So, this is the first ever real RECALL for F-Pace though it seems it isn't too critical because for vehicles in the fields it's a "get it at next opportunity" kinda fix.

Anyone know what a halfshaft is BTW?

SAFETY RECALL: Rear Halfshaft Incorrectly Labelled

VIN (this is a 2017 item only): 054429-054568

CONDITION SUMMARY:

Situation:
An issue has been identified on a limited number of vehicles within the listed Affected Vehicle Range may have been fitted with the incorrect specification rear left-hand halfshaft.

Action:
Retailers are required to HOLD affected new vehicles that are within your control and refrain from releasing the vehicles for new vehicle sale pending completion of the Workshop Procedure detailed in this Technical Bulletin. Unsold vehicles should have this performed as part of the Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) process but must have it completed prior to vehicle handover to the customer.
Affected vehicles already in the hands of customers should be updated at the next available opportunity.

Pretty limited number of vehicles, if I am interpreting the VINs correctly, 139 units.

Halfshaft, a drive axle, one on each side.

Thanks for keeping on top of these!

So I assume this means the FIX , is just for them to put a NEW Label on ???

That means your F-Pace should be in the shop for *2-Days* minimum !!! :eek:

Halfshaft is just another way of saying axle shaft, could be 3 weeks in the shop if they have to go looking for someone who knows how to turn a wrench. :)
