Brake wiring recall.

Post by Alex_O » Mon Mar 22, 2021 1:43 pm

Got a letter from my dealer this morning saying my car was subject to a recall due to a possibly incorrectly fitted brake wiring harness. Thought I'd post this as a heads-up to anyone else with a MY21 model.

Thanks for the heads up on this, i wonder when it was picked what build dates it affects. Mine was built this side of the new year, collected just a couple of weeks back.

I'm not sure what dates it affects. Stock labels on various trim parts show the car was built around December 10th, collected just before Christmas.

No outstanding recalls on mine. So they must have corrected either during build or PDI.

Didn't wait for the recall letter so I phoned my dealer this morning. Got the car booked in for two weeks today, told it was a 20 minute job. Don't think they want a lot of people hanging around inside the building at the same time so booking is being pretty strict.
