Problems / Driver door handle
« on: July 16, 2018, 04:34:50 PM »
I've just gone to open the driver door and there was a click from the handle and the door didn't open. Handle just lifts up but doesn't do anything now. Door still opens from inside normally. Doors still lock etc.
 What has broken and how do I fix it?
Thanks in advance.

I'm not going to bother with those prices. I may look for one of those new touch screen things. Saying that, I rarely play CDs and never use a satnav.. it's just radio 2 or Kiss FM in my car.

My X5 has the small screen thing on the dash. If I wanted to put in the later side screen type is it a straight swap?

Thanks for that. What are the exhaust blanks? Do you mean the bits on the bumper that surround the tailpipes?

I have two new rear pdc sensors to fit on the near side. I can reach them from underneath but how do they come out? Chuffing things are well wedged..

Possible. I dont know how easy that is to remove on a V8. Our other X5 had the same noise too although not as pronounced. I had to really listen hard to hear it.

First before taking everything apart... Get a vacuum cleaner and put the suction hose over the small grills on the ac control panel and see if that clears it. I do that every time I clean out the car.

Probably not. There is a small access hole but when I looked in mine there didn't seem to be any room or bolts visible. If it is the flex plate then it will be cracked.
On mine I can hear a slight knocking on idle but it goes away when I drive. I spoke to a chap by me who is a auto trans specialist and had the same on his 4,4 range rover. He replaced the TC to fix it. He quoted me £1600 to do mine.
I may flush my trans fluid soon to see if that helps. Mine has been like that for nearly 2 yrs. Its silent when cold as well.

I did mine the other day. Cost - £0. I took the headlights out, sanded witha bit of 2000 I had laying around then polished up with my car body mop. All I need now is something to seal them with. I thought about spraying with laquer but they are too polished to do that now..

What about the flex plate or torque converter? They can sound similar to bottom end.

No- I know where the filler is its just ive never used an lpg vehicle before or even seen an lpg pump at a station..
There is a small round indicator on the dash which has a single led at the top and a row of leds at the bottom. Sort of like a smiley face. When the engine is started the single led is red which I assume is lpg off as after the engine gets a bit warmer it turns green. The row underneath are constantly flashing green but I don't know what that means. Yet.

Just bought a 4.2 supercharged range rover with lpg. I put £40 of petrol in it to get me 50miles home and some but it ran on lpg on the way back so the petrol gauge didnt move.
I have no idea how to go about filling it up with lpg when the time comes tho..
