Fitting front bumper shields to Freelander 2

Whilst browsing through the Freelander 2 forum a few weeks ago, I came across this post detailing how to fit front bumper shields to the Freelander 2 front valance.

The main purpose of these parts is to push water out to the side when driving through puddles. This is rather than throwing it over the screen which can temporarily rob the driver of forward vision.

There was some confusion about the part numbers to use but at GLR Towers we went for the newer (and shorter) parts which were purchased from Brit-Car (LR032205 & LR032206)

Parts required from Britpart

They were fairly easy to fit and I just followed the post on the Freelander 2 forum. The only thing we did differently was to use stainless steel self tapping screws and washers for all 3 fixings on each shield. These were purchased from Stig Fasteners.

Before and after shots are below.

I’ve found then when hitting puddles at speed a lot less water seems to splash up over the windscreen now and they were well worth fitting.
