09 Removing disk brake.jpg
09 Starting to remove the seized brake assembly295 viewsBy this time we\'d poured about 8l of water on the dull-red glowing and burning wheel assembly (too close to 140l of 98 octane petrol). Sudden cooling cracked the disk brake which showed mangled park brake parts. How to remove a brake disk without the right star fitting? First remove the caliper then get a sledge hammer?!!

Engine Accessory Drive Description and Operation799 viewsThis 2 page pdf shows both belts for the 4.4L petrol V8; the primary serpentine belt, (the long one), and the shorter secondary that drives only the radiator cooling fan.

The various accessory pulleys the two belts are each associated with are numbered and an included table describes each.

When replacing belts and pulleys, count the number of grooves on both your old items and your new replacement parts. It has been known for an pulley with the wrong number of grooves to come with a replacement part or the replacement belt has the incorrect number of grooves; hence make certain the groove count on the new parts are the same as the removed items.

Alternator and Regulator Wiring Diagrams, TDV6 and petrol V8 and V61793 viewsThis is a three page pdf that shows the alternator and regulator wiring for the petrol V6, petrol V8 and TDV6. The pdf can be either printed or by right clicking on the displayed pdf, rotated as required for viewing.

Of interest is that the regulator gets its instructions primarily from the Engine Control Module (ECM) and only secondarily from the vehicles electrical buss. The conductor from the battery thru the 5 amp fuse F20E is to provide initial power to excite the alternator at startup and then secondarily, to instruct it if the PWM signals were not available. Primary instructions to and from the ECM are thru the two other conductors via a digital like Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) signal.

If F20E, the 5 amp engine compartment fuse box fuse is blown, the red alternator light on the dash will be illuminated. This means that the alternator could be OK, but if the F20E fuse is blown, no electricity will be generated. Hence check the F20E fuse if you get a red ALT light or some indication of the alternator not working.

Regarding operation of the red ALT light on the dash, it is not the regulator within the alternator that tells the red light to illuminate, or not, but instead the ECM. This is the reason the red light does not function in the same manner as with older vehicles. With the 3, sometimes you have illumination and sometimes not depending upon what the ECM is thinking. What this means is that you can have an alternator that is failing but the red light does not illuminate as the ECM is compensating for reduced alternator output - maybe by draining the battery and or cutting back on vehicle electrical loads such as shutting off or cycling the radio amplifier or heated seats.

Cooling system hoses - 4.4L petrol V81049 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.

Cooling System - Description and Operation 4.0L and 4.4L petrol engines 5 pages807 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 install5645 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 Battery Charger Grill View 0481.JPG
Battery Maintainer pigtail sticking out of Grill695 viewsThis is all you see when everything is put back together - just the pigtail and Weather Pack blanking plug. Most often, I have it all tucked back behind the grill.

In winter, there may be a second cord hanging out as well - the 120 VAC power cord for the engine block heater, a tea kettle like element inserted in the engine block. NAS petrol V8's do not have the Fuel Burning Heater, (FBH), installed, but instead in cold area markets have the block heater element assembly available as a dealer installed option. There is an argument to say that the heating element is factory installed in all cold climate V8 gasoline engines, however the appropriate power cord is not. If true, this means that all one needs to purchase is the area specific power cord and plugging in / attachment to the engine block located block heater.

As such, you will often see a conventional 120VAC three prong power plug hanging loose out of the grill of most vehicles here in the wintertime. In summer, most drivers tuck the plug back behind the grill as it is no beauty mark.
LR3 FASKIT panel viewed from front 0471.JPG
View from front left side looking towards rear aux battery compartment under cover 604 viewsAs there is no Fuel Burning Heater in the NAS V8 petrol vehicles, there is space available to install the FASKIT panel here. The piping is such that each air spring can be isolated from the air system and then filled one at a time manually via the Schrader valve. There are five Schrader valves and five shutoff valves. The fifth valve nearest the gauge controls air from the compressor, and can provide fill up air via a jumper fill line assuming the compressor is still operational.

LR3 Denso Alternator YLE500390 pulley view787 viewsNote the DENSO sticker on the side. Denso calls their nominal 150 amp 12 Volt alternator an SC2 design. SC means Segment Conductor which apparently increase the winding density of the stator coil, hence yielding a physically smaller lighter alternator for a given output. I presume the 2 means the second try at getting it right. A Denso part number is 4280003690 for the alternator, (there are others, as below).

Rotation is clockwise and the 54mm diameter pulley has 6 grooves (PV6x54). Count the pulley grooves on both the one you remove and your new one - some replacement alternators seem to ship with 5 or 7 grooves so you might be swapping pulleys.

