For Range Rover L322 Repairs then you are in the right place. Here at K Motors we are Independent Specialists in Land Rover and Range Rover repairs since 1957.

There is no doubt that the Range Rover is iconic in all forms, fans of the marque, and sales, have gone from strength to strength since its inception in 1971. When the design team under the ownership of BMW were given a blank sheet of paper for the third generation model, codenamed L322, the results were staggering. With big dimensions and traditional detail it had the style that its predecessor seriously lacked. Now imperious with genuine presence, gone were the cheap plastic finishes and crude parts-bin feel, the all new Range Rover feels more like an off road Rolls Royce.

With a choice of either the Td6 diesel or 4.4V8 petrol, both supplied by BMW reliability has proved good. In 2007 the TDV8 diesel was introduced which produced an impressive 272bhp knocking over 4 seconds off the 0-60 time and returning an average 25mpg. As you would expect with a flagship Range Rover it has every extra imaginable and jam packed with technology. On the downside this means the old days of spending time in your garage with your old Classic and a Haynes manual are long gone, the only way to find faults is using specialist diagnostic equipment.

We have been performing Range Rover L322 repairs since their introduction in 2002 and have a vast knowledge of the vehicle. Here we have a list of the more common L322 faults, symptoms and costs to repair.

Range Rover L322 Repairs – Intercooler Hoses
Loss of power can be caused by a split in one of the intercooler hoses. This means that the air boost pressure is lost so the air and fuel mixture is incorrect leading to poor performance and generally black smoke from the exhaust. Most instances will put the car into restricted performance mode but not always. This is most common on the 3.6 TDV8, to check, inspect the two hoses that run from the top of the intercooler into the engine a split will show if you squeeze them. We would always advise to change both hoses even if only one is faulty as the other will fail shortly after. Replace both top intercooler hoses (Genuine LR) £125
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Alternator
Electrical faults ranging from engine not starting as easy as usual or not at all to dash lights flickering etc can be caused by a faulty alternator particularly on the 3.6 TDV8 models. Unfortunately they are not easy to get at and it takes around 4 hours to replace. Replace Alternator (OEM Part) £445
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Air Suspension Faults
Most air suspension faults have the same symptoms, a SUSPENSION INACTIVE message will show on the dash. The vehicle will be slow to raise (or not raise at all) and only go to standard ride height will not go in off road or access mode. We always advise a diagnostic check before changing any parts. Replace Air suspension compressor pump (OEM) to 06 £360
Replace Air suspension compressor pump (Gen LR) 06 on £682
Replace Air suspension receiver tank (Genuine LR) £272
Replace Air suspension height sensor (each OEM) £98
Replace Air suspension valve (Genuine LR) £249
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Front Suspension Strut
If the vehicle suspension will not raise over one wheel when it does for all the others then the most common cause is a split or leak in the suspension air bag. The air bags are connected to the shock absorbers and come as a complete unit. Replace complete front suspension strut (OEM) to 07 £404
Replace complete front suspension strut (OEM) 07 on £477
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Front Suspension Arm Lower
A rattle heard when travelling over rough terrain often felt through the steering wheel. A common fault but diffcult to diagnose as you can test all bushes with a bar or jack vehicle up and look for play but not see any. It needs a ramp and someone to rock the steering wheel quickly side to side whilst another person looks for excessive movement in the bush and ball joint. Replace front suspension lower arm (OEM) £95
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Front Suspension Arm Upper
Not as common a fault as the lower arm bushes failing but if there has been play/noise for a while then the strain put on the upper arm bushes from the lower arms being worn can mean these also need replacing. Replace front suspension upper arm (OEM) £122
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Front Suspension Tie Bars
When driving over rough ground or potholes if you hear a light rattle then this is often caused by worn bushes in the suspension drop links (also called tie/link or stabiliser bars) Replace suspension drop link (OEM) price per side £67
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Rear Suspension Hub Bushes
A common problem on the Range Rover L322 is perished rear hub bushes. These are the bushes that connect the hubs to the wishbones and the usual symptoms are clonking noises from the rear suspension when driving over bumps, if done for a period of time you will see uneven wear on the rear tyres. The bushes are quite difficult to replace, requiring LR special tools and a fair amount of elbow grease. Replace rear suspension hub bushes (OEM Parts) £300
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Ignition Switch
Another common problem on the Range Rover L322 is failing ignition switches. If you are finding difficulty turning the key in the ignition then this is generally the reason. On earlier models where it is situated next to the gearstick the job is not too bad but if it is found to the left of the steering wheel then the upper dash has to come out which takes around 8 hours. Replace ignition switch gearstick console (Genuine LR) £275
Replace ignition switch upper dash (Genuine LR) £545
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Fuel Gauge
If you have noticed that your fuel gauge is reading incorrectly then this can be caused by a faulty fuel pump or a faulty ECU. However, often it can just be an issue with the connectors that attach the wiring loom to the fuel sender unit which can be replaced. It is a common fault with a number of Land Rover models. Be careful if you are thinking that you can live with a wrong reading on the dash because if the ECU thinks the tank is empty it will stop the engine to prevent any damage and not start again and you can guarantee it will do it at the most inconvenient time and location. Replace fuel pump sender connections (Genuine LR) £220
Replace fuel pump and sender unit (OEM) £570
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Front Brake Pad Replacement
If low pads are spotted early before any damage is caused to the disc then just the pads can be changed. Generally once the warning light has come on it is too late and discs will need to be changed also. Front brake pads replacement (both sides OEM) £95
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Front Brake Discs and Pads
If brake pads have worn low and scored the discs then it is advisable to change both for optimum performance. The average life of brake discs is around 32,000 miles after this they are considered too thin and will have a lip around the edge where just fitting new pads will take too long to bed in and most likely cause a squealing sound each time you apply the brakes. Front brake discs and pads replacement (Both sides) £215
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Rear Brake Pad Replacement
If low pads are spotted early before any damage is caused to the disc then just the pads can be changed. Generally once the warning light has come on it is too late and discs will need to be changed also. Rear brake pads replacement (both sides OEM) £85
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Rear Brake Discs and Pads
If brake pads have worn low and scored the discs then it is advisable to change both for optimum performance. The average life of brake discs is around 32,000 miles after this they are considered too thin and will have a lip around the edge where just fitting new pads will take too long to bed in and most likely cause a squealing sound each time you apply the brakes. Rear brake discs and pads replacement (Both sides) £195
Range Rover L322 Repairs – Handbrake Shoe Replacement
Screeching or rear wheels locked can be caused by the handbrake shoes collapsing, either the contact material has come away from the metal shoe and jammed or one of the mechanisms has broken causing them to lock up. Sometimes this can cause damage to the discs which means they will also need to be replaced. Handbrake shoe replacement (both sides OEM) £175
Handbrake shoes, discs and pads replacement (both sides OEM) £345
