A number of reports have been received that have detailed intermittant operation of reverse lights when reverse gear is selected. Investigation by factory
engineers has identified a tolerance issue that had arisen during gearbox build. This concern has now been addressed at point of manufacture by a design
change to the gearbox quadrant on the Defender and gearbox yoke on the Discovery. A service fix, as detailed following, has been developed for
vehicles in use.
Upon customer complaint of reverse lights remaining on or intermittant operation, remove and discard the washer from behind the reverse light switch, if
reverse lights still remain on due to a faulty switch, renew the switch. Please submit a Product Report providing full vehicle details.
