Technicians trained on the All-New Freelander 2Les Potts Four Wheel Drive became the first independent service centre in the UK to have all their technicians trained on the All-New Freelander 2. The PDI course is an introduction to the new Freelander and all the training was carried out at The Land RoverTechnical Academy based at Gaydon,Warwickshire.

Upon completion, our technicians are now able to:

  • Describe the new features of All-New Freelander 2
  • State the location of the vehicle jacking points
  • Describe the PDI procedure
  • State which documents are used when carrying out the PDI procedure
  • Use Global Technical Reference (GTR) to locate the relevant PDI documents and PDI information
  • Identify which software version is loaded on Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS)
  • Check GTR for the latest IDS patch files
  • Download Patch files from GTR and install patch files onto IDS
  • Recognise how transport mode effects the operation of the All-New Freelander 2
  • Use the PDI application of IDS
  • Use IDS to calibrate windows and moonroof
  • Use IDS to programme vehicle handsets

All-New Freelander 2Les Potts commented:-

‘’It was the aim for all my technicians to attend the All-New Freelander 2 training before the launch, to assure our growing data base of Land Rover customers in the North of England that they had piece of mind when they booked there new vehicle in for its first service. For 2007 we are booked on a number of All-New Freelander 2 training courses which look at specific areas of the vehicle such as diesel & petrol engine. We are currently undergoing extensive training at the Land Rover Technical Academy to ensure we are kept up to date with all changes to vehicle specification. Our IDS diagnostic system is now wireless connected at all times and updates software patches from Land Rover automatically as they become available. We are committed to offering the highest standard of quality to all our customers and have the training and support to ensure that there is no better place to get your Land Rover serviced.’’
