  1. 2009 L322 SC Autobiography Brembo Caliper Bolts falling out

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Has anyone else had the two big bolts that hold the brake caliper to the axle fall out? I lost one about 2000 km ago and had it replaced then today the other one fell out, stripping the threads as it left. No brake work done recently so I can't understand why they would suddenly loosen.
  2. 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...
  3. Brake caliper locked

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi Everyone, I recently purchased a 2012 RRS. I noticed last week that there was a loud squealing coming from what sounded like my front, driver side, brake. I immediately got it back to my house which I was only about 3 blocks away. The car sat in my garage for about a week while I was out of...
  4. RAVE says not to lubricate the brake caliper guide pins

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    If you look at the directions in the RAVE manual for replacing the front brake pads it says to clean and inspect the brake caliper guide pins and replace if corroded but it specifically says not to lubricate them. I was taught and have seen lubricating the guide pins to be common practice...
  5. Sort of Stuck - Brake Caliper Bolt

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Here's one for the experts - what size 12-point socket fits the caliper holding bolts on a Ranger Rover L322 MY2010? The vehicle is on jacks; I have a 20mm and 21mm combo-wrench and the 20mm is too small and the 21mm is loose. Could it be Imperial? I thought the bolt was M12. Thanks.
  6. Seized rear calipers

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Interesting discovery today on my RRS. Last year I had a very bad vibration from the rear of the truck. I pulled over and was blasted by the heat from the passenger side rear wheel. Turned out the caliper had seized. Replaced the caliper with a rebuilt and left the same pads in that were hardly...
  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. Rotor rubbing on caliper brackets

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Just replaced my brake rotors and pads all round, and caliper brackets on the rear. When driving down the road, I hear a very gentle metallic rubbing sound. Its not the bearings. It appears that the rotors on the inside edge of all four are barely touching the inside edge of the brake caliper...

  10. 2014 L RR SC Rear Brake Caliper Compression

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Attempting a brake job and the front replacement went well. The rear brake replacement is not going well, car was put in brake maintenance mode and we have tried to compress the calipers with the piston compression tool. They will not compress far enough to complete re-install. We also opened...
  11. 18" LR3 Wheel rubs caliper 2012 HSE

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I have a 2012 RRS (HSE Lux) which came with the SC-style 20" wheels. After lots of research, I decided to track down a set of the old LR3 10-spoke wheels to mount with AT tires, which I understood should fit fine on my non-supercharged, non-Brembo equipped RRS. Got everything today, and upon...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So I got the brake light on the dash. I replaced the front brake pads rotor with no issues.
