Do you need to replace the brake pads on your 2006 to 2014 Land Rover Freelander 2.2 TD4 diesel engine, but don't know where to start? This video tutorial shows you step-by-step how to do it!
The video was filmed in our workshop where we strip down and rebuild every car when producing our best-selling car repair manuals. Our 2006 to 2014 Land Rover Freelander manual covers 56 to 64 reg vehicles.
Roadwheel nuts: 133 Nm (98 Ibf ft)
Guide pin bolts: 30 Nm (22 Ibf ft)
Warning: Renew both sets of rear brake pads at the same time – never renew the pads on only one wheel, as uneven braking may result. Note that the dust created by wear of the pads may contain asbestos, which is a health hazard. Never blow it out with compressed air, and don’t inhale any of it. An approved filtering mask should be worn when working on the brakes. DO NOT use petrol or petroleum-based solvents to clean brake parts; use brake cleaner or methylated spirit only.
Caution: New pads will not give full braking efficiency until they have bedded-in. Be prepared for this, and avoid hard braking as far as possible for the first hundred miles or so after pad renewal.
