Re: Rear Spoiler Corner Trims

Was told in June that JLR had told dealer not to change plastic trims under warranty, ask me to take photos so that they could present a case, didn’t get around to it due to Lockdown.

Re: Any recommendations for Towing mirrors?

Have used Mileno aero for years, On D3 then D4 which had same mirrors as Velar, some have put bike inertube over bottom clip So it grips to stop it sliding on plastic, as it slopes outward, not sure if latest mirrors have rubber pad already? I used self adhesive bicycle repair patch 👍

Re: Another Tow Bar question - Coupling weight

You can check nose weight with a purpose bought weight checker, or bathroom scales and piece of wood cut to the same height as tow ball on car (less height of scale) to the floor, placed in hitch onto scales, then move things around in caravan to get correct weight on tow bar. 👍

100kg is the down force on the tow bar, or the maximum nose weight (down force ) of the trailer on the tow bar. Hope this helps

It is run and administered by Car Care, and they Do not cover known manufacturing faults, This is why I changed my D4, at 3 years and only 15k with the worry of not covering crank shaft issues, I decided to change rather tha...

Re: Deployable Towbar & Steps Fittment

Spoke to dealer regarding this, he said parts maybe available BUT Landrover may not let it be activated, would have to ask Technical if it could be active?
