    I talked to my dealer today, as my truck has to go in... again.

    I think I may have scared my service rep because I brought up the differential recall. He was relatively surprised that a Mk3 owner would bring that up at all... Basically said to me that it has been delayed slightly, and may not be issued for another few months even, though he was aware of the issue itself.

    re: ** INFO** First Gen L322 Front Differential Issues/Recal

    So in a conversation with my LR dealer (Harwoods, Basingstoke, UK) a couple of weeks ago the service manager mentioned the recall program and told me he'd be in touch during June to schedule the diff repair. My RR is a 2002 4.4 model with 92,000 miles on the clock and as far as I know has not had the diff repaired before (at least if it was, no records in the comprehensive service file that I got with the vehicle). He was surprised that it hadn't failed already.

    Well yesterday I was driving along quite happily near London airport when bang, crunch followed by a loud squealing and no drive in any gear. Dash says "please select Neutral". Had to be recovered back to dealer by breakdown service.

    Spooky timing for the failure or what?

    I urge anyone who has one of these models that has not had a diff failure to get it in to their local LR dealer and demand they do the repair sooner than later. It's not funny being left with no drive at all, I was lucky and managed to coast onto a grass verge by the roadside. You might not be so lucky.

    hi guys ,tried to get on all week and update you but site seemed to be having problems or something,when i logged in it said issue was being sorted..anyways...
    had a phonecall regarding the diff rebuild that range rover would be undertaking on mondy this week to arrange for my vehicle to go in to have the work carried out as they have all parts in and are ready to deal with the workload (Guy Salmon) stockport..
    anyway it went in this morning at 8:30am and i had it back at 2:30pm,new diff fitted and upgraded bits ,
    all i can say is that the noticeable slght groan from driveshaft has totally gone and feels a lot smoother on take of too.
    the service guy said that mine had no signs of wear or tear on it at all, and was lucky as the 1 they had the day before was shot!as they say.so lucky me?
    mine is a 2002 on an 02 plate 4.4 vogue with 50k on the clock.
    anyway been good knowing that this issue was to be resolved and now mine is done,hopefully this will last as it should do and not fail!! good luck to all others taht get theres done

    re: ** INFO** First Gen L322 Front Differential Issues/Recal

    Hi whitesox i sent an email to my dealer (email so that the request was recorded) and i havent had a single phone call or anything.I sent the email as soon as this topic was started, do you have any information that i can present to my dealer so that dont try and wriggle out of doing this. My RR is a 2003 53 4.4 Vogue so it should be covered, its done 60k miles with complete RR S/H.

    Thanks

    Has anyone got the part numbers for the new bits. I had mine replaced about 6 months ago but if there are new parts I want to make sure the dealer cant wriggle out of doing mine because it was replaced recently.

    re: ** INFO** First Gen L322 Front Differential Issues/Recal

    I understand the fix is aleady underway in the UK?

    Question for US Owners - to recap....so from what I'm reading, very shortly US owners of 03-05 RRs can expect a campaign from LRNA to permanently fix the front differential issue? Great news if this is true. But is it true or some more netlore?

    Also, what are the specifics about the new prop tube or differential? Is a U-joint being added or what makes this fix actually work?

    It sure is, however if it not been for this forum I would'nt have known about this upgrade as LR have not been in touch. So thanks to everyone. What is happening in the US.

    I was going to contact Melbourne LR too. Doesn't surprise me that they know nothing. Perhaps a UK or US owner could scan and post a copy of the service recall letter on the forum?
