LR4 Brake Advice requested

Going to do pads and rotors, front and rear on the LR4.

Anything tricky to look out for? Look pretty straightforward in the parts diagrams.
Remove caliper and pads, remove setscrew, remove and replace rotor, reassemble.

Truck is going in for some warranty work, so will have LR do a brake fluid flush and refill, it is at specified mileage for this.

Sensors? Don't know if they're separate or not.

This was really helpful when I did my fronts. The rear is a little more work with the parking brake.
Buy new set screws. Mine weren't reusable.
https://www.landrovermerriamparts.com Had really good genuine prices.
And yeah get new sensors. One front and one rear (at least on LR3)

Not sure if the lr4 is the same as the lr3, but if it is, make sure the rear parking actuator is bed in correctly.

Land Rover Merriam beats Land Rover International with prices, thanks.

Will give a look at UK but shipping will prob negate savings.

By sensor, do you all mean wear indicator?

Yes, iirc they are not reusable. I see they are sold separately.

Their site says parts ship in 3-7 days. Wow! What has been your experience?

LR4 Brake Advice requested

You need to release the parking brake set on the rears, then retighten it correctly after. Basically the only thing on the brake job that's a small pita. You need to align the hole on the brake rotor with the set wheel then loosen, on reassembly tighten till it's tight then back off 3-4 clicks. It's in the repair manual.
I go OEM pads and whatever rotors (not the cheapest stuff but middle of the road, it's just iron anyways, no magic there.
