Introduction

Congratulations on acquiring your new Land Rover Discovery. Please take the time to become acquainted with your vehicle by reading this handbook, which, together with the other books in your literature pack, provides information you will need to derive maximum pleasure from owning and driving your new vehicle.

For your convenience, the handbook is divided into sections, each dealing with a particular aspect of driving or caring for the vehicle. These are listed on the contents page and you will find it worthwhile to take a little time to read each one, and get to know your Discovery as soon as you possibly can. The more you understand before you drive, the greater the satisfaction once you are seated behind the steering wheel.

*An asterisk appearing within the text, identifies features or items of equipment that are either optional, or are only fitted to some vehicles in the model range.

IMPORTANT

The specification of each vehicle will vary according to territorial requirements and also from model to model within the vehicle range. Some of the information published in this handbook, therefore, may not apply to your particular vehicle.

Land Rover operates a policy of constant product improvement and therefore reserves the right to change specifications without notice at any time. Whilst every effort is made to ensure complete accuracy of the information in this handbook, no liabilities for inaccuracies or the consequences thereof can be accepted by the manufacturer or the retailer, except in respect of personal injury caused by the negligence of the manufacturer or the retailer.

NOTE: Please refer to your ‘In-Car Entertainment’ and ‘Navigation’ handbooks for further details.

NOTE: Some music CD manufacturers are using data encryption to 'copy-protect' their recordings and prevent the production of pirate copies. These CDs differ from the internationally agreed CD audio standard, RedBook, a standard that serves as the operating basis for all CD players and changers.

Copy-protected CDs may not play in your Audio unit or CD changer or may be played subject to various limitations, e.g., sound quality may be impaired.

If you do experience a problem, try the CD in other players before contacting the CD vendor.

Gas Station Information

FUEL FILLER

The fuel filler is located in the rear right-hand quarter panel. With the starter switch turned to position ‘0’ or ‘I’, press the binnacle switch to release the filler flap.

The filler cap is designed to allow the fuel tank to vent during the first half turn. Carefully loosen the cap one half turn until resistance is felt, and allow fuel tank pressure to be released. Once the pressure is released (hissing has stopped), it is safe to fully remove the filler cap.

When replacing, tighten the cap clockwise until you hear the fuel cap ratchet click at least three times.

50% mix of fresh water and anti-freeze, see

‘LUBRICANTS AND FLUIDS’, page 239.

NOTE: For more detailed information, see ‘LUBRICANTS AND FLUIDS’, page 231.

TIRE PRESSURES

Air pressure naturally increases in warm tires (after the vehicle has been driven for a while). If you have to check warm tires, you should expect the pressures to have increased between 4 to 6 lbf/in2 (30 and 40 kPa). In this circumstance, NEVER let air out of the tires in order to match the recommended pressures.

Before You Drive

REPORTING SAFETY DEFECTS

If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause a crash, or could cause injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying Land Rover North America Inc.

If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation and if it finds that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign.

However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your retailer or Land Rover North America.

Auto safety hotline

To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety HOTLINE toll free at 1-800-424-9393 (or 202-366-0123 in the Washington, D.C. area) or write to: NHTSA, U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington, DC 20590. You can also obtain other information about motor vehicle safety from the HOTLINE.

CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING

WARNING

Engine exhaust, some of its constituents and certain vehicle components contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. In addition, certain fluids contained in vehicles and certain products of component wear contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

WARNING

Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds. Wash hands after handling.

19

Before You Drive

BEFORE YOU DRIVE

Your Discovery has a higher ground clearance and hence, a higher center of gravity than ordinary passenger cars, to enable the vehicle to perform in a wide variety of off-road applications. An advantage of the higher ground clearance is a better view of the road allowing you to anticipate problems.

The vehicle is not designed for cornering at the same speed as conventional passenger cars any more than a low-slung sports car is designed to perform satisfactorily under off-road conditions. If at all possible, avoid sharp turns or abrupt maneuvers. As with other vehicles of this type, failure to operate the Discovery correctly may result in loss of control or vehicle rollover. For important safety information, be sure to read the ‘On-Road’ and ‘Off-Road’ driving guidelines given later in this handbook.

WARNINGS IN THIS HANDBOOK

WARNING

Safety warnings are included in this handbook. These indicate a procedure which must be followed precisely in order to avoid the possibility of personal injury or serious damage to the vehicle.

