Land Rover has issued a recall affecting over 58,000 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport SUVs produced between 2018 and 2022. The Range Rover Sport Reverse Camera recall addresses a manufacturing concern involving the backup camera unit in affected vehicles, specifically those equipped with surround-view technology, where the cameras may fail to display a clear image.

The root of the problem lies in water intrusion into the rear camera unit, which can cause the Range Rover Sport reversing camera to display a blurred image or no image at all.

This manufacturing defect can pose significant safety risks, as drivers may lose visibility of pedestrians or obstacles behind their vehicles.

    Here’s what DOESN’T fall under this recall

    Vehicles not affected by this recall include any Range Rover or Range Rover Sport models outside the specified production periods mentioned.

    Additionally, any Range Rover or Range Rover Sport units equipped with backup camera systems not prone to the identified issue are also exempt from this recall. Please consult your vehicle manufacturer or dealership if you have any doubts regarding your vehicle’s status.

    What’s wrong with the Range Rover Surround Camera System?

    Land Rover acknowledges a rising number of field reports concerning Range Rover reversing camera problems, particularly towards the latter part of 2022.

    As a result, the manufacturer launched a thorough investigation into the matter. By February 2023, it was discovered that alterations had been made to the camera design during the 2018 model year. Subsequent investigations and rigorous testing revealed a critical flaw: the camera may not have been adequately sealed, facilitating water ingress into the system.

    How do you fix the Range Rover Sport Backup Camera Issue?

    Land Rover states that it will replace the defective seal to prevent water infiltration into the camera system. If deemed necessary, the backup camera itself will also be replaced. This service comes at no cost to the owners, as is customary for recall repairs.

    Owners can anticipate receiving Land Rover surround camera recall notifications via mail on March 8, 2024. Owners can schedule their vehicles for vehicle repairs by contacting Land Rover at 800-637-6837 and referencing recall number N778. NHTSA’s campaign number for this recall is 24V023.

    In a technical service bulletin (TSB) issued to Land Rover dealerships, the manufacturer recommended constructing a water ingress sealing for the rear-view camera unit.

    The instructions detail installing a new rear-view camera using a special sealing tape. After cutting and folding the tape to a specific size, it’s applied to a designated location and pressed firmly. Another piece of tape is then cut and placed on the new camera before it’s installed with its clamp. Finally, all the clips on the clamp need to be secured.

    How to Check for Range Rover Recalls

    You can easily check for any open recalls affecting your vehicle by visiting the NHTSA’s recall check website. Simply input your car’s 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) into the website’s search tool.

    If no recalls are listed, it indicates that your vehicle doesn’t currently have any open recalls. Since automakers frequently issue recalls, even for older vehicles, we recommend revisiting the website periodically to stay updated on any new recalls that may affect your vehicle.

    Given the potential safety implications associated with a malfunctioning rear camera system, such as a lack of visibility of objects or pedestrians behind the vehicle, prompt action is crucial. If your Range Rover Reverse camera is not working correctly, be sure to schedule your vehicle’s recall repairs as soon as possible to mitigate any potential risks of accidents or collisions.
