  3. Evoque 2015 Brake Maintenance Mode

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    I changed brake pads on my wife's 2015 Evoque. The front pads were a breeze. However, I could not install the rear pads. I got the rear brakes to open up (through ignition>pb switch. accelerator>ignition 2x), but I don't think I was properly in maintenance mode. The old pads came out, but...

  6. Distribution belt maintenance

    Range Rover Mark III / L322

  10. Pre-Paid maintenance

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Has anyone pre-paid for maintenance on a 2018? My vehicle should be delivered any day, but being only 2 months away from the MY19 hitting the street I thought I'd ask them to sweeten the deal with throwing this and some roof rails in. I'm assuming pre-paid maint is about a $3k value?
