Replacing battery in a Freelander 2 key fob

Fob with old and new battery

Some time ago I bought an ashtray (LR005248) to fit in the GLR Freelander 2. This was just to hold odds and ends. However it’s been taking up one of the cup holder locations which causes a problem for GLR staff when visiting their favourite drive through.

LR003852 Cargo Net for Freelander 2


I’ve been after this cargo net for ages. It’s a very useful net that serves a couple of functions: – I wasn’t willing to pay the £60+ that is generally demanded for LR003852. I think the price these things retail at is a bit unreasonable and £30 is closer to the mark. Anyhow I spotted on on eBay and managed to bag… Read more »
