08 D3 stranded with a seized smoking wheel314 viewsAbout 1 hr after replacing the blown tyre, strange noises emanated from the stability control system and speed dropped off. Then I looked in the rear view mirror, and noted a cloud of dust along with a whiff of black smoke. This led to a very quick stop (no traffic on this route for over a week, so no worries about having to signal exiting the road). Took a look and WOW. The right rear wheel was glowing a dull red colour, and burning rubber smoke was wafting from the red glow over the fuel lines.

2009-06-08 - Alligator Billabong, Kakadu National Park 073.jpg
D3 in Kakadu National Park, on the track into the Alligator Billabong47 viewsThis whle area is down on the flood-plain, so in the Wet it is all under a few inches of water. In the dry it has a hard but brittle surface, which is then chewed up in many places by the feral animals with hard hoofs such as buffalo, pigs and horses. This then turns the track into a big dust bowl which is primarily bull-dust - a soft fine powder like talcum powder, which can be many feet deep, and gets into everything. The cover on the trailer is actually black.

Gospel Pass Jan 2015125 viewsThe Gospel Pass (Welsh: Bwlch yr Efengyl) is the highest road pass in Wales. It is at the head of the Vale of Ewyas in the Black Mountains of southeast Wales.[1] The narrow mountain road climbs steeply from Hay-on-Wye to a height of 549 metres (1,801 ft) [2] above sea level, squeezing between the mountains of Twmpa to the west and Hay Bluff to the east, before dropping down into the valley to the south on its way to Llanthony Priory, Llanfihangel Crucorney and Abergavenny.

Removing the EGR Butterfly Valve Actuator1471 viewsRemove the 4 TORX screws to remove the actuator. The small black link (circled) connects the actuator drive arm with the butterfly valve spindle (arrowed). The spindle can now be very carefully levered out using a screwdriver inserted beneath the arrowed bit in the photo. A bit scary to do as it takes a fair bit of pressure before the spindle will free itself from the butterfly. Once it starts moving though, it gets easier to pull out.
Air Conditioning DrainIMGP0698.JPG
Air Conditioner Drain Hose on Drivers Side (LHD)1782 viewsThe corrugated rubber bit above and to the right of the gas pedal is the drain hose that goes down thru the carpet and floor sheet metal.

While it is bit hard to figure out from the jpg above, there is a rubber "strap" attached to the top of the corrugated hose that one uses to pull on to drag the hose up back around the black plastic heater "pan" drain. The same drain hose arrangement is on the other side as well.

One could I suppose run a plastic snap tie around the vertical pull strap if one was concerned about the hose slipping off again. See also the other jpg sketch which is from the Land Rover manual.

Brake_Switch_inside_showing_dual_contacts_7d356c68.jpg
Black Deposits to interior of Brake Light Switch2571 viewsThere are two contacts, one on each side of the vertical plunger under the copper metal. The set of normally open contacts on the left side that carries the power for the brake light filaments, (15 amp fuse F15P), is apparently not heavy enough as the contacts deteriorate and generate the black residue.

The set of normally closed contacts on the other side appear to be sized OK. There is not as much current, (5 amp fuse F66P), flowing thru the contacts to the ABS module, however the contacts are likely adversely affected by the black residue produced by the other deteriorating set of contacts.

One presumes/hopes that the newer replacement switch now has contacts heavy enough to carry the brake light power. It would be ideal if the ABS set of contacts were sealed from the brake light contacts to prevent contamination of the normally closed set of contacts.
Brake_Switch_Removal_and_Install.doc
Brake Light Switch, Find, Remove, and Install Instructions 7026 viewsThis is a two page doc outlining where to find the brake light switch, how to remove it, and then install the new one.

Note, do not move the brake pedal when removing or installing the switch. Let the brake pedal hang where it wants to. The switch design is actually cunning, and as such is supposed to make the removal and install fool proof. Hence if you think too much about it, you can wreck the new switch.

If you want to inspect the interior of the switch, wait until you have removed the old switch. You can then just unsnap the blue from the white to get it apart. Inside, the switch is quite simple, (no circuit boards), but it will probably show black dust from failing contacts.

