Service due - what needs to be done?

Just bought a '13 D4 HSE, 98,000, 1 owner and 1 year MOT, but is in need of a service.

First registered in March '13, she's had 7 services in her lifetime:

Date Mileage
16/12/2013 6741
11/09/2014 24297
14/01/2015 32423
? 49000
09/09/2016 64580
? 69075
07/12/2017 84346

My question is, what service does she need? Going on the LR rotation she needs a 'B' service - do the belts need to be done now, or wait for 115k? Or should I just take to a good indy and get them to have a good look and recommend?

This is the D4 service schedule from Wiki:

https://disco3.co.uk/gallery/albums/userpi...20MY10.pdf


Belts should be done at 7 years or 112,000 miles, which ever is first although there would be no harm in doing them earlier.

As the car is new to you it does sound like a good plan to have a good indy do a thorough check and take it from there.



Oh, and welcome to the joy of D4 ownership Smile

Thanks! Good info - how do interpret this? Does it go on the number of services? Previous owner seems to have serviced more regularly that 12 months/16,000 miles so already completed 7 services in 5 years and 84,000 miles.

So should I be looking at a year 6 service, a 98,000 mile service or service number 8?

For what it's worth I have always followed the JLR schedule, and in addition done an oil & filter change mid-way between the 2 JLR official services.

Fresh oil & a filter cost very little & I sleep better at night!

Depending on how long you intend to keep the car I would consider doing the belts early, and possibly refreshing the oil pump at the same time.

Thanks, good advice. Definitely want to get 'everything' done on this service as can't be certain what was done previously. Keen to keep the car as long as she'll keep running - a day, a year, a lifetime ...

Might have to leave the belts a few months though, all my cash appears to have flowed on buying the car, tax and insurance. Next step service, then tyres, then belts! Oh, and all the other things that will crop up along the way ...

Hi Guru,

Last service including cam belt change and body off to replace a leaking rear cam seal was done at Groombridges , based in Heathfield, East Sussex. Good guys who know their stuff and car is running the best it has ever.

No glamour with them but I can recommend giving them a call - 01435863228

I travel from Surrey to them now because I rate them so highly and they are pretty good value.

They do courtesy cars but don't expct anything newer than a high mileage FL2 !

Thanks, I'll check them out.

Belts will be the next service (in about a year) for me - I've started saving already!

Also, getting a clunk from the front on speed bumps/braking. Assuming front bushes / arms from what I've read on the forums but getting it checked out next week. Hoping the warranty will cover (as it explicitly names bushes and suspension in what's covered).

Sailed through the Mot on 1 Feb with no advisories so must be a recent thing...
