After removing the engine cover and disconnecting the battery ,disconnect the air pipes that run across the manifold , these are normally brittle so handle them gently , remove them by pushing the clip at the base of the pipe down while pulling the pipe out.Do this with the fuel pipes too .The inlet manifold is held on by 4 bolts found next to the inlet pipes.There is also a bracket behind the manifold held on by two philips screws.When you refit the new manifold , apply some rubber grease on the o-rings as not to pinch them.Get you radio code before you disconnect the battery.

Which engine has your free lander got if it is a v6 petrol you will probably find the inlet manifold flaps have broken up inside , new manifold is needed and is about 30 mins to fit , let me no if its not a v6 !

1.5 L. single overhead cam engine / 125000 KM. runsgreat, idles smooth but when run up and above approx. 1500 rpm there is a rattling noise coming from what sounds like a marble bouncing around in a...

This could be bearing (rod or crankshaft) rattle or a rod cap that is coming loose- I lost one engine thinking it was only an exhaust line hitting somewhere. You might try (using appropriate caution around moving parts) using a long screwdriver with the blade touching various points along the cam shaft cover or the block itself and placing the handle end on or behind your ear. One can often locate the area of the noise fairly accurately.
Modern engine analyzer can often diagnose such a sound and it might be worth a few bucks to have it analyzed before it becomes a death rattle.
BTW, we have 3 vehicles, not counting our kids' various junkers, and each time a new one enters the stables, we buy the Haynes service manual for it; for the few dollars, they can help avoid unnecessary trips to a service shop and give you an idea why the labor costs are so high (if they are.)

2004 Freelander Coolant Leak

With problems like this the only sure way is to go to a workshop and get them to pressure test the cooling system, that is if you dont have a pressure tester yourself. Then it should be seen where you are losing coolant. It may leak from any where, hoses, loose clips, even the filler cap. Is there any sign of antifreeze that has dried
hope this helps