A previous LR part number was YLE500190 for the older variation of the newer YLE500390 unit.

An additional part number for a factory rebuilt is Nippon Denso 210-0569 for the petrol V8 alternator. Other Nippon Denso numbers include 104210-3690 and 104210-3691. The Lester number is 11206 which relates to another Denso number of 290-5287. WAI uses 11206N.

From 2006 to 2009, the internal regulator is a Transpo IN6349 and of the B circuit type if it can be said that applies to PWM, (Pulse Width Modulated), regulators.

The "regulator" inside the alternator is therefore really not a regulator in the old sense of the term but instead an instruction receiver from the ECM that translates Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) signals into a form that the alternator understands – digital like signals from the Engine Control Module(ECM) into analogue like signals that the windings understand.
LR3 Denso Alternator YLE500390 rear view689 viewsThis picture shows the rear of the YLE500390, the Land Rover part number for a newer design alternator utilizing the Transpo IN6349 regulator with the "hidden" cooling fins. Note the visual difference in the rear view of the next file jpg.

If the alternator is a rebuilt, (service exchange unit), but Land Rover supplied, then the part number is LR008860 or similar. (Note that 0 in LR0 is zero.)

Two Denso part numbers exist for the alternator as well, 4280003690 and 4280003691. The rating of the petrol V8 alternator is nominal 12 VDC and 150 amps. In normal day to day operation, they seem to run about 14VDC - usually between 13.9 and 14.1 volts at the OBD port.

For the petrol V6, the LR service exchange number is LR008862, and the 2.7TDV6 is LR008861.

The bridge rectifier within the alternator is a 12 diode avalanche type, 117mm diameter, as used in Nippondenso 120 to 160 amp alternators with the Hair Pin stator. It is similar to a Transpo INR421 which is rated for 120 to 150 amp alternators. That is probably our primary problem - the rectifier is just too light. Alternate part numbers for the bridge rectifier are Cargo 237607, Mobiltron RM-29 and AS ARC6021.

Re the B+ stud, the INR421 calls it up as an M8 x 1.25 x 30 mm long course threaded stud; some say 34 mm but that may be longer than desirable.
Excel file for Rotors and Brake Pads part numbers for 4.4L V8 petrol LR3743 viewsComparing the cost of the various brands of brake parts is time consuming. Once you have your parts costs, this little spreadsheet will make collating the info easier.

I did not make any provision for labour costs, but the file can be downloaded and then modified. You can change Dollars to Euros or Pounds or whatever and insert lines for labour costs as desired.

Do not pay too much attention to the $ numbers as they are a mix of US and CDN, and from differing time frames, (prior to Spring 2011) . Also the brake part numbers are for my 2005 North America spec LR3 with the petrol 4.4L V8; diesel powered and supercharged 3's may have different part numbers

Voltage Display Page Radio Head Unit 118 14.2756 viewsThis shows the voltage/temperature/timer display page within the 6CD-465 radio head. There is a second file within this album, a doc file, that outlines the procedure to access the diagnostics.

The 14.1 volts number was the approximate vehicle system voltage with the engine running; the 118 number infers 11.8 volts which is the low power infotainment system shutdown cutoff voltage. The factory default setting is 135 or about 13.5 volts. By holding the keypad 1 button down, the 3 digit volts numbers will decrease 001 at a time until the keypad 1 button is released. Decreasing the number from 135 to some lower number should increase the time the system will remain on with the engine off.

The TEMP numbers refer to Fuel Burning Heater, (FBH), temperature values. 85 is apparently a high limit and 46 was the number when the jpg was taken. This number varies and given that there is no diesel fueled FBH in our NAS petrol engine vehicles, what the value refers to is unclear. The TIMER numbers also relate to the diesel fuel burning engine heater and perhaps make more sense being 00.

Block Heater and Cord for petrol V8 LR3 North America 120VAC481 viewsThe recommended 120VAC block heater cord is a Temro 3600003. This is a five foot long cord with what is called a Straight connector at the block heater end with holes for two pins; there is also a metal tab located between the two holes serving as the ground conductor. That cord, in addition to having the two pin holes plus ground tab end, is designed for both aluminum and brass heaters as that also matters.

The Land Rover part number for the Block Heater assembly is VUB504640 but is a Temro product not officially marketed by Temro as a Land Rover block heater. The Temro product number is 3100107 which shows as a brass body 30 mm threaded 700 watt 120VAC screw in block heater with a rectangular shaped depression and two pins suitable for the Temro 3600003 cord. Note the word BRASS as it mates with the aluminum OK.
