Land Rover has issued a recall on certain versions of its Range Rover SUV due to a connector that may come loose and in the process render an airbag inoperative. The recall affects Range Rovers from the 2013 and 2014 model years, of which there are said to be 3,912 examples in the country.

In the affected vehicles, the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) connector located in the seats of the driver and front passenger may become disconnected due to insufficient clearance in the connector’s housing.

Should the connector become detached, side airbags for either the driver or front seat passenger may not function. In the event of a crash necessitating side airbag deployment, those sitting up front are faced with increased risk of injury.

Land Rover is in the process of notifying owners of the affected vehicles. The solution calls for dealers to modify the area around the connector to prevent it from becoming detached, a service they will offer free of charge.
