04 Unusual Flat Tyre.jpg
04 Damaged Tyre300 viewsYes, there\'s no doubt that this was a flat tyre. The ultra hot wheel nuts, look of the flat (note in a later photo that the back of the tyre appeared okay) and increased fuel consumption should have been a clue, but it was 45 deg C, and we had been doing about 105 km/hr on a dirt road for hours, so we just assumed it was a flat = WRONGO!
05 That is indeed a flat tyre.jpg
05 No doubt the tyre is flat273 viewsThis is the view of the flat tyre. Again, didn\'t think it anything more than a "normal" explosive blowout, as the tyre was about 90% worn, we were heavily loaded, it was 45 deg C, and driving 105 km/ho on a rough dirt road in the outback.

18 Time to start driving slowly with 3 brakes.jpg
18 Brake "repairs" finished at sunset293 viewsWe just finished the repair at sunset and were driving slowly with 3 brakes. Oddly the D3 didn\'t behave any differently at 50 km/hr than it did normally. We had 4 instances of hitting the (3) skids for kangaroos before arriving in Wilcannia 3 hrs later. The brake light warning was making very distinctive noises and flashing randomly, though.

Black Deposits on Brake Light Switch Plunger2499 viewsThis jpg I got off another forum and is typical of what one will see when one opens up the removed brake light switch. The black powder is residue from arcing of one of the pair of contacts within.

Hopefully the newer switches with the FOMOCO logo moulded into the plastic are improved from the Land Rover logo marked early units, however I doubt it.

The Ford part number is SW-6572 and/or 7E5Z-13480-A as used on the 2006 to 2009 Ford Fusion's and Mercury Milan's; the Land Rover part number is XKB500110. Cost of switch could be about twenty five dollars. A previous LR part number for the switch was XKB500030, so hopefully the newer LR part number, XKB500110, reflects some improvement in reliability.

It is possible that the new switches are better as I installed a replacement 72,000 km, (45,000 miles) later, at 195,000 km (121,000 miles). When I took the removed switch apart to inspect, it was clean inside. There was no black dust - the switch looked like new, hence they must be improved now.

LRs stick together128 viewsA date plantation alongside a wadi in the Western Hajar mountains of Oman. My mate\'s Disco 2 in company. Cracking drive on this day some 100km off-raod through wadis and mountain graded roads. Sheer, unadulterated pleasure.

the road between home and work290 viewsthe day before returning from work, I got stuck here in the middle of the snow storm. The plow didn\'t pass yet and wind was blowing snow everywere. Since then I always carry during winter a survival pack consisting of warm coat,cap, warm, high boots and gloves.
It is no fun recovering a car stuck in the snow and sliding down from the road when moving in nothing more than a business outfit (no gloves, city shoes, no coat) with a snowy wind blowing 100km/h..... .

Graveside Gorge, Kakadu National Park - track in.jpg
D3 in Kakadu National Park, on the track into Graveside Gorge51 viewsKakadu National Park is in a World Heritage area, with the entrance about 3 hours out of Darwin. It took another hour to get to the un-marked track into Graveside Gorge, which then took three hours to travel the 41km in. Not a tough track, but a series of big wash-outs with very deep and soft sand in the creek beds made driving fun. The most amazing thing, was that we had the whole place to ourselves. No marked tracks, so bushwalking involved blazing a trail using GPS and topo maps to find the way.

Glen Nevis240 viewsOn our tour of the Highlands and the Isle of Skye we ended up on a road that didn't seem to be on the map. It took us right up through Glen Nevis and then just carried on and on to the Falls of Steil (apologies if spelt incorrectly). The falls were amazing and were only about 1KM walk from where we ended up parking the Disco.

Inflating the boat at Foz176 viewsBruce had 2 Gemini inflatables on top of the Defender, with 2 engines in the rear compartment. Inflating the boats took about 30 minutes. The plan was to cross the Cunene and greet the miners on the Namibian side, which is where the Outside Edge expedition had left off a couple of weeks prior - they couldn\'t cross the Cunene in Land Rovers, so they had to go around - a detour of some 2000km

After running out of fuel, 18km from the nearest balcktop and fuel station, 3 of the team's cars waited for the return of the other two with fuel. What does one do at times like these? Have a nice tidy up inside, dust off the sand and put the kettle on for a cuppa tea.

Radio Noise Suppression Capacitor NNW502820579 viewsThis is the radio noise suppression capacitor, part number LR020488 (previous NNW502820), that is mounted underneath and near the transmission. It is powered by fuse 10 amp F30E in the engine compartment. If F30E blows, (the fuse that also powers the transmission ECU), the problem is probably caused by the failed capacitor, not the ECU. A quick fix is just to disconnect the capacitor and replace the fuse as nothing bad seems to immediately result.

The above radio noise capacitor is not to be confused with LR004160, the ignition noise capacitor which is located under the black plastic engine cover on the right hand side above the air intake towards the rear of the engine.

The ignition capacitor is held on with a single 8mm bolt and a three wire electrical connector. Replacing the ignition capacitor as a routine maintenance prevention action at 100,000 miles, 160,000 km), has merit. It is a do it yourself kind of thing and easier to get at than the radio capacitor underneath.
Huh?146 viewsPhoto that informs drivers that there are speed limits (50km/h) in built-up areas of Queensland. Sign was about the size of the car and traffic on this road was minimal. Wondered if the powers that be had only one size sign and whether there was a procedure that stated that the sign must be placed so that you couldn't miss seeing it as you entered this part of Queensland.

LR3 Silver 10 spoke grooved wheel Cromodora of Italy 18 inch x 8 ALY72201U85337 viewsThis is Land Rover part number RRC505360MNH or RRC505360XXX, a grooved ten spoke 18" wheel rated at 940 kg and found on circa 2006 RR Sports and some 2007 LR3's. An alternative part number is ALY72201U85.

This is an example of a wheel factory spec on the full frame older RRS that is also factory spec on the 3 or 4 and hence can be moved from the RRS to the 3 or 4. This is rare however. A factory spec wheel for a 3/4 can always go onto an older full frame RRS but not necessarily vice versa.

Just because a wheel is a 5 lug, 120mm bolt circle, +53 mm offset and made by Cromodora does not mean it has the required 940 km load rating. That also has to be confirmed by looking on the backside of one of the spokes for the moulded in load number in kg.

Note that diesel oil when fresh may not be black like the sample shown (car had travelled 5 000km on delivery oil). You can see small indentations in both sticks. This is where I observe the current oil level. Note also the two arrows at either end of the red plastic indicators showing lower and upper limits (I do not know what the red ball is for however - it just may be a guide.)

ZF LifeguardFluid6 transmission oil.1253 viewsThis is an interesting pdf in that under the ZF 6HP26 six speed section, it provides the various automobile manufacturer part numbers for their version of the appropriate tranny oil, all of which seems to be the LifeguardFluid6 oil, ZF part number S671 090 255. Note the fine print and do not confuse it with the LifeguardFluid6 Plus oil for vehicles with the Torsen AWD setup such as the Audi Quattro, VW 4Motion vehicles and I think the BMW FF Range Rovers of an earlier time.

Also of interest at the bottom of the pdf is the recommendation for replacing the transmission oil "between 80,000 km and 120,000 km or 8 years, depending on the load." I also do not see any reference to "sealed for life" but almost as optimistic, "maintenance free" but with the proviso "intended for normal operating conditions". This would most typically be the Sandringham Castle Grounds in the UK rather than Cape York, QLD.
