Morning Mikey, yep I think you mentioned that to me earlier from my previous post. However I am going by the VIN numbers in my post and assumed this was the weak part which I know you will know Thumbs Up

Part number LR007131, ( superceeded to LR013487) 8a457086 to 9a508509.... I have checked & both failures I have seen fell in this chassis range.... 50-60,000 miles, never had a belt change. Both 57 plates
 Owning a Discovery 3 is like dating a model.. a firm body and shape, wow.. the ride is fantastic >Very Happy for this your wallet can take a pounding and you worry about being deflated at any time...
SA - SWAMBO- Discovery 3 08 - SE Tonga Green
SA - Mine - Discovery 3 08 SE - Cairns Blue
UK - SWAMBO - Evoque
UK - My trusty steed - TD5 Commercial 2001 - wolf in sheep's clothing Wink
UK -oh and the STAAAG -1977 - Russet Brown only 47,000 miles from new

cambelt mounting failure

does any one know if Land rover will cover any of the costs of replacing the engine.
had the belts and tensioner replaced at main dealers 14 months and 6600 miles ago.
2007 HSE done 77,000 miles if I was advised to the time I would have had oil pump changed.
Now the mounting has failed

It has to be worth a call some people have secured large contributions towards the cost, need to have mine done as I'm on borrowed time it seems

They only contributed 50% ? You had the belts changed at a LR DEALER a short while ago, and they failed to inform you of this (by now) extremely well known, and disastrous design flaw Whistle ....LR should be responsible for the entire cost surely. Shocked You are letting them off lightly.
 

D3 owned from new, and retrofitted by me....Front Fogs, Xenons, h/lamp wash, tow electrics, Cruise Control, smooth leather steering wheel, 19" alloys, BAS FBHIC, LR013487 oil pump. NO WARRANTY for last 6.5 yrs.

not happy with what I was offered but after six phone calls was told that due to the age of my vehicle
they would not pay any more.
When I ask why was I not advised to have oil pump changed with cam belt I was told that it is not something that they advise to have done.
In other words if they advise customers to have oil pump changed they are admitting a problem.

Hi, guys

Would my 59 plate vin ending 9a5115** have the uprated pump fitted already? Mines at 101900 so due belts now.

Thanks Jamie

I spoke to a LR rep yesterday who use to work in and then managed the service dept in large Melbourne dealership for over 19 years.

He had never heard of the pump casing failing, pre or post timing belt replacement?

Of course they say that - for them to indicate otherwise is an admission of the problem and opens lots of legal doors.

Ask them why they changed the design then.

I don't think he was trying to cover up anything, he had never
Had one fail.

he acknowledged that front suspensions bushes are Censored on the D3
And recommended that the ZF transmission oil needs replacing at least every 80k for vechiles that work hard, ie tow caravans etc.

Well the Tasmanian LR independent specialists know all about it so I dont know why the dealer wouldn't, particularly as LR changed the oil pump housing to fix the well know problem.
