    Hi Guys

    I have lurked for a few years now managing to sort a lot of the problems on my disco3 05 myself.
    Being an eight stone lady this is no mean feat I tell thee,changing the tyre took 2 men and I lol.

    So thanks for helping us lurkers out there tis a great forum.

    Iv now had the dreaded epb failure,car refusing to move,I managed to get it to the garage thanks to reading the site and using the pull thingy under the epb switch with the thingy from the boot (very technical eh?)

    I now need an electric handbrake actuator motor for the fix,cant really afford a new one.

    Any help would be much apprieciated

    Why do you think you need a new part.
    Why not reset the old one?

    I get that sort of thing off eBay but they're breaking P38s left right and centre.

    Electronic handbrake? Oh, Land Rover, when did you lose the plot?!

    @Bethmeg I drive past these most days and they always seem to have Disco 3 and 4's being dismantled
