    Hi

    Just bought a 2010 Freelander 2 HSE TD4 i will use the car as a bit of a work horse as i did with my previous 95 Disco ES the car yard put on a tow bar for me but i need the roof rails(and crossbars :-note it has the sunroofs)and i also removed the light bar and whole wiring loom from my Disco and was planning to fit it to the Freelander via a bushranger x-bar which is ADR compliant.So i removed the headlight assembly to check things out and found that the Highbeam bulb (H7) has a specific special connector that holds the globe in as well as providing the power so i cannot use the existing harness that came with the light bar as the lightbar harness is meant to plug into the globe then the existing car harness plugs into it to give the high beam only power for the light bar to work via the relay switch.If i used that setup there would be nothing to hold the globe in as on the Disco the globe is held in by it's own spring clip then the plug is pushed on,so what i am asking is how can i get over this problem with the light harness and does anyone know about the roof rails/crossbars etc for a Freelander 2 and are the OEM's worth the money.....jbird49

    Your 95 Disco uses one H4 light globe. Main beam and high beam in the one unit. The Freelander will have 2 H4 globes. You will need a similar piggy back H7 plug. Or add/splice a plug into the existing high beam loom and add the plug to the spotty loom.

    Before I had a Land Rover I did not have any torque wrenches. Now I have three.

    Hi Bohica as i said when i pulled the light assy out it is a H7 main beam and whatever the xenon low/high globe is by law it has to be wired into the high beam only.The problem is that unlike my old disco the globe on the high beam is not held in with the normal spring clips it is held in by the big square black plastic block that doubles as the power supply plug so unless i can get another type of piggy back adapter that will hold the globe in as well i think it will have to be the second option of hard wiring it in to the high beam circuit.I have seen a few freelander 2s with light bars so i was hoping that someone here might have had the answer on a compatible piggy back plug like i had on the disco....jbird49
