Yet another recall has fallen into our laps after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that certain models of the 2010-2011MYLand Rover LR2 Freelander are being recalled because of another potential airbag problem.
Models of the LR2 Freelander built from November 12,2009 to August 23, 2010 are instructed to have the driver’s frontal airbags checked out of suspicion that they may not deploy as intended or, worse, may not deploy at all. The potential problem lies in the shorting bar in the clock spring of the vehicle, which could lead to being disconnected when the air bag module connector is installed.
According to Land Rover , the problem can be fixed by installing a spacer into the driver’s airbag clock spring harness connector, allowing it to function properly and without complication.
Affected owners are instructed to have their vehicles checked with the recall set to begin on or before December 13. If they fall into this group, the repairs will be done at no cost to them. Additional questions regarding the recall can be asked by contacting Land Rover at 800-637-6837.
