Safety Recall Campaign Statement: Front brake pipe replacement for certain 2015 MY Land Rover Defender vehicles
In coordination with the Ministry of Economy -Consumer Protection Department and in line with its commitment to conduct an on-going review of all products in the UAE and provide the consumer with the required protection, Al Tayer Motors, the local importer - dealer of Land Rover vehicles in the UAE, and Premier Motors, the official dealer for Land Rover vehicles in Abu Dhabi, announce a safety recall campaign for certain 2015 model year Land Rover Defender vehicles, manufactured in the UK, for front brake pipe inspection and replacement if necessary.
The affected vehicles are showing signs of a chafe condition in the front brake pipe from caliper to the brake flexible hose. Where the brake pipe is chafed, in some instances it has been reported that a noise is present or loss of brake fluid has occurred.
Brake fluid loss will illuminate a red warning triangle on the instrument cluster instructing the driver to seek qualified assistance before continuing. It will ultimately result in extended brake pedal travel combined with reduced braking performance in the corresponding brake circuit and vehicle stopping distances may increase. Loss of one braking circuit could compro-mise vehicle stability and significantly increase the risk of an accident.
In the UAE, 38 vehicles are estimated to be affected by this recall campaign.
In the interest of delivering the highest standards of Land Rover quality and customer care, Al Tayer Motors/Premier Motors will begin contacting the affected customers to inform them about this recall and request them to bring in their vehicles to have the front brake pipes inspected and adjusted to the correct clearances, if necessary. If there are any signs of damage to the left hand, right hand or both sides of the front brake pipe, the damaged pipe will be replaced free of charge.
Every effort will be made to minimise any inconvenience caused during the short time required for the work to be carried out.
For further clarification, customers may contact the
Al Tayer Motors Customer Care Centre on 800 MOTORS (668677) from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm, Saturday to Thursday.
