07 Back side of failed tyre337 viewsThis is the back of the blown tyre. It looks like any other worn tyre which has run a bit while flat. Note that we were running on wider 19" RRS wheels (have 4 19" MTRs + 1 old A/T on the original 5 wheels). Also have a rear-mount spare tyre holder which is really convenient with the wider rim and the fact that the tyre was still hot (it had some melted rubber on the other side!!)

Gospel Pass Jan 2015115 viewsThe Gospel Pass (Welsh: Bwlch yr Efengyl) is the highest road pass in Wales. It is at the head of the Vale of Ewyas in the Black Mountains of southeast Wales.[1] The narrow mountain road climbs steeply from Hay-on-Wye to a height of 549 metres (1,801 ft) [2] above sea level, squeezing between the mountains of Twmpa to the west and Hay Bluff to the east, before dropping down into the valley to the south on its way to Llanthony Priory, Llanfihangel Crucorney and Abergavenny.
solar panel install260 viewsAt least at this point, I mounted it by using Clear Silicone RTV. This stuff is kind of like glue, but can be removed. If it doesn't hold up after curing and driving, I'll remove it and come up with another plan. I used heavy cable ties on the 4 grommets, in case it lets loose, it won't take out my wiring and the car behind me. 2 Panels are dandy like this, but I don't want to permanently block the roof space.

Aerial Fin Image_20061020 (2).pdf
Land Rover Aerial Fin images for both Glass and Metal Roof Disco3 / LR3603 viewsAs well as the two different fins, this pdf also shows the plastic blanking plate for glass roof vehicles where no fin is installed.

The glass roof fin is secured by two security screws from the top into a plastic frangible glue on gasket. The hope is that when struck, the fin will shear off and not crack the glass roof. Re the metal roof design, the fin is secured from underneath via two nuts.

The pdf also shows the various electrical bits related to the antennas. In the UK, the fin would house not only a cell phone antenna but the TV and satellite radio antenna electronics as well; in the States, the Sirius sat radio antenna and a G type cell phone antenna if the phone kit was installed would reside within the fin. The SAT NAV GPS antenna is located within the High Mount Brake Light plastic mounted to the upper rear hatch.
Aerial Fin Image_20061020 (2)~0.pdf
Fin cell phone aerial drawing163 viewsThe factory aerial for the factory NAV / GPS on my 2005 HSE is within the high mounted stop light lens at the top of the upper hatch door. I do not have the factory installed phone kit, and as such, do not have the fin installed; instead there is just a plastic blanking insert to fill the cell phone aerial wiring hole in the metal portion of the roof; hence this requirement for an "external" cell antenna. For those that do have the fin on their glass roof, the fin is screwed on to a glued on plastic gasket, (sort of), and not bolted thru as per the metal roof 3's.

Aux Battery vent 8.jpg
BCI Group 40R Deka 640RMF battery showing vent hose run forward to windshield washer reservoir area 1221 viewsRecessed post "Euro profile" battery to "match" OEM and stock Land Rover bracket; note that the Traxide SC80-LR module is mounted at an angle to allow for the main cable to sit under the cover so cover still closes.
The battery is a nominal 7", (180mm), high, but sits on a 1" battery spacer set under to raise the bottom front end of the battery such that the approx 11", (290 mm), length of the BCI 40R battery rises above the angled plastic nibs at the forward end bottom of the case front; hence sufficient space, (1/4", 5mm) remains at the brake reservoir end.

Also the 40R battery does not have hold down "flanges" on each end; on the sides yes, but not the ends so no additional length is required.

When I had to replace the 40R, this time I installed the shorter, (9.625"), taller, (7.5") Interstate BCI 47 / DIN H5 battery which eliminated the spacer on the bottom and better fit the stock LR tie down bolt lengths. Deka also has a BCI 47 / DIN H5 that would work fine as well.

Smooth Talker Amplifier Box mounted below near steering column.156 viewsThe gold look box due to the lighting, (actually black), is the antenna amplifier located near the steering column. It can be put anyway but this seemed an OK location as I ran the antenna connector cable rearward from here to the back corner of the 3 and then up to the underside of the roof glass at the rear. The blue/white thing is the brake light switch that often must be replaced. See the Brake Light Switch file within this Gallery regarding the switch replacement.

The air tank relief valve is set just over 16.5 Bar (240 psig); the front air springs run maybe 9 Bar, (130 psig) and the rear, somewhat less, perhaps between 5 and 8 Bar. (70 to 115 psig). Max theoretical air spring pressure at full compression due to a big bump and full gross is approximately 27 Bar (390 psig).

