2008 range rover sport v8td has a rubbing or knocking from rear end on slow pull away.


If it were the prop, you have vibration at high speeds/out of balance. Look at the back of both wheels. If one has oil around where the rearend meets the backing plate, bad axle bearings.

Squeeky noise from Range rover 2006 HSE


Likely, that is the sound of your "wear indicators" because your brake pads are worn.

Range rover p38 problems


Go under the vehicle and check for broken exhaust pipe clamps or the pipe or muffler hitting on the undercarriage, check with the system heated up as it will expand up to 1 inch. Also you may need suspension bushings, they are pretty much done at about 100,000 mile mark.

My land rover defender steering wheel starts to shake and wobble at about 80-90km/ph and gets worse. I have had the wheel balance and alinement done but it is still there. What other causes could cause...


This is really annoying, happens with most Defenders, but is easily fixed. It is the steering damper. They are never strong enough. Best solution is to fit an additional damper onto the track rod. Remove the track rod protection bracket from under the rear of the front diff, fit a heavier track rod and mount an additional damper on the track rod. The other end of the damper is mounted on the rear of the diff (where the protection bracket was removed). Land Rover specialists such as MR Automotive in Brisbane will send you the required parts. You won't regret doing it!

Creaking noise at backend of landrover freelander 2003 model


Check the exhaust mounts on the rear silencer box 1st. Give the rear box a gentle shake. if this seems ok, the check the bushes on the rear suspension bars and mounts these look like long rods coming from the axle to the chasis. then take the rear wheels off look at the rear springs and mounts.

ABS LIGHT ON, SHIFT LOCKED, NO BRAKE LIGHT.


If your brake lights don't work Its because you blew the fuse  which Is located In the main fuse panel under steering wheel.  Without break lights your rover will fire up nice but wont shift out of park until you replace the fuse.  If your ABS Is acting up It Is also an easy fix.  Disconnect the ABS from each wheel.  You still got all wheel disc breaks that work great but no ABS.  Your other option is  thousands of $$.  If your breaks are weak check your master cylinder and make sure you got enough fluid and that you are not loosing the fluid.  If you notice you are leaking brake fluid because you have to keep filling it up but cannot find a leak anywhere.  I bet I know where It is.  Check your rear break lines and make sure one of them didn't get caught in your rear springs and pinched ever so slightly when you were doing dounuts In the snow.
Good luck,
