    Send Muply a pm. He's moved down from the glorious Freelander, but will still help you out.

    Regarding rear bumper not sitting right, there are 2 slightly raised bits below body lights, which need hammered in, do it a bit at a time,need to go down about 4-5 inches with this. I take it you have removed the L shape brackets.
    I have a couple of the back tailgate plastic panels if anyone is interested, makes a big difference, cost over 110 from dealers

    Guys i've just finished my facelift conversion.... I had to make some 50mm spacers to bring the aluminium bumper armature out so that i could secure the bumper to it. After reading all the threads here about the facelift i can't see one that mentioned this?? Are you fitting the later bumper armatures also??

    I know this thread is old, but does anyone have any step by step photos as to the freelander facelift? This will be being done over the coming months on a 2003 freelander once I have sourced all the parts. A quick step by step guide would be brilliant if it was available!

    Thank you
