The Passport to Service included in your literature pack, contains important vehicle identification information, details of your entitlement under the terms of the Land Rover warranty, as well as useful consumer advice.

Most important of all, however, is the section on maintenance. This outlines the servicing requirements for your vehicle, as well as incorporating the service record slips, which the dealer should sign and stamp to certify that routine services have been carried out at the recommended intervals.


Safety warnings are included in this handbook. These indicate either a procedure which must be followed precisely, or information that should be considered with great care in order to avoid the possibility of personal injury or serious damage to the vehicle.



Warning labels attached to your vehicle bearing this symbol mean: DO NOT touch or adjust

components until you have read the relevant instructions in the handbook.

Warning labels showing this symbol indicate that the ignition system utilises very high

voltages. DO NOT touch any ignition components while the starter switch is turned on!


Your vehicle has a higher ground clearance and, therefore, a higher centre of gravity than ordinary passenger cars. This will result in different handling characteristics. Inexperienced drivers should take additional care, particularly in off-road driving situations and when performing abrupt manoeuvres on unstable surfaces.




If you need to communicate with a Land Rover dealer, you may be asked to quote the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

The VIN and other information concerning the vehicle, can be found on a plate, located in the driver’s footwell (this should also match the VIN recorded in the Passport to Service).

In addition, the Federal VIN plate is mounted to the vehicle body, in such a position that it is visible from the outside, through the bottom corner of the windscreen on the driver’s side.


While it may be difficult to deter the ’professional’ car thief, the majority of thefts are carried out by unskilled opportunists. Therefore, take vehicle security very seriously and ALWAYS adopt this simple ’five point’ drill whenever you leave your vehicle - even for just a few minutes:

Fully close all the windows and the sunroof (if fitted).

Remove your valuable belongings (or hide them out of sight).

Remove the starter key.

Engage the steering lock (by slightly turning the wheel until it locks).

Lock all the doors.

Thieves are attracted to ’vulnerable’ vehicles. Even if you have followed the ’five point’ drill, there is still much you can do to make your vehicle a less inviting target.


Park where your vehicle can easily be seen by householders and passers-by.

At night, park in well lit areas and avoid deserted or dimly lit side streets.

At home, if you have a garage, use it - and NEVER leave the keys in the vehicle.

Do not keep important vehicle documents (or spare keys) in the vehicle - these are a real bonus for the thief.


Rover DEFENDER 1997 Owner Manual



Remember the breakdown safety code

If a breakdown occurs while travelling:-

Wherever possible, consistent with road safety and traffic conditions, the vehicle should be moved off the main thoroughfare. If a breakdown occurs on a freeway, pull well over to the inside of the hard shoulder.

Switch on hazard lights.

If possible, position a warning triangle or a flashing amber light at an appropriate distance from the vehicle to warn other traffic of the breakdown (note the legal requirements of some areas in this respect).

Consider evacuating passengers through the right hand doors away from the road as a precaution in case your Defender is struck by another vehicle.



Controls & instruments

In this section of the handbook you will find descriptions of the controls and instruments on your vehicle.

For your own safety, it is most important to read this section fully and to gain a thorough understanding of all the controls before driving.

Door locks


You have been supplied with two sets of keys, comprising:

a black key for operating the starter switch.

a plain metal key for operating the door locks.

a grey key for operating the cubby box lock.

Key numbers

The starter key and glovebox key numbers are stamped on a tag attached to their respective key rings. The door lock key number is stamped on the key itself. All key numbers should be entered on the Security Information card.


Keep the spare keys and key tags in a safe place - NOT IN THE VEHICLE!

Ensure the key numbers are recorded on the Security Card supplied with your literature pack - DO NOT KEEP THE CARD IN THE VEHICLE!

Front doors

From outside the vehicle, turn the key towards the rear of the vehicle to lock and towards the front to unlock.

Door sill locking buttons

From inside the vehicle, each door can be individually locked, by depressing the appropriate sill locking button.


