I discovered that my p38 was originalyy registered on a private plate, which is probably why most places like eurocarparts etc get a lot of stuff wrong.

Gil...allowing for my total inability to not see the forest for the trees at times given, I still need to say that the link provided "http://rangerovers.pub/static/rave.zip" just takes me to the main index page for the site. Is this link no longer working?

I have had a few different versions of RAVE myself and all have either mysteriously disappeared (read operator error) or stopped functioning altogether.
This last bit I don't understand at all but the PDFs simply don't load anymore.
I need a fresh copy.

I've obviously broken some redirect, thanks for pointing that out.

try https://rangerovers.pub/downloads/rave.zip instead.

Thanks for that, just edited the FAQ on .net. We'll get them over here sooner or later......

There is nothing on a P38 that can't be mended in one way or another but you do need some instruction and there's a lot of it about. You may have heard of RAVE which was the Land Rover workshop manual but it hasn't been updated since 2005. But, as the P38 ceased production in 2002, who cares.

RAVE can be downloaded from http://rangerovers.pub/static/rave.zip but it might take a while as it's a pretty big file. To run it, simply double click the rave-lr.pdf file and you're in.

There's also an online version that can be found at http://workshop-manuals.com/landrover/p38/range_rover_workshop_manual_volume_1/

The full parts manual can be found at http://new.lrcat.com/

and if you can't figure out exactly what the problem is, there's quite a few decent guides to the common faults that can be found at http://www.rangerovers.net/newrremedies.html although it is a little out of date now with some of the advice as it hasn't been updated since the original site was taken over by a Canadian company who allow it to be run by the main reason this forum has been created.

There's also a few archived articles of use that SpiggyTopes (Peter) has uploaded to Google drive that can be found here https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4azhgT5UI-QWW9TQlhUWE9FWUE&usp=sharing

Thanks very much for these links especially to Spiggy Topes, I have now got those docs in my G drive!
cheers all,

Hoppy

I have, as suggested, downloaded RAVE but navigating is difficult as when I "simply double click the rave-lr.pdf file and you're in", I'm not in. It doesn't launch and although I can navigate the files manually, it's not easy. Any suggestions on how it I can resolve this will be gratefully received

What happens when you double click rave-lr? Does it open a splash screen, a main menu screen with the different models it covers or just sit there and look at you?

It shows me a page with buttons as I expect the software page should appear but the buttons are not interactive.

The buttons don't do anything (I don't think) but clicking on the vehicle type should.

Nope, nothing on the page does anything at all.

I can't help I'm afraid but I don't use that version, I use the full version that was supplied to the main dealers on CD. If you want to try that one, it's on my Google drive here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzxqPPypF5J5b1ZlU3RpMmVwanc/view?usp=share_link&resourcekey=0-vHS47g5cRLxx8_RYv4IQ0g. However, it is an iso image file of the original CD and has an older version of Acrobat embedded. As an iso file, it needs to be burned to a CD first and can then be run from that or the entire CD copied to hard drive and run from there.
