2012 Freelander 2 TD4 XS Manual Aintree Green
land rover detachable towbar

Picked up my 2012 Freelander 2 today and had a more in depth look at it

found that it had a detachable towbar that looks as if it hasnt been removed for years, so doused it in penetration fluid
One of the features I looked for when purchasing but dont know if I can trust its efficiency

I am in the same position, on mine the lock barrel is completely seized despite many efforts. It is permanently locked on now! Might look into a replacement but unsure of best way forward.

Never got the removable tow bar thing. Is it really so unsightly that you have to hide it away? Personally I like a big chunk of steel at the back of my cars. Saved significant damage to my cars on 3 occasions, the offending vehicles were not so fortunate 😆 Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948
