DMFlywheel being checked (replaced?) under recall??

Thats true, but quite a few people have replaced the DMF, possibly without realising there was a recall.
What is slightly odd is if it only showed up on this MOT and no-one else's...
 
Found it;

Recall Notice A/D211 dated 05/05/00
MODEL/DERIVATIVE AFFECTED RANGE:
DEFENDER Td5 Manual gearbox derivatives XA145775 to YA181042
DEFENDER Td5 CKD Manual gearbox derivatives XF829247 to XF833265
DISCOVERY Series II Manual gearbox derivatives XA200000 to YA244647 XA900000 to XA907209
DISCOVERY Series II CKD Manual gearbox derivatives XA920000 to XJ920147

Engine number range
10P00001a to 10P38890A
Build date range September 1998 to June 1999

PROBLEM:
DUAL MASS FLYWHEEL ΠMATERIAL SPECIFICATION

CAUSE:
High energy inputs into the clutch and flywheel system may lead to structural failure of the flywheel assembly. The energy inputs may cause the flywheel to exhibit surface cracks, which under certain conditions could propagate, resulting in loss of drive due to the clutch slipping. In extreme conditions the flywheel could fragment resulting in extensive damage to the clutch bell housing.

ACTION:

To protect the long term integrity of the flywheel assembly Land Rover are implementing recall action on all Discovery and Defender Td5 manual models within the affected VIN range.
All vehicles within the affected VIN range shown above will require the flywheel assembly to be replaced. Where necessary, after visual inspection, replacement of associated clutch parts may be required if consequential wear is noted.
All vehicles currently held in stock, demonstrators and showroom vehicles must have the flywheel replaced prior to the vehicle being despatched to a customer.

PROCEDURE
DURING THE FLYWHEEL REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE, ASSOCIATED CLUTCH COMPONENTS MUST BE INSPECTED TO
DETERMINE IF EXCESSIVE WEAR EXISTS. THE WORKSHOP MANUAL INSTRUCTIONS DESCRIBE THE WEAR CHARCATERISTICS THAT EACH OF THE COMPONENTS SHOULD BE EXAMINED FOR, AS SOME OF THESE COMPONENTS MAY NOT REQUIRE REPLACEMENT.

It must be noted that zero mileage vehicles ie showroom/stock and CKD vehicles will only require the flywheel and fixings to be replaced.

THE FOLLOWING CARE POINTS MUST BE OBSERVED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE WORKSHOP MANUAL REPAIR PROCEDURE.

•If the flywheel face exhibits any surface cracks the clutch assembly must be replaced.
•Flywheel bolts MUST be tightened to 40Nm (+) 90 degrees.
•Remove the existing grease from the release bearing guide tube and replace with a THIN coating of Molibdium Disulphide grease.
•Clean the fulcrum arm and nylon insert within the clutch release mechanism, remove any old grease and inspect for wear as described in the workshop manual, additionally if the fulcrum insert is loose or deformed in any way the fulcrum assembly MUST be replaced. If the original components are being replaced or renewed apply a small amount of Molibdium Disulphide grease to both components prior to re-asembly.
•If a new clutch plate is being fitted ensure that the plate is free to travel along the constant pinion spline prior to fitment.
•Clutch cover fixings MUST be tightened to 22 to 28 Nm.
•Check the crankshaft spigot for scoring and uneven wear characteristics, if necessary replace the spigot bearing.
•Road test the vehicle and check for clutch functionality.
•Apply a white paint mark identification to the two bonnet lock fixings.
(You know the 'pin' on the bonnet that goes into a circular catch plate? Well it's the bolts holding the circular catch plate that should have the white paint).
•Endorse the service record book.

I find it a bit strange that no one else seems to have had this recall....
Well I was going to ask if you had any info on the recall when it was actually happening.. How long back and normally there would be some information to the dealers from the company about what they should actually do for the recalled vehicles..
Edit..
Ahhh I see Mike has the details.. I'll have a read👍
 
Well I've just been over to the dealer as I wanted to be absolutely sure they weren't going to pull a fast one on me.......but no!!
Had it on the ramp, agreed that all the parts will be replaced FOC, just waiting on some parts being available but they assure me that the've been ordered as "Critical" so lets see what happens!
Sounds like a good result to me, just hope it all goes well and the parts arrive!!
Watch this space.......!!!!
