Safety Recall P024 – Rear Driveshaft Coupling
Service Part Affected: Rear Driveshaft Coupling - Service Part Number TVF100010
Dear Land Rover Owner:
This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Land Rover has decided that a defect, relating to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain genuine Land Rover service parts: rear driveshaft coupling; Land Rover part number TVF100010. Your vehicle is included in this recall action.
What is the concern?
A concern has been identified with certain rear driveshaft couplings - Land Rover part number TVF100010 – which may not have been manufactured to the required engineering specification. The rear driveshaft coupling is subject to torque reversals during normal driving situations and a rear driveshaft coupling that is not manufactured to the required engineering design may exhibit the onset of joint separation very early in the component’s life, which will lead to increased levels of driveline vibration. If this increased vibration warning sign is ignored, failure of the rear driveshaft coupling can result. Should this occur, the driveshaft may detach from the vehicle while in motion, resulting in loss of drive and loss of transmission Park functionality which could result in an increased risk of crash or injury.
What will Land Rover and your Land Rover retailer do?
Land Rover is carrying out a voluntary recall of the vehicles mentioned above. An authorized Land Rover retailer will inspect, and if necessary replace, the rear driveshaft coupling with a part manufactured to the required specification. There will be no charge for this repair.
How long will it take?
The work will be carried out as quickly and efficiently as possible in order to minimize inconvenience to customers and is expected to take approximately one (1) hour (depending on vehicle), although your retailer may need your vehicle for a longer time due to service scheduling requirements.
What should you do?
Please contact your authorized Land Rover retailer at your earliest convenience to schedule an appointment to have Safety Recall P024 performed on your vehicle.
Attention Leasing Agencies:
Federal regulations require that you forward this recall notification to the lessee within TEN (10) days.
