0000 LR Bluetooth dealer Kit install instructions1330 viewsThis 17 page pdf is mostly a series of pictures showing how to install the original Land Rover dealer installed Bluetooth kit for circa 2005 / 2006 three's. Also included are three wiring diagrams sheets related to the pairing code 0000 Bluetooth install.

This pdf is useful if you are now removing the 0000 kit to install the optical 2121 MOST D4 module, an easier install than the 0000 kit ever was.

03 First bit of tyre/wheel trouble243 viewsIn the outback a tyre suddenly blew. "No worries" we thought, as we had 3 spares (+ two more if we abandoned the trailer), 150l of water, 3 days of food, and an EPIRB if things got really bad. At the time I didn\'t fully appreciate the fact that my index got a blister from the burning heat of one of the wheel nuts. It was 45 deg C at the time, so everything was hot.

03 The first bit of tyre/wheel problem249 viewsSomewhere in the Australian outback on a 45 deg C day in Jan 08, a D3 had a bit of a flat tyre problem. "No worries, mate" st we had 3 spares (plus 2 more if we abandon the trailer), 150l of water, 4 days of food, and an EPIRB if things really go crook. The first clue that this was not a "normal" flat was when I handled a wheel nut and ended up with a blister from a burning hot nut (the ambient wasn\'t THAT hot).

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 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.

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!!)

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.

This will behave properly in your D3/4 LR3 with slightly less wear and tear on your alternator.
solar roof install387 viewsMore or less wrapped up my solar installation today. I added a Grape Solar Flex 100W panel, it's adequate to keep the vehicle topped off with the Fridge running, and Ham, but it could lose some ground if transmitting depending on how much, 2 would be awesome. One is enough, but barely. I am quite impressed with the Grape Solar flex panel version 2.0.
low profile solar panel170 viewsThe low profile solar panel, can be seen here, as the fine white line under the light bar. The way it's laid out, the panel should generate decent power between 10am and 4pm depending on the time of year, from the sides or front, with no shadows. Grape Solar 100W flex panel.

Land Rover Stop Tail Light dual filament bulb nominal 12 volt 21 / 5 watt filaments1299 viewsThis is the Land Rover part number 264590 dual filament bulb, (P21/5), that inserts into the upper two tail lamp receptacles. In the upper one, both filaments function, in the lower one, only the 5 watt tail light filament functions.

I regard it as not a good practice to routinely switch bulbs when the tail light filament, (5 watt), burns out on the lower bulb. The broken filament can jiggle over onto the brake light filament, (21 watt), and short the circuit to ground or something else not predicable.

There are also arguments to say that quality control is better on the Land Rover marketed bulbs than say far east sourced bulbs. Filament construction, and hence resistance can vary and mislead the current sensing circuits monitoring the signal light systems. Also when the bulbs are properly installed, all filaments should be standing vertically and not at any slope.

These are the sort of obscure circumstances that can lead to false trouble messages on the display, dropping to the stops, and subsequent concerns - all over a tail/signal light bulb.

For example, the filament life of both the tail light and the brake light filaments in the P21/5 bulb is significantly less than the USA common 1157 dual filament bulb, (1000/250 vs 5000/1200 hours); brightness in the P21/5 is a bit more, (3cp/35cp vs 3cp/32cp where cp is candle power), but current consumption is oddly less, (0.44a/1.86a vs 0.59a/2.10a where a is amps). It is the quest for efficiency vs maintenance trade off.

4 pin flat trailer connector with wire colours.jpg
4 pin NAS flat connector from NAS small trailer347 viewsThe connector with the three exposed pins is the end that would commonly be located at the trailer hitch end, (front), of a small NAS lightweight trailer that has no electric brakes. This plug would connect into the flat 4 pin connector at the rear of the 3.

Note the order of the pin functions and wire colours: White is ground; the next pin is for tail/marker lights using the Brown wire; the Yellow conductor is for the left turn signal, and the far pin uses the Green conductor for the right turn signal.

There is no separate brake light conductor as NAS spec vehicles most often combine the brake and signal light functions to the same bulb filament rather separate filaments in different bulbs. The LR factory harness resolves that design difference.

Fortunately, the Land Rover NAS assembly pin order for the 4 pin flat plug maintains the above described conventions.
Air Distribution and Filtering Systems1690 viewsThis is 3 page pdf with coloured drawings of the air distribution ducting for the front air system.

Also included is a sketch of the pollen filter location within the front heater ducting. Note that two types of filters are available: a) the cheaper dust/pollen filter and b), the activated carbon filter that removes smells from the air. Installing the more expensive activated carbon filter means you never smell a cattle truck or chicken farm again. It really works.

