Is my computer monitor just bad? I can kinda make out the LR logo but how do you guys know those are not for a Freelander?Those look right.
If you've ever changed plugs in the dark ( i.e., near the Arctic Circle in the winter) you'll want to have some spares in case you drop a few in the engine bay. Trust me.Wow Fat! You've got a V12!!! Bardzo Dobre!
yes you do...I dony have one
PJ, what is the exact part # for the plugs? when doing a search, I noticed there are about 3 different plugs out there, want to make sure I use the righ one, thanks!!I did my own plugs around 70K if I remember. One key obviously is to take off the engine cover and also remove the heat shields on the side of the engine, that allows easier access.
Having said that, it's not as easy to get them all out as on other vehicles, particularly those 4 closest to the firewall as the angle is a bit awkward and you have to be careful not to bend the unit....however, with patience and gentle coaxing, it can be done. It took me about 2 hours to do them all...but I was being cautious not to break anything.
Probably easier to get your local independent shop to do it in my opinion for the next time around.
Sorry to resurrect an older thread, but how did you remove the heatshields? There is 1 screw at the top (easy) and 2 tabs at the bottom which mate to clips on the body. I don't see a release mechanism for the clips and pulling upward doesn't show any "give".Frisco,
Do you mean the black engine cover or something below that?
You shouldn't have to take off anything else besides the black engine cover and the heat shields to make for easier access.
