#4306 of 5002 extended warranty - need advise..
Jul 30, 2005 (8:16 am)
I am wondering if anyone can give me some meaningful advise.
I have a wonderful 2001 Disco II (ace) with about 46k miles. So far it has been relatively trouble free except for a leaky gasket that was fixed last month under warranty. Overall the truck has been great and has been trouble free with some minor problems but nothing major. It drives like new.
I have driven the new LR3 and was quite impressed but it did not have the same character as my truck. The dealer was quoting around $52000.00 for an HSE the way i want it and giving me $16000.00 on trade. Although it is nicer i am not sure it is $35000.00 nicer.
That being said i am thinking of keeping this thing for the long haul. I have an opportunity to purchase a land rover extended warranty from my dealer for about $2700.00 for an additional 3 years and 50,000 miles. It will cover the original terms but will not include routine maintence and wear and tear. There is a $100.00 deductible on each occurance. I have a month or 1,000 miles to make up my mind. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Seeking a non-dealer Chicagoland mechanic for my 1996 Disco SE7. With 90,000miles and an engine knocking it's time to take it in. Dealership will handle, but costs a fortune. Any referrals greatly appreciated.
#4309 of 5002 Extended Warranty - PhotoDisco

I had a 2001 Disco II SE7 (ACE) with 38K miles. Due to necessity I had to trade it in for another car. I was able to get $18.5 for it. Kelly Blue Book had the trade-in value at a little over $19K. ">Since I bought extended warranty when I purchased it, I am now working on getting some kind of refund for the unused portion of the extended warranty. For what it's worth, I paid $1900 for the same coverage back in 2001. The dealer used CNA National Warranty Corporation as the provider for the extended warranty.
#4310 of 5002 Removing jumpseats
Aug 02, 2005 (11:47 am)
On my Disco Series I it's pretty easy. It takes a big Torx bit, and ratchet. A couple of the Torx screws are tough to get at so you almost need a spanner to fit the hexagonal Torx shaft... monkey with it for awhile and you'll get it.
Make sure not to lose the dished washers, those eliminate the rattle in the jumpseat linkage once it's put back together.
FWIW, I found my jumpseats at a wrecking yard and put them in myself. It was a one-afternoon job. They're very useful and kids love to ride back there!

So the end result is.....THE ACE PUMP MAKES A NOISE ALL THE TIME.....Land Rover Encino technician Mike told me that my sound isn't a WHINING, but a WAAAAAAAWA.....who knew...and it is constantly working....so one just has to get use to it...as many of you said...or turn up the radio.....the ACE is coming back on the NEW LR sport...it will not have the same WAAAAwa noise. Thanks, Gordon

You obviously know the car and at that price, compared to what it would be at a dealer, is a steal!!!
#4314 of 5002 2001 DII SE7Horn Buttons
Aug 05, 2005 (7:06 am)
On my 2001 Discovery II SE7 the left horn button popped up and when I took it off the tip of one of the 4 prongs was broken. Then a week or so later my right horn button popped off completely and I've never been able to find it. I contacted British Pacific, but they want $91.00 for the horn assembly. Does anyone know of a source for just the buttons, at a tad less than 91 bucks, not counting shipping?? Don't get me wrong, British Pacific is a great place to do business! We LOVE or Land Rover!
