    hard brake pedal

    The vacuum pipe has a one way valve which can block with carbon, and will give u that symptom, you may have two valves one each end as my 3.9 disco has, so remove and soak in brake cleaner fluid or similar to clean and replace, problem gone as mine did, that’s if that your issue. 😋
  3. You have already asked your question in a previous thread, and a reply showing the components involved with the internal mirror. There’s nothing called “shoe”. Give us the description and I’ll look in my parts catalogue for the part number, which will be obsolete nowadays, so won’t be a lot of use.
  4. Not the part number but it’s a correct discription of the items that do have a part number which u can use in your www search. https://allbrit.de/epc.cfm?PAGE=C01290&CAR=L2&SPRACHE=EN

    Happy you have resolve your discos issue, it’s a known problem with the receiver. Re. the access code, that’s normal... enter the code but don’t lock lock the vehicle there’s no need to enter it again, then because you re locked the access code had to be re entered again, I assume that’s what u did.🙂

    3.9v8 not starting

    It’s something that to my engine a few years ago. Run a temporary wire from the battery + to your coil + then see if it starts. If so I tell u what to do. There’s no need now to remove the dash as stated in the link above which also has a few technical errors in it.

    New relays if required, take your pick on the price. https://www.lrdirect.com/AFU2913L-Rly-Fuel-Injection/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAh9njBRCYARIsALJhQkFFxu-bLdHmWv4qT5GLT2nqXeHiZYaOH9gLDIq_quleFWqppJTO3gYaAiNtEALw_wcB

    V8i random starting problem.

    That will be the Bosch relay then with the parallel terminals 😋 therefore the oxy heaters and fuel pump are working simultaneously ... so Ooops I made a error the relay is not the change over variety although the LR diagram shows it as 87 & 87a.

    V8i random starting problem.

    The correct relay for the V8 EFI system fitted to the D1 has terminal 87 and terminal 87a which is a change over relay, according to the disco’s EFI diagram. There another relay with a dual 87 terminals are just in parallel, plus theres the common relay with a single 87 terminal.

    V8i random starting problem.

    The symptoms that your disco has is very similar failing immobiliser. Fortunately as you have a1994 disco you don’t have the passive ‘spider’ immobiliser which was introduced with the 1996MY disco which is known to have issues, such as intermittent starting, it happened to me, but a single wire overcame that issue so fortunately no need to remove the front of the dash. Testing your pump relay is simple when remover, just a 12v supply and a multimeter is all that’s required, if you can hear it clicking your halfway there, or of course you could just replace it. Do you know where to find the relay? The ignition amplifier on your vehicle is attached to the distributor so could fail intermittently due to the hot environment in that area. LR moved the amp to a new location with the 1996MY and positioned it near to the coil at the rear of the slam panel on it own heat sink and linked it back to the distributor with is own dedicated cable. So no heat issues. That’s it and now back to work.

    Sunroofs again

    Drain holes! For owners that open and tilt their sunroof while it’s covered with water, hence drains only at the front of the sunroof. 💦

    Sunroofs again

    Why go to the trouble of making something that’s water tight to replace the sunroofs, when all u have to do is replace one or both of the existing seals.

    disco 1 3.5 v8 cut out on downhill

    Remove it and give it a quick spray of brake cleaner, they have been known to carbon up but normally they are clean unless there’s a underlying course.
