    Try Goldwagen for bilstein shocks for the FL2. O.R. LP4A. If you like fiddling the door lock can be opened and repaired.

    Discovery 3 Re: 5a and 6a Vin.

    Not so sure. Iíve seen broken cranks in both. My first rebuild was a 6A. If you want to mitigate the risk change oil every 10k kms and change oil pump now

    Only a tweak on the current. You would only encounter problems when you go to lower altitudes. Up here in gunteng you donít need to do anything.

    Re: 2008 Diesel Captiva starting issues

    If it starts when you tow then it most likely an injector leaking. Does it run ok once you have it started?

    Do the decat on the 4. If you want to do EGR you will need software. Get the aftermarket control arms with the better bushes. The front diff is normally the bearing on one side that goes. Not too...

    That cover is tricky to remove without damage. You need a thin screwdriver to push the securing clips in then itís easy to get the handle out

    It shouldnít need pairing. First try a reset of the whole vehicle. Does the new unit at least accept cds showing it has power?
  30. Discovery 3 AMK original or generic compressor replacement?

    Some of the generics are ok. A lot of the cheap Chinese copies are crap. Rather get from LP4A. You will get a decent generic. If you want to go to Hitachi you will need to change the software