SYMBOLS USED

The following symbols used within the handbook call your attention to specific types of information.

This recycling symbol identifies items that must be disposed of safely in order to

prevent unnecessary damage to the environment.

This symbol identifies features that can be adjusted or disabled/enabled by a Land

Rover retailer

20

Before You Drive

PASSPORT TO SERVICE

The Passport to Service book 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 and also includes the service record slips, which the retailer should sign and stamp to certify the routine services have been carried out.

WARNING LABELS ATTACHED 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 utilizes very high voltages. DO NOT touch any ignition components while the starter switch is turned on!

NOTE: Always read warning information labels.

Before You Drive

ANTI-THEFT PRECAUTIONS

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 ‘four point’ drill whenever you leave your vehicle - even for just a few minutes:

1.Fully close all the windows (and the sunroof).

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

3.Remove the starter key.

4.Superlock the vehicle using the remote handset.

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

BE SAFE - NOT SORRY!

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

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

NEVER leave the keys in the vehicle.

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

IN AN EMERGENCY

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

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, preferably onto the shoulder as far as possible. If a breakdown occurs on a motorway, 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).

Consider evacuating passengers through the doors facing away from traffic, to a safe area away from the vehicle as a precaution in case your Discovery is accidentally struck by another vehicle.

25

Before You Drive

BREAKING-IN

Proper breaking-in will have a direct bearing on the reliability and smooth running of your vehicle throughout its life.

In particular, the engine, gearbox, brakes and tires need time to ‘bed-in’ and adjust to the demands of everyday motoring. During the first 500 miles (800 km), it is essential to drive with consideration for the running-in process and heed the following advice:

LIMIT maximum road speed to 70 mph (110 km/h) or 3,000 rev/min. Initially, drive the vehicle on a light throttle and only increase engine speeds gradually once the breaking-in distance has been completed.

DO NOT operate at full throttle or allow the engine to labor in any gear.

AVOID fast acceleration and heavy braking except in emergencies.

ALARM SYSTEM

Handset buttons

H4402

All Discovery vehicles are fitted with a sophisticated electronic anti-theft alarm system. Some vehicles are equipped with a number of additional security features, some of which are selectable options and some are standard features. In order to ensure maximum security and operating convenience, you are strongly advised to gain a full understanding of the features and alternatives available, by thoroughly reading this section of the handbook.

Using the remote handset

While it is not necessary to point the handset at the vehicle, the handset must be within range of the vehicle when a button is pressed. Note that the operating range may vary depending upon handset battery condition and may sometimes be limited by physical and geographical factors beyond your control. From a security point of view, it may not be wise to unlock unless you are within a few feet of the vehicle.

32

Locks & Alarms

The direction indicator lights flash once to confirm that the vehicle is secure and the anti-theft alarm indicator light (in the instrument panel) starts to flash.

Unlocking

With the remote handset:

Press the unlock (Land Rover) button once to disarm the alarm and unlock the all the doors or, if single point entry is enabled, the driver's door only (also see ‘Single point entry (if enabled)’, page 35).

In either case, the direction indicator lights flash once and the interior lights illuminate.

With the key:

In addition to remote handset operation, the door can be unlocked and the alarm disarmed manually using the key.

Superlocking (if enabled)

Superlocking provides greater security by immobilising the interior door handles, thereby preventing an intruder from gaining entry by smashing a window and reaching inside the vehicle to operate the door handles.

Provided all the doors are fully closed; Superlocking is activated by pressing the handset lock button twice within one second or turning the door lock to the lock position with the key twice within one second.

The direction indicator lights will flash three times after superlocking has been activated and once after superlocking has been de-activated.

WARNING

For safety, NEVER use Superlocking if passengers are to remain inside the vehicle - in an emergency they would not be able to escape. Also, any movement from within the vehicle would activate the alarm, if interior space protection has been activated.

33

Locks & Alarms

Anti-theft alarm indicator light

H2546

This light provides information about the status of the alarm system, as follows:

When the vehicle is locked:

The light flashes rapidly while the alarm is arming itself. After ten seconds, the light adjusts to a slower frequency and continues to flash as an anti-theft deterrent until the alarm is disarmed.

If the engine is immobilised (even though the alarm has been disarmed):

The light may flash slowly, or be illuminated continuously, until the engine is remobilised.

If the alarm has been triggered:

The light will flash rapidly when the alarm is disarmed until the starter switch is turned to position II.

