Land Rover Discovery Owners & Service Manuals

Land Rover Discovery: How To Use This Manual

This manual covers all aspects necessary in order to service the vehicle effectively.

The manual is structured into five main sections, General Information, Chassis, Powertrain, Electrical and Body and Paint with each section dealing with a specific part of a vehicle system.

Each of the five main sections contain sub-sections dealing with items which form a part of that specific system.

Pages at the start of the manual list all sections available. Each section has a contents list detailing, where applicable, Specifications, Description and Operation, Diagnosis and Testing, General Procedures and Repair Procedures.

Where components need to be removed or disassembled in sequence, each operation in the sequence will be identified numerically and also graphically in an accompanying illustration.

All left-hand and right-hand references to the vehicle are taken from a position sitting in the driver seat looking forward.

All left-hand and right-hand references to the engine are taken from a position at the flywheel looking towards the front camshaft pulley.

Inspection and Verification

Visual Inspection Charts, Symptom Charts and other information charts (such as diagnostic routines) or supplement test procedures with technical specifications will navigate the user to a specific test procedure.

Symptom Chart

The symptom chart indicates symptoms, sources and actions to address a condition.

Pinpoint Tests

For electrical systems, pinpoint test steps are used to identify the source of a concern in a logical, step-by-step manner. Pinpoint tests have two columns: CONDITIONS and DETAILS/RESULTS/ACTIONS.

The CONDITIONS column is used exclusively for graphics and icons (with or without captions) and the DETAILS/RESULTS/ACTIONS column provides direction to another test step or specific corrective actions.

The boxed numbers indicate the order in which the described action is to be carried out.

Component Tests

A component test is used when a component is tested in multiple pinpoint tests, or if a procedure is too complicated to be formatted within a single page of the pinpoint test.


Test graphics show the measurement or test to be carried out in a test step.

A representative tester graphic is used for voltmeters and ohmmeters.

If multiple measurements are made in a single graphic, the test leads are drawn with a solid line until the test lead splits to indicate the multiple measurements, at which point dashed lines are used.

Breakout box type testers are represented by a double circle test pin. Test pins are labelled with the pin number.


Dimensions quoted are to design engineering specifications with service limits quoted, where applicable.


The five main sections, together with the areas which they cover are given below:

  • Section 1 - General Information.
  • Section 2 - Chassis.
  • Section 3 - Powertrain.
  • Section 4 - Electrical.
  • Section 5 - Body and Paint.

Sub-section numbers appear after the initial section number, for example, Section 412-01 covers Climate Control, which is part of the electrical section.

In the number given above, the first digit of the number '4' indicates the section i.e. Electrical.

The second and third digits '12' of the number indicate the vehicle system i.e. Climate Control.

The last two digits of the number '01' indicate the part of the system covered by the sub-section i.e. Air Conditioning (A/C) Compressor.
