Another tailgate recall for same water problem

Seems the leaking tailgate on electric tailgate models has been upped. Now recalling February to September 2015 builds for the water in controller issue.

But also says it will replace existing water sheilds with a new version. Since they were inly fitted as part of R27 itnis definitely a new recall. Mine is now in the list of vehicles, I don't have a shield but I do have the bolt instead of the rubber plug already.

Cheers, Dave.

Recall is still to be officially announced, will be R67 according to Allpar.

Mines a June 2015 export build and nothing mentioned for mine either.

Cheers, Dave.

I don't understand some of these recalls as we never had one recall on our Trailhawk. And we never had one single problem with it in 13,000 miles either. It was custom ordered in Jan '14 and custom built in Apr '14, but would that have made a difference over a standard production model? I wonder. - Ted

I just checked my 16 limited it says it was built 9 - 15 but doesn't specify the day.

Two questions.

1. Can I check the day somehow?
2. If I just bought the vehicle would they have fixed the problem before selling it to me?
