Discovery 3 steering wheel

I am looking into replacing the steering wheel on my Discovery 3. I have been using a DiskLock to help immobilize the car and this has gotten so hot in the summer sun that it has melted the soft leather on the steering wheel. This is now getting quite irritating to hold during longer journeys and the leather itself has become sticky, so my hand sticks to it after just a few minutes.

Is it worth changing the wheel or is there a cheaper and easier solution like a NICE cover?

SOURCE: Hi, i have a manual

All Land rovers suffer from clonks in take upo of drive. Most common is that the gearbox mainshaft not only wears itself but also wears the input gear of the transfer box. They can also exhibit this problem from other parts such as drive shaft and drive plate spline wear, worn radius arm bushes, A frame top ball joint, engine and or gearbox mountings. If the clonk is coming from the prop shafts, then by the time you hear or feel the clonk, the prop shaft is propably for throwing. They have big problems with prop universal joints and usually are replaced quite often.
Hope this helps

If the smoke is from the LH front wheel area it could be the parking heater exhaust. This is normal to see in cold weather conditions.

you've got to jack the vehicle up and rock the tire/wheel assembly back and forth from right to left, as if being turned by the steering wheel while you look to see which joints are loose. if there's clunking, it will be very loose and obvious just by looking. sometimes though you've got to put your hand on the joint to feel for play.

Why is the car still noisy after replacing power steering pump, reservoir, and pully on a 2003 landrover discovery ?


Could be air in the system. No need to bleed it - ensure the reservoir is full, then turn the steering wheel from lock to lock a couple of times and it will self-bleed. If the noise persists, maybe it is not the steering causing it - maybe like the fan assembly or water pump.

See the article on "noises" at www.graemecooper.com.au.

The steering damper on my 1997 land rover discovery is broken. the replacement part is on back order. can i drive it until the part arrives?


It certainly can be driven, but when going over bumps, the steering wheel will jump around in your hand a bit. I would advise not replacing with a factory OEM damper as companies like ARB make a much heavier dirty model and will last and work a lot better

I have a 2002 land rover discovery and the horn appears to be stuck but I don't know where. I had to take off the fuse to stop the horn blowing. What should I do?


Actually the horn buttons on the steering wheel break routinely, Un jam the button and replace it, You have to be brave though as the airbag has to be disconnected to remove the steering wheel

2004 pacifica service immobilizer message on. Car will not start using both sets of keys. Please help!!!


There is a little black plug under the steering wheel near the center console. That little plug is the immobilizer I believe. If it is loose or missing, the car will not do anything, hopefully yours is laying in the floorboard somewhere!

2002 buick regal won't start


I have a 2003 buick regal. I found a small cover or tab about 3/4 of an inch square under the bottom of the steering column cover. If you remove that tab and take a thin object , like a phillips screwdriver and shove it up that hole it will release the ignition so you can turn it back and pull out your key. What a great discovery!

Automatic engine immobilizer wo'nt reset


The immobilizer does not "lock" the ignition, it does not energize the fuel injection relay. What you have is a "locked" steering column. Put the key in the ignition, and pull/turn the steering wheel HARD left or right, whilst turning the key to on or start. Do BOTH at the same time.The action of you pulling on the steering wheel will unlock the steering column.
