    As we've just rolled over 85,000km in 3.5 years here's the quote to have the F&R diffs done plus transfer case.

    • Transfer Case Oil - $170.42
    • Front Diff Oil - $146.60
    • Rear diff Oil - $146.60
    • Labour - $216
    • GST - $67.96


    BTW LR reckons these only need to be changed at 260,000km or 10 years.

    Add rear disc pads, hopefully rotors are within spec, plus an EAS compressor that is acting kind of weird at times and the credit card may take a beating. This is a milestone service for our D4 so I'm hoping to not have to repeat it over the next 3 years of ownership.

    Given we have towed either an Ultimate or AOR Q+ for 90% of the distance travelled I reckon that's pretty cheap insurance. If it was anything else I would be on my second or third set of suspension by now.

    I remain totally happy with the performance and reliability of the car thus far. Servicing is for me at least and given our high duty cycle relatively low cost insurance

    Don't forget to replace the plastic coolant outlet LR73372 before it splits/leaks, at the same time check top hose LR095544 is not wearing where the engine cover crosses it.Earlier 3.0lts blowing smoke on acceleration update oil drain to LR087351 on 2nd turbo.

    I had told them about 2 weeks before it wasn't operating properly....sometimes not holding the vehicle when applied, but the service manager didn't seem concerned. "We'll check it when you bring it in".
    Horrid screeching came from it when the RAC was checking it.
    I reckon it was constantly wearing as we drove and as far as I'm aware it's never been adjusted.
    A lesson learned there.

    Mid-Life make over suggestions

    My car has just got to 130 000km, been a dream run really serviced it lovingly, auto box oil changed @ 50K and again at 100K, diff, transfer and front diff oils at 80k, engine oil every 13k, only just done front brake pads and rotors, rears done at 80k, brake fluid every 2 years, Alloy coolant inlet manifold, some "1's" and "0's" manipulated in the ecu to solve the EGR question and release some more enthusiasm when ever I feel the need. I realise some of this work is not as per service schedule but due vehicle age and a planned extended caravan trip want to include some additional work to give it a new lease on life.
    So the request to the dealer is

    1. 130,000km A schedule service
    2. As per 7 year service schedule Front and Rear Camshaft belts, HP Fuel Pump belt(s) and ancillary drive belt.
    3. Engine coolant pump, engine coolant and hoses. The intent here is to replace flexible hoses that are in contact with engine coolant and are accessible with body off that are otherwise not able to be changed.
    4. Alternator - plenty of info on the forum about that
    5. Inlet manifolds Left hand and Right hand, as above
    6. Flexible brake hoses (as per 7 year schedule) and brake fluid change. These very vital components have a life and are sooooooo overlooked by most people
    7. Front and Rear Air Spring/damper assembly
    8. Rear brake disc rotors and pads.


    Any other suggestions for service items that are best accessed with body off would be appreciated.

    I will sit down before opening the quote

    $20k there at least

    Have a very close look see at turbo items and mechanisms while you can access them.

    Remove EGR coolant system and plumbing if they are disabled.
