bloody nails – LR3 suspension failure

Life

Jul 18

Driving home and suddenly the dashboard lights up with warning lights telling me about a LR3 suspension failure!

"Oh No" I think "Not that bloody air suspension stuff I had replaced last year"

The lights continue to blink with various warnings to ‘slow to 30 mph’ and ‘grip the steering wheel as tight as possible in case I explode into flame and roll down the road like they do in the movies’ (not really… I made that one up… the one about 30 mph).

But, anyway, when I had a chance to pull over and investigate I discovered things weren’t quite as bad as expected and the very clever engine computer had detected that it had suddenly lost air pressure in the rear drivers side tire.

Blame this on one big fat nail:

So, things aren’t as bad as they could be and its time to spend an hour with Litten Junior and teach him how to change a tire on a Landrover :0
