Land Rover Defender heating installation kit with Autoterm Air 2D (Planar 2D)
Parking heater Land Rover Defender
With this installation kit for an Autoterm Air 2D (Planar 2D) parking heater, you get everything you need for installation in your Defender.
To make it easy to retrofit a parking heater for the Defender, we have put together a kit that can be installed without a high-end workshop. It consists of a cubby box elevation that already has all the necessary holes for the air outlets of the Autoterm Air 2D and a panel with a mount for your desired control unit. In addition, there is a mounting plate with the holders for the burner intake, the exhaust pipe and the fuel line. The icing on the cake is that it also includes a fuel extraction system for which you don't even have to remove the tank. (Only for vehicles without a flow-through tank in the rear right wheel housing).
Mounting the Cubbybox Raiser
For mounting, you only have to unscrew your Cubbybox and the original base plate of the Cubbybox. Our mounting plate fits directly onto the holes of the original. The heater and the Cubbybox elevation are then attached to it. Your Cubbybox is then mounted on top.
Installation of the tank pick-up & electrics
The installation of the tank pick-up is also very easy. All you have to do is detach your filler neck from the original tank and shorten it a little. The shortened piece is then replaced with our supplied adapter and screwed back onto the filler neck.
In the last step, you still have to wire the electrics, but everything for this is also included in the kit.
Altitude kit and heating maintenance
The heater is equipped with an altitude kit: our tests up to 3440m went without a hitch, we think no major problems are to be expected up to approx. 4000m. The software itself also calculates up to 5000m. However, this does not mean that it cannot soot! If you leave the altitudes, run your heater at full power for an hour so that deposits can burn off.
Free-burning is also necessary if you operate the heater at the lowest setting for a long time. Set it to full power every 1 - 2 weeks at the latest, so that the combustion chamber gets really hot again. This is the most important and at the same time the only maintenance measure on the heater.
The idea is that the heating is used for continuous running. This means that the heating is not switched off, but continues to run at a low power level. Keeping a room at the right temperature uses much less energy than trying to heat up a cold interior within 30 minutes.
PU-27: The digital control panel with OLED display has an integrated temperature sensor (cable length 1.8 m), but an external temperature sensor can also be connected if the control panel is mounted in an unsuitable location (e.g. in a cabinet). Control via a fixed power level is also possible. The unit has a timer function. Menu navigation in English and Russian.
All Autoterm heaters have an E-mark (e2) and can therefore be installed without registration. The hole pattern corresponds to that of the familiar heaters from Eberspächer or Webasto.
