2008 land rover lr2 alternator replacment

Can I get a couple step by step instructions to get access to remove the alternator? I have the dreaded coolant leak. That is a different issue to be resolved. But my alternator is pooched! But can someone please direct me how to get to the alternator. I have the alternator, and want to get moving, but I don't want to tear into this just by ripping everything out that I "think" needs removed. I assume I have to remove the air plenum, but that is where I need some guidance. What all do I have to remove, loosen, etc to get the intake out of the way. And which gaskets etc am I going to need for this replacement. Thanks in advance, Much appreciated if anyone can assist. -Stephanie

1st are u sure its a bad alternator-cud be a worn main wire on the back causing resistence--get a haynes manual at a partstore or web--read safety part first or just look it ovr and see if u can handle this task--certain tools and xperienc may b needed--finding a gud private mechanic by askin him questions may b easier

How to chang starter on 2008 lr2 land rover engine


Why do you want to change the starter? Check out the earth strap before doing anything expensive. Then get a hammer and tap around the solenoid (the small cylinder fixed to to the starter) because rust can cause failure) and that may work for some time. If you must change the starter, DISCONNECT the battery first. Then LABEL the electrical leads and note where each is attached to the starter and solenoid. The starter requires only two bolts to be removed and the whole unit slides forwards out of the housing. Replace exactly the same way.

My 2008 Land Rover LR2 HSE key fob won't


So did you fix your problem? I'm now having the same exact problem. The key simply doesn't work; HOWEVER, I know the key is not dead. I also have a 2008 LR2 and there is no "Battery" in the key fob. I compained countless times to the dealer that the key would just stop unlocking doors on me. They told me the battery charges when it is in the ignition but there is no battery to replace. They recommeded I rotate my main and spare key to make sure they're both always charged. Well, I do, and same problem.

This problem started one year ago and I complained that I should not have to spend $500 for them to replace the key... because a 3-year-old key SHOULD NOT be dying. And not to mention, a large chunk of that $500 is for them to "program" the key.

I have an appointment on Friday at a certified Land Rover repair shop but NOT the dealer. The shop I called said the '08 LR2 has "huge key issues." I have had it with Land Rover and their lack of interest in helping deal with the problem, which I might add is clearly THEIR problem, if so many are having similar problems.

I will post an update after my appointment Friday.

How to replace LR2 Third Brake Light


The Freelander is Land Rover's entry-level crossover SUV. Unlike other Land Rover vehicles that use a traditional "truck," body-on-frame chassis, the Freelander is built on a unibody, front-wheel drive car chassis. The Freelander is sometimes known in the U.S. as the "LR2."

1 Purchase replacement bulb P21/5W, available at most auto parts stores and at any Land Rover
dealer.

2 Turn off engine and open rear cargo door.

3 Remove the two Torx screws from the side of the tail light assembly. Carefully pull the assembly
away and unplug the electrical harness.

4 Turn the assembly over to access the bulb modules. There are three separate bulb modules; the
top module should be the brake light.

5 Rotate the bulb module counterclockwise to release it from the tail light assembly. Push the bulb
down (into the module) and turn it counterclockwise to remove it from the module.

6 Insert the new bulb into the bulb module. Carefully push the bulb down and turn it clockwise.
Reinsert the bulb module into the tail light assembly and turn it clockwise.

7 Reconnect the electrical harness to the tail light assembly. Remount the tail light assembly and
replace the Torx screws.
