Question about 2004 Land Rover Range Rover
I'd like to start doing my own repairs and maintenance on the Rover and was wondering if a repair manual existed for the 2004 Range Rover.
Also, I tried to replace my own pads and could get the caliper off.
Any advice for an aspiring Do-it-yourselfer?
Uh... software, pistons, abs??? this guy definately does not know car mechanics. brakes are all mechanical and the abs system has nothing to do with the brakes directly.
To compress pistons, there are two steps. one, open brake fluid reservoir cap to allow easier compression.
two, turn hub assembly outward toward you so you can see the pad and caliper. insert large flat head screwdriver between pad and rotor and pry slowly towards the piston. adjust when needed to keep pressure in the center of the piston.
there are two allen "hex" key bolts, hidden under plastic caps. loosen those and remove. These are the slider bolts that the calipers float on. remove the calipers. there are two 16" bolts that hold the caliper bracket to the hub. remove those to remove the rotors.

Well if you couldnt remove caliper then better finding a local repair shop,also but iam not sure on this model but you cannot change pads as the vehicle has ABS and only the dealer has the software to allow the pistons in the caliper to retract.so go cap in hand to dealer and be prepared to lay the golden egg,as for a manual yes you can buy a haynes book but i personaly think you would be wasting your money.I changed pads on a merc recently and as i couldnt push pistons in i released the bleed screw.what a disaster yes i got the pads in but the immobiliser cut in and the car ended up in the merc garage,870€ or their abouts as they fitted new disks as well and trust me nothing wrong with old ones.When i went back with owner they went on, that the bar code of the packet for the pads has to be put in and recognised by the computer in germany or it will not release the immobiliser.VW are also like it now as well so iam told ,but havent done one yet .so check it out first in dealer before you evan ask local spanner man to have a look.
