FREELANDER stuff ???



Anyone ever tired these things on a Freelander ? : http://tinyurl.com/bgpd5


I'm guessing it's probably a bit of a hype ...and won't do much at
all....though it's not much of a lay out....but wouln't won't to harm the
vehicle by not understanding what it really does... so if anyone has any
experience or advice..please..


Also, have a problem with my tail gate window stiking as it goes
down....dealer said it needs a NEW cable....and that will cost AU$700 plus
$200 to fit....wow.....$900!!!!!!!!!

Surely there's a way to adjust this...take up the slack with some cable link
or something ???


Anyone done this before...?...
I'm going to buy the workshop manual...so I can figure out how to get the
interior trim off the tailgate....then investigate myself...I know big
dealers....don't usually service items like this....anything that is
slightly worn....they just replace...easier...and quicker for them....but
bloody expensive for the owners.. :(


While I'm at it...if anyone can suggest a good online place for spare parts
for my Freelander ( 98 1.8 petrol )..i'm in Australia....though sometimes
it's still cheaper to import....


cheers,
Brian C

Forget it, all they do is fool the ECU into supplying more fuel, there is a
power increase but the mpg is hit and it caused problems with my 2004 TD4
resulting in the exhaust sensor failing etc!!
