    My car which i only had about a year,has still got original diff coupling fitted on this to my 2003 4.4 M62.
    In contact with local dealer today, 10th march 2014,
    who is looking into it for me , doesn't seem to know anything about it but being helpful over phone my car doesn't seem to be coming up on computer for anything well out of the 20-35,000 odd effected , i got to be unlucky if thats the case, , going to get back to me.
    In the meantime if it is indeed recall now finished , what happens to all the l322's that didn't get done , all driving around in a potential accident waiting to happen vehicle, i am getting strange noises from under car , could this be the start of the front diff stating to fail? I not wanting to drive it really.
    What options do i have to remedy if landrover wont do it or acknowledge this issue anymore?
    UPDATE:

    Dealer has now got back to me , and states there is nothing showing on the database for my 2003 model?
    Quoting ' this vehicle does not exist in any field service action'
    Yet the letter to ford shows that 2003,2004,through to 2005 are effected, what makes my 2003 exempt from this recall, i have the orignal coupling that everyone is having repaired,later models than mine are being recalled and repaired?
    The forums member replies above indeed show customers having cars repaired 2003- through to 2005. I not understanding this really, have got back to them to investigate more deeply , not happy with database maybe Thats not correct?

    Update:

    i have been in contact with dealer they have confirmed old part was indeed fitted to my car ( yeah told you all along)but it hadn't failed yet?lol

    (didn't know you had to wait for it to fail 1st)

    Customer services have been brilliant with me, no grovelling required yet from me (refreshing change),
    They have offered goodwill gesture for 85% of replacement!
    Now my dilemma is without sounding ungrateful do i accept and get the job done, knowing that others have had the work carried out totally free of charge and others who had the work done other through land rover were refunded for the work they had done?
    Anyone? Do i pursue for all work done foc?

    Since it is a recall so to speak, have it done by the dealer,

    Our 2004 does not show being repaired either. We called the landrover number and I was advised that there is no record of the work being done. Ours is at 174,000 km's. I was thinking of contacting a dealer to see if they would run the vin and check. Does anyone have a recommendation as to how to approach a dealer for this service or just talk to the service mgr and go from there. Is it possible that ours is ok and will remain so or more likely that a po did it and nothing got recorded. Thanks for reading

    If it was me , i would contact your dealer and make vin enquiry if your car should be done?
    In the uk the dealers are more or less less interested in this prior recall qo41 and simply state is closed now. Landrover customer services more understanding though in my expereience though.
    I am more likely to think where your located is that they would do that for you free of charge , here we have to fight for anything to be done.

    HAD my diff now done. By the dealer

    Peace of mind now , my original diff design had done 82,000 and hadn't failed , just thought it best if i could get land rover to fix to latest update even though diff update now closed they paid 85% towards bill good will gesture
    Well pleased that that area now fixed,will be hopefully one less thing for me to worry about ,
    Leaving me the rest of the car for that.lol

    Hi Bezzy0_0,

    Great ... Do you mind sharing how much you had to shell out of your pocket? Am asking as i have a 2003 TD6 HSE, and planning to check my VIN as well.

    And did you had to pursue the dealer into 85% discount or they were happy to offer it straight away?

    Hi , yeah, i ending up paying around £160 i think not much more , and i didnt do any grovelling whatsoever , landrover customer services who is that i dealt with , were brilliant, they rang very regular to see if i had booked it in dealers, if and when work done and follow up after , allround good service , quite refreshing to be honest , hope that helps
