Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2005 Land Rover LR3 Owner Comments

Vehicle has a problem that allows water to leak through the sun roof seal and front windshield seal. The water seepage is causing electrical problems with certain vehicle functions; namely the inability to use the key fob remote to lock and unlock the vehicle. The electrical problems at this point appear to be intermittent and resolve themselves several days later, presumably after the water has evaporated. When driving the vehicle after it has been rained on, the trapped water within the ceiling of the vehicle begins to escape and fall through the airbag ports on the A-pillar and from the interior light console. The issue seems to be a common problem with this model when reading various reports on the internet.

My sunroof on my 2005 Land Rover LR3 has same issues as below that was on a previous recall issue of a 2008 LR2 Land Rover recall number #08V055000 the vehicle was built with a sunroof. Failure of either the left or right hand side sunroof guide rail can occur when the sunroof is operated. Excessive stress can develop in the over-molded bracket which could lead to cracking during normal sunroof operation. If cracks occur and propagate in a certain area of the guide rail, fragments of the plastic over-mold material may detach from the guide rail and obstruct the operation of the sunroof. This is not a part in which you need to bring it in and service per the service manual to prevent mechanical breakdown, and the customer can have caused this then normal use.
