Question about 2008 Land Rover LR2

2 Answers

Our 2008 or 2009 LR2 landrover quite suddenly, at the end of a journey and following the opening if the trunk decided that the trunk would not close again. We have tried numerous solutions but the catch seems to be set in the open position. Can you help?

    The engine is working fine - we have just driven home. Everything other than the trunk latch seems ok.

    the engine is fine and the rest of the car seems fine- just the trunk latch which won't close.

    Hi, the latch is closed and can be push open but will not stay open. We have taken the car to the dealer to fix. Apparently the motor for the latch was broken and they have replaced it. Thanks for trying to help. Nick

Is this a two part question regarding the engine quit and latch will not secure the door? Please clarify. Thanks.

    Can you coax the latch arm with a small flat head screwdriver and see if it is just hung up?

You have a unibody vehicle. After running it, the heat will make it move/stretch. Things don't quite align properly. Think about it like your house when the sun sets and you start hearing it creaking and popping. Or between winter and summer, when the doors or windows don't close the same. Same applies to vehicles.

Hi belindacavey,

I have seen a few problems with the cooling fan on Land Rovers. Usually the relay portion of the fan fails. For a while Land Rover had fans on back-order because so many where failing. I would recommend having the fan/relay checked. FYI the relay module and the fan are usually one assembly.

One or both support struts may be defective. Disconnect them both from the trunk lid and lay the ends down into the trunk. You will need to support the trunk lid while doing this and the lid will be quite heavier. Now close the lid to latch. Did it latch first attempt? Check for the dash message. If all appears well, replace both struts.

Trunk pull Down Motor Suddenly stopped working


did it quit making the noise when you lightly push down on the trunk? most people slam these trunks and your not suppose to you are only to put light pressure on them and they pull it closed theirself.. you might check your relays under the hood and look in the box lid to see which one it is.. if this is not the problem you might have to replace the motor to the latch .. you might check with a test light to see if there is power to the motor first though .. thanks and holler if you have more Jerry .
