  1. Wierd braking fault?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Having problems with the brakes on my '99 DSE, changed the ball joints last week, noticed a snapped reluctor ring so i also put 2 new CV joints on it, also 2 new sensors as i destroyed the old ones taking them out. Sensors are pushed so they touch the rings and within yards of me driving off all...
  2. L494 Feeling a slight shudder when braking

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Morning All I have just noticed a slight shudder when I brake (Feel it when my foot is on the brake pedal) No noise, no brake wear warning light on the dash. Have dug around online and have seen everything from warped rotors, balance the tires, need new brake pads, to replace caliper bolts...
  3. Scraping noise while braking in ice/snow

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I'm currently in the Kansas City area and recently there was a reasonable amount of snowfall that did stick to roads. Seeing that it's a Range Rover, I drive over the snow with confidence (no this doesn't mean I was speeding) and then when it comes time to brake in it, I hear an unsettling...
  4. Steering vibration when braking Supercharged RR

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Spent a lot of time searching through forums and youtube video's. Haven't found anything specific for 2012 Supercharged Rovers due to its different caliper design for the front wheels. I have started to get a steering vibration when I brake above speeds of 50-60MPH. I do not get any below...
  5. restriced proformance, emergancy braking, stability controll

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have just bought a 2010 range rover tdv8 it has started going into restricted performance mode. it only does it when going up hill accelerating. have plugged it into diag and the only code it comes up with is p023d (map sensor) so I took out both sensors and cleaned them this didn't work...
  6. Braking gremlins

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi all and a happy new year I have an intermittent problem whereby sometimes when I brake it feels like the pedal sticks, and then when I push through the sticky bit with a bit of extra travel the brakes work fine and the pedal hardens up. Also I have recently started getting an ABS fault...
  7. Left rear brake not braking sufficiently (LHD 2.5TD, Y2000)

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    My Range has been standing for a long time, now it's time to reactivate it. I have to get it (MOT) approved and as I drove a test drive yesterday, I noticed the left rear wheel isn't braking as well as the others (the rust isn't worn off as much as at the other disks and it doesn't get as warm...
  8. 07 supercharged popping from front under slow speed braking

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I just swapped out pads from ceramic to composite 2 months ago and the problem started immediately. under slow speed braking there seems to be a metallic pop. I thought it could possibly be the suspension somewhere, but even with the car stopped adding just a bit more pressure to the brake or...
  9. Extreme Vibration / Steering Shimmy under braking

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello, I've recently (April) purchased a 2010 Range Rover Sport HSE (Facelift) 3.6 TDV8 which is a brilliant car but has had the dreaded shimmy / vibration under braking since I got it. I've done a reasonable amount of remedial work myself & other garages and I've still got the problem so I'm...
  10. steering shudder when braking

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I get a shimmy in the steering when braking hard at 80 km/hr. Sounds like a classic Range Rover death wobble but the damper has it under control. Anyone got any ideas? Is there something I can tighten or adjust?
  11. Pulsing steering wheel between 45 & 55 while braking

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Just installed new rotors & pads to fix the shaking wheel while braking. Still same problem! Control arms looked ok bushings only just starting to show wear... What are some possible causes? 2012 Range Rover Supercharged 58k miles
  12. ABS Braking Issue

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I have an odd one that I so far cannot diagnose. Working on my ’99 4.6 with 215k miles. The issue as best I can describe is that it seems the ABS is activating under normal braking conditions. The pedal gets a bit stiff and the light vibration is felt, although no lights. This first started...
  13. Driving Style Re: Braking

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have a theory I need some help with from other L322 drivers. Two questions: 1. Do you normally brake hard or "late" as you approach stop signs/lights or do you start braking early and keep even pressure up to the stop 2. Have you ever had the transmission thump when you accelerate from a stop...
  14. Cam shaft sensor & High speed braking

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Two issues. '12 RR Supercharged 50K miles 1. Random yellow restricted performance warning. Turns off after a few minutes. Need to turn off vehicle to regain normal performance. No check engine No red warning. Illuminates maybe 1/5 times with full power acceleration. Dealer found no faults...
  15. RR rough running, shaking when lift off and braking

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Long time lurker, second time poster `8) I've done a fair bit of searching on this, and am now just confusing myself, so thought I'd open a thread and get some advice on the exact issue. If I've missed something in my searching that's the same issue, my apologies, and please do direct me...
  16. Engine braking

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I have not previously driven an automatic off road so I am having to develop some different techniques. One thing that is a real concern is the poor engine braking. With my old classic, it would idle down the steepest hill but the P38 runs away in low low so its doing 1500 rpm on any sort of a...
  17. Weird noise when Braking, after braking and turning

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So this is a new noise that I've been hearing. I'm going to do my best to describe it, its a 2012 RRSC. At first I thought the screeching noise was coming from the speakers, it comes right from the center of the dash. Then I hear it when I break lightly or heavily sometimes, but it continues...
  18. Clunking noise from the front on sudden braking

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi all, I have a RRS 2008 2.7 HSE which makes a clunking noise coming from the front end if I brake suddenly or drive over uneven road. Please can someone tell me what the most likely cause is and what it is likely to cost to fix. Is it a good idea going to the main 'stealers' with this problem...

    Hi all New to this forum so thank you for accepting me. Bought a RRS 3.8 hse on a 58 plate a year ago, only done 80k miles. Had an issue since I bought it and the dealer has not been able to sort it out and now the problem is worse and the other half won't drive it! The rear end is loose and...