I think the reason the switch fails is that the Normally Open, (NO), contacts of the brake light contacts were made too light to carry the current load for make and break of the tail light filaments. I also think the black dust created then fouls the Normally Closed, (NC), second set of contacts for the ABS circuit. As such, the Normally Closed contacts become intermittent in operation and display as a fluctuating open and closed circuit condition to the ABS system when the ABS should be seeing a steady closed circuit. Hopefully the replacement switch contacts are more robust and may be as I recently replaced my switch again just as a matter of maintenance. While in a redesign, ideally the NC contacts should be sealed or at least separated from the NO contacts, when I inspected the removed switch, this time there was no black dust present.

Probably the removed switch will have a Land Rover oval logo moulded into it, the new one, FOMOCO.

Brake Switch Visible thru Opening4533 viewsThe blue and white bit is the switch; the sort of gold appearing box,(it is really black), you will not see in your 3 as it is a Smooth Talker brand amplifier for my Blackberry phone antenna. This install is detailed in the SmoothTalker phone antenna section of my gallery.

One way to remove and install the switch is to lower the "horizontal" panel above the brake pedal as shown where the flashlight head is located. To actually remove the switch, you slide your hand thru the gap and rotate the switch clockwise 1/4 turn while watching thru the rectangular opening. Installation of the new switch is the reverse of above - 1/4 turn counterclockwise.

Before you remove the switch, note its orientation - horizontal with electrical wires to the left. That is the way it should look after replacement as well.

The second time I replaced the switch, I did it all thru the rectangular opening and did not remove the horizontal panel - that is experience helping out.

The knee kick you have to remove regardless. It is sort of hinged at the bottom so you just pull at the top and sort of rotate the knee panel and then pull upwards for two plastic "fingers" to clear the slots they reside in.

Smooth Talker Amplifier Box mounted below near steering column.167 viewsThe gold look box due to the lighting, (actually black), is the antenna amplifier located near the steering column. It can be put anyway but this seemed an OK location as I ran the antenna connector cable rearward from here to the back corner of the 3 and then up to the underside of the roof glass at the rear. The blue/white thing is the brake light switch that often must be replaced. See the Brake Light Switch file within this Gallery regarding the switch replacement.

Black Deposits on Brake Light Switch Plunger2527 viewsThis jpg I got off another forum and is typical of what one will see when one opens up the removed brake light switch. The black powder is residue from arcing of one of the pair of contacts within.

Hopefully the newer switches with the FOMOCO logo moulded into the plastic are improved from the Land Rover logo marked early units, however I doubt it.

The Ford part number is SW-6572 and/or 7E5Z-13480-A as used on the 2006 to 2009 Ford Fusion's and Mercury Milan's; the Land Rover part number is XKB500110. Cost of switch could be about twenty five dollars. A previous LR part number for the switch was XKB500030, so hopefully the newer LR part number, XKB500110, reflects some improvement in reliability.

It is possible that the new switches are better as I installed a replacement 72,000 km, (45,000 miles) later, at 195,000 km (121,000 miles). When I took the removed switch apart to inspect, it was clean inside. There was no black dust - the switch looked like new, hence they must be improved now.

Breather line with factory cap cut off.1951 viewsIf you expand the jpg by clicking on it, in the bottom right corner if you look closely, one can see the black plastic factory vent tubing with the OEM cap cut off.

Note the tubing is cut at a 45 degree angle facing to the rear. Also shown in the top right is the cut off portion sitting on the coolant water hose and on the top left also sitting on the coolant hose, the new to be installed Gore manufactured replacement breather cap.

Breather Cap Installed1707 viewsThe black L shaped tube is is the Gore manufactured, (the Gore-Tex people), LR4 Breather Valve installed in an LR3. Naturally the installation looks similar to what one sees on an LR4 or RRS as the Gore breather valve is now OEM for new production.

The part number of this upgraded front differential breather valve is LR019450 and costs about thirty dollars.

CounterAct Power Supply mounted 223 viewsPicture is blurred, however power supply is 3M two sided tape to the flat black plastic of the second battery compartment just under the antilock brake pipes to the fender side of the brake fluid reservoir. The white wire to the left rear coupler pad runs thru the firewall hole near the steering column. The blue wire to the right front coupler runs across and above the engine following the other wiring looms that cross the vehicle.

CounterAct Power supply mounted under brake lines.178 viewsThis top view shows where I located the power supply. It is attached with 3M sticky to the black plastic surface that is located under the brake lines.

When the system is operating properly, the red LED pulses about twice per second.
Some users claim they can hear a very slight hum or whine coming from the unit. My unit seems silent.
