Right, just to sum up:

Part no: 1348651,( still a currently sold part). upto 6a999999. No reported failures.

Part number: LR002465, (superceeded to LR013487) 7a000001 to 8a457085.... Has anyone had any fail in this chassis range?

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

Part number LR007798 (superceeded to LR013487) 9a508510 to 9a510121.. Has anyone had any fail in this chassis range?

Part number LR013487 9a510122 on, inc 3.0. seems like the solution to 7a/8a/9a models?

Would be handy those that have had failures to look to see which part number range you fall into, then we will have a better idea of who has to worry!



I think it's important to find out which chassis range/part numbers are failing, so wondered if you want to add the chassis ranges above to the survey as well as the model years

regards
Steve

Not sure I can combine the datasets required into one poll Steve ...we may have to do a seperate poll for that. What do we think is the most important info to collate ...or is it a combo of everything? Smile

I would suggest we collate the model year info from the existing poll, then when we know if there is a definite trend, we can target the part numbers involved.

I don't think we are going to get high numbers polling here! Whilst its a worrying and a hot topic on the forum, there are actually not that many failures.

Believe DG was correct, my first D3 was a 54 plate - not sure about a 04 plate but seem to remember they might have been available for journalists prior to launch.

There's an 04 plater in Inverness, well there was a while ago, but I think the MY number started at 05 then. Bit of back to the future. Thumbs Up

Don't suppose there is a way to PM all members and ask them to take part in the survey, that would give a huge coverage given the number of members.

I am already surprised by the number on the original topic

Hi, there is the same case in Russia with SALLAAA148A461587. It has been reported in LR-club Russia pages. The car was about 140 000 km mileage. The belt was not changed due to mileage. The car was served with all LR recommendations. It happened in Finland. Our club mate from Moscow was in Finland on vacation with his family.
Finish dealer just checked that the belt was broken. Owner decided to do such repairing at home. Than the car was delivered to Saint Pet. Still in repairing there. Both headers and oil pump to be replaced. The first version was that the tensioner was overtightened. Belt condition was Ok. And also the piece of engine's oil pump has been broken. But when I knew your cases I decided to report the case there.


PS. The photo demonstrates how the car has been delivered to the Russian border. At the border it was pick-uped by the Russian track to Saint Petersburg. Unfortunately there is no photos of damage. As the owner is in Moscow now.