If the remote handset battery power is low:

The light will flash rapidly for ten seconds after the handset has been used when the driver's door is opened.

Mislock

If the driver's door is not fully closed when the handset lock button is pressed, the alarm sounder or vehicle horn will sound once, indicating a mislock. In this case, none of the doors will lock and the alarm system will not be armed.

If a passenger door or other aperture is not fully closed when the handset lock button is pressed, the alarm sounder or vehicle horn will sound once, indicating a mislock. However, the ‘partial arming’ attributes of the security system will enable as much of the system to be armed as possible (all fully closed door or hood apertures will be protected, but an open door will not!). As soon as the open aperture is closed, the system will automatically revert to a fully armed state.

NOTE: If a mislock occurs as a result of an open door, the superlocking features will not be activated.

The mislock audible warning can be disabled by a Land Rover retailer.

If the alarm sounds

If the alarm is triggered, the alarm sounder or vehicle horn will sound for 30 seconds before switching off and resetting itself to the same protection status that existed prior to the alarm being triggered.

To silence the alarm, press either button on the remote handset.

Headlight courtesy delay (if enabled)

When locking the vehicle, the remote handset can be used to illuminate the headlights for 30 seconds. At night this will make it easier for you to unlock the garage, or walk to your house in safety. Operate this feature at the same time as you lock the car, by keeping the handset LOCK button pressed for more than 2 seconds (the doors lock and alarm system arms in the usual way).

To extinguish the lights before the 30 second illumination period has expired, press the lock button again.

The headlight courtesy delay can be disabled by a Land Rover retailer.

34

Locks & Alarms

Single point entry (if enabled)

This is a personal security feature, which enables the driver's door only to be unlocked, leaving the other doors in a locked state. It can be operated by the remote handset as follows:

press the unlock button once to unlock the driver's door.

press a second time (within one minute) to unlock the remaining doors.

Single point entry can be disabled by a Land Rover retailer.

Interior locking switch

H4538

This is a personal security feature which allows the driver to lock (or unlock) all the doors from inside the vehicle (while driving or with the vehicle stationary). Press the lower part of the switch to lock (the alarm will not be armed), and the upper part to unlock.

NOTE: If the locks have already been superlocked, the switch will not release the locks.

Interior door handles and door sill locking buttons

From inside the vehicle, each door can be individually locked by depressing the appropriate door sill button. However, doors cannot be unlocked by raising the sill button.

Use the door handles to unlock, as follows:

First operation of the door handle unlocks the door.

Second operation of the door handle opens the door.

Drive-away door locking*

This security feature locks all the doors automatically when the vehicle speed exceeds 4 mph, and unlocks the doors as soon as the starter switch is turned off (provided the doors had previously been locked by the

speed related feature).

Note that drive-away door locking is not selectable by the driver, and that operation of the door locks by any other means (interior locking switch on the facia panel, for example) will disable the drive-away door locking function for the remainder of the journey, or until the starter switch is turned off and on again.

Drive-away door locking can be selected or deselected by a Land Rover retailer.

35

Locks & Alarms

REMOTE HANDSET BATTERY

The battery should last for approximately three years dependent upon use. When the battery needs to be replaced will be apparent from the following symptoms:

A gradual deterioration in range and performance.

The alarm indicator light in the instrument panel will flash rapidly for 10 seconds after the driver's door is opened.

Always fit a Land Rover YWX10003L or a Panasonic CR2032 replacement battery (available from a Land Rover retailer).

CAUTION: The handset contains delicate electronic circuits and must be protected from impact and water damage, high temperatures and humidity, direct sunlight and the effects of solvents, waxes and abrasive cleaners.

Battery replacement

2.Insert the screwdriver blade as shown in the right hand inset and then carefully slide it along the joint towards the key to release the back of the handset.

3.Use a small flat-bladed screwdriver to prise the battery from its mounting (see illustration), taking care to avoid touching the circuit board or the metal battery contacts.

4.Fit the new battery, ensuring that correct polarity is maintained (‘+’ side facing up). Finger marks will adversely affect battery life; if possible, avoid touching the flat surfaces of the battery and wipe them clean before fitting.

5.Press the two halves of the handset firmly together and ensure that both halves are fully joined to prevent dirt or moisture from entering the handset.

The handset is now ready for use.

