  1. How to make yourself feel better after repairing a RR

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    My rear wiper stopped working (the washer never did work) which many owners will recognise as a fairly common problem. Having bought in a new (genuine) motor and a new arm + blade I tackled the job yesterday. Only suffered one finger cut prising the tailgate panel out of its locator clips. The...

  3. ** INFO ** Repairing Window Switchpack Switches

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    So, I've been intrigued for awhile about the issues that there are with window switchpacks - randomly failing, or switches becoming intermittent. Sometimes, yes a blast of contact cleaner works, or it works for awhile and then it starts playing up again. We've got a P38 in the workshop that we...
  4. Repairing keyfob, looks like broken+ terminal on board

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Anyone got any tips for repairing a keyfob? I think what has happened, is there should be a contact slide/bridge for the + terminal from the battery holder. I guess wear and friction have broken it off. Fob on the left works, one on the right doesn't. I'm assuming what looks like a rubber...
  5. Need help repairing the passenger side door lock actuator

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Till today my passenger side door lock actuator didn't work with the remote but was able to lock all doors and the trunk manually. I found a newer style actuator (orange plug) from a 1999 HSE and decided to transplant the actuator to the old wiring harness and the old door jamb switches. Now the...
  6. Newbie Question -- Repairing RRS in remote places

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I'm not sure where else to post this -- I'm posting here since there seem to be a lot of lurkers like me who are new to the brand and may have a similar question. In short, a RRS is attractive to me in part because it seems like a fantastic vehicle for road trips. I imagine having tons of fun...
  7. Repairing the Remote Key Fob

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi all! I'm the proud, new owner of a 1998 4.6 HSE that i got for a STEAL! With 85K on the clock, this baby had been sitting for 8 months at a repair shop to get it's fuel pump replaced.

  8. Repairing warped rims on my 2008 RRS S/C ??

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Brought my RRS to get the winter tires taken off, and my summer rubber put on. The gents who mounted the tires said both my rear rims were bent a bit, and I would likely feel some vibration in my butt, but not in the steering wheel. I have the stock rims that came on the car back in 2008, and...

  10. Repairing GEMS cruise control ecm

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    The title says it all. For the last few months my cruise control has slowly becoming less and less reliable. It would regularly ´drop´ a setting or not engage at all. Finally it would almost never work. I had already checked all the hoses and the switches - all good. I did some searching and...
  11. Repairing Bosch Xenon Ballast

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I looked around for information on repairing one of my Bosch xenon ballasts a couple weeks ago and didn't find anything here or elsewhere. On a whim I took the ballast apart to see if anything was obviously wrong and lo and behold one of the MOSFETs in there was clearly blown and burnt. I bought...
  12. Repairing a Tear in Ivory Leather?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I'm looking at a range rover sport with ivory leather interior. There is a tear in one of the rear leather seats. The dealer tells me he can fix it and it won't show. Any idea if this is true? Definitely don't want to buy a car where there will be a noticable tear or repair spot in the...
