You can request a refund from the car manufaturer via the recall note.
write a letter to the district office, include all documentation and the recall note.

I have abs,tc and hill desent light on at same time how do I resolve and are they linked the brake master cylinder is leaking

These are most likely all related to the leak. Replace you master cylinder, this needs to be done. From there if the lights do not go out you need to address those individually.

Replacing brakes on a landrover discovery 300

Unless you are a qualified mechanic I suggest you do not atempt any brake repairs youself, If something is done wrong and your brakes fail you would not be able to forgive yourself. My advise is to book it into a specialist and pay for the job to be done right!

Stuck in park, Land Rover Discovery

Had the same problem with my 03 Disco. Went through the usual, checking the fuses, etc. I went ahead and replaced my break light switch on the brake pedal. $15.00 fix, or I thought so; still had the problem! Took it in for repairs and found out it was fuses after all... To get the parking lock to disengage you need to pull of the housing, which is tough and then press in the locking pin at the base of the shift lever to shift out of park. you can do it with the engine running and it will drive just fine until you put it into park again. Check your brake lights if there is a problem. Could be a sign of the brake switch failure. In my case the lights were out, but a cheap trailer rental did the damage. The short in the trailer blew some fuses and it was a problem that cost me $60.00 at the repair shop....

Hi Chamer,

Could be sticking exhaust valves. This sounds like like what you describe and it does rob you of power without generating lots of heat. For Series II Disco's, this is a common problem and requires a valve job to repair. Also can return after every 50,000 miles, depending on how you drive, where you drive and what fuel you purchase. Use the highest Octane you can find (94 at Sunoco). Better for your Disco and the environment too!

Regarding brake work, I use Raybestos on my Series I. No complaints. The series II has wider rotors (lucky you) so you'll have to see if Raybestos carries them. Vented rotors are better - allowing to cool down faster and better stopping ability. If money was a concern, do the brakes yourself! A valve job will run you about $2000US and a complete brake job (at the dealer) will probably be the same. $4000 is too much for me to handle in one bite!

If you do the brakes yourself, expect the following approximate costs: pads $100(fr&bk); rotors $100 each, $15 brake fluid (perform a complete flush); plus your time (0$).

Check around online for the best prices and locations. There are ways of saving and this is one of website I use often:


I found vented rotors for your Disco for $69. Far less than the $300 from your dealer.

Hope i helped.
