    I have an 05 lr3 SE with 147,000 miles. Just bought a month ago. I do not have service records of previous owners so I'm going to go ahead and have all fluids, and filters changed including belts. Where do I find recommended replacement items such as: oil and filter, air filter, rear axle oil, fuel filter, transmission fluid, plugs and any other maintanance items. Also frequency of servicing.

    Hey buddy,

    I just joined the site and have a quick question for you. I recently had Firestone tell me my front bearings were bad on my 08 LR3 HSE, which I had already started to detect because of the faint noise. I am looking to order the parts, and had 2 questions -

    1 - They said bearings, but should I get the hub and bearing set, or just bearings? I don't mind either way, just want to do it the right way.
    2 - Is there a specific brand or type I should get? They all seem pretty similar, but I am looking at these: ValuePro, Beck/Arnley, Raybestos, Timkin, MOOG, SKF.

    The ValuePro seemed similar to the others, but were drastically cheaper at 80 a piece. Beck/Arnley are around 120, Timken and Raybestos and MOOG around 160, SKF 200+

    I just want to make sure I am getting a good part, that wont flake apart or make noise etc., and mostly drive on the highway/downtown, maybe a beach, but no off road.

    Thanks so much for all your help, I really appreciate it.

    Okay, I have removed all of the pieces you suggested (battery, batt housing, fan, fan housing, air box, etc) I even removed the front grill (because someone else said so) but I still can not get the radiator out. I have removed the temp sensor and the hose to the thermostat, the screws up top on on the back of the radiator (facing the fan). what am I missing? please help and advise me what I should be doing and do next. Thank you so much in advance

    I have the same issue on my 2005 RR. The battery is dead and I can't get in with the key to jump it. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

    My navigation system used to talk to me in a very nice British voice. While the rest of the navigation system works the voice is gone and I depend on it very much as I don't like having to read the maps while driving. What controls the voice and how can I get it back?

    Hi there,

    I've just got my hands on a 2005 HSE LR3. Its awesome. The only problem is that the parking sensors aren't working properly. The light on the dashboard button is flashing, and does not turn off even when I'm cruising above 10mph. When I first bought the car, the sensor worked fine, but now whenever I'm reversing, it doesn't seem to work at all. How do I reset or reactivate the parking sensors.

    Your help would be hugely appreciated.