H2794

1.With the handset face down, insert the blade of a small flat-bladed screwdriver into the slot at the rear of the handset (see inset) and prise the back upwards.

Locks & Alarms

CHILD-PROOF LOCKS

DOOR LOCKING CUT-OFF SWITCH

H4405

Move the locking levers on the rear doors and taildoor down to engage the child locks.

With the child-proof locks engaged, neither the rear doors nor the taildoor can be opened from inside the vehicle, thereby avoiding the risk of a door being opened accidentally while the vehicle is moving.

WARNING

TO AVOID INJURY OR DEATH, NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN UNSUPERVISED IN THE VEHICLE.

H4406

An inertia switch, operational only with the starter switch in position ‘II’ and the alarm disarmed, prevents the doors centrally locking (or if the doors are locked, will unlock them) in the event of an accident or sudden impact.

When the switch operates, the direction indicator lights flash (if market permits), until the system is reset by turning the starter switch on and off, and opening and closing the driver's door.

Note that doors cannot be locked again until the switch is reset. The inertia switch also cuts off the fuel supply (see ‘FUEL CUT-OFF SWITCH’, page 123).

WARNING

Always check for fuel leaks before resetting the switch!

Activating the switch when the fuel system has been damaged (evidenced by fuel leakage or fuel odor) will cause additional fuel leakage increasing the risk of fire and personal injury.

Seats

SITTING CORRECTLY

o

.30 max

H4691

The seats, head restraints, seat belts and airbags all contribute to the protection of the occupants. Optimal use of these components will give you more protection. Therefore, observe the following points:

Sit in the most upright position with the base of your spine as far back as possible and the backrest not reclined more than 30 degrees.

Adjust the head restraints so that the top of the head restraint is level with the upper portion of the head.

Do not move the front seat too close to the instrument panel. The driver should hold the steering wheel with slightly bent arms. The legs should also be slightly bent so that the pedals can be pressed to the floor.

The seat belt should rest in the center of the shoulder. The lap part should fit tightly

across the hips and not on the stomach.

POWER OPERATED FRONT SEATS

WARNING

To reduce the risk of loss of control and personal injury, DO NOT adjust the driver's seat while the vehicle is in motion.

The seat adjustment controls are situated on the side of the centrally mounted cubby box.

Seat adjustment is only possible when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’ or for 45 seconds after opening the driver's door.

Forward/backward adjustment

H2623

Push and hold the switch forwards or backwards to move the seat to the desired position.

39

Seats

Seat cushion angle adjustment

Seat cushion height adjustment*

H2624

Twist the switch to tilt the seat cushion to the desired position. Note that the front and rear of the switch work independently - the front raising or lowering the front of the cushion, the rear of the switch similarly controlling the rear of the seat cushion.

H2625

On the driver's seat only, the height of the seat cushion can be adjusted. Push the switch up or down to raise or lower the cushion.

Lumbar support adjustment*

H2626

Push the switch up to increase support to the lumbar region of the back. Lower the switch to reduce lumbar support.

40

Seats

Seat back adjustment

HEAD RESTRAINTS

H2627

Twist the switch forward or backward until the desired seat back angle is achieved.

WARNING

DO NOT travel with the seat backs reclined steeply rearwards. Sit in the most upright position with the base of your spine as far back as possible and the seat back not reclined more than 30 degrees from the vertical.

Failure to maintain the correct seat back angle will reduce the effectiveness of the seat belts and increase the risk of serious injury or death in a crash.

H2465

Pull the head restraint up or down until the cushion is level with the back of the head.

WARNING

Head restraints are designed to support the back of the head (NOT THE NECK), and to restrain rearward movement of the head in the event of a collision. The restraint must be positioned level with the head to be effective.

DO NOT drive or carry passengers with the head restraints removed from occupied seats, or adjust the head restraints while the vehicle is in motion.

Failure to have the head restraint installed and properly positioned will increase the potential for serious injuries.

Head restraint removal

Turn both mounting collars fully anti-clockwise and pull the restraint upwards to remove.

After replacing a head restraint turn the mounting collars clockwise.

41

Seats

FOLDING ARMRESTS*

HEATED FRONT SEATS*

H2553

Some vehicles are fitted with adjustable front seat armrests, which can be either stowed vertically in line with the seat backrest when not required, or folded horizontally to serve as an arm/elbow rest.

The height/angle of each armrest can be adjusted by turning the knob set into the end of the armrest: clockwise to raise and anti-clockwise to lower.

