    Default Defender Td5 200k service, advice please?

    Howzit guys,

    The old girl has recently hit 200k km's, an needs to be serviced.

    I'd like to do this one myself.. who has a schedule on what needs to be done according to LR?

    So far I can think of:
    - engine oil
    - oil flter
    - fuel fiter
    - air filter
    - gearbox oil? (it's 30k old)
    - cetrifugal

    Diff and T-case oil was done about 5k km's ago.

    I don't have a schedule, but my suggestion is everything on your list, plus replace clutch and brake fluid, inspect brake pads for wear, adjust park brake, inspect poly-belt on engine and replace if necessary. Check condition of propshafts and grease. Check powersteering fluid level. Check water level in battery.

    Thanks!

    Front prop was refurbed about 3k km's ago but will be sure to grease them both.

    One thing I am concerned about is all the used oil, what do I do with it? Who do I take it to?

    Do all the brake and clutch fluids: full-flush bleed until they run clean

    These are often ignored

    I take mine to my local workshop. They all have, or should have, bins for waste oil and a method to discard of that oil responsibly.

    In the Cape, MIDAS has collection points for old oil, try them.
