open up the hood and look in front of the airbox (big black box on the right). the bottle jack should be there.
the wrench and jack handle are under the rear passenger seats. to lift the seats, there should be a black button near the seat belt. hold down the button, flip the seat down and lift it up. should be in a black bag with the roof rails.
Good to have you aboard Honybears. Me guevara's suggestion is important - we found it impossible to get the wheel/lugnuts off with the factory tire iron. Also, check to see if there are antitheft locking lugnuts on your vehicle and if so make sure you have the special tool to lossen them. BTW, the original owner's manual has the radio code and other useful info in it - try to get that original manual.
27 mm (1 1/16") is the size that is specified in the manuals, but 28 (1 1/8") will do just as well so long as its a hexagonal socket (vs. the star sockets - then the 28 will slip and seize on your lug nut). I use the 28 mm because my lug nuts have been abused so much by various mechs that the 27 mm is too close a fit and I spend too much time just trying to fit it over the nut.
Ahhh, nothing like the jack location on a Disco. Especially after an hour or so of hill climbing when even the center console is starting to heat up,,, as stated above it's RIGHT,,,NEXT TO,,,the ENGINE.(?) (Were those LR engineers drinking when they made that decision?? )
I also suspect that this could be the cause for some jack failures (I've replaced it twice already). Though the hydraulic fluid is impervious to tempreature (at least the level it sees in that location), I suspect that some of the seals in the jack aren't designed for that kind of use.
Any one else have this problem? (My issue may be with the shitty jacks available here, rather the environment that they're subjected to)
