Due to a manufacturing problem, the vehicle-sensitive locking mechanism may not lock as intended when the vehicle decelerates or is tilted to a significant extent. In addition, since the moulded ribs have not been fully formed in the injection-moulding machine, the sensor axis in the mechanism may become detached or dislodged.
In the event of sudden braking before an accident or if the vehicle is too tilted, the occupant of the right-hand front-row seat may not be restrained as intended and is therefore exposed to an increased risk of injury.
The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque models affected by this recall were manufactured between 16 February and 8 March 2021.