12V outlets for the 2nd row11 viewsI used a part of the old front (which was broke) to cut out a 'mount' for three 12V outlets for the second row.
The outer outlets are switched on whenever the ignition is on as I used the connector that originally was out there.
The middle outlet is connected to the auxiliary battery and is switched on/off through a rocker switch in the central console. (other picture)
This middle one is going to be used for our small fridge that usually resides just there when we're on holiday.

- play whatever 32native game they want to (although I'm not quite happy with those)
and they can do this no matter what the other one is doing :)
Battery check display13 viewsI mounted a digital battery display in order to see the voltage on the auxiliary battery.
There's also a thermometer which gives the inner and outer (via a side switch) values.
The display is switched on/off via another rocker switch.

Redg plate mounting122 viewsThe original redg plate mounting was modified. An L-shaped piece of plastic now sticks out rearward from the top of the mounting and this hooks over the back of the top edge of the bumper cover. Then 2 spring clips hold the bottom edge of the mounting in place. Proximity sensor and surround camera seen unaffected.
Recessed Hawse 139 viewsI had the hawse powder coated black which was not necessary in the end as it is normally hidden behind the number plate. The cutout of the hole in the bumper cover could have been a bit tidier, but again, it is usually hidden when winch not in use. Note the two clip receivers which hold redg plate mounting in situe.

Brembos - FFRR vs RRS 01131 viewsHaving acquired the wrong calipers and discs initially, I purchased the correct RRS kit from TLO. Useful picture - the light grey calipers show that the FFRR has a smaller offset mounting point and smaller diameter threaded holes. The glossy calipers are for RRS and fit D3 perfectly with correct offset and M15 mounting holes.

LR3 Air Valve Shut off switch close up 7.JPG
Air Suspension ECU Fuse 35P cut off switch.3227 viewsThis shows the SPST rocker switch mounted in the blank plate installed in lieu of a manual passenger side air bag shut down switch - now automatic via passenger seat pressure switch. Fuse 35P (5 amps) is located in the interior fuse box behind the lower glove box and protects the ignition power supply to the Air Suspension ECU. When the SPST switch is moved to the OFF position, the RAISE /LOWER switch on the centre console is not powered, and hence does not function. As such, some signals from the wheel height sensors and CPU are ignored. By itself however, removing F35P will probably not stop the 3 from self dropping, particularly after the engine is turned off.

Fuse F3E, (5 amps), located in the engine bay fuse box by the starting battery protects the circuit that provides feedback to the Air System ECU indicating that the Compressor Relay has successfully operated and that the Air Compressor is or should be operational, can also be removed, (but is probably not totally necessary), as it gets its power thru F26E. Hence Fuse F26E, (20 amp), also located in the engine compartment fuse box is the fuse that must be removed. This fuse protects the circuit that provides full time battery power to the Air System ECU. When in place, current thru the fuse powers the periodic re-levelling action, (usually lowering a bit with that brief air release noise), that often occurs when the vehicle is parked and the engine is off.

Removing F26E fuse will stop the auto levelling action and also inhibit any other down to the stops signals, (engine running or not). When F26E is removed, no power can flow thru to F3E, hence removing F3E is more for insurance than an absolute requirement. The same with F35P, removing F26E removes primary full time power from the Air Suspension ECU, and hence removing the F35P fuse should not really be required either as long as F26E has been removed.

LR3 Boot lighting looking to rear hatch closed 0468.JPG
Boot lighting, looking to rear - hatch closed 488 viewsView shows the lights mounted in the rear on an early spring day.

In operation, the lights are tilted so that they shine downwards. The lights are mounted high enough up that one cannot see the LEDs from the front thru the rear view mirror; also the LEDs are so directional, that no light is thrown on the side glass.

Each assembly contains 15 LEDs, however the reflector is such that the LEDs appear to double.
LR3 Boot lighting panel on floor finish side up 0463.JPG
Boot lighting panel, finish side up 281 viewsThe above jpg shows the two 15 LED light assemblies as well as the SPST rocker switch mounted beside the W5W Land Rover supplied light.

The reality is that with the recent development of LED lighting that can replace a W5W T10 bulb, one can almost achieve the same results just by installing a LED bulb within the factory light.
LR3 Boot lighting panel on floor wiring side up 0461.JPG
Boot lighting panel, wiring side up 256 viewsThis shows the back side of the plastic cover panel on which the two LED lights are mounted.

Also of note is the SPST rocker switch to switch the new lights off independent of the the Land Rover W5W light.

The new light pair will only power up if the Land Rover light is powered and hence dims and automatically goes off along with the Land Rover light.

The Black wire is ground, the Purple wire is +12VDC.

