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.
