Land Rover Range Rover Recalls
The air bag warning light may illuminate and the passenger front air bag may not deploy as expected. Failure of the front air bag to deploy in the event of a crash increases the risk of injury. Dealers will update the software in the air bag control module to correct this issue. This recall is scheduled to begin by December 21, 2009. The Land Rover recall number is P020.
The front differential coupling sleeve and the propeller shaft may be misaligned, resulting in spline wear over time. As this wear progresses, abnormal noise and/or vibration may develop. Continued vehicle operation can eventually result in the splines shearing and loss of drive force to the wheels, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a revised design of the propeller shaft, flange kit, and heat shield kit to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on January 6, 2009 The Land Rover recall number is P041.
Certain vehicles may have been assembled with an incorrectly manufactured automatic transmission parking pawl guide plate. As a result, the transmission may not engage in park when the shifter is placed in the park position. The vehicle may roll unexpectedly if the parking brake is not engaged. Unexpected rolling of the vehicle could result in a crash. Dealers will replace the parking pawl guide plate to correct this concern. The Land Rover recall number is B023.
The brakes may unexpectedly apply due to a failure internal to the yaw rate sensor. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the sensor free of charge to correct the problem.
The mounting bolts for the brake caliper to the axle may be loose. This could call reduced braking power and possible affected wheel lock up. Dealers will inspect the bolts for proper torque.
