  1. Hello there. The thrust bearing is a common problem on them. Mine is bad when cold but noise goes away once warmed up, a friend of mines td5 is just starting to do the same thing, Land rover owner international had this fault in ther ecommon problems booklet they suggest its not a problem and just to replce it the next time you change the clutch and that it wont cause any damage. Hope this is of interest. Pete.
  2. No get it sorted or you'll be looking at a new compressor and not just an air suspension unit. Ive had my disco just over a year now and im on the third compressor since owning it. Just my personal opinion, see what everyone else says. Also, i got my suspension unit from paddock, they are non genuine but v.good as they are a pushfit connection, just like plumbing and can be easily disconnected again, very handy. If you do have a new compressor make sure the air intake filter is checked and an uprated one put on as this was not done at the land rover garage i went to an 6months later the compressor failed again to water ingress through the filter that should of been changed as its a recall part, they wouldnt even refund ne the full amount as is was water ingrees and his isnt covered on the compressor warranty. Hope ive been of some help, ive had lots of help from this site so its goo to help others when i can. Pete.
  3. The srs light has come up on the wifes td4 02plate freelander, i have checked the seat belt pre-tensioners and wiggled them about abit as this regulary happens on my td5 disco from people with big feet kicking the connector blocks, but hasnt made the light go out which normally works on the disco. So any ideas would be great as not worth £50 to get it plugged in for a trivial thing. P.s. it hasnt had a bump or anything like that, the light just appeared other day. Many Thanks. Pete.
  4. Hello, just quick question, does anyone know why everytime i unlock my disco the rear wiper moves up 6inches? press it again and it moves again? all the doors still unlock as usual though? Any help would be great! Also, is it ok to run my disco td5 without the big black engine cover? or is it a heat sheild? Just want to check. Thanks. Pete.

  9. Hello, just changed an airbag on drivers side on my 51plate disco. The air bag filled up nicley and went into shape perfectly. Turned engine of and put the wheel back on and restarted engine to finish filling the suspension but it wont lift the disco off the stops! Not sure if compressor is firing up now! would it of cut out if overheated? The compressor is only 5months old. Any help would be brilliant as cant drive it with the ow bar almost on the deck!!!!!!!!! Thanks. Pete.
