What are the defects?

Some customers have reported oil leaks from end of the front axle case. In more severe cases customers have reported that the wheel hub assembly and suspension have collapsed up into the wheel arch. In extreme cases the wheel and hub have detached from the vehicle.

What are the hazards?

If the wheel hub assembly and suspension collapse or detach the vehicle stability will be compromised and the degree of directional control minimised, this significantly increases the risk of an accident.

What should consumers do?

Owners will be notified and instructed to take their vehicles to a Land Rover authorised repairer who in the case of certain 110 and 130 vehicles with heavy duty suspension, will have correct to specification replacement front axle case installed (Recall action P047)

All other affected vehicles will have an additional bracket (Recall action P048) mounted to the end of the axle case tube to ensure that in the event of failure, wheel, hub assembly and suspension is retained. In this condition the vehicle will exhibit an oil leak from the failed weld area and it is possible steering will be less precise, steering may be mis-aligned and off centre steering will be degraded. In this condition vehicle stability and control ability is fully maintained.
There will be no charge to owners for this repair.
