    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...

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

    Hey there- So we are getting hit with major wet snow in the west right now, and I noticed my driver and passenger side floors are wet this morning when I got in the rover. Last summer I replaced the sunroof drains as they had both deteriorated and had fallen out of their body holes. I used...

    Best Gaia maps for Baja

    Gaia should import Garmin (GPX) maps, and we were planning on importing the Cartographia E32 maps into both Gaia and LeadNav. Link: http://cartografiagps.com/en/

    2019 Baja XL... who's in?

    We unfortunately have to bow out this time around. I’ve already sold the Team GPS competition ticket but still have the 4x4 or Bike Touring (non-competitive) ticket for sale if anyone’s interested. Bummed but hoping someone else can have a killer time!

    2019 Baja XL... who's in?

    I am, I really want to study and trust my nav prior to the day before the rally. E32 maps should be sufficient according to Andrew.

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    Great stuff, as always. Didn’t know about the bonnet antenna mounts, very slick. I’m about to embark on a custom drawer build myself, so looking forward to seeing how others approach it.

    2019 Baja XL... who's in?

    It’s an excellent point. I’m sold on it—even with the concerns over reliability (which, I’ve never had a problem with in putting over 100,000 miles on it, other than the time I bumped the compressor and had to replace the bracket). It seems that way. I used it on a central NV run we did last...

    2019 Baja XL... who's in?

    Good choice! For Nav we’re currently evaluating a hybrid of E32 maps and the LeadNav app loaded onto an iPad mini permanently mounted in the vehicle. Gaia GPS is pretty good too but LeadNav is basically designed for this type of rally. A Garmin will be backup. It’s interesting you bring up air...

    2019 Baja XL... who's in?

    No joke, it’s definitely going to be a stretch. We signed up in June before the detailed stages map came out. When I first saw the map I was like... fuuuuu, what did we get ourselves into. Won’t lie, our team is having serious second thoughts on using this bike in the team race category. We...
