    LR3/4 3rd Row Window Replacement

    I too was thinking about something like this for the LR3. Those windows are wasted space (except for the antennas for sure). Saw a fitted molle panel insert for the third row window for FourRunners while at the expo. Since we sleep in the back of our Rover with a nice memoryfoam mattress, I was...

    Looking for advice from seasoned adventurers

    I don’t see a specific ask, so I’ll give some suggestions. First, regarding the LR3. How many miles do you have on it, and has it been maintained well? I ask only bc all of our LR3s are currently getting up there in age and mileage, and you don’t want a major issue when doing a trip like that...

    LR4 vs LR3 front-end suspension height differences?

    Hey there- At last weekend’s Overland Expo West we took a test ride with the new Disco 5 on their off-road course. The vehicle was really impressive on 30 degree off-cambers. I still can’t get over the terribly ugly back-end and overall curviness, but I digress. While driving with our...

    2005 LR3 MAP Sensor Location?

    These are super helpful responses, thank you! I thought I was losing my mind looking all over for it. I did replace the MAF and PCV sensors b/c my head gasket seal blew last year and the rover started running increasingly terrible after having the gasket replaced. Figure I'd change all three...

    2005 LR3 MAP Sensor Location?

    Hi there- I'm attempting to replace the MAP sensor on my LR3, and cannot for the life of me find where it's at. Is it behind the back of the engine, near the transmission dipstick? I'm working off this illustration, and still at a loss. (Don't get me started on the poor nature of LR's...

    LR3 (LR4 RRS) air strut replacement job step by step

    Speaking as someone who is a visual learner, I’d very much appreciate a video of this, though that may be a huge ask. Regardless, love it described here. Thank you!

    LR3 Leaking sunroof/wet floors, after drain plugs into side body have been replaced

    Awesome, thank you for this. I'll check when I'm in there with the cowl replacement. It just arrived this week and expecting some warmish dry weather this weekend. Thank you all again!

    LR3 Leaking sunroof/wet floors, after drain plugs into side body have been replaced

    Ah, this makes perfect sense now. Just saw the Youtube vid link posted above and I now see exactly what you're saying. Seems like a simple thing to do--will just need to ensure that the cowling sits flush (and seals again) with the cover made for the HVAC intake. Not a bad idea either. As...

    LR3 Leaking sunroof/wet floors, after drain plugs into side body have been replaced

    (and a video on where the HVAC intake is, along with how to replace the cowl: )

    LR3 Leaking sunroof/wet floors, after drain plugs into side body have been replaced

    Replying to my own post--looks like a good way to determine if the cowl is indeed leaking, instead of the sunroof vents, you can check by seeing if the cabin air filter is wet or not. If it is, likely the cowl is leaking. If not, it's probably the sunroof drains. (Posting this in case others...

    LR3 Leaking sunroof/wet floors, after drain plugs into side body have been replaced

    Excellent to know. Any pointers/links on doing this particular sealant, or where the HVAC intake is located?

    LR3 Leaking sunroof/wet floors, after drain plugs into side body have been replaced

    Perfect, really appreciate the assistance. I think I'll replace the cowl anyway and purchase from Lucky 8, as I absolutely don't want this water damage to total the car (as I've heard from my indie LR mechanic saying he's seen often in our area).

    LR3 Leaking sunroof/wet floors, after drain plugs into side body have been replaced

    Ah interesting. This could be it. Did you find the floor of both the driver and passenger side wet due to the cowl issue? And good point on the A/C issue. I’ll look into it when I have the dash out this spring (have some other projects like installing an iPad to replace the crappy GPS and a...

    LR3 Leaking sunroof/wet floors, after drain plugs into side body have been replaced

    Interesting--I didn't know about the C pillar drains. I assume C pillars are in the very back, next to the rear tailgate. I don't see any dampness back there. Hoping they just fell out or something, but doubt that both would fall out, made pretty certain they were fully seated when I had...
