Pretty sure it's just called a Rover propshaft tool, cheap on ebay.co.uk


Iva had my xbrake for about 3 years now. One thing to note is to make sure to silicone the shit out of the brake pad to the caliper on the non piston side. Mine worked it's way loose and rattled like crazy

The driveline doesn't like it one bit. The factory e-brake can stop a truck at any speed and just works. The obvious ? is why would I apply it at speed....I used to be in the habit of pulling emergency brake after I go bye a cop so not to light up my brake lights. You only pull it once at 70+ to break that engrained habit.

I will add that it is a very nice piece of engineering and top shelf quality though.

Also don't know if you know about these tools but it makes the driveshaft a breeze to take off
What did you buy from this link?

Handbrake

Do I have to buy the disc separately?

How did you end up only paying 275gbp with shipping???

X Brakes for Land Rover Defender
Just email them for a quote shipped to your zip. The price shown includes vat so it's a bunch less when you remove that