Aerial Fin Image_20061020 (2).pdf
Land Rover Aerial Fin images for both Glass and Metal Roof Disco3 / LR3735 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 drawing177 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.

Alternator female plug looking down into top289 viewsThis shows the plug connected to the alternator wiring harness looking down into the top of the plug.

The cavity marked 1 is the AS or BATT SENSE and the wire colour most likely has Brown/Green on it.
The cavity marked 2 is the RC or ALT CON and the wire colour most likely has Red/White on it.
The cavity marked 3 is the L1 or ALT MON and the wire colour likely has Green/White on it.

I say "most likely" as the wire colours are not always the same on all vehicles.
Also the terminal 1 conductor destination is more likely C0570-175 rather than per the jpg.

The #3 pin is located closest to the big B+ terminal.

Aux Battery vent 8.jpg
BCI Group 40R Deka 640RMF battery showing vent hose run forward to windshield washer reservoir area 1335 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.

Black Deposits to interior of Brake Light Switch2627 viewsThere are two contacts, one on each side of the vertical plunger under the copper metal. The set of normally open contacts on the left side that carries the power for the brake light filaments, (15 amp fuse F15P), is apparently not heavy enough as the contacts deteriorate and generate the black residue.

The set of normally closed contacts on the other side appear to be sized OK. There is not as much current, (5 amp fuse F66P), flowing thru the contacts to the ABS module, however the contacts are likely adversely affected by the black residue produced by the other deteriorating set of contacts.

One presumes/hopes that the newer replacement switch now has contacts heavy enough to carry the brake light power. It would be ideal if the ABS set of contacts were sealed from the brake light contacts to prevent contamination of the normally closed set of contacts.
Brake Switch Visible thru Opening4602 viewsThe blue and white bit is the switch; the sort of gold appearing box,(it is really black), you will not see in your 3 as it is a Smooth Talker brand amplifier for my Blackberry phone antenna. This install is detailed in the SmoothTalker phone antenna section of my gallery.

One way to remove and install the switch is to lower the "horizontal" panel above the brake pedal as shown where the flashlight head is located. To actually remove the switch, you slide your hand thru the gap and rotate the switch clockwise 1/4 turn while watching thru the rectangular opening. Installation of the new switch is the reverse of above - 1/4 turn counterclockwise.

Before you remove the switch, note its orientation - horizontal with electrical wires to the left. That is the way it should look after replacement as well.

The second time I replaced the switch, I did it all thru the rectangular opening and did not remove the horizontal panel - that is experience helping out.

The knee kick you have to remove regardless. It is sort of hinged at the bottom so you just pull at the top and sort of rotate the knee panel and then pull upwards for two plastic "fingers" to clear the slots they reside in.
Smooth Talker Amplifier Box mounted below near steering column.169 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.
Black Deposits on Brake Light Switch Plunger2572 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.
Vertical Breather Hose before cutting off OEM cap.1566 viewsThis shows the plastic vertical breather tubing and OEM cap prior to being cut off. The tubing is located on the driver side at the front near the radiator. One cuts about 3/4" to 1" off from the top. The TSB says 20mm.

I tried blowing thru the cut off piece and was not very successful. The cap seemed plugged. I am beginning to think that there was a very good reason for Land Rovers's Technical Service Bulletin, (TSB).

Central Door Locking Operation Description1337 viewsThis 17 page pdf explains how the door locks are supposed to operate. Note that on page 9/17, the explanation of the operation of the hood ajar switch is wrong. It operates similar to the door and tailgate ajar switches; that is when a "door" is closed, the switch is closed to maintain a ground back to the CJB. Opening the hood, door, or tailgate removes the ground breaking the circuit and hence allows for an alarm condition.
RHS view371 viewsSHows the Front Runner (SA) slimline windcheetah rack which is immensely strong. Takes my 110kg (oh gawd, I must get back on the diet and exercise regime) tramping over it when loading/unloading gear without a problem. Fittings are simply fixed or removed, and IMO very well designed and made. IPF 800 series driving and spots fitted to the front of the rack. IPF cam/reversing fitted each side and to rear of rack for negotiating rocky wadis at night. The G4 stickers were bought off E-bay as a set.

Long Ranger auxilairy fuel tank pump switch and tank gauge307 viewsFitted to the right of the air vent thumbwheel, the neat combination switch and gauge take sup no room at all. Switch locks on or off, but no pump running warning lamp! Contents of the tank are indicated by 5 LEDS, 4 green and 1 red for full, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4 and empty. Pump transfer rate of just 2 litres p/min is disappointing. I transfer on the move when main tank is at 1/4.

Long Ranger tank (painted black) nestles where orignal spare was fitted.
2009 MY?237 viewsThe wheelarches, door sills, and door mirror bodies have all been sprayed to match the body colour. Same as 2009 MY?

