2012 Defender 110 Puma 2.2 USW Stornoway Grey

Great post, very useful. You state "The oil is Castrol Magnatec 5W-30 A1 Fully Synthetic Engine Oil (Recommended by Ford) " do you know if this would be the same oil for the 2.2l engine.

Hi,

I changed the oil in my Gearbox / Transfer / Diffs and put new grease in the UJ's today. Thought I would add some pics to aid anyone using this excellent thread which helped me. My 2009 110 has just spun around to 30K. I drained 2.2Litres out of the gearbox but only 2litres out of Transfer Box. Diffs were low to Rolling Eyes


The Oils used.

Fuchs 'Titan' for the Transfer box (2.4litres)
Castrol 'Syntrans' for the Gearbox (2.2Litres)
Castrol Axle 'EPX' for the Diffs (1.6Litres per Diff)



Transfer Drain plug -


Transfer Filler plug -

Hope that helps Smile Cheers,

Anyone know the oil filter number for the 2.2 Puma. 2012

This is quoted in first part of thread " The Puma has 1 filter, part number LR004459" but dealer has supplied the following

LR 30778

That is correct - LR030778 supersedes LR00459. The oil filter for the 2.4 and 2.2 TDCi engines is the same part.

Hi there, just got my 110 utility xs, ex-demo with approx 2k miles. Swapped my 08 vogue SE tdv8 during the process, bit of a shock coming out of that, however, have to say I wish I'd done it sooner. Any ideas to the question posed above by Jayaway44, castrol Magnatec A1 for 2.4 vehicles without the DPF, but what about the 2.2's? The castrol website says refer to manufacturer, my local dealer didn't seem to know, then they said they only use Shell anyway. I have asked a few people but have received mixed replies. Any ideas? Thanks and good detail MartinK. Thumbs Up

You have to use a Ford M2C934-B like the Castrol Edge Pro 5w30.

Cancelled my 90

I was due to take delivery of a 2012 90 XS today , The vehicle was a dealership demonstrator with 2000 miles, I was perfectly aware of the water ingress and
corrosion issues and had booked it in to have the chassis treated , I own another aluminum car and have always used ACF 50 and had planned to treat the defender the same way i was prepaired to except this even though spending nearly 30 grand.
What has really concerned me was the gearbox issues that i have read about in this forum and how many times members vehicles have been back to dealerships
without the fault being resolved , It would appear that landrover arn't planing any recall may be this is not a widespread problem and i have over reacted in canceling my vehicle.

This is my first post on this forum and i would appreciate your views

Are we sure this is the right oil?

No issues from mine after a 2000 mile trip to France and back in the heat. Its the one recommended by OPIE oils too.

and as Martin said... Not the same box either. Puma's are Ford unit's. Cheers,

Minor addendum to this; my MY11 doesn't use a Torx T50 for the gearbox fill and drain, it uses an 8mm Allen key.
Don't know if LR changed things at some point, but mine definitely aren't Torx.

Belgium 2008 Defender 110 Puma 2.4 HCPU Santorini Black

Hi all,

Using the info on this thread I've just done the change of the engine oil and paper filter.

Although it is stated here that the plastic filter housing should be tightened with a 35Nm torque, the housing itself has 25 -0/+5 Nm printed on the outside (also visible on the photo that Martin posted).
This is what mine looks like:

So I wonder now which value is correct ? Peter,

Defender 110 StaWa - Td5
Defender 110 HCPU - Puma
Defender 90 Soft Top - Td5

I have just been giving my 2011 90 hardtop a bit of a going over greasing and changing fluids etc and noticed that the drain on the main gearbox needs a 8 mm hex key. That's no problem, however the filler appears to be a much larger hex, much bigger than anything in my set.....does anyone know the size of this for this year's car? XS Pete stated that his is the 8mm hex for both fill and drain, some were torx.....it seems Ford used anything going when they built these ...

Had a new transfer box put in mine at end of warranty as a noise like bag pipes (a little bit anyway)kept getting a bit worse as I drove it. I said engine, cook said g/box and independent said rear axle. The Cook won, the dealer said transfer box.
Anyway as I'd decided to change all the oils at 100K (miles) I thought I'd see what the stealer had used in the new T/Box and how much.
Spot on for level but then they could hardly get that wrong, but the oil was a thick greeny looking Censored which smelt like 85/140 to me.
Searched everywhere and got Castrol Syntrax 75 - 90 universal +
Now to do the main box and I think I'll use the same stuff.
AlanH.
