Body, Interior & Misc., November 12, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview

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.
