How to fit a diesel pump on a landrovertd5

Firstly, remember the TD5 is a common rail engine. It's only fuel pump (unless you have a webasto auxillary heater) is the in-tank high pressure pump. This is accessed through a panel in the boot floor.

Discovery td5 want start when cold

If the engine was starting ok before you changed the pump, then it must be something you have done or disturbed, retrace you steps, make sure all pipes are tight connections are good etc

I have recently bought an automatic td5 2004 with 73000 miles

Sounds like you may have a air leak on your fuel line if the pump is working a lot. Unless the ticking is as you turn the key in which case it's more of a click and is in fact the starter solenoid. May be best to re-post in the 2004 discovery section though as the 1997 is a 300-tdi and different animal all together.

Where is the fuel filter located in my land rover discovery?

On the diesel engine TD5 it is mounted in the engine compartment, you cannot miss it.
On the petrol engine V8 it is mounted on the fuel pump inside the fuel tank,
Hope this helps

Landrover discovery fuel pump

Has it got power to the pump, if it has then the pump has gone, if not then check the in-line fuse in the fuse box.