DO NOT depress the sill buttons as a means of locking the doors from outside the vehicle (this practice - known as ’slam locking’ - is not recommended, because keys can be locked inside accidentally).


From outside, use the key to lock and unlock. From inside and with the door closed, push the locking button up to lock and down to unlock (as illustration).





To avoid the risk of loss of control and personal injury, never adjust the driver’s seat or seatback while the vehicle is in motion.

DO NOT allow occupants to travel with the seat backs reclined steeply rearwards. Optimum benefit is achieved from the seat belt, with the seat back angle set to 15 degrees from the vertical (upright) position.

Forward/backward movement

Lift the bar at the front of the seat base to slide the seat forward or back. Ensure the seat is locked in position before driving.

Backrest movement

Lift the lever and lean backwards or forwards to achieve the desired angle, then lower the lever to lock.



Rear seats - (Station wagons) Station wagon models are fitted with inward facing rear seats, which can be folded away when not in use.

To erect the seats, release the strap securing the seatbase, pull out the seat stand and fold down the seatbase, ensuring that the seat stand locates where the vehicle floor meets the wheel arch (see illustration).

NOTE: Soft top vehicles can be fitted with forward facing rear seats, provided that a full Safari roll cage has been installed.


DO NOT adjust the seats or seat stands while the vehicle is in motion.

When the seat is erected, the seat stand should be visually checked and physically tested, to ensure that the seatbase is secure before driving.

DO NOT allow the rear seats to be used unless the seat stand is in the correct position.

Ensure that rear seat passengers wear seat belts at all times.

DO NOT carry passengers in the rear of the vehicle unless rear seats are fitted.


Seat belts

SEAT BELT SAFETY Seat belts are life saving equipment.

In a collision, unrestrained passengers can be thrown around inside the vehicle, or possibly thrown out of the vehicle, resulting in injury to themselves and to other occupants. DO NOT take chances with safety!

DO make sure ALL passengers are securely strapped in at all times - even for the shortest journeys.

ALWAYS adjust seat belts to eliminate any slack in the webbing, and to ensure that the diagonal belt passes across the shoulder without slipping off or pressing on the neck.

ALWAYS fit the lap strap as low on the hips as possible (never across the abdomen).

DO NOT slacken the webbing by pulling the belt away from the body - to be fully effective, the seat belt must be in full contact with the body at all times.

DO have seat belts checked if the vehicle has been involved in an accident.

DO NOT allow front seat occupants to travel with the seat backs reclined steeply rearwards. Optimum benefit is obtained from the seat belt, with the seat back angle set to 15 degrees from the upright (vertical) position.

DO use the seat belts to secure large items of luggage that are to be carried on the seats - in the event of an accident, insecure items become flying missiles capable of causing serious injury.

DO NOT fit more than one person into a belt, or fit a seat belt that is twisted or obstructed in any way that could impede its smooth operation.

DO NOT allow foreign matter (particularly sugary food and drink particles) to enter the seat belt locks - such substances can render the locks inoperative.


Pregnant women should ask a doctor for advice about the safest way to wear seat belts.

Ensure that all seat belts are worn correctly - an improperly worn seat belt increases the risk of death or serious injury in the event of an accident.


Seat belts


At all times, occupants should wear a seat belt for their protection in the event of a collision or sudden stop. In some circumstances, perhaps due to the vehicle being on a slope, the automatic locking mechanism may engage, preventing the initial extension of the belt. This is not a fault - ease the belt free and use it.

Fastening the inertia reel belts

Draw the belt over the shoulder and across the chest, and insert the metal tongue plate into the lock nearest the wearer - a ’click’ indicates that the belt is securely locked.

Seat belts are designed to bear upon the bony structure of the body (pelvis, chest and shoulders) and can only be worn safely with the webbing crossing the shoulder MIDWAY BETWEEN THE NECK AND THE EDGE OF THE SHOULDER and with the seats in a normal UPRIGHT position - DO NOT allow the front passenger to travel with the seat steeply reclined.

