IMPORTANT - Discovery series 1 1993MY to 1998MY and Range Rover Classic 1993MY to 1996MY - Recall

Just got a letter for a recall reference A156

relates to leaking fuel tanks.

If you haven't had the letter yet the advice is to contact your prefered
dealer without delay and provide the VIN number.

Work will be done Free of charge.

IMPORTANT
DISCOVERY SERIES 1 1993MY TO 1988MY and RANGE ROVER CLASSIC 1993MY TO
1996MY - SAFETY RELATED CALL.

Subject : Petrol Fuel Tanks - A156

Dear Sir/Madam

Land Rover is undertaking a no-charge Safety Recall (Program NUmber A156) to
owners of 1993 to 1998 Model Year Discovery Series 1 and 1993 to 1996 Model
Year Range Rover Classic Vehicles.

Reason for this program
Investigations have determined that there is a possibility of crakcs
appearing in the fuel tank in certain Discovery Series 1 and Range Rover
Classic models. You may experience a fuel odor from the vehicle and/or signs
of a fuel leak underneath the vehicle when filling with fuel.

What Landrover and the dealer will do
Land Rover is carrying out a voluntary recall of the vehicles mentioned
above. Land Rover Dealerships will replace the fuel tank with one of an
improved design on vehicles within the affected VIN range.

How long will it take?
The work will be carried out as quickly and efficently as possible in order
to minimize inconveinence to customers and is expected to take approximately
two hours, although your dealer may need your vehicle longer due to service
scheuling requirements.

What we are asking you to do
Contact your preferred dealer without delay. Provide the dealer with your
Vehicle identification number (VIN) located at the begining of this letter,
and vehicle registration number. Ask for a service date for safety Recall
Program A156. If you do not have a servicing dealer, please access
www.landrover.com for dealer addresses, maps, and driving instructions.

When you bring your vehicle in , show the dealer this letter. If you
misplace this letter your dealer will still do the work , free of charge.

If you no longer own the vehicle we would be grateful if you will complete
the "change of ownership" slip attached to this letter, returning the slip
to Land Rover Immediately in the enclosed freepost envelope. This will
enable to make contact with the new Owner.

<PHEEEWWW!!>

intriguing. I'd tended to assume that the petrol and diesel ones had the
same tank. Mebbe something in the petrol rots the plastic?

our diesel one is in the age bracket, but obviously isn't a petrol tank...
