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.
Land 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.
The sunroof glass may bind on opening and closing due to a bracket that may crack and cause a restriction. The glass could fall inside the vehicle with force. Dealers will install retention inserts to both sides of the glass panel guide rails free of charge to resolve the concern.
On certain LR3 and Range Rover Sport vehicles. There is a misalignment between the steering column and air bag clock spring. This may cause a break in the airbag wiring and lead to the SRS Safety Restraint System light coming on. A bad circuit may also prevent the air bag from deploying, leading to injury or death. The dealer will insert 1mm spacers between the left hand side of the column switch mounting point and column lock to improve alignment of the column switch. Two foam pads will also be fitted to the top of the steering column switch gear to provide clearance between the cowl and clock spring face. The Land Rover recall # is P045
Certain aftermarket Thule hitch style bicycle racks with fold down style bike arms. A pinch bolt exists between the bike arm bracket and the upright assembly of the hitch style bicycle rack.

Thule will provide a repair kit and instructions free of charge
Some sport utility vehicles may have fuel tanks that contain a out of specification breather pipe. This may result in deterioration of a grommet and result in pipe detaching from tube. When the Fuel level is above the the level of the joint, fuel may enter the breather pipe.This may cause rough engine running, stalling, hard starts, hesitation, and misfires. If the Vapor canister becomes saturated, the fuel may leak and cause a fire hazard. Dealer will replace fuel tanks free of charge. The Land Rover recall # is P001
Certain vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard # 114 "Theft Protection" . After a period of time with the ignition switched off it is possible to remove the key while not being in park. This could result in unintended movement of the vehicle, causing a crash. The dealer will reprogram the driveline control transfer box electronic control unit free of charge. The Land Rover recall # is B037
Certain vehicles fitted with 19" diameter wheels may encounter a condition where a wheel balance weight can contact the left front brake hose, ABS wheel speed sensor lead, and/or the brake pad wear sensor lead resulting in damage to the wiring and/or brake hose. Damage to the wiring can cause the ABS or brake sensor warning light to illuminate. Damage to the brake hose can result in reduced braking efficiency, which increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the left front brake flexi-pipe assembly and replace it if it exhibits signs of chafing. They will also replace the left front "clip-on" wheel weights with "stick-on" weights to correct these concerns. The Land Rover recall number is B039.
