Same problem as you mzplcg.

It felt to me like you're trying to turn a corner with the diff lock engaged. A sort of shuddering.

After the usual 'no fault found' comment, the workshop manager had a drive.

Turns out there's a technical service bulletin on the VIN numbers of the affected cars, so a the transfer box oil is changed, the car run and then changed again.

Why we have to argue about this stuff all the time God knows. Why don't they just do it if the car's one of the run involved, customer complaint or not?

Heigh ho.

Now on to the clunking suspension...........

Yep, although to be fair LR Customer Services have been golden with me on this.

As for your suspension knock, have you had the ARC valve block changed? There is a TSB about that too. New part became standard in 2015 so yours would likely have had the old one from new. It's the thing which operated the active roll control system.

Hello.

I've mentioned the anti-roll bar valve block (knowledge courtesy of this forum) and they're resisting doing anything about it.

They're saying they want to fit new bushes - for the second time in a few months.

You don't have any TSB info do you?

Sadly I don't, but it is very well documented. Perhaps give Customer Services a call and ask. I'm not surprised about the resistance as the part isn't cheap but mine had all the bushes done, a new front anti roll bar, new front shocks etc and still the knock was there. It was the valve body replacement which cured it.

Thanks for the reply and - progress!

The workshop manager reveals to me that apparently there's a service bulletin on the subject!

He told me as if he was handing down new and mysterious information but that if new bushes and control arms don't do it, then LR specify the changing of the valve block and anti-roll bar itself. Which is now what they're doing. Thumbs Up

I suspect that the better dealers' policy is just to get on with it, and the poorer dealers make you fight for it.

I can only imagine the reason is that LR must pay very much less for dealer's workshop time than they can get from Joe Punter?

It's a pity - I had a P38 in the late 1990's and went to Guy Salmon in Surbiton. The manager there wanted you to have every improvement going. He even used to tell you to complain about something in order to let him do it!

Guess what - huge loyalty was the result.

Just as a ps to anyone looking at this thread in the future, the new valve block did sort out the problem with the front suspension I'm pleased to say.

Also, the front juddering, the original subject of this thread, was fixed under service bulletin LTB 00906V5 (flushing transfer box).

LTB 00560L7 was also carried out while it was there - fuel sloshing in the tank.

I just experienced this issue in the last few weeks. My 16 plate TDV6 has done 20k miles, I occurs when doing some slow speed manoeuvring on full lock, I thought I had run over a brick when it first happened...quite a loud knocking. I will be speaking with my dealer asap and finding out if my car is in the affected range. 2016 L405 Vogue 3.0TDV6