H2517

With the starter switch turned on and the engine running, press the switches to operate the heating elements in either the driver's or front passenger seat (the indicator light in the switch illuminates). Press a second time to switch off.

The seat heaters are thermostatically controlled and operate intermittently to achieve and then maintain a predetermined temperature between 79°F and 97°F (26° - 36°C).

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The seat heaters consume considerable power from the battery. For this reason, they should ONLY be operated while the engine is running.

42

Seats

FOLDING THE REAR SEATS

H2493

WARNING

DO NOT adjust any part of a seat while the vehicle is in motion.

Vehicle movement may cause the unlatched seat to suddenly shift, potentially causing injury.

One or both parts of the split rear seat can be either partially or fully folded to further increase the rear loadspace, using the following instructions:

H2549

1.Remove the loadspace cover (see

‘LOADSPACE COVER*’, page 102).

2.To release either part of the backrest, lift the lever shown in the inset, and then fold the backrest onto the seat base.

3.Ensure the outer head restraints are fully lowered, the armrest is stowed and the center head restraint is removed.

4.To release the seat base, pull the release strap upward (arrowed in illustration). With backrest and seat base released, the assembly can be folded forward as shown.

5.Ensure the loadspace cover is stowed in the rear passenger seat footwell, under the stowed seat.

WARNING

It is extremely dangerous to ride in the cargo area. In a collision, anyone riding in this area is more likely to be injured or killed. Do not allow anyone to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and safety belts. Be sure that everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a safety belt properly.

Seats

Returning the seat to the upright position

Push the seat assembly back onto the floor - the floor catches should latch with the base of the seat. Then raise the backrest.

If the backrest cannot be raised easily, DO NOT force it. This indicates that the seat base has not fully engaged with the floor catches (note that the seat assembly is designed to prevent the backrest from being raised unless the seat is properly secured to the floor).

With the seat base secure, the backrest can be raised and locked in position (none of the RED panel on the release lever should be visible when the backrest is correctly latched). Ensure that any head restraints which were removed, are repositioned before driving the vehicle. Finally, refit the loadspace cover.

WARNING

After the seat is returned to the upright position, the latching mechanism should be checked and physically tested to ensure that both the seat base and backrest are secure before driving.

In a frontal impact, if the rear seat is not secured (fully latched), it may swing forward contacting the seat in front of it increasing the risk of injury or death to occupants in those seats.

OCCASIONAL REAR SEATS*

NOTE: The occasional rear seats are fitted with an interlock that prevents the seat back from being raised if the seat is not latched to the floor properly.

WARNING

For safety, before driving with passengers seated in the occasional rear seats, ensure that all occupants are properly restrained.

All unbelted occupants will be subjected to a greater risk of injury or death in a crash or rollover than belted occupants.

Do not carry passengers in the occasional rear seats if a dog guard is fitted between the second row of seats and the loadspace. In the event of a crash or rollover, occupants of these seats could impact with a dog guard so increasing the risk of injury.

Seat Belts

SEAT BELT SAFETY

WARNING

Seat belts are life saving equipment. In a collision, occupants not wearing a seat belt can be thrown around inside, or possibly thrown out of the vehicle. This is likely to result in more serious injuries than would have been the case had a seat belt been properly worn. It may even result in loss of life!

Don't take chances with safety!

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

The airbag supplemental restraint system (SRS) is designed to add to the overall effectiveness of the seat belts. It does not replace them. SEAT BELTS MUST ALWAYS BE WORN!

Ensure that all seat belts are worn correctly - an improperly worn seat belt can increase the risk of death or serious injury in the event of a collision.

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

WARNING

DO NOT fit more than one person into a belt; this could result in the occupants striking each other and causing injury in the event of a crash.

DO NOT use, or attempt to fit, a seat belt that is twisted or obstructed in any way that could impede its smooth operation. If a belt is twisted, it must be straightened before use. Using a twisted or obstructed seat belt could increase the risk of injury in a crash.

ALWAYS use the seat belt lock (buckle) nearest the wearer. If the belt is locked in the wrong place, the seat belt will not fit correctly and may ride up over the abdomen, causing serious internal injury in a crash.

Seat Belts

WEARING SEAT BELTS CORRECTLY

Fastening the seat belts

H2488

Inertia reel belts are fitted to all front and rear seating positions, and also to the occasional rear seats*.

