Would you dare try & take it off her????????
Does anybody know if the replacement racks are fitted with revised spec bolts, or are the replacements liable to the same failure after a few years corrosion? If they've revised the spec when did they start fitting them to new builds, or haven't they yet. Anybody asked?
So, read your original post, that would imply MY18 onwards should be ok if JLR have responded with an update (mine is MY18 but 1st reg 11/17 so could be either I guess ).In my original post about the recall (Canada) the fix says:
"Dealers will replace the aluminum mounting bolts with coated steel bolts and will apply a corrosion-preventative sealer around the gear housing and connecting bolts. If a bolt is found to be broken or breaks during the course of the repair, a replacement steering gear will be installed."
So hopefully the UK (and new vehicles) are using coated bolts and sealer...
Yes.Hi. Went to get in my 15 evoque this morning and the steering has locked terrible noise if try to turn it and it not going anyway. was fine when i parked it last night? how does it go over night? called AA came and looked said had similar one only last week. car currently with local JLR awaiting them to look at it. Think it this common fault. I presume not under warranty as car 4.5 years old. Are JLR now admitting there a fault and paying for the repair? I have a new evoque on order due next month and really can't be paying out £3k for a car that's only 4.5 years old and done 50k miles, full JLR service history. the garage said they can not look at it until Monday which is already annoying. I mentioned there appears to be a common issue and the service receptionist not saying anything. should i be phoning land rover complaints or anything?