LR3 FASKIT panel mounted valves in off position 0477.JPG
View of mounted panel from front left side717 viewsNote that all valve handles are shown in the OFF position, (the trouble position). In this case, the air that is in the air springs, (if any), is trapped in there - that is the valve blocks cannot vent whatever air is already in the air springs as the air lines between the springs and respective valve blocks are closed off by the FASKIT valves. In operation, there may be only trouble with one air spring, (perhaps a wheel height sensor), and as such, only one valve would need to be closed. If there was complete air compressor failure, then all valves would be closed and then as required, each spring could be manually filled from an outside clean dry oil free air source.

View of mounted panel from front left corner589 viewsI drilled a hole for the supplied 6 mm tie down toggle bolt in a flat portion of the wing on which the panel sits. I inserted a 50 mm flat rubber washer between the wing metal surface and the underside of the black painted panel plate; also a 40 mm flat rubber washer between the supplied fender washer and the metal plate - just seemed like a good idea so surfaces mate well even if wing metal not completely flat.

LR3 tech-wheel terms.gif
Wheel cut thru definitions and specs791 viewsNote the location of REAR SPACING and also OFFSET; probably two of the most important dimensions and not always understood as related to wheel size and relationship to the brake components.

For the 3, Rear Spacing is approximately 6.5 inches or 165 mm for a nominal 8" rim. Offset is 53P or 53mm Positive, which means the distance from the machined hub flat mounting surface to the rim's true centreline is 53 mm in the outboard direction. (The rim illustrated has a negative offset.)

As Positive offset increases, this means the wheel wraps around the disc brake mechanism more deeply, and hence the more the wheel would cover the brake parts. This is why most 18" wheels will not fit with the larger Brembo "supercharged engine" brake calipers.
Pitch circle diameter is 120mm; Pattern is 5 lug, and the tyre load rating is 112 with a recommended tyre speed rating of H or higher along with the XL load rating. For the 3, the stock tyre diameter is about 30 inches. The 255/60/18 or 255/55/19 OEM tyre outside diameter is 30.04 inches; Wheel lug torque is from 130 to 150 Nm or 96 to 110 lbf-ft and the lug nut hex socket size is 22mm.

Max Load High Speed Driving Tyre pressures are Front, 33 psig, (230 Kpa) and Rear, 42 psig, (290 Kpa).

The OEM rims are rated at 940 kgs, the highest that LR makes, hence while rims from other Land Rover products may physically fit, the odds are they are under rated in a weight sense.

The FASKIT panel is just visible at the top left corner of the picture.
Smooth off road ride!398 viewsThis was the first time I took my LR3 off-road. I traded my Jeep Wrangler for this vehicle so I was used to heading into the rugged mountains. I was very amazed (as were my friends in their Jeeps) just how level the LR3 remained as I navigated over various dips and mounds. You can see the Cherokee behind me couldn't say the same.

LR3 and 4 NAS hitch receiver original and newer third generation.703 viewsThe picture shows the original 2005 model "plow" for the LR3 and the newer shorter hitch receiver introduced with the LR4. Either receiver can be used on the LR3/D3; they are interchangeable.
The part number of the newer third generation short style is LR019990 replacing previous long type part number KNB500080. There were two versions of the longer one, KNB500080 with the orange key, apparently a better locking setup. The first generation, KNB500023, with a black key was less than perfection.

The green lock assembly with orange key, part number KNW500010, shown on the shorter hitch, can be purchased separately should a key be lost.

Regardless of receiver model, the receiver will accept nominal NAS 2" tongue on which may be mounted the appropriate ball size.
Horn Wiring Circuit LR3511 viewsThe is the wiring diagram for the dual horn circuit.
The Horn Relay, (R133), is not a big black thing hidden somewhere but instead what is called a FET, (and it is hidden)!

This is a Field Effect Transistor that is built into the circuit board that is mounted to the back of the fuse box that is located behind the lower glove box door on the passenger side of the 3. The related 15 amp fuse, 12P, is mounted in this fuse box and is often called F12P, where F is for fuse, and P is for Passenger compartment.

This is to help differentiate from another fuse and relay box, (the usual kind), that is located beside the starting battery in the Engine compartment. FxxE is often used in the naming of those fuses.
Radio Removal from Radio Stack413 viewsThis shows how to remove the radio from the stack. Basically you remove the H surround first and then at least loosen all the Torx 20 screws left and right sides from the top down starting at the narrow unit that the four way flasher/locking buttons are mounted on.

The units kind of interlock, hence some movement of each is required to remove the radio by itself. I find it best to take out the four way flasher/locking buttons assembly first as that allows access to the fibre optic cable connector into the back of the radio head without too much tugging.
