SERVICES - Supply of Parts
Land Rover Freelander 1 vehicles are now up to 20 years old. This means that some are hard to find, some are impossible to find and some, when found and cleaned, are rotted beyond repair.
ALW Motor Vehicle Engineering can help you with your repair and / or restoration work in several ways:
Item already located, removed and available for sale.
To keep things simple, ensure your peace of mind and provide paypal and other services all items in stock are listed on Ebay.
Easy - Just Bid, Best Offer or Buy it Now !
Request part, agree price, await location of part and delivery.
No one likes surprises ! Requesting parts and then waiting for a final invoice can be stressful and not encourage good working relationships !
ALW Motor Vehicle Engineering will, on your request, locate specific items for you. An 'up front' price is agreed. A delivery estimate will be provided, but, as explained above, parts location can take time. You will receive regular progress updates on hard to locate parts.
SERVICES - Code Reading and Key Fob Programming
Engine Management Fault Code reading
Depending on the year, (pre-2001 petrol and pre-2004 diesel) Freelanders are not always compatible with the readily available OBD II (On Board Diagnostics) computer interfaces.
I have Freelander specific code readers which will help you, or your designated repairer with a 'clue' as to the problem. The code will not 'tell you the fault' but, with knowledge of the vehicle it can lead you to vastly narrow down the fault and save time and money.
'Live data' recorded whilst the engine is running is also available and can be a useful diagnostic tool.
Key Fob programming
Due to the age of these vehicles owners can loose the key fob or it can get broken. By bringing another 'spare' key fob from a different or scrap vehicle this can be re-programmed to work with your car.
Spare key fobs are also available from me direct but I need the type number.
Currently I am unable to reprogram keys or chips in keys (but I'm working on it !)
SERVICES - Support and Advice
Hire of Engine Crane
A 2 Tonne engine crane is available to hire to save the cost of purchase.
Collection and a deposit are required.
Very happy to pass on what knowledge I have. I have now probably had an entire Freelander 1 to pieces and back together again (that is the important bit) several times over. I have probably encountered most of the problems you are likely to find when carrying out repair work. Also, I have updated some of the components to bring the vehicle into the 21st Century.
Services available include; pre-purchase advice, guidance on modifications, explaining tests that an owner can do, before or after purchase to save problems later on and diagnostic support.
