Range Rover brake fault recall.

2013 and 2014 models of both Range Rover and Range Rover Sport vehicles sold in Australia are being recalled to fix a potential brake system fault.

Affecting vehicles fitted with the supercharged 3.0 litre V6 and supercharged 5.0 litre V8 engines, the Australian Competition and Consumer will oversee the recall of just less than a total of 100 vehicles.

The ACCC saying that the Brake Vacuum Hose may be incorrectly installed on the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport vehicles. Incorrect routing of the brake vacuum hose can lead to a chafing condition, eventual rupture of the hose and complete loss of vacuum assistance in the braking system.

If this was to happen then vehicle braking distance may be increased, potentially causing a crash.

Owners will be notified and instructed to take their vehicles to a Land Rover authorised repairer who will re-position the brake vacuum hose to the correct routing. The technician will also put a double ‘C’ clip in the correct orientation and position.
