    Hello all! First time owner here, looking forward to diving in and seeing what I've got myself into. Proud to say I have finally acquired a piece of British motoring history, a 1994 Brooklands Green Classic LWB :mrgreen:. Is her paint or interior perfect? Nope. Does she currently run? Nope...
  2. RRC Interior Wood Trim

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi there, I'm trying to get my wood trim refinished, but I'm having a hard time finding someone to do it. I spoke to Madera Concepts, but If I recall correctly they were about $3,500 do to my whole set in Walnut Burl. Too expensive for me. I spoke to britishautowood.com and he was much...
  3. Add newer electric seats to RRC?

    Range Rover Classic
    I've got an 87 rangie that has the manual cloth seats - but they need TLC. I have sourced a nice, newer set of leather rrc seats but the fronts have electrical controls. Has anyone gone down this route before and retrofitted electrically adjusted seats? Any tips? Failing that, anyone know...

  7. Need Advice - Hitch Mount Spare Tire Adapter - Jeep to RRC

    Range Rover Classic
    I purchased hitch mount spare tire carrier that has three welded studs which I believe fits a 5x4.5 lug pattern. My RRC has 5x6.5 and the spare won’t mount. I am considering bolting on a wheel adapter or having a fab shop fix it. Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations for wheel adapter?
  8. Help with identifying loud grinding noise 94 RRC

    Range Rover Classic
    Help! My 94 SWB RRC started making a loud groaning/grinding noise that's scaring small animals and children in my neighbourhood. I've had this truck for 6 months and, until now, the noise has been infrequent (maybe once a month) and goes away quickly. It wasn't that loud either so it wasn't...
  9. First time RRC owner from Vancouver Canada

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi Everyone! I recently purchased my first Range Rover - an Alpine White 94 3.9 SWB. It's not perfect but it drives well (when it's running :roll:) and has an immaculate interior. It's definitely a worthy long-term project that I look forward to wrenching on. With my limited time and...

    Hi all, Latest A/C gremlin is a potentially blocked Expansion (TX) Valve according to my local auto electrician. A/C works great for 5-15 mins then compressor starts making a real rattle / squeal. Does anyone know where this is located....I'm guessing under the dash but I hope someone here...
  11. RRC Stop Motion Restoration (Amazing)

    Range Rover Classic
    As a long time lurker in the world of Range Rover Classics, this one YouTuber has allowed me to live vicariously through his restoration until I find the one I want to work on. He's an Irish guy named George and his channel is called "Soup Classic Motoring". He also works on other classics...
  12. 91 RRC - Alternator Belt keeps coming loose

    Range Rover Classic
    When we first took delivery, I drove this vehicle about 25 miles to home with no issues. When we started it about two hours later the alt belt made a horrid squeal as it was now loose. After about a block it got quiet however within a few miles the belt broke. I replaced the belt with an...

    Range Rover Classic
    Hello everybody, I am currently looking for a new automatic zf 4HP22 gearbox for my 3.9L 1989 Range Rover Classic as the old one has broken down. I have now come upon a 4HP22 gearbox that was taken from a 3.9L 1995 Discovery 1. Are these directly interchangeable? Thank you in advance!
  14. 1983 RRC AC restore and R134A coversion notes

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi All, I recently completed the overhaul of my AC system and thought it might be good to share my research with ya’ll. So to recap, I have a 1983 4 door RRC with a 3.5 Carb engine (now running Sniper EFI throttlebody) which is ‘rescued’ from a junk yard in Houston. The car is an original...
  15. Houston RRC spotted

    Range Rover Classic
    Spotted this RRC in Houston on the I10 in heavy commuter traffic yesterday. Driven by a well dressed older gentleman. Being a Houston RRC owner myself this is the first time I spotted one in Houston (or south coast) in the wild like that. I don't think they are very popular on this side of...
  16. '86 RRC windshield washer conondrum

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi all. So I'm a little baffled by the windshiled washer. I ordered one from Rimmer bro's and it has different electrical connector from my original. What I've understood, this is "early" -type connector. However Rimmer insist that it's correct. I've found from Bearmach similar pump as my old...
  17. 1991 RRC Steering Rebuild

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi all, The steering on my '91 RRC has had a ton of play in the steering wheel, not really picking up much until about 10° of tilt. It's not surprising given that the truck is 28 years old, but it's been problematic with freeway driving. Over the weekend I had an assistant turn the wheel while...
  18. 1991 RRC Stereo Wiring Question

    Range Rover Classic
    I added an aftermarket stereo and am getting no sound. The receiver gets power and I can tell it receives music via Bluetooth. But no sound comes through the speakers. I’m confident I wired the speakers correctly. I did not connect the “powered antenna” wires to anything. Likewise, there were...
  19. '86 RRC 3.5 V8 coolant level

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi. So today was a bit chilly (-29C in the morning) and the Rangie overheated. Apparently the windchill was a bit much for the coolant (green and I assume 50:50 mix so -36C rated) and it froze. No idea when it has been changed. So car cooled and radiator melted during the day while it was...
  20. Bubbling coming from Exhaust Header - 92 RRC 3.9 V8

    Range Rover Classic
    I am trying to fully diagnose an issue I'm having on my RRC. I will try to also post a video of what I'm seeing so it might make more sense. On cold startup, I have noticed there is a distinct bubbling of some moisture coming from cylinder #4 out of the space between the cylinder head and the...