Lap belts

To adjust, pull the slider along the belt and feed the webbing through the buckle until the belt is comfortably tight. When not in use, the lap belts should be stowed behind the seat back.


Seat belts

Infant and child restraints

All infant and child restraint systems are designed to be secured in forward facing vehicle seats by means of a lap belt or the lap portion of a lap/shoulder belt.

When installing and using any infant or child restraint system, always follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer concerning installation and use. Failure to properly secure the child restraint system in the vehicle can endanger the child in a collision or sudden stop and cause injury to other passengers.

The front passenger seat belt is fitted with a retracting lock mechanism, providing extra security for a child restraint in the event of an accident. To activate the passenger seat belt lock mechanism, pull the seat belt out to its full extent and then allow it to retract until it is the correct length to secure the child seat. The seat belt will now be locked in that position until released by undoing the seat belt in the normal way.

Never leave a child unattended in your vehicle.


Infants and children too small for seat belts should be restrained in a child safety seat or restraint system, appropriate to their age and/or size, and which is approved for use in your vehicle. Always ensure that the manufacturer’s fitting instructions are followed exactly.

Do not fit child safety seats or restraint systems to the inward facing rear seats.


Seat belts

Caring for seat belts

Regularly inspect the belt webbing for signs of wear, paying particular attention to the fixing points and adjusters. Always replace a seat belt that has withstood the strain of an impact or shows signs of fraying.

DO NOT bleach or dye the webbing. Clean the webbing using warm water and non-detergent soap only - allow to dry naturally and DO NOT retract the belt until completely dry.

Testing inertia reel belts

From time to time carry out the following tests:

1.With the seat belt fastened, give the webbing near the buckle a quick upward pull. The buckle must remain securely locked.

2.With the seat belt unfastened, unreel the webbing to the limit of its travel. Check that unreeling is free from snatches and snags.

3.With the webbing half unreeled, hold the tongue plate and give it a quick forward pull. The safety mechanism must lock automatically and prevent any further unreeling.



1. Speedometer

Indicates road speed in miles and/or kilometres per hour.

2. Odometer and trip odometer

Indicates the total distance or the individual journey distance travelled by the vehicle - press and release the reset button (3) to change between the two.

3.Odometer and trip odometer mode/reset button

Press and release the mode button to change the digital display between either the total distance the vehicle has travelled, or the individual journey distance. Press and hold the button to reset the trip odometer to zero.

4. Fuel gauge

The pointer indicates the fuel level when the starter switch is turned to position ’II’.

5. Temperature gauge

Once the engine coolant has reached its normal operating temperature, the pointer should remain between the ’C’ (cold) and ’H’ (hot) segments. If the pointer enters the ’H’ segment, stop the vehicle as soon as safety permits and seek qualified assistance before continuing.

6. Tachometer

Indicates engine speed in revolutions per minute (rev/min). In normal driving conditions, the engine speed should NEVER exceed 5500 rev/min.

7. Warning light pack

For a full explanation of the function of the warning lights, see ’Warning lights’.


Warning lights


The specification of the warning lights will vary according to model and market requirements.

The warning lights are colour coded as follows:

RED lights are warnings.


DO NOT drive if a RED warning light remains on once the engine is running or illuminates whilst driving.

GREEN & BLUE lights indicate that a unit is operating.

AMBER lights show that a unit is operating and should be switched off (or rectified) as soon as conditions allow.

Low engine oil pressure - RED Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to

position ’II’ and extinguishes when the engine is running. If it remains on, or illuminates whilst driving, STOP THE VEHICLE as soon as safety permits and seek qualified assistance before continuing. Always check oil levels when this light illuminates.

NOTE: At very low ambient temperatures, the light may take several seconds to extinguish.

Battery charging - RED Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to

position ’II’ and extinguishes when the engine is running. If it remains on, or illuminates whilst driving, a fault is indicated. Seek qualified assistance urgently.

