    Hi Freelander Fans,

    So I picked myself up a 2004 Freelander 1 recently and have been working through some of the nuances. Nothing major so far but one tedious problem (but not a particularly urgent one) is the Parking Assistance isn't audible. I've checked all the rear sensors and all are clicking away when in reverse and the LED on the dash button constantly flashes. I've no idea if it's a bust speaker, ECU or something else.

    I'm wondering if anyone has managed to fix these before? Obviously it's not essential and I don't really need it but I'd like it to work!

    I've looked at a replacement speaker and they're were around £27 which seemed ridiculous. Are there any after market alternatives to replace the entire system that anyone would recommend?

    Cheers.

    I am sure you could find a speaker for it but what you need is the info off the old one like watts and Ohms it will not hurt if you put a slightly bigger one in but do not put a smaller ohms or watts one in

    There's no rating on the speaker. It's sealed in a plastic housing. My ECU was faulty so removed the system completely. I then spent £10 on a complete replacement assembly. I sold the speaker and dash switch on for £30. So I was £20 up and gave myself a spare switch space for my LED light bar switch.

    Thinking about it. My switch light was flashing too. I binned the system as I said.
