There is a splice joint under the passenger side sill plate, under the second plate, about adjacent to the right front seat mounting. Split the harness open. Look for a blue tape with three thin green with white stripe wires. Open the tape. The joint is corroded and broken apart. This feeds the alarm rf receiver. Fix the splice and your remotes will work. - Kyle L.

Sounds horribly like a leaking heater hose or the heater core on the way out. The other option might be the aircon drain. Remove the cover panel under the dashboard, get a torch and inspect all visible hoses

Could be several things, but it will save you time and money if you do some preliminary investigation yourself.
There is a good chance the noise is nothing more serious than a broken exhaust mount. Get underneath (when the engine is cold) and shake the pipe where it exits the vehicle - you will soon see if the rubber mount is broken,
Another possibility is a worn suspension bush - look around to see if all the bushes appear to be intact.
Another possibility is a worn prop-shaft universal - ditto
None of these jobs should be expensive to have fixed, but it will save you being ripped off if you know in advance what might be the cause

Yes it seems that a drain is blocked or a seal is leaking. A possible DIY fix is to get under the vehicle with an air line, find the 4 tubes for the drains that exit next to the pillars and blow them clear.
Fixing defective seals is much more work and it will probably be best to get it done by a sunroof specialist - NOT a Land Rover dealer. The cost may be nasty but better than either living with the leak OR spending hours on it if you do not know precisely whet you are doing

This is not a problem you should try to solve. The workshop obviously stuffed up and it is their job to fix it, even if they have to end the vehicle elsewhere to get it right, Do NOT be nice about it!

My guess is that the ECU needs to be reset and only an experienced Land Rover shop will have the gear and experience to do it correctly

This happened to my 2005 LR3. The 'FIX' i used was to remove the AMP located under the passenger seat. Remove the top to expose the digital circuits, and proceed to heat up the entire board with a hair dryer. Basically you are reflowing the Solder, to make the connections again. It worked perfect, that was 3 years ago, still working today.

There is definitely something out of the ordinary going on. The brake calipers have two pistons on one side which means that the whole caliper has to be able to move axially as the brakes are applied to evenly clamp the two friction pads against the rotor. There are no springs to release the brake pads from the caliper.
Probably one of the pistons is stuck causing the assembly to bind until you reverse the rotor's motion which releases the binding force. It is probably the lower piston of the two that is binding because that is where any crud in the brake fluid tends to accumulate.
If you take off the caliper off, you may be able to loosen the stuck piston with a brake piston removal tool and bleed fresh fluid through the system.

Get this to a Land Rover tech asap.
Module could be a central convenience module or body control module. Either way, wiring in these vehicles can be very tricky. There are just certain vehicles you don't mess around with unless you have all kinds of time on your hands. Bring it to a certified Land Rover garage. Could definitely be the basis for all of your odd issues.

Leaking from where and how bad is the leak? If only minor, get under the vehicle and check for signs of leakage at the drain plug and around the oil filter - these are the most likely culprits. If not obvious, clean everything up, drive and look again.
If these places are not the source, (assuming this is a petrol model) look at the rear of the engine from the top and from underneath in case it is a leaking head or valley gasket

This has to be done by a Land Rover service dealer.
