motor seems like it is not turning on and the ABS is signaling the front driver's side wheel to engage. All of these problems came...
  20. 2019 RR Sport TD6 Brake Pads

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Has anyone successfully used a low dust pad on a 2019 diesel? I’m trying to get the DiscItialia and running into some trouble. They are trying to source fronts and the rear pads fit but apparently the 2019 sensor is different. Does anyone know if a 17 sensor would work on a 2019. Brakeworld...