Draw the belt over the shoulder and across the chest and, ensuring that the webbing is not twisted, insert the metal tongue plate into the buckle nearest the wearer - a ‘CLICK’ indicates that the belt is securely locked.

In some circumstances, perhaps due to the vehicle being parked on a slope, the inertia mechanism may engage, preventing the initial extension of a belt. This is not a fault - ease the belt free and use it.

Adjust the seat belt to eliminate any slack in the webbing. DO NOT slacken the webbing by holding the belt away from the body - to be fully effective, the seat belt must remain in full contact with the body at all times. Also, ensure that the lap belt fits as low on the hips as possible and that the shoulder belt passes across the shoulder without slipping off or pressing on the neck.

Positioning the belt

WARNING

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 seats in a normal, upright, position.

ALWAYS fit the lap strap as low on the hips as possible (never across the abdomen) and ensure that the diagonal belt passes across the shoulder without slipping off or pressing on the neck.

DO NOT travel with the seat backs reclined steeply rearwards. Sit in the most upright position with the base of your spine as far back as possible and the seat back not reclined more than 30 degrees from the vertical. Seat belts are only effective when they are properly positioned on the body - a steeply reclined seat could allow a passenger to slip under either the shoulder or the lap belt.

DO NOT wear the shoulder belt under your arm. In an accident this could increase your chances of being injured.

Seat Belts

PREGNANT WOMEN

WARNING

Pregnant women must wear a correctly positioned seat belt; it is safer for mother and unborn child.

There are many ways that the belt can be misused for the sake of comfort, but there is only one way of wearing it safely.

During pregnancy, women should wear the lap belt across the hips below the baby, with the diagonal belt passing across the shoulder, between the breasts and to one side of the baby - if in doubt, consult a doctor.

H5157

Never place anything between you and the seat belt in an attempt to cushion the impact in the event of an accident. It can be dangerous and reduce the effectiveness of the seat belt in preventing injury.

Upper anchorage adjustment (front seats only)

H2491

The height of the seat belt upper anchorage can be adjusted for comfort AND safety. Squeeze the control between finger and thumb to raise or lower the anchorage. For safety, the seat belt should always be worn with the webbing crossing the shoulder MIDWAY BETWEEN THE NECK AND THE EDGE OF THE SHOULDER.

WARNING

Misadjustment of the seat belt could reduce its effectiveness in a crash. Always ensure that the anchorage is correctly located and properly locked in one of the height positions before driving and DO NOT adjust the height once the vehicle is in motion.

49

Seat Belts

Where possible, rear seat passengers should adjust their position on the seat to enable the seat belt webbing to cross the shoulder without pressing on the neck.

WARNING

Always transport children 12 years and under in the second row seats and always properly use appropriate child restraints.

For children that are too small to fit the 3-point seat belt properly, the use of appropriate child safety seats or belt-positioning booster seats is recommended.

NOTE: For additional information, (see ‘CHILD RESTRAINTS FOR SMALL CHILDREN AND BABIES’, page 52).

Releasing the belt

Press the RED button on the seat belt buckle.

FRONT SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONERS

The seat belt pre-tensioners activate in conjunction with the airbag SRS and provide additional protection in the event of a severe frontal impact on the vehicle (see ‘HOW THE AIRBAG SRS WORKS’, page 59). The pre-tensioners reduce any slack in both the lap and diagonal portions of the belts, thereby reducing forward movement of the belt wearer in the event of a severe frontal collision.

The airbag SRS warning light on the instrument panel will alert you to any malfunction of the seat belt pre-tensioners (see ‘WARNING LIGHTS’, page 67).

If the pre-tensioners have been activated, the seat belts will still function as restraints, and must be worn in the event that the vehicle remains in a driveable condition, however, for the pre-tensioner to work properly again, it must be replaced.

NOTE: The seat belt pre-tensioners will NOT be activated by rear, side or minor frontal impacts.

WARNING

The seat belt pre-tensioners will only be activated once and then MUST BE REPLACED by a Land Rover retailer. Failure to replace the pre-tensioners will reduce the efficiency of the vehicle's front restraint systems.

After any frontal impact, always have the seat belts and pre-tensioners checked and, if necessary, replaced by a Land Rover retailer.

In the interests of safety, it is recommended that removal or replacement of the front seats and seat belts, with the use of factory-specified parts, should ONLY be carried out by a Land Rover retailer.
