      Hi, I’m seriously thinking about buying a Freelander 2. I need some help deciding which year to buy, what to look out for and what kind of mileage would be acceptable. Any tips would be appreciated.

      I’m new to driving and bought a Freelander 1.8petrol mk1 2005 for me and my small family.

      It’s rather basic and has not been modified in any way.

      what are the largest tyres and alloys I can put on the car myself without having to do any type of modifying?

      I have very basic understanding of car jargon so please can you kindly keep it simply, please.

      Thanks

      Terry

        Why you are asking several people the same question?

      Hi,
      I'm looking at a low oil pressure on my Defender 200TDi and was directed to you. After looking at the o ring on the skew gear,I found the bearing is shot. I replaced this when I rebuilt the engine last Christmas. Have you ever seen this bearing wear?
      Thanks

      Hi
      Was wondering if u can help me with a stiff suspension on a 2012 sport supercharged.
      The air suspension seems fine and moves up and down, however i noticed that the rear hydraulic sway bar has a leak. Can this cause the Active cornering to stiffen the ride

      Hiya young James, long time no see almost.
      its the old "easye 1"
      So much under the bridge so they say, my much loved early 3 door disco long gone, went to a collector your way somewhere. i ventured into a shiny black TD4 auto, as my left leg got worse so need autos now.. Hope your well, and the world continues as It should.
      cheers..

      Good afternoon sir, as a knowledgeable man on the subject, could you please give me some advice on gearbox oil for my defender td5. Recommendation is for MTF94 so presume this is best but have you any advice on one over another? You have Westway and Smith & Allen's Geartech in the low twenties per 5l up to LR at over sixty.
      Is there that much difference?
      Thanks James, appreciate any advice.

      Hi James sorry to bother you I’m trying to phase a prop. 1) if I’ve put the castor rite after a lift should I still need to rephase my prop, 2) I’ve been 4 settings each way from the standard Land Rover phasing and still no joy at all, so do you think there is any point carrying on or do you think there is something wrong, I’ve even taken the prop off twice to check it’s that. Many thanks for your time
