Jaguar Land Rover Australia — 2015 Land Rover Defender

Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
Specific vehicles within the VIN range SALLDWBR8FA461900 to SALLDHRP7FA465615

What are the defects?

The front brake pipe from the caliper to the flexible brake hose is showing signs of a chafe condition.

This has occurred on some Defenders that have been subject to an earlier recall (P053 - https://www.productsafety.gov.au/recall/jaguar-land-rover-australia-land...). This may cause brake fluid loss. Brake fluid loss will illuminate a red warning triangle on the instrument cluster instructing the driver to seek qualified assistance before continuing.

What are the hazards?

A loss of brake fluid will result in extended brake pedal travel combined with reduced braking performance. Stopping distances will increase. This will also compromise vehicle stability and significantly increase the risk of an accident.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted directly and requested to contact their nearest Jaguar Land Rover dealer to arrange an inspection and repair of the vehicle.
