To overcome inconsistent front right hand door latch operating loads which could identified as ‘bounce’ when the door is closed and to prevent any further customer annoyance Land Rover are implementing a campaign to check the operation of the door latch. The result of this check will introduce a new extended length screw fitted to the upper exterior latch fixing, and in extreme cases the fitment of a new latch. Investigations by Land
Rover Engineers have found that due to a tolerance build up during vehicle manufacture the outer frame leg may contact the upper corner of the latch in the interior of the door. The fitment of the extended length screw
eliminates this contact and reduces the latch operating load.
At the first opportunity either, Pre-delivery Inspection, warranty remedial work, service interval inspect all vehicles.
