Defender HD10 2000 mile service ????
Wife has a 2016 HD10 with 2,000 STREET miles on it. She runs around our area with our German Shepherd in the back usually at 35 to 45 MPH for 7 or 8 miles at a time. I have run it off road for maybe 20 miles in dry, non-dusty conditions. It has only run in 4wd for probably 5 or 6 miles. One time the trans switch was accidentally put in 4wd/rear wheel lock and it was used to tow a 1000 lb. trailer for 4 miles on pavement at 35 mph. I'm a little more of a lead foot than she is but still rarely run over 50 in 2wd for any long period. I have done 2 oil and filter changes and the air cleaner looks new.
Do you think I need to do all the services that are listed in the manual for the 2K service since it has seen such light use? Doing the valve adjustment on the front cylinder looks like a plumbers nightmare... Front and rear diff. oil changes...Trans oil change....belt inspection...etc. I can see doing the trans and rear diff and grease all fittings. Any advice you can give will be greatly appreciated! It has been trouble free except for the shift linkage recall.
Any good source for a Service Manual! Thanks!!
