Yep. It's expensive. For those serious about their vehilce, this is the premium part. We used to make them from hardware-store fittings from China, but the product was cheezy.
Metal (brass) replacement coolant bleed tee fitting is a direct replacement. New model with rubber valve seal makes cooling system bleeding super-easy. For those wanting a reliable cooling system for their LR3, this metal "bleeder T" fitting is a must.
Land Rover LR3 (V8) came with a cooling system bleed valve installed in a hose by the thermostat housing (water outlet) which is a known issue. The original is made from plastic and breaks without warning: a sad day for want of a silly part.
Fabricated using a US-made Parker-Hannifin fitting and cap, and a MIL-spec seal ring.
Fits all LR3 (Discovery 3) and all Range Rover Sport through 2009.
For those who could care less about quality, the original part is quite available from the usual suspects:
LR027661G for ten or twelve bucks plus shipping.
