If you've never done it before:

It will make it easier if you remove the rad, etc, gives you a lot more room.

First thing, try to undo the crank pulley.The crank pulley will eitherfall off or be seized to the crankshaft. I use a 3/4 drive socket andratchet to undo the nut. Put the gearbox in 4th, hit the tool with abig hammer. Take out of gear if you move the nut.

If you can't move the nut, at least you haven't wasted your time stripping parts off.

Drain the water.
You will need to take the Viscous Fan off. This has a LEFT Hand thread,undo clockwise. Then the fan pulley, as the bolts that hold the pump ongo back to the block.

Turn the engine to the timing mark. take the pulley off. Remove the cover. Check that the pump is on the timing mark. the locking Pin should go in (at about 11 o clock I think). If not it's 180 degrees out. Turn engine around a full turn.
(I would retime it, but it would probably confuse you, and it would take too much explaining via this message.)

There should be a mark on the camshaft sprocket, this should line upwith a mark on a casting. Put the pump lock in. If you don't it canmove when you take the belt off. The cam and crank should stay put.

The belts can be a pig to get on. Make sure the tight side is from thecrank, to the cam, round the pump and the slack side round thetensioner. Set the tension of the belt. Check the cam hasn't turned.

If all looks OK, new gaskets, and fit back together.

Allow plenty of time, don't get distracted, double check the marks and don't rush it.

If you get a problem, stop, think about it and then carry on. They area bit daunting for the first time. Once you've done one, the next timeis easy.

PS the 300 TDi is about 35 minutes to do.

I have a 2002 Land Rover Freelander that is stuck in Park. The stop light switch has been replaced with an autozone part, but it still does not work. The break lights are also not working.

This might help you. Otherwise, just find a mechanic you trust and have him or her check the brake light bulbs. It could also be fuse problems. Check the diagram for your lights or check your manual.

For your fuse box diagram:

I can't find the two rear timing belts freelander 02 2.5 V6

I just did the timing belts on mine; there is one main timing belt that connects to the crank, water pump, tentioner, idler, and to the intake cams on each head. The small timing belts are at each head at the rear of the head where the intake cam belts to the exhaust cams. If you pay like $30 on website you can subscribe for an online repair manual for the vehicle; where they have instructions and diagrams. If you look on YOUTUBE under the search for "rover kv6 timing belt replacement" there is films on this engine.
