  1. Tire Wear Front or Rear?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello, A few weeks back I went to the tire shop near my house to put my summer wheels on my car. Two of the tires were at 7/32 and the other two at 6/32. The tire shop guy said he will put the 7/32 at the back because the tires wear out faster on the rear. Before the treads of my tires get two...
  2. Brake pad wear sensor clip

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I have been looking all over for the clip that holds the pad sensor in place but having no luck. I have a 2010 sport hse. One popped out and I can find it. Closest dealer is over an hour away. Was hoping to just order it online. Does anyone know what it is called as any combination of words I...
  3. Excessive rear brake wear?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I have a 2017 RRS ATB that I bought with ~20,000 miles. I took it into the dealership for something unrelated with around 25,000 miles on it and they said that my rear brake pads are down to 5mm and are recommending I get them replaced. He said the front brakes are fine (didn't get the #...
  4. 2006 RRS Brake Wear Sensor cable connector mismatch

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    So, I get my brake "kit" from AB. I've had good dealings with them, so this is not a rant. All is fine and fits perfect UNTIL I get to the brake pad wear sensor. I route the cable without issue, but when I disconnect the "car end" of the old cable and attempt to connect the new cable, it's...
  5. Diesel fuel injector pump (FIP) when do they wear out?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi I have a couple of P38 diesels and I suspect one of them might be developing a fuel pump issue. Reading codes I get code 136, fuel actuator circuit fault. Also once in perhaps 10 times you dip the accelerator at idle it will almost run away (1600-1800 RPM) and then almost stall (500-600) for...
  6. Uneven Tyre Wear

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I fitted new front tyres for the MoT due to uneven wear - the inner part of both front tyres had worn more than the outer part. Shame as there was still a good few thousand miles left in those tyres. Just a bit of excessive toe out I thought. Just had the tracking checked and it's perfect -...
  7. 2001 RR HSE 4.6 P38, Please check out this belt wear...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I've ordered the belt to replace this but am wondering what caused it, and if I should do the belt tensioner while I'm in there? I've been smelling burning rubber for the last couple of days (usually smell burning oil but that's another thread) and looking around the engine for the culprit I...
  8. Excessive Rear Tire Wear

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    On my second RRS TDV8 I have been experiencing excessive wear on the inside of the rear tires. The tire shop had checked the alignment when fitting the new tires but after about 8,000km the toe out was close to - 8 degrees on both sides. It has been stated that when I tow a caravan I may...
  9. Uneven Brake wear - squeaky brakes tsb

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hello everyone- i went to the dealer multiple times for the squeaky brakes issue - my 2014 rrs sup has 49k miles on it - finally they stated there is a tsb out for this and they exchanged the front pads to eliminate the squeak. What i found odd was that they told me my front pads were at 8/32...

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Had my pads, rotors and wear sensors replaced on the 2014.5 full size RR. How does one reset the brake pad wear light? Will it eventually reset itself? TIA
  11. Wear and Tear

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I was wondering how owners whose RRS's have a few miles on them are faring on the interior and exterior. How is the leather, dashboard, door cards holding up. Any body or engine issues? My car has just crossed 3000 miles, the only thing to report is the scratching on the black wood around the...
  12. Rear Tire Wear

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    The left rear tire on my '99 is wearing very badly. You would think that it was on the front and the toe was WAAAY off. The guy that does my state inspections here, a good friend of mine, put in on his alignment rack and it says that the RIGHT toe is way out, the reading was -0.28. The left side...
  13. Brake Pad wear Sensors

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I have just replaced all of the rotors and pads on my 2009 RRS supercharged. The wear sensor light is still on. My question is are the sensors the same front and rear so if i order 2 replacements can I just order the same.

  15. Leather Wear Question - Matte to Shiny

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I have a RRS 2012 Lux with the Arabica interior (seats). I am pretty much the only person that rides in the car so the only seat with entry and exit wear and tear is the driver's seat. After three years and 30,000 miles the drivers seat has uniformly worn to give off a bit of a shine compared...

  17. Tire Wear - worse on front or rear tires?

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    I have just acquired a 2014 Pure Plus that has already had its first service (just last month). While checking the car all over, I noticed that the front tires have between 1.5mm and 2mm more wear than the back tires. The car has just over 20,000 km on it. I would have assumed that the tires...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I have a factory 2013 RRS Limited Edition. I purchased it with 12k miles from a LR dealer. After 10k miles, I went in for an oil change and checkup, and the dealer pointed out that the inside of both my front tires and the inside of my left rear tire are very worn and the tires need to be...
  20. Wear marks left from brush guard or side steps?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Looking at several used Rovers and some have factory side steps and/or factory brush guard installed. I would be removing those, but I'm concerned about wear marks on front bumper or lower side body panels where they contacted these accessories. Anyone have experience removing these and know if...
