The fly wheel bolts will not line up unless you turn the flywheel one hole at a time The arrangement is so that the balance of the flywheel in relation to the crank shaft is maintained . So offer up the flywheel and see how many holes line up . turn it one hole at a time and more holes will line up . Keep going until all the bolts screw in finger tight . If you have a tight one then move the flywheel again as all the bolts have to fit finger tight and not need force to turn

SOURCE: Fuel Filter in Freelander (replacing)

The fuel filter is located below the electrics box, half way between the battery and the bulkhead on the passenger side, under the bonnet. It is very difficult to see how it all fits, but it has a central screw which holds the plastic filter housing/mounting in place. Find this screw (which is a small self tapper) and be prepared to loose it, or use a magnetic screw driver. Then lift the plastic housing up and away, (towards the engine) be ready with loads of rags to catch the diesel fuel when you disconnect the pipes. There is an earth wire attached to the housing also. (anti interference, I think) It is quite a fiddle getting it back again, as it has two locating lugs on the back of the plastic housing/mounting.
