Hi guys!

Quick question....

Im approaching 75k miles on my 2009 Range Rover sport and the maintenance list is pretty big.
Heres what needs to be done according to an online search:

Replace pollen Filter (cabin filter)
Replace air filter
Replace air cleaner element
Replace dynamic response valve block filter
Change transfer gearbox oil
Change locking differential oil

Im sure I can personally change the air filters, they look easy to do but the rest I wouldnt touch because I am not a mechanic and I do have a trust worthy mechanic but I dont think hes qualified to do some of this work on Range's which he never works on.

SO my question is, do I need to do all these replacements? And If I were to take it to a dealer for the work (minus the air filter replacements) how much would I be looking at in US dollars?

What other options do I have?

Thanks and any help would be great!

I changed my dynamic valve block filter and the one I took out was pristine. I don't think it needed changing at all.
As far as the diff and transfer case fluid I would think any mechanic could change those. Pretty straight forward. I think you are supposed to use LR fluids.

Here is a copy of my post a coiple yuears back when I had my 75k service done at the dealership. I have a 2010 LUX non SC

[h=2]75k Factory Service Results and after market warranty coverage[/h]
Hi Guys

I have a 2010 RRS LUX HSE with 70k. I just had the 75k service done on the truck. I have the extended 4yr/100k warranty provided by Contintenal that i bought through the dealership. Paid just under 4k for it when I had 47k miles on the truck.

1. Replaced oil
2. Air Cleaner replaced
3. Air Cabin Filter replaced
4. Hydraulic fluid replaced
5. Transfer Case service

$800.33 was the cost for this portion of the service.

I also had them replace the 4 wheel arch mouldings. One was hanging down and they replaced all 4.This was just a cosmetic thing but I'm anal about the truck and want it to look right.

$ 217.82 was for the parts & labor.

In addition they found out that I needed a right front wheel hub assembly. They estimated this to be around $750. But the after market warranty covered both parts and labor. This is the first time I had to use the aftermarket warranty and Im glad it paid for this. Now I have $3250 in repairs to break even on the cost of my warranty!!

had them do a state inspection $35

So after taxes and a $75 off coupon for service walked out the door

$1022 lighter. Not to bad. If I didnt have the cosmetic stuff done it would of been $770. out the door for the 75k service.

I also had them look at my wipers since the driver side was cleaning well. They said my Rain X Latitude wipers were not fitting correctly and wanted to sell me the LR wipers for $90/pair !!! Way to much money for wipers so I went to get some Bosch Icon Beam wipers hopefully they work better and they only cost $35 for the pair.

The said I would need brakes soon. The rears were replaced with 50k on the truck and the fronts replaced at 44k so i guess I will we due soon for a whole new set of brakes not looking forward to that cost!

anyways this was just a informative post. I hope this was helpful.​

I change the transfer case, front and rear differential case myself. It is very easy. Raise up the suspension, slide under the vehicle , Remove the fill hole bolt first, then remove the drain plug. Drain all the oil fluids. Tighting the drain plug. Fill the correct amount of fluid and tighting the fill screw. https://www.ecstuning.com/b-motive-parts/power-fill-pro-fluid-transfer-pump-1-gallon/1735~mtv/ This is the tool i used to fill the fluid. I use thread sealer https://www.permatex.com/products/thread-compounds/thread-sealants/permatex-high-performance-thread-sealant/ for the drain plugs.

Hi, I guess it is worth mentioning that should you decide to change any fluids, like Differentials and Transfer - please make sure you can loosen-up fill plug first before untightening drain ones as sometimes they cease up badly and having an old fluid beats having no fluid and no way to fill it. If you plan on keeping the Rover - go as far as replacing Transmission fluid as Lifetime fluid is a myth but that is a big deal in these vehicles but not if you compare it to replacing the transmission.

Yep nothing special about changing diff and transfer fluids (just use right fluid and follow landrover fill instructions - i.e. Don't fill to overflow) .

For trans itself - getting pan out requires engine to be lifted slightly . You can get an after market metal pan that avoids this I think and makes the job easier - I would also replace mechatronix sleve - -any transmission shop that works on zf boxes should be able to do this (they use same transmission on many fords)

Just a note about the tranny fluid, I would consider taking it to an LR specialist indy shop to replace. If you're using oem parts, than yes, they will need to lift the engine slightly to remove and replace the pan (and integrated fluid pickup) in its entirety.

If you want to go aftermarket, there is a metal pan available. With that, the shop can just break the plastic fluid pan when removing it (without raising the engine) and replace with the metal pan which has a pickup routed differently.

Also, it's worth having the TCM flashed/updated after the fluid change as well. I had some weird shifting issues post fluid change, pre tcm flash. The "adaptive" parameters need to be relearned, or something like that.
