    Summary

    CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARDS NO. 105, "HYDRAULIC AND ELECTRIC BRAKE SYSTEMS," AND NO. 135, "PASSENGER CAR BRAKE SYSTEMS."

    THIS CAN PRODUCE AN UNEXPECTED INCREASE IN STOPPING DISTANCE, WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR TOTAL LOSS OF SERVICE BRAKING FUNCTION, WHICH COULD RESULT IN A CRASH.

    Remedy

    DEALERS WILL STRENGTHEN THE ABS MODULATOR ASSEMBLY VALVE COVERS AND REPLACE THE RETAINING BOLTS. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXEPCTED TO BEGIN DURING MAY 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT LAND ROVER AT 1-800-637-6837.

    Summary

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH ACTIVE CORNERING ENHANCEMENT (ACE). THE HIGH-PRESSURE HYDRAULIC PIPE THAT RUNS FROM THE ACE PUMP TO THE ACE VALVE BLOCK COULD FRACTURE AT ITS UNION WITH THE PUMP.

    Consequences

    THIS WILL RESULT IN A LOSS OF HYDRAULIC FLUID. A LOW FLUID LEVEL CAN SUBSEQUENTLY RESULT IN SYSTEM PUMP FAILURE WHICH WILL THROW OFF THE AUXILIARY DRIVE BELT, RESULTING IN A LOSS OF ENGINE AUXILIARY FUNCTIONS (POWER STEERING ASSIST, WATER PUMP, ALTERNATOR, AND AIR CONDITIONING). IN EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCES, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THE HYDRAULIC FLUID COULD IGNITE, RESULTING IN AN ENGINE COMPARTMENT FIRE.

    Remedy

    DEALERS WILL INSTALL NEW HYDRAULIC TUBING.
