    Hi All,

    First time 4x4 owner. I recently purchased a 2001 Landy Freelander 1.8 Petrol SE.

    I did do a little research on the subject and know the 1.8 Petrol engine is supposed to be a bit crap.
    This one had one lady owner 15 stamps in the book, head gasket done at 22k I think and it’s currently got 49k on the clock. Everything works fine windows, sunroof, mirrors, heated seats etc.
    I have just swapped out the stereo and will stick some new speakers in with maybe a subwoofer too .

    The only one thing I have noticed is a slight grinding noise from the center bearing. Is it the viscosity bearing.
    I’m thinking of taking it to to garage to have it looked at but if it’s not a to bigger job to swap them out I can do it.
    (Could someone advise me please?)

    Apart from that I’m now looking to add things such as light guards, side rails, front bulls with lights, rear exhaust protector, snorkel and some monster tyres.


    I’m from Sheffield, would love to take her for some off-roading but unsure where to go so again any advice would be great.

    Thanks a bunch
