    Hello!

    You've stumbled across Landy Zone! Now you've introduced yourself, have a look on the main forum menu page and have a nosy in the regional landyzoners section. You'll be able to see which members of the forum live near you, which may come in useful if you want a fellow head scratcher when trying to decide on what size tyres to fit to your landy, or pin pointing where that rattle is coming from;) If you're really lucky, you may have regional meet ups or laning days you can get involved with!

    Go and say hello!!!!! :D

    Hi, Just joined the forum, I am planning my first freelander, some where in the 2005/6 region and will be taking a look through some of the posts to see what to look out for. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thanks Chris

    Hi all, New to Land Rovers but already loving it.
    I used to (still have a lot of love for them) be a Volvo guy, but circumstances had me buy a Disco2 TD5 '98 and I am hooked.

    Live in the Isle of Man which has a 4x4 forum, but not specific Land Rover. And wouldn't mind the more specific and bigger group of like minded people.

    Already found a lot of useful stuff on here before I joined, so thanks for that.

    Hi ,

    Welcome to the looneyzone,

    You have a fellow Manx or two on here, one of them is @Shimsteriom . He also has a D2.

    Hope you have the RAVE manual, EKA code, a friend with diagnostics.

    Cheers

    @RBoshuis

    Nice motors the D2 TD5.

    Just a couple of things you may find useful.
    Download the RAVE manual, it has the workshop and owners manuals in them.
    http://www.myrangerover.co.uk/rave-workshop-manual/

    Try and see if you can find a friend or make a new one with the nanocom / hawkeye/ lynx that works on the D2 , you may need their help at some point.

    Ref the EKA code, have a read of the attachment named alarms in this link.
    https://www.landyzone.co.uk/land-rover/handy-buying-alarm-info.311291/


    Apart from that, any questions , chuck them in the Discovery section.

    Cheers

    Now, if @RBoshuis is anywhere near Kirk Michael, I'll be even more shocked!... But then I suppose everywhere is near everywhere else in the Island.

    Haha exactly, anything that is more than 5min drive is considered far away here

    I live in Greeba, but my Disco gets me anywhere, even Kirk Michael

    No not yet, haven't had the time nor pleasure. Also not sure my D2 is fully up to the task YET.
    But love an intro.

    I used to be a member years ago when I had a D1 and did some quite heavy off-roading, but when I sold that, I lost touch with the group itself. I've been meaning to go on a lane run with them since getting the D2, but it's had a couple of issues which I've almost fixed, so would be more than happy to tag along with you if you do decide to go on a lane run with them.
    Also, as Neilly said, you need to get your EKA code, which I can help you with as I have a diagnostics unit which will work with any D2. If you check through your paperwork, you might find that the PO has written it down somewhere on it. Sorry, the EKA is the Emergency Key Access code and can be used to get in and start the car if the batteries go dead in your key fobs, and the ECU hasn't been configured to disarm the alarm / immobiliser using only the key itself.

    I will spend some time and money on mine first. I need to see how rotten she is before I take her on heavy duty and spoil everyone's day by falling apart halfway in haha.
    But I will definitely try and do that this summer.

    The purchase was fast and easy with next to no papeework privately.
    I knew I wasn't buying a new car, and didn't pay for perfection either. So your help with the EKA would be great thanks!
    I did already had to get my radio code online haha.

    Let me know when you're free and feel up for it.

    As mine is still a daily use car, I wouldn't use it for anything serious at the moment, but the club does Shiny Lanes for those of us who'd like to do some off-roading, but don't really want to cause any damage to the car. I'm free most weekends, and work in Douglas, so just let me know when you want to get your EKA code and I'll drop by.

    That definitely sounds like the option for me, as mine is for daily use mostly as well. I've seen some cheap options in the UK as well, so might get one as spare

    I'm not sure yet, but how are you set for tomorrow?

    *edit: apparently one needs to press "post reply" before visible haha. Had this open since this morning.
