Recall Notice R/2004/165 - Land Rover Freelander

Recall Notice R/2004/165 - Land Rover Freelander

Recall Notice R/2004/165

Land Rover Freelander built from 12/08/2003 to 29/08/2003

INCORRECT NUT INSTALLED INTO REAR SUBFRAME
M12 weld nuts has been incorrectly installed, by a body panel supplier, into the rear subframe mountings instead of the correct M14 weld nuts. A bolt that locates the frame to the body did not fit into this nut and was not installed at the vehicle assembly plant. Lack of this bolt could eventually cause the subframe to crack and become deformed. A deformed subframe could potentially lead to instability of the vehicle.

Remedial Action
Recall the vehicles that may be affected and inspect the subframe fixing for fitment and correct clamping. If an incorrect subframe fixing is identified, the subframe will be removed and the body panel will be repaired with a new weld nut.
