Best Workshop Manuals

Just bought a 95 D90. My wife finally gave in. Just curious if anyone has some lessons learned on shop manuals. I have seen everything from a Haynes manual to manuals on CD. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Also, Maggie (my Defender) makes a whining noise between 40 and 50 mph. Is this normal or does it mean immenent transmission failure? I found out yesterday just how much is between me and transfer case when installing satellite radio underneath the cubby. The noise is not terrible. She has 60,000 miles.

Glad to finally be a member of the club. I've waited 8 years to own a LR.

LOL.....LOL!!!

That's pretty good Jimmy.

I haven't seen a manual that I thought really covered a NAS Defender as well as I would like. I have one that you can get from Rover North or Rovers Down South and it is a big help.

Welcome aboard! I have the Land Rover issue manual from Rovers North that is specific to the NAS Defenders, although it doesn't cover everything in the best detail it is about the best you can get. I also have the 1000 page generic Land Rover issue Defender manual, it covers most of the NAS basics but it lacks as far as electrical and the V8 but, it covers all diesels. I would go with the NAS manual from Rovers North.

As for the whinning, it is pretty normal to have some coming from the t-case. I believe the preload on the input gear bearings has to do with much of the whinning. I know of a few defenders that have gone for years without an issue that have whinny gear boxes. Since it is new to you I would just be careful that it does not change in pitch or noise level, that would be a good indication that something is wrong.

Take the opportunity to change all the fluids. There can be confusion over what to put in the transmission.
