First off the ignition works great. A couple of things I ran into. On my vehicle the wire harness that plugs in under the dash was to wedged in and hard to get to so I left it plugged in and worked from inside of the vehicle. Just make sure you route harness wires out of the way so they do not interfere with the installation of casing. Also make sure the end of harness that attaches to the ignition is in the off position. PROBLEM. The screw holes on the harness that attaches to the ignition on my vehicle had brass inserts that the new screws got stuck in and I had to remove the inserts. Ignition works great and no programming.

I connected it up and fired the engine as soon as I turned the key.

The long, slender key with the narrowest double cut in the center has caused me the last exasperation, thanks to Atlantic British! I'd broken the tip off the key in the ignition three times, and three times I was able to find an old-school locksmith who could extract it and get me back on the road. Then I moved to Wyoming and when the key broke off yet again, the two locksmiths in the county tried and failed to extract it. I found this great, economical fix from Atlantic British, with a great instructional video for removal of the old ignition set and installation of the new one. They picked and shipped it overnight and I was back on the road less than 36 hours after ordering it! Thanks!

My part was shipped promptly and flawlessly. Installed quick without incidents like some retro fit items have used. This’s the first time purchasing from Atlantic British, with fair pricing and issueless ordering , l will be back. Glad I found these guys. The instructional video hit the mark for me.

The video on the website sold me. 15 minutes from start to finish. Would love to have been able to do this in a lighted workshop, but the install went well.

The kit installed in under 30 minutes , with no issues. The "how to" video was very helpful and I recommend that others view it before attempting to trying it yourself. The key now works as in any other vehicle, without the pushing/pulling that we've all had to live with up to now.

Recently purchased a 2002 Discovery. The OEM ignition wouldn't work any longer. Key stuck and wouldn't turn the engine over. Installed the new ignition in less than 30 minutes and works like a dream. And my original key still locks and unlocks truck remotely. Atlantic British is the best !!!!!

My ignition locked up one day. Had my 04 Land Rover Discovery towed to shop. They couldn't get it to lock up again but I bought the replacement kit anyway. It finally happened again. I replaced the ignition switch in about an hour after watching the video. It was easy to replace and works great! Very happy!

I gave this ignition swap over kit a 5 and had it installed in 45 minutes. Very straightforward install. It works just like new. No mystery here. Built like a little tank and should wear for years. Well worth the price because of the easy replacement, directions, and easy operation. Works first time and every time.

Product is fine (still expensive), engagement still a little stiff, for lack of a better word. Freight to PA is too high and deters me from purchasing other parts. Otherwise you have a great company.