Brake system check - RED Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to

position ’II’ and extinguishes when the engine is running and the parking brake is released. If it remains on, or illuminates whilst driving, a fault with the braking system is indicated. STOP THE VEHICLE as soon as safety permits and seek qualified assistance before continuing.


DO NOT drive the vehicle while the brake warning light is illuminated.

Direction indicators - GREEN Flashes in conjunction with the direction indicators. If the light

does not illuminate, this may indicate a bulb failure in the warning light pack or in one of the direction indicator lights.

Headlight high beam - BLUE Illuminates whenever the high beam headlights are on.


Warning lights

Differential lock - AMBER Illuminates whenever the differential lock is engaged.

If the light remains on after the differential lock is disengaged, transmission ’wind up’ may be present. Reversing for a short distance and then going forward will usually ’unwind’ the transmission. If the light remains on, contact your dealer as soon as possible.

Heated rear screen - AMBER (if fitted)

Illuminates when the rear screen heater is operating.

Seat belt warning - RED

If the driver’s seat belt is not fastened, the light illuminates

when the starter switch is turned to position ’II’. The light extinguishes as soon as the driver’s seat belt is fastened. ALWAYS fasten your seat belt BEFORE driving!

Emission maintenance reminder


Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to position ’II’. If the light illuminates at any other time, the vehicle should be taken to your Land Rover dealer for a special emission related service to be carried out.

Trailer direction indicators - GREEN

Flashes in conjunction with the vehicle direction indicator lights to show that all trailer indicator lights are functioning correctly. In the event of a bulb failure on the trailer, the warning light flashes once and then remains off.

NOTE: When a trailer is not fitted, the warning light will only flash once.

Side lights - GREEN Illuminates whenever the side lights are on.

Check engine - AMBER Illuminates momentarily as a bulb check when the starter

switch is turned to position ’II’ and should extinguish when the engine is running. Illumination at any other time, indicates an engine fault - if the light flashes, reduce speed and seek qualified assistance urgently.



Driver’s seat belt reminder

A chime will sound for up to 8 seconds, if the starter switch is turned to position ’II’, when the driver’s seat belt is unfastened.

Starter key warning

A chime will sound if the key is left in the starter switch, with the switch in position ’I’ or ’0’, when the driver’s door is opened.

Hazard warning lights (1)

Press the switch once to operate; all the direction indicator lights (including those fitted to a trailer) and warning lights will flash in conjunction with each other.

Use ONLY in an emergency to warn other road users when your stationary vehicle is causing an obstruction, or is in a hazardous situation. Switch off by pressing the switch again before moving away.




Front windows: (Station wagons)

Raise or lower the window by rotating the handle mounted on the door.

Sliding rear windows: (Station wagons) To open, press the catch tongues together, slide the window to the desired position and release the catch, ensuring that it locates

securely in the sockets, locking the window in position.

Sliding front windows: (Soft top)

Push the lever down to unlock the window and slide the window open as required. Push the lever up to lock the window.



SUNROOF (if fitted)

The sunroof can be opened or, if required, can be removed completely.

To OPEN the roof:

Turn the hand wheel counter-clockwise to give the desired opening.

NOTE: A partially open sunroof may vibrate due to aerodynamic pressures. Adjust the sunroof aperture to reduce vibration.

To CLOSE the roof:

Turn the hand wheel clockwise until resistance is felt.

To REMOVE the roof:

Open the sunroof fully and push the catch (1) rearwards to disengage the hand wheel mechanism.

Remove the sunroof by tilting upwards and lifting rearwards to disengage the locating lugs.


DO NOT store the sunroof loose in the vehicle.

DO NOT allow passengers to extend any part of their bodies through the sunroof while the vehicle is moving.

DO NOT remove the sunroof whilst the vehicle is moving.

Refit the sunroof by following the same procedure in reverse.


Heating & ventilation

Fresh air vents

To open the two vents in the windscreen frame, push the lever to the right and then downwards to the desired position and release.

