Land Rover Tech Tip: 2013-2017 Range Rover With Dynamic Response Suspension

A squeak, creak and/or a knocking noise from the front of the vehicle may be evident when driving over rough terrain. This may be caused by debris contaminating the contact face between the Dynamic Response front stabilizer bar and bushes.


Condition

A squeak, creak and/or a knocking noise from the front of the vehicle may be evident when driving over rough terrain.

Cause
This may be caused by debris contaminating the contact face between the Dynamic Response front stabilizer bar and bushes.
This Technical Bulletin does not apply to Autobiography Black or SVO models.

Correction
Should a customer express this concern, follow the Workshop Procedure below.

Parts
LR110782 Front stabilizer bar bushes x 2
LR050753 Screw x 4
LR045743 Bolt x 2

Repair Procedures
The Dynamic Response front stabilizer bar must be cleaned back to the paint in the area where contact is made with the bushings.
The paint on the Dynamic Response front stabilizer bar may be worn away; this is an acceptable condition. Do not install a new stabilizer bar for this issue.

Install the new Dynamic Response front stabilizer bar bushings. Remove dirt and/or debris from the section of the Dynamic Response front stabilizer bar that is clamped in the bush. Paint, if present, does not need to be removed. If required, use a locally sourced suitable strip of 320 grade abrasive paper/cloth to remove any built-up deposits. Use a locally sourced suitable brake cleaner to remove any dirt or grease residue.

Ride Height Sensors

If one of these sensors is replaced, it must be calibrated after it is installed.

Ride-height sensors not only measure the position of the suspension, but also the rate of movement. They are supplied with a voltage of around 5 volts. The signal voltage is changed as a magnet moves past a coil. Most sensors have three wires — ground, power and signal.

Internally, it is difficult to damage one of these sensors. Externally, the linkage that connects the sensor to the suspension arm can also be damaged. The connector can be damaged and cause a short or open and a code will be set. If one of these sensors is replaced, it must be calibrated after it is installed.
