  1. 5.0L Tensioner/guide replacement. Official zip tie method

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Please refer to this link for my experience doing this job. The same engine is used in both of these vehicles so the procedure applies to the Sport as well. https://www.rangerovers.net/forum/6-range-rover-mark-iii-l322/335252-5-0l-tensioner-guide-replacement-official-zip-tie-method.html#post2262376
  2. 5.0L Tensioner/guide replacement. Official zip tie method.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have just completed this tensioner/guide replacement on my 2011 L322 SC with 85000 miles on the clock by following the official JLR short cut method which uses a zip tie to secure the chain and it worked like a charm. I have come across a couple of threads on this forum and the Sport forum but...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have a L322 2007. Its got folding blade keyfobs and the ignition key is in the dash not in the console. I know there are a number of instructions posted on how to resync the keyfobs but nothing seems to work. I recently left the lights on and flattened the battery. Prior to this everything...
  4. Gearbox Oil Change Method

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Has anyone changed their gearbox oil by what I would know as the “Gibbons Method”. Method involves removing the pipes from the cooler, return goes into a tub of fresh gearbo oil and return into empty tub (pipes will need temporary extensions). Start up the car and watch the fresh fluid flush...

  7. PCRV valve - an alternate method stopping leaks

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Fellow P38 tragics, Like many others on this forum, my PCRV valve has leaked and brake fluid has damaged paint around the RH rear part of the firewall. Over the years the RH plastic guard liner has been damaged by leaked brake fluid also. I purchased a replacement PCRV, but the O- ring was...
  8. Oil change (suction method) MY2010-13 - Video

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    For the first time, over the weekend I changed oil and filter on my 2013 LR4 with about 23K miles, using a vacuum pump from the top of the engine. My previous 2 oil changes - I am going for a 7500-mile interval between them - had been performed by an indy shop at 7500, and the 15K-mile "freebie"...
  9. Interior paint-different method

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So I tried some of the suggestion of paint for the interior flaking. One was to dark and one was too silvery. So I combined the two by spraying the rustoleum metallic soft iron color then immediately giving it a light spray of duplicolor ms200 metal specks and voila, almost a perfect match...
  10. Best Method to remove 2011 RRS Lug nuts WITHOUT damaging the lugcovers

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Best Method to remove 2011 RRS Lug nuts WITHOUT damaging the lugcovers (in fact, it was a bit hard to actually remove from the lug) It was likely too big then--because it slipped and wedged. Also, impact drivers generally use 12 pt sockets. The RRS lug nuts play better with 6 pt sockets, so...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    When I start my truck in the morning there is an intermittent chirping from under the hood. I've had this happen before on another car and it was an idler pulley with a failing bearing. Any tips for diagnosing this at home? There are a couple pulleys (ha) in there and I'd like to know for...
