Rear recovery eyes for L663 Defender

I have just returned fuming from my local dealers parts department where I was told that I cannot purchase, and the dealer would not fit, two pcs Rear Recovery Eye part number LR139442. The assistant advised me that these part “are not meant for your car”. If this is the case kindly advise the correct part number.

I don’t want to use the screw in rear towing eye for off-road work as I believe that is not its intended use.

I have also sent a PM through the forum to you about this with the cars details on it Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

Yes, that’s where I have seen them and got the part number from,but it seems odd that I could buy them for a Defender X with the VIN from a model yet to be built but same car but lower spec and you cannot buy them from LR! Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

You could always try Powerful UK who have them on their website and also did a video on YouTube on fitting them

I’m still waiting for a reply from LRCS as to why they are available from my local dealer because they aren’t meant to be fitted to my model. I’ll probably end up going to PowerfulUK and getting the local indie to fit them anyway. Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

Yes, according to LRCS dealership had found a glitch in the parts catalogue which prevented them ordering and fitting to any model than the X, it’s now fixed, my recovery rings are waiting in the parts department for fitting in two weeks time along with replacement of my A pillar trims that have now also arrived at the dealership but I cannot get a slot in the workshop due to work load in the dealership - physical distancing and anti-Covid restrictions are creating a back log of work there. Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon
