Potential Number of Units Affected 193,259

 

Summary

Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche) is recalling certain 2003-2020 Porsche Macan, Cayenne, Panamera, and Cayman S vehicles. Please see the recall report for a complete list of all affected models and model years. The caps that cover the low-beam headlight horizontal adjustment screws are missing, which can allow the headlights to be improperly adjusted. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”

 

Remedy

Dealers will inspect the headlights for sealing caps and install missing caps as necessary, free of charge. Owner notification letters were mailed October 28, 2022. Owners may contact Porsche’s customer service at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche’s number for this recall is ANB4.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.nhtsa.gov.

Issue Description

On the affected vehicles, it is possible that a sealing cap which prevents the horizontal adjustment of the main headlights was not fitted during vehicle assembly.

If this is the case, certain legal requirements in the USA and Canada markets are not met.

In order to bring the main headlights into compliance with the legal requirements, the installation of the sealing cap must be checked and, if necessary, a sealing cap must be retrofitted to the adjusting screw for the horizontal adjustment of the headlights.

 


Concerns:

Locking caps in luggage compartment

 

Cause:

There is a possibility that a locking cap that prevents the adjustment of the headlights in the horizontal direction was not installed on the affected vehicles during vehicle assembly.

If this is the case, certain legal requirements will not be met in the USA and Canada markets.

 

Action required:

Check installation of the locking caps and retrofit a locking cap in the front luggage compartment on the left and right if necessary.

 


Chronology :

In May of 2022, Porsche’s production plant in Leipzig discovered missing sealing caps in vehicles for the Canadian market. Porsche immediately began investigating the scope of the affected vehicles, including past production records.

Porsche in parallel studied whether the missing sealing cap was necessary to prevent the potential for adjustment, and how the agency addressed questions concerning the sealing caps in past petitions. This work continued through August 2022.

On August 24, 2022, Porsche decided that the subject issue was a noncompliance with S10.18.9.2 of FMVSS No. 108.
