Fitting LR007440 Cup Holder/Oddments Tray to Freelander 2

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. I’ve seen the ash tray/oddments holder that fits in the rear of the… Read more »

Fitting a Rear Power Socket in a Freelander 2

I’ve wanted a power socket in the boot since I’ve owned my current Freelander. I’ve had one in all the previous Freelanders I’ve owned. I generally use them for powering my coolbox but have used it for powering a small compressor for pumping up tyres.

The wood being the lesser of 2 evils… Fitting them and it was a reasonably easy task. The glove box… Read more »

Webasto fitted but not yet operational

Yesterday, I took the GLR Freelander to Auto Electrical Services in Tamworth to have the Fuel Burning Heater Kit fitted. Unfortunately I didn’t communicate the fact that, when I asked for the kit to be plumbed in,  I also wanted the fuel line connecting as well. My mistake! AES have done what looks to be an excellent job. I’m really… Read more »
