The brake calipers hold the brake pads in place and use hydraulic pressure to press the pads against the rotors when the brakes are applied. The bolts that hold the rear calipers in place may not have been sufficiently tightened during vehicle assembly. If the mounting bolts were to come loose, the caliper could detach from the vehicle resulting in loss of braking ability. The loose caliper could also strike the wheel, causing sudden deflation of a tire. Either of these situations may increase the risk of a crash. Land Rover dealers will inspect and tighten the rear brake caliper mounting bolts to correct this concern.
Land Rover LR2 Recalls
Landrover is recalling 2010–2011 LR2 models due to a shorting bar in the clockspring that may become disconnected when the driver's air bag module connector is installed. This may cause the driver's front air bag not to deploy as intended, increasing the risk of injury. Landrover will install a spacer in the electrical connector at fault to correct this issue.
