Well done. I have mine coming up next year.

Any thoughts on when to change the Power Steering Fluid? It's the only fluid I don't see listed in the Maintenance Schedule.

Yes i was going to do that at the same time but I ordered 12L of PENTOSIN CHF 202 through Amazon.com for ~$80 but it's been out of stock for a while and i have not received it. I guess i could buy just 3L for like $60 but i like saving money.
As soon as i get it, i plan to do it.

there are great videos done by Volvosweden on youtube. my lr2 has the same engine, trans, transfer and differential as his volvo. So you can also use the same volvo fluids if you want to save some money. look at his transmission fluid change video.
he also has videos on transfer case, haldex and diff.

for trans i got 13 quarts of trans fluid total so i did 3 fill/flushed with 3 quarts at a time and the final fill of 4 quarts to level it correctly.

there are no drain plugs for transfer case, haldex and diff, so you need a pump or syringe.

Transfer case, i was only able to extract 500 ml with a syringe. So i added 500 ml new fluid, extract again 500 ml and final fill of 500 ml til fluid runs out of the fill hole.
extract 100 ml for the proper level.

Haldex: i was also going to check and clean the filter but when i extracted the fluid it was very clean, so just a fluid change, extracted much as i can using a syringe (i think about 200 ml) put in new fluid til runs out and extracted additional 70 ml.

Differential, able to extract about 600 ml, put in new fluid til it runs out, pumped out again and filled with new fluid.

had to buy t55 torx to remove the trans fill plug and 17mm hex for the trans drain plug otherwise standard tools

Great post! Thanks!

one more question, I have been doing a little research on the Mobil one 3309 fluid and I can't find any in my area. Can I use any T-IV fluid or is there only the mobil one? What are my options?
I don't really want to go to Land Rover and spend $200 on ATF if I can find another oil that will match the LR2 engine.

I also called Toyota but they are out of stock wanted to do it this weekend while I have the air filter housing off while I change my power steering pump.

Thanks again.

Ended up getting some castrol transmax synthetic.

Just out of curiosity how many bottles of haldex did it take? 3? That stuff isn't cheap

What did you use for the transmission temperature measurement for leveling purposes?

One of those thermal heat guns. Probably not as accurate but I'm sure it was close.