The temperature of air supplied to the fresh air vents is not controlled by the heater.


Heating & ventilation


1.Fan speed control

With the control at ’0’, the fan is switched off and no air will enter the vehicle through the heater vents. With the control moved downwards to the first position, the volume of air entering the passenger compartment is solely dependent upon the ram effect of the vehicle moving through the air. The subsequent positions operate the fan at speeds ’1’ and ’2’ respectively.

3. Air distribution control

Lever fully up - windscreen vents only.

Lever midway - foot level and windscreen vents.

Lever fully down - foot level vents (also provides some air to the windscreen).

2.Temperature control

Move the lever downwards (towards the RED segment) to increase air temperature, or upwards (towards the BLUE segment) to reduce air temperature.


Heating & ventilation


Ensure the front grille and the air intake grille on the front wing are kept clear of obstructions (especially snow and ice).

The following examples of basic heater settings are intended as a general guide; the air distribution, temperature and blower controls can then be further adjusted to suit your comfort requirements.

Always remember that full heating is not available until the engine has reached its normal operating temperature.

Maximum heating

Temperature control - fully down.

Distribution control - midway.

Fan speed control - fully down.

Fresh air vents - fully closed.

Demisting and defrosting

Temperature control - fully down.

Distribution control - fully up.

Fan speed control - fully down.

Fresh air vents - fully open for demisting (closed for defrosting).

Opening a window may improve ventilation.

Maximum ventilation

Temperature control - fully up.

Distribution control - fully down.

Fan speed control - fully down.

Fresh air vents - fully open.


Air conditioning

USING THE AIR CONDITIONING (if fitted) If your vehicle has been fitted with an air conditioning system, you may find the following guidelines useful.

Air conditioning provides additional cooling to the vehicle interior and also reduces the moisture content of the air.

The air conditioning system will only operate with the fan switched on and the engine running. It is also important to keep the windows closed during operation.

Operation of the air conditioning system, places an additional load on the engine which, in very hot conditions and if the engine is required to work unusually hard, could result in high engine temperatures. If the temperature gauge pointer reaches the RED zone, turn the air conditioning off until engine temperature returns to normal.

Points to remember:

If the temperature inside the vehicle is higher than that outside when you start the engine, it will take time for the air conditioning to become fully effective. It is best to ventilate the vehicle by opening the windows and operating the fan for a brief period before switching on the air conditioning. Remember to close the windows whenever the air conditioning is operating.

Operating the air conditioning takes power from the engine and consequently increases fuel consumption.

All air conditioning systems need to be operated for a short while every week (even in winter) to maintain them in peak condition.

The air conditioning system will also dehumidify air. The surplus water produced by this process is expelled from the system via drain tubes beneath the vehicle. This may result in a small pool of water forming on the road when the vehicle is stationary and is not a cause for concern.


Interior equipment


Station wagons:

With the switch midway between the ’ON’ and ’OFF’ positions, the light will illuminate whenever a door is opened.


With the starter switch turned to position ’II’, press the lighter in to heat up. When it has reached the correct temperature it will partially eject and can then be withdrawn for use.

ONLY hold the cigar lighter by the handle.

DO NOT use the ashtray for disposing of waste paper or other combustible materials.

DO NOT plug accessories into the cigar lighter socket unless they are approved for use in your vehicle by Land Rover.


To adjust the time, press and turn the button in the bottom right hand corner of the clock face.

NOTE: The clock will need to be reset, if the battery is disconnected.


Interior equipment


Lift the lid of the ashtray to open. To remove, carefully prise the ashtray out of the fascia panel.


Turn the key clockwise to unlock the cubby box, then squeeze the catch to open. Turn the key counter-clockwise to lock the box.

The flap on the underside of the cubby box lid, can be folded out and, when the lid is shut, acts as a security cover for the in-car entertainment unit. It is recommended that the security cover is used (and the cubby box locked) whenever the vehicle is left unattended.

NOTE: The two recesses to the side of the gear selector are for cups or drink cans.
