Since a couple of weeks I am facing problems with my iddling speed. It sometimes stays up at 1250rpm and only after releasing the break pedal, it falls down to 750 to 800rpm. Every know and then, the iddling speed goes up to a maximum of 3000rpm without any interfeerence. I also notice, that the between shifting gears, the engine rpm does not fall back to minimum quick enough.
According to the service station, the accelerator potentiometer (Part # SLD100061) is faulty and gives the wrong output voltage. However, I took the Bosch Potentimeter apart and checked all the contacts but could not discover any wear out or other abnormalities.

Due to the enormous price of the part (approx. AUD 1,200 without labour), I am very reluctant to change it before having checked all the other possibilities.

Did anyone experience similar problems with her/his Freely?

Thanks for your comments and best regards from down under

I Hope that you have solved your problem by now, but if not I had a similar problem on my 1998 exdi and found that it was caused by a bad/loose connection in the cable harness up against the bulkhead on the left side of the egine compartment. I could stop the problem by moving the cables.
I disconnect all the cables and sprayed with contact cleaner and reseated.

END OF PROBLEM. Good Luck

Sorry - I cannot help with the problem - it could be sensors though which are telling the ECU to keep revs up - one of these could be the potentiometer.

If you need to get another one and are prepared to buy second hand - try Triumph Rover Spares in Londsale (Adelaide). They wreck freelanders and will have any bits you need for a lot less than $1200. They are very helpful.
