Defender in the Fog, another day on the job.389 viewsThis is another normal work day for a Defender - actually the jpg is from a Land Rover advertising shot, but it may just not be a set up one. I think it is an actual working Defender. Note the visible front tow hook and how the hi lift is just rope tied on; also the normal stock headlights and I guess dual spare tyres - just another day on the job.

Fluid, Filter/Pan Combo removal and install5032 viewsThese are the LR instructions re removal and install of the plastic pan/filter combo for the ZF 6HP26X transmission on the 4.4L petrol V8 LR3.

The instructions tend to ignore the reason you have to lift the right hand side of the engine about 40 mm. This is because of a frame cross member that interferes with dropping down of the plastic pan. The real problem is a vertical "oil filter spout" that rises out of the filter/pan combo up into the transmission. The spout is the suction pipe for filtered transmission oil back up into the tranny.

On the metal pan versions, the filter is separate from the pan, hence the filter remains with the tranny when the metal pan is dropped. The filter is then removed or installed independent of the metal pan, hence with the metal pan, there is no need to lift the engine.

If one is removing the plastic pan so as to install the metal pan, then some do not lift the engine but just drop the plastic pan enough to gain access to saw off the vertical plastic spout - it is a one time procedure.

Be aware however that the metal pan uses a flat gasket and the plastic pan uses a O ring like perimeter gasket that sits in a half round groove in the tranny casing. Also the metal pan uses 21 shorter torx M6x22.5 metric cap screws for the perimeter bolts. The plastic pan uses longer M6x28.5 torx metric cap screws.

LR3 Liftgate release mod dust seal with duct tape 0606.JPG
Dust Seal duct taped back together 1754 viewsThis shows the dust seal duct taped back together; also the surplus wire rope exiting from the actuator area prior to being cut to length.

I do not think the sticky plastic membrane is a dust seal, but more of a cable protector to cover up the wiring bundle that is effectively sticking to the underside of the flexible membrane.
LR3 Liftgate release mod wire exiting carpet 0609.JPG
Flexible wire rope fishing leader 0.032" diameter exiting carpet 1573 viewsThis is all you see of the completed mod.

The short little angled "line" about an inch long that looks like a piece of debris and is located a few inches "above" the support cable is actually the wire rope release cable exiting from under the carpeted lift gate cover.

I drilled a very small hole in the carpet and pushed the 0.032" diameter release wire thru and then slipped the loose end under the black plastic.

To release with the lift gate etc closed, from the inside, just pull the loose end free from under the black plastic and gently pull wire about 5mm, (1/4"), and the upper door catch should release. You will have to manually push the upper door out wards to actually effect opening, but you will already be inside the rear cargo area so that part is easy to do.

The assumption is that the lower door latch still works electrically and hence, the lower lift gate half will open as normal by pressing the usual button on the top left of the lower door half.
LR3 Liftgate release mode carpet removed speaker dust shield 0598.JPG
Carpet Panel Removed showing Bass Speaker and Dust Shield 1443 viewsSomething is wrong with the orientation, however this shows what you see when the carpet is removed.

The dust shield, (under which the actuator is located), in the picture is as yet uncut. The white bit is the underside of the plastic lower lift gate carpeted cover panel.

The round thing is the woofer speaker for the Harmon Kardon radio. When the radio is working, one can see the speaker moving, but not much bass sound actually seems to emanate from the speaker.
LR3 Liftgate release mode showing lead weight and wire 603.JPG
0.032" OD metal fishing leader and lead fishing weight clamped to existing wire rope 1758 viewsI used a size #0 lead fishing weight as a clamp to attach the 0.032" diameter flexible wire rope fishing leader to the release cable.

The pictured weight is the smaller #00 weight, however it did not work very well so reinstalled with the larger #0 size. I clamped to the cable as what breaks is the L retainer that is hidden in the actuator and holds the cable. When the L breaks, it lets go of the cable so you hear the clicking but there is no opening action.

Clamping on to the cable is an attempt to resolve that reality; also if the actuator electrically fails, the release mod should still do the task. Note in the picture the two Torx T15 screws that hold the gold plate to the plastic case and also the two 8mm cap screws that have to be loosened to remove the actuator from inside the door.
LR3 Liftgate release mode with carpet removed, dust seal not cut 0596.JPG
Carpeted cover removed showing uncut dust seal and underside of carpeted cover. 1360 viewsNote that there are all sorts of electrical wires sticking to the underside of the dust shield - so be very careful when you cut thru the shield.

I used a box knife very slowly and was surprised at how many conductors there were running just under the shield membrane.

Dust seal cut; note electrical conductors right under dust seal 1364 viewsShows what is underneath when the dust seal is cut. Note the electrical conductors.

I used a box knife to cut the plastic and it was at first easy; then I seemed to hit something and fortunately I stopped - it was the wires - lots of them stuck right to underside of the sticky seal material.

Also shown are the two 8mm nuts in slots that you only have to loosen to release the gold actuator assembly.

Dust seal rolled back showing electrical conductors 1401 viewsNote power conductors just under the dust seal which makes cutting the seal more interesting.

Also shown are the two 8mm nuts located in slots. One must loosen each nut to effect removal of the actuator. This will then reveal two T15 Torx screws that one must completely un-thread to remove the top gold plate from the actuator assembly.

Trolley Jack Adapter691 viewsThis shows my 2.5 long ton, (2,540 kg, 5,600 pounds), trolley jack with the pin adapter that slots up into the round holes on the underside of the frame.

Use of the adapter when lifting by the left rear wheel ensures that I will not be jacking on the air compressor support; on the other three corners, it is much safer than merely jacking directly on the nearly flat narrow underside of the frame rail.