Cooling system hoses - 4.4L petrol V81025 viewsThese are the cooling system hoses on the 4.4L petrol V8. The little odd shaped bleeder hose, (LR006158), shown in the top right hand corner can give problems. There is a plastic tee with a threaded air bleeder outlet located in the middle of the hose. The plastic tee can or will fail due to I guess heat distress.

A BIC pen can serve as a field fix, however for your parts kit, a nominal 3/8" ID hose size brass hose barb inline connector plus a couple of hose clamps is suggested. Better yet is a threaded hose barb brass coupling or a tee and bleeder valve to allow bleeding of the line. Land Rover now makes the plastic bleeder valve that breaks available as a separate part, # LR027661, where 0 is a zero. As such, one can now purchase that part only for addition to your field fix parts kit.

D4 Bluetooth AH42 10F845 AA module connected to 12VDC and MOST1014 viewsThis jpg shows the MOST bus connected to the AH42 10F845 AA module used in the D4 as well as +12VDC power from F58P connected. The power is split with a Y harness as the IHU (radio) for some reason required +12VDC power to the C2115-10 "mute" pin to keep the radio/CD audio from muting all the time.

With power on the pin, the radio audio does mute as it should when the cell phone rings and the hands free connects. The brown conductor feeds to C2115-10 and the blue to the module.

The module tucks up and hides behind the grey plastic section covering the forward portion of the passenger side tranny hump for left hand drive vehicles; for RHD, it would be located on the left side.

The pairing code is 2121 with this setup and not 1234 or 0000.

Deka BCI 40R EN T6 aux battery 0379.pdf
Deka Battery Dimension Data573 viewsThe battery size that I installed for my auxiliary was a BCI 40R battery as it was for me the easiest to fit and was also a cranking battery. The case profile was such that no tie down fins were located on either bottom end, (sides yes), and length wise, it was only about 11" (290 mm) long. As such, I did not have to grind the nibs at the front bottom of the plastic surround.

I did however raise the bottom of the battery above the angled nibs as I set the battery on a 1" (25mm) high plastic spacer. The total height, (battery plus spacer), was about 8" (200mm) so the battery top still fit under the Land Rover factory cover.

For the Aux battery, when I replaced the 40R, I installed an Interstate BCI 47 which is similar in size to a DIN H5. I was therefore able to eliminate the vertical spacer as the Group 47/H5 is the same height as the DIN H7/H8 stock LR spec starting battery. As such, the standard battery tie down bolts can be used without modification. The Group 47 battery is 9 11/16" long x 6 7/8" wide x 7 1/2" (190mm) high.
Cooling System - Description and Operation 4.0L and 4.4L petrol engines 5 pages756 viewsThis is a 5 page pdf that provides some insight into how the coolant flows thru all the hoses. Of interest is the paragraph,(page 3/5), that attempts to explain how and why the thermostat is designed to open at different engine operating temperatures - in brief, the reason for the spaghetti tangle of small hoses on the top of the engine.

There is also reference to an engine oil cooler that I gather cools something I think related to a supercharger, if fitted.

Fluid, Filter/Pan Combo removal and install5565 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.

Exploded Parts view calling up 6R60/80 and 6HP26/28 variations2850 viewsThis single page jpg exploded parts view indicates some commonality between the Ford and ZF versions of the early and later six speed units. Technically this sheet is for the RWD units as there are variations between plain RWD units, 4WD, and AWD. The transmission in the LR3 is called by ZF to be a 6HP26X and by LR in some publications, the 6HP26

Front coupler pad to right front under air filter housing 145 viewsCoupler Pad is attached to the flat metal surface just behind the rectangular drain off of the air filter housing. The last 3 inches (75mm) of the 1/4" (5mm) black flex wiring loom was then threaded over the last bit of wiring. One of the other jpg's is less washed out and shows the coupler pad a bit better.

Front Coupler pad to right front under air filter housing 144 viewsThe brighter white "square" behind the black air cleaner drain is the Coupler Pad location I chose for the right front corner. The 1/4", (5mm), black wiring loom carries a single blue colour conductor between the power supply and pad.
A second coupler pad, (white conductor), is located near the left rear tail light. The mounting location is accessible from the rear compartment access "door" where the trailer hitch wiring attaches to the factory loom.

MS Excel chart of fuel usage in TDV6 first 3 months of ownership194 viewsReason for distortion at beginning is not known - average so far is 11.55l/100k (25.09mpg) for the 6 199k travelled. The fuel usage 'bumps' correspond with the city driving although they did mirror the cost for a while! A copy of the spreadsheet (105kb) that shows MPG and l/100k (but not miles) is available for the asking - just PM me.
