    Hi folks

    New to the forum ,appreciate you taking the time to read my question.

    Noticed a few drops of oil on the driveway today and took a couple photos from where I think it's coming from.

    It's a 2014 range rover vogue v6.

    Thanks ahead of time

    All Land Rover products mark their territory. Never seen an L405 close up, seem not to sell well here in France, more Sports and Ejokes.

    Couple of thoughts, have you had any work done recently, what is supposed to be on the threaded thing and have you wiped area clean to see where it comes from?

    It's about the right time. First ones were 2013, so sounds about right :(

    And with it being an L405 i'm guessing it'll be 10x more complicated than the L322..


    Nice looking car though, shame they're already showing the signs!!!!

    Judging by the reliability figures, many start breaking as soon as they leave the showroom.:eek:

    I don't want to think what the RR section of Landyzone will look like a 10+ years! :confused::D

    I wager the L405 will be worse than the L322. :oops:

    I’ll go with Wammer’s verdict here :)

    Bit concerned about those electrical connectors. I’ve not got mine here to compare, but is the protective cover missing?

    Good point, first time I've noticed the electrical connectors bare. I'll follow up ASAP.

    You may be some while some of the people from "the other place" take a look under their cars for the first time :D

    So, to save you waiting, here's what it looks like once the panels are removed from under the receiver hitch fittings. These pictures were taken after the receiver was fitted, but before the rear panels were put back in place. Do you have the complete black plastic "box" on the underside?

    Hey, imagine how smoothly this would go if we had a L405 category! Oh, did I mention that before?! :D
