Good afternoon and thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I am a fully qualified vehicle technician with over thirty years in the trade, hopefully I can help.

I would always recommend Rimmer Bros for land Rover parts, they are well established and know their product well.

There site lists a few alternatives CLICK HERE and I would be happy with the aftermarket application they have.

There are different units fitted but unfortunately knowing which starter your Land Rover has can only be accessed by checking the old unit. There are picture on the Rimmer site, and the phone line does allow you to speak with a representative who will be able to advise.

I hope this answers your question but do please feel free to ask any further details by replying to this thread.

Thank you for using Just Answer.
