I'm putting this ere so I can link to it.

If you can see adverts on this page selling car repair manuals, DONT click on them. They're sneaky adverts from google which detect words used in this fred, on the chance you will be attracted to click on said advert. The adverts are trying to get you to pay for manuals which you can get from the links below, for FREE.

This post provides free links to download the rave disk for free. Free as in you don't pay for it. There are a number of people selling the same free rave disk on e.bay. Don't be fooled by their advertising. They're charging you for the same information you get here for free.

There's a number of free rave disks available from the links below which cover the repair of Land Rover products.
These are free to download.

rave01.iso = 624meg
rave02.iso = 476meg
rave03.iso = 432meg

Click the link below to download specific .iso files. When asked click on "download" (or click on the "download arrow" in the top right hand corner of the dropbox screen). When the drop down menu appears click "direct download". Then select "save as". You must download the file as a .iso file.

rave01.iso = rave01 = Discovery 2, Freelander 1 (2001 onwards) 1.8 / Td4 / v6
rave02.iso = rave02 = Range Rover P38 and L322, Defender (up to 2002) 200/300tdi and v8
rave03.iso = rave03 = Range Rover classic tdi/v8, Discovery 1995 onwards mpi/Tdi/v8, Freelander 1.8/L series


The rave disks download as .iso image files. After downloading them you need to use 7-zip or winzip type programs to open them, to allow you to copy the rave folder out of the .iso image file.

WinZip users:
Download the .iso file to yer computer. Right click the .iso file on yer computer and select "extract to here" and it will create a new folder with the contents of the .iso file in it. Go into the new folder and double click the rave.exe application file to start using rave.

7zip users:
Download the .iso file to yer computer. Right click the .iso file on yer computer and select "extract here" and it will create a new folder with the contents of the .iso file in it. Go into the new folder and double click the rave.exe application file to start using rave.

**********************
This is an alternative site: http://www.green-oval.com to use to download the same files. Lots of people already use this site which is why it stops working occasionally. Please use the Drop Box link above in preference so we don't overload green-oval. The files are also free to download from that site. Click on the links below. A "save as" option will appear:

rave01.iso = rave01 = Discovery 2, Freelander 1 (2001 onwards) 1.8 / Td4 / v6
rave02.iso = rave02 = Range Rover P38 and L322, Defender (up to 2002) 200/300tdi and v8
rave03.iso = rave03 = Range Rover classic tdi/v8, Discovery 1995 onwards mpi/Tdi/v8, Freelander 1.8/L series

Click on the links to open the download screen - slow to open but they do work:

You can also download the rave disk as separate pdf files ere: oops stopped working!


For Freelander 2 manuals you need to look ere: Freelander 2 repair and maintenance manual

Hi Hippo and co
got the rave manuals and opened but missing all sections of interest to me like the repair fuel system diesel and other TD4 sections.
Anyone have any ideas they will be most welcome as have a freelander td4 2005 in bits and need some tech info!!
cheers
 
I don't know where you got your Rave manual from and whether it is 'original' - ie an ISO image with all the necessary files. Some downloads are converted to stand alone PDFs and may not have everything copied over correctly. I believe this is the last Rave manual produced for Freelander....

http://www.mydocz.com/Landie/rave2000.iso

For Freelanders up to 2000, this is the appropriate Rave manual...

http://www.mydocz.com/Landie/rave97.iso

This only works on Windows and you need software to open the file and show it as a drive letter (eg E: ). I use "Virtual CloneDrive". When you open the file it shows it as a drive letter (like your hard drive is shown as C: ) in Windows Explorer. You can click into it and the Rave directory - then run Rave.exe - it gives you a front end menu to the various documents.

rave01 covers the FL1 Td4. That's all there is for the Td4

The rave2000.iso on my site covers TD4, K Series and KV6. There's a rave97.iso also on my site that's for the early K & L Series cars.
I think you'll find the rave's your giving out are the same as those above. There's only 3 versions, with contents as per the first post. The individual rave files available are just pdf's of the original raves, in separate files. Those in the top post came from myrangerover but that site was down for some time. They're the originals, same as the green oval site which disappeared for over a year at one point.
 
Hi Hippo and GrumpyGel. cheers guys, good efforts. The link Grumpygel sent worked and got the full Rave. Took some effort to get the clone drive prog working on my windows laptop but success. Cheers now!!
 
Hi, downloaded the link for the Rave Freelander (thank you), however it is not working on my android tablet?

Downloaded winzip but this does not extract, so tried winrar and this did extract but when I try Rave exe or any other files, I get the error message 'encrypted file'?

I just need a wiring diagram to trace a fault causing a fuse to blow when braking a Freelander V6.

Any ideas?

TIA

Regards

Dave

I think you will find it will not work as it would on a windows laptop, one way to get around it, but it does not work the exact same way, as internal links will not work. Is to print it as a pdf once opened on a laptop and save it like that.

Cheers
