Land Rover Recall B039: Front Brake Flexi-Hose Chafes

This may lead to warnings of premature brake pad wear, warnings of ABS failure, or extended brake pedal travel and loss of one of the hydraulic service braking system circuits, which could result in a crash.

On certain vehicles fitted with 9J-19 inch diameter wheels, during certain vehicle maneuvers when the steering system is on full left lock and the suspension is moving towards full compression, the left front brake hose and/or the ABS wheel speed sensor lead and/or the brake pad wear warning sensor lead can catch on the wheel balance weight as the wheel rotates.
Dealers will inspect the left front brake flexi-pipe assembly and replace it if it exhibits signs of chafing, and also to replace the left front 'clip-on' wheel balance weights with 'stick-on' wheel balance weights. The recall began on June 30, 2006. Owners may contact Land Rover at 1-201-818-8500.
