Land Rover Discovery Common Problems and Solutions
Active cornering system problems
The pipes on the active cornering system are prone to breaking. If these pipes are not replaced quickly enough it can damage the complete active cornering system. A good way to determine if they are leaking is to check the pipes next to the wheels and suspension components; if there is red fluid clinging to them, they will need to be replaced.
Replacing the pipes will resolve the issue. We can help you find the replacement pipes at a very low price. Search for your Land Rover Discovery replacement active cornering system pipes through Breakeryard.com.
Misfiring/lack of power
Are you having problems with the vehicle misfiring and/or experience a lack of power when accelerating? These are two common symptoms of the throttle body and/or the MAF (Mass Air Flow sensor) being clogged up.
You will need to clean the throttle body and/or MAF sensor to sort the problem. Watch the video below to see how this is done and save yourself a fortune in the process:
Rear seat strap failure
On vehicles which have the interior formation featuring the third row of seats, the straps that you use to fold down the seats are known for pulling off. If they pull off it makes it practically impossible to fold the seats up or down, becoming a serious inconvenience for car owners.
You will need to re-fit the straps to resolve the issue.
Electric handbrake failure
The electric handbrake on the Discovery is prone to failure. If you are finding that the handbrake is not able to hold the weight of the vehicle on a hill and/or the fault light is flashing on the dashboard, then the handbrake needs to be modified.
There has been a service campaign update by Land Rover to make the electric handbrake more reliable. They will make the necessary modifications to fix the problem, otherwise you are responsible for making the alterations yourself.
